Link for the Batch Tool to be used with the DX200. Directions for the installation the first time are not hard but must be followed for the BT to work. A Windows based computer has to be used. This can be on Mac if you have Parallels or a program that allows Windows on your Mac. If a file is in a .rar you will need to download an app to open the .rar.

 

Firmware:

Batch Tool:

http://www.ibasso.com/uploadfiles/download/FactoryTool_v1.39_DX200.zip

 

The instructions for the use of the BT are included with the download. The BT wipes the internal memory and does a clean install of the FW. This can be handy at times when other methods of a FW update fail or if there are problems that a normal FW update does not solve.

Hi Paul,

 

Finally I'm able to update the firmware, with generous help from another headfi member tkteo (thanks a lot!).

 

After that I retry myself and managed to update again, the root cause of previous failure should be due to I didn't manage to download a good/complete zip file from iBasso website, anyway just to share below the final steps i did and successful updated for other ppl reference:

 

1) Download the firmware from iBasso official site

    (a) Better do not use any 3rd party download manager software but use the browser direct download

    (b) Ensure the download is completed, check the file size

2) Unzip the downloaded file - for 1 times only

    (a) This is the difference of my experience between failed to update and successful to update

    (b) If you are unable to unzip the file using windows default unzip or 7-zip, then no need to proceed already, it means the downloaded file has problem. I tried to download at least 4 times and all failed to unzip, which led to failure to update software eventually.

    (c) If able to unzip, then can proceed, you will see a folder, inside have a readme.txt and another zipped file (file name ending with ota.zip), this zipped file no need to unzip, leave it there.

3) Copy the ota.zip zipped file to SD card root folder (means not in any folder)

    (a) Make sure the SD card was formatted in FAT32 or exFAT before you copy.

    (b) On DX200, go to setting -> About DX200 -> System updates -> Local update -> locate the ota.zip then click update, the update will start if verified successful (i kept failing here yesterday).

    (c) if the update started, remember do not power off or interrupt the update until it reboot automatically and completed.

 

I'm enjoying the DX200 now :)

This works for installation also:

Paste the tidal url and click Generate Download link then download it. Now you have tidal APK.

Now to your DX200, go to setting > Security > Unknown sources turn it on.


Plug DX200 to your pc /mac, make sure it's in File Transfers mode then copy / move Tidal APK to where ever you want. Open file explorer, go to where you put APK, then open it. Install >> Enjoy

 

 

The latest Firmware updates. Just click to link.

Ok wow im impressed paul. Any specs on this yet?

Looks ak-ish though.
post #3 of 6043

OMG. So hyped waiting for its spec. 

 

The design makes me cry with excitement.

post #5 of 6043
i like the third one the best.
post #6 of 6043

I got the DX100 when it first released many years ago, good SQ but junk UI. Hopefully the DX200 will have both good UI and SQ.

 

As for the look, I will vote for #3 as I need the side buttons to change/pause songs while the DAP is in pocket. And #3 is less similar to AK....

 

And, yet another AK style DAP....

post #7 of 6043

Dual Sabre 9018, dual microSD and UI similar to the DX80 will do it for me

+ a user replaceable battery and it it looks like it has, hopefully. Well, designs 1 and 3 do.

It does look like it might have a replaceable battery, but if it lasts at least as long as the DX80 its not a deal breaker for me.

Just be thankful they are not copying the FIIO Scroll Wheel......:veryevil:

post #12 of 6043

Love the 3rd one,has to have streaming capabilities,plenty of power and digital outputs,picked up a mint DX100 a few weeks ago and love the sound and build.

post #13 of 6043
Why on earth the ak copy???
post #14 of 6043

Great news! My favorite one is second one.

post #15 of 6043

Second one for me. Looks to have more depths by the arrangement and the color scheme looks more premium and solid among the three.
