    DX220 A new view to your music. *** Latest Firmware: 1.18 Local *** Link for User Guide 1st Page. AMP9 Now available! And DC01.

    Thanks for that. Totally forgot I had installed Lurker's firmware. Never thought about that causing the problem. Think I'll probably just switch back to the stock firmware... since I'm mostly using Mango OS lately. And I think someone said Google Play works with the latest firmware now...

    Can anyone else verify this?... DX220, latest firmware, Amp9, Mango OS... Amp9 Output Option will not stay set on High after DX220 is powered off/on. Always reverts to Low. Not a huge deal... but gets a little annoying having to set it every time. Thanks.

    Astell&Kern new flagship A&Ultima SP2000

    2 things... 1) If the sound really changes from the case being on or off the device, then you should be able to keep the device playing, and hear the sound change as you slide it into and out of the case. Does this happen? 2) If the case really changes the sound, then another thing that should...

    Definitely worth checking out amp 7. I had it before amp 8, when I didn't have a balanced cable (w/ Westone W80 and DHC silver se cable). Later, I had balanced cables, and with all the high praise for amp 8, wondered if I might be missing something. The answer was no. Amp 7 seems basically like...

    What do you mean exactly "DX220's lifeless without Neutron"? You mean sound is different with Neutron? Or functionally DX220 is "lifeless" without Neutron? Due to Neutron EQ? Or what exactly?

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    You'll like the SP1000 then. I have the SP1000m, SE100, DX200, and DX220. The SP1000m has a very "rich" and smooth mid range that is layered and detailed, while not being at all harsh. The DX220 doesn't quite do that. But while the SP1000m does have great low end, the DX220 with both amps 7 and...

    I agree with you brown is boring... and isn't yellow just a lighter shade of brown or green? Just not a fan of "high tech" being clothed in brown, green, yellow. I mean if iBasso thought that particular "yellow" was so great... they would've made the player that color. But they didn't, did...

    Greyed out shuffle after the update on my DX220 Mango mode screen, too. Did NOT go away after restart.

    Are there any known issues with USB connection for file transfers? When I attempt to connect to a Win10 PC for file transfer, the DX220 connects to the computer, at least for a short while. It charges. I can see it in Device Manager (indicates DX220), but it indicates device is not functioning...

    Excuse my ignorance... I haven't followed iBasso for a while, but have an original DX200 with almost all amp modules, and just got a DX220... How is the Fan Edition of Amp8 different from the stock standard Amp8? Mainly just curious. Thanks.

    Double Helix Cables Thread

    It's only been 2 months. You saw on their page that lead time could be 8-12 weeks when you ordered, didn't you? Just be patient and don't bombard him with emails. Wait the 8-12 weeks and see if it shows up. If not, then start emailing once a week or so asking when you might expect it. You will...

    Astell&Kern new flagship A&Ultima SP2000

    I think what you're referring to is 192 kHz sample rate limitation. In the case of the RME, that's due to almost all professional DACs are limited to this sample rate because there's no real necessity in professional use for it being higher. But a 192 kHz sample rate is not a "limitation" in...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    If you can stand the wait, there's nothing better than Double Helix Cables' Clone Silver. No alloys, pure metals, soft-ish, pliable, sturdy outer jacket, and stellar workmanship & sound quality. Not inexpensive, but not ridiculously artificially jacked up prices for relatively basic alloy or...
