    Wow - UAPP quality is very good, at least with my Focal Clears is great, still to try with IEM´s but not a "use case" for me since it doesn't play tidal offline albums, so OTG I'll only play local music on Mango OS.

    Thanks @BaHo. I tried but it always gave me an error the device was not associated. A moment ago just "by miracle" :-) my iBasso is showing as an associated device on play.google.com ... !!! so I just purchased from there - still to try but seems fine now. Thanks guys

    Thanks. No, only that one, it seamed from a reliable source. But I can try others. I thought Google Play Store was something like App Store from iOS, it seems not, its a PITA to get a straight reliable "official" link even from Google, I had to cross a jungle of crocodiles just to get this apk...

    Man, I must be very dumb, so after a few attempts and searches I musk ask for help: How can I install UAPP on my DX220? Apkpure is a kind of "app store" right? (I did install Tidal from there) but I can't find UAPP there so my guess is only on Google Play store? As I don't find a google play...

    You can play you offline Tidal tracks on Mango OS ??? Are they stored on the card accessible from other apps? That would be awesome

    Hi guys, I'm starting a Tidal hifi trial, have my home system streamer ok but before looking at DX229 options, just a quick question: What's the best option sound quality wise? use Tidal app from store or any better alternative? I would like to use iBasso as an offline device, storing music on...

    Focal Clear headphones

    Take a look at the hybrid Pro-Ject Pre box RS2 (tube stage is only for the pre out, not headphones) It has dual ESS9038Q2M DAC chips so some people might think it would be too analytical or bright with Clears but no, its a perfect match IMHO, full body, clear, detailed but not harsh or tiring at...

    Focal Clear headphones

    Never heard too - Can you please send a link to that history of failed drivers? Thanks

    Absolutely. Clear is a tiger, I don’t want to jail it in a zoo

    Focal Clear headphones

    I never heard a R2R DAC so I can't imagine how far are the "relaxed" highs, I imagine for the reviews I've read they would be a good match to Focal Clear. Unfortunately Denafrips ARES 2 doesn't have a headphone jack, it only works as a preamp - and surely is the primary function I'm looking for...

    Focal Clear headphones

    Thanks. I've seen some reviews saying it had a good full body so that's a surprise for me. Couldn't that be adjusted with the PEQ? I guess the settings are by output so I could dial some attenuation on mids/highs on 1/4 jack and still have the original signal on RCA out for my PRE, no? Regards

    Focal Clear headphones

    Thanks @vonBaron @pbarach - I've looked at Marantz, also at Audiolab MDAC, some mixed reviews on both. RME ADI-2 FS has very good reviews too. Denafrips Ares 2 looks interesting but not having a distributor in Europe and import customs are a let down. Didn't know about that Hegel, will take a...

    I don't think it matters. AFAIK its the same circuit, by other words when you burn on the SE output, all the circuit on the amp is active and burning. I might be wrong My 2 cents

    Focal Clear headphones

    Wow! How on earth??? thanks for warning :) Did you try/clean those pads, how and how many times may I ask? Thanks

    Great! I can´t imagine other reason than the one pointed by @CobraMan - enjoy. If I were you I would disconnect it again to see if I would gain another +2 hours ... just in case... :sob:

    The risk is that you shouldn’t plug/unplug any powered device. Current peaks, shortcuts, etc. i.e. If you misalign the pins when changing amps you can ruin the amp, dx220, or both

    There are several posts on hot swapping amps to get more power out of AMP9. But iBasso implemented the new gain switch just for AMP9 precisely to get that more power without that risk, and, "eventually" delivering the enough power for some needs - maybe that´s not enough for some headphones...

    I didn’t try AMP8 but would advise you to try the tube AMP9, sounds great with Focal Clear which is a very analytical and “clear” headphone. Actually this is my reference combo on portable music. I think Clear loves tube amps

    How “they don’t allow returns” ? Did you buy it in Europe? You’re protected by a 15 day return with “no questions asked”. I’ve said this soooo maaaaaaany times, my DX229 battery lasts between 6 and 8 hours easily playing random flac 44 and hires tracks. I’m picking it today after taking 2...

    Hi, search would be a welcome feature, TBH I don’t miss it really since you can scroll fast A-Z by album name, artist and track. One of my other latest routines has been as @fokta mentioned, shuffle all tracks. This makes my avoid the temptation of repetitively selecting some preferred albums...

    Have you tried Mango OS? It makes all the difference if you have a decent pair of headphones

    Sounding fantastic in Mango as usual. Yes, it seems more airy but with a sweet balance all across the FR I guess my IEMS will love it, for later... Is my brain playing tricks or in Mango, the scroll bars are +1mm far from the edge? It seems easier to scroll with the stock case. Very pleased...

    No way, links were helpful for many for sure, I tried and struggled a bit when I just realized iBasso have published the download. My post intended to easy things a bit for people that didn’t upgrade yet. Regards
