    iBasso DX120 pure DAP player. Balanced, single ended, line out and 2 micro SD slots. FW 2.9.21 now out!

    I use Beyerdynamic DT770 (80 ohms) converted by Custom Cams to Balanced Input with a Balanced cable. I converted to Balanced Output because I did not think SE was adequate. If your Father's DT1990 are 250 ohms I would think they may struggle. I am no expert, I can only comment on my own experiences.

    I have had the DX120 since mid September 2018 and have not experienced any charging problems. I use a Samsung USB Mains charger and never takes more than 2 hours to charge from 20%. It runs for about 7 hours down to 20%. I play Flac 16 bit and 24 bit. I use 2 x 400Gb Sandisk cards. I load the...

    Paul asked me to return it to iBasso, which I did, and they replaced it straight away. I have had the replacement a few months now, and have had no problems. superb DAP.

    I have a number that do not show the Artwork. One in particular I have been experimenting with, I tried at 300KB; 500KB & 839KB. It just shows no Artwork. I have been using MP3Tag for years, some I have a problem with others I do not. It has been more pronounced since I moved from the DX90 to...

    I use MP3Tag to identify all my albums, but I am finding quite a few are not showing the Artwork on the DX120. The artwork shows in the relavent files on my PC, but just blank (in some instances) on the DX120. Any ideas of the cause, and hence the remedy.

    I did see it connected, but then again one can connect anything as long as it has a USB C connection. Just by connecting does not mean it will function the same as SDXC drives in Ports 1 and 2. Judging by your comments it does appear that it works adequately. I have since been into the Manual...

    Does the DX120 have the OTG software to allow External Flash drives to act as external storage devices using the USB C port?

    I like the look of the case, but I do not like built-in stands or belt hooks. Does this case have a built-in stand? Is there likely to be a UK Distributor, or do we have to purchase from America?

    I accept that as a given, but how do you access the DX120 ROM from the Menus available?

    In the loading Instructions it states load it into the Internal Memory. The DX120 does not have internal Memory? Am I missing something?

    I was not aware that it came with a Screen Protector fitted. So I now have two Screen Protectors on my DX120. It still responds to my touch without any problem.

    I have managed to do a factory reset as I could vaguely see a box with a Tick, even though I could not see any narrative. It then went through the Factory Reset. I then checked that it had the latest Firmware installed. Very odd that the screen "Greys" out after Installation of the Updated Firmware.

    I would love to do a factory reset but all segements are greyed out so I am unable to ascertain which segment is Factory Reset. Surely on should be able to see everything clearly on the screen?

    I have read the manual and the instructions that came in the readme File. It states that the DX120 will re-boot when completed. How long does it take to update? I looked after five minutes and it was showing everything in a grey state. I assumed it had re-booted. I can go into Settings and...

    I have installed the Update and waited for it to re-boot as per the instructions. Why is all the wording greyed out. Does that not mean it has not automatically re-booted and I i have to turn it on/off manually to do a factory reset?

    What does the Ohm for a headphone means? (ex. DT 880 250 Ohm..)

    Excuse my ignorance, but can you reduce the Impedance of a pair of Headphones to improve the volume( without resorting to an External Amplifier)?

    If you look at my previous comment you will see you should have no problem. It handles my 2 x 400 gb SD cards with no problems. All my music is in FLAC 16bit and 24bit. I doubt if you will overwhelm the DX120 if you use the Folder/Directory option. I have seperate Folders for different Genre...

    I have just received my second DX120 (as the first malfunctioned and returned to iBasso). I put my 2 x Sandik Ultra 400gb into Port1 & 2. and turned on the DX120. One card has just under 10gb free and the other 40gb. I went to directory, chose SD1, it then listed everything on the card, without...

    Sorry, I did not mean the specific Headphones. I was asking would it be better to acquire 80 ohm or 250 ohm Headphones for domestic use?

    Interesting. I am acquiring DT770 modded by Custom Cans and the dual outputs will be using 4 Pin Mini XLR connectors. Are you saying they will not work with the DX120?

    Lurker, a question if I may. I am ordering modified Beyerdynamic TD770 (to Dual entry), but I have to choose between 80 ohm and 250 ohm. Could you advise which to choose for use with the DX120? Thank you in advance.

    Well, I went on to listen to the music for 3 hours, so if that is what you call browsing? so be it. As I said I cannot remember going in and scanning the cards, but if I did it was very quick. With the DX90 I never scanned the card completely, it merely scanned the file when I chose to play it...

    Can you believe that the only company I can find in the UK is Custom Cans. They will do rewiring, but getting them to give you a quote or Purchase from them is a pain. They take an age to answer a query, so reaching a conclusion is extremely difficult. As there are a limited number of Headphones...

    The cards are Sandisk Ultra 400GB Class 10. I did not format them specifically, in fact I have probably purchased 30/40 cards over the years, and I have never formatted a card . Out of the packaging I loaded the Files onto them using my Card Reader in my PC. I then placed them in the Dx120 and...
