    Sennheiser Amperiors - Silver in Mint Condition -SOLD

    Clearing out some headphones... I bought these new two years ago for use with my iPhone. While similar looking to HD25s these have metal cups and have more bass though not overly heavy. Great for most music listening. Replaced by a pair of Urbanites I may as well sell these. Also selling a...

    Sennheiser HD600 - Mint condition -SOLD

    Got them in a trade a couple years back but hardly used as I later purchased a pair of HD700s. Comes in original box. Pads in perfect condition too. Doubt they've had more than 20 hours on them. Previous owner said he tested them only and I believe him. Also selling a pair of Amperiors. See...

    Rockbox for iBasso DX50 dual boot with stock firmware

    Maybe your problem... Not sure if others are all the same but to navigate through the options in RB recovery I have use the tip of my headphone plug tapped against the top outlet to cycle through them. The up/down with volume buttons does not work. Early owners of DX50s would have known this as...

    Rockbox for iBasso DX50 dual boot with stock firmware

    +1000 I absolutely echo that comment. The new CWM method has me customising my DX50 with my preferred themes. Could not get either my head nor computer around ADB!   I simply attached my DX50 to my computer via USB of course, and copied the theme files from source folders into the...

    Rockbox for iBasso DX50 dual boot with stock firmware

    You have to tell RB through the settings which folders to scan. They are found in /mnt/external_sd.   Go to: Settings, General Settings, +Database, Select Directories to Scan and navigate to  /mnt/external_sd. press and hold on this folder. They are selected when you see a green arrow before...

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    I should add, that the above is not the only way to go... simply, that this method works in all my iDevices, Androids and DAPs without issues. I'm sure there are other variations that work equally consistently.

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    Matt, I wrote you in November with this post... http://www.head-fi.org/t/630288/the-new-iriver-ak100-a-high-end-dap/7470#post_9948801 in which I outlined what you need to do and In my above post, I confirmed that the only tags you need are:   Title Album (Name) Artist Album Artist Track #...

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    I really don't disagree with that Matthew... spending that sort of money you expect perfection. But who said Apple's file protocol is the right one? Could it be theirs is the hybrid causing your issues? I believe it is part of the issue.   Because it worked in an iPod and not in your AK100 is...

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    I'm sorry to disagree with you but the vast majority of issues like Matthew's are user related, commonly poor tagging and folder structures or lack of familiarity with the device. Mind you some decent manuals would be useful. And instead of being discouraged, quite often, including Matthew's...

    iBasso DX100 24Bit/192KHz Reference Digital Audio Player - SOLD

    My DX100 has been barely used since buying a desktop headphone amplifier. Purchased new in January 2013 the device is unmarked and comes with all its accessories and in the original box and packaging. With 64Gb on board memory and the ability to add another 64Gb (so long as you reformat a SDXC...

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    Different animal. Sound similar but different features. Storage, outputs, gain, USB-OTG vs USB-DAC, size, build, UI, FW, responsiveness, etc... DX represents great value but I still was missing the AK.

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    I guess I should try selecting a genre and shuffle and see what happens seeing I have another AK.

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    Just one at a time! Sold the two previous ones. In order had a std AK100 traded up to a DX100. Then purchased a 2nd hand RWAK which I sold in a moment of weakness to Matt. Just bought another std one from a member here. Have some IEMs that seem to work with the higher IO. And still have a DX100...

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    Hi Matt, I never noticed this when I had the AK. I guess because I tend to listen to whole albums or playlists. The latter I did shuffle but still never noticed this. What I find curious is how you can choose shuffle for the entire song list. I would never do that because of my diverse...

    The iBasso DX50 Thread - Latest firmware: 1.9.5 - June 30, 2016

    Yep.. don't have the GR07 but of the Shures and Westones, the W4R sounds nicer. But nicer again is the UM3x as it overcomes that edge some other people have referred to. Just a bit warmer, nice mids and highs and no sibilance or hiss (at least with my wooden ears).

    Hey DG... no worries and no need for an apology... heck it's a hobby, not a profession! And I guess that is where little guys like iBasso fit in. They are small guys, probably as much enthusiasts trying to make a buck from their interest. I mean that's how Gates and Jobs started off! And going...

    You've completely misunderstood me. I certainly did not intend to criticise you if you took it that way. You should be commended for trying to help out.    I am not sure if you've been reading this thread since the beginning so you may also have missed my many posts about cleaning tags and so...

    What a great useful post... doing this now!!! I knew there were these extended tags but not taken the time to clean them out.

    DX50 Bug List, Wish List Fix

    Thanks Musicheaven... I was pretty sure that was the case. The time saving in the scan is worth removing the embedded artwork on a large number of files.

    DX50 Bug List, Wish List Fix

    I've not tried png files and probably not inclined to in the interest of maximum compatibility. If the images you've embedded are png files you can use Mp3tag.exe to extract them and save them to the folder as a JPEG named folder.jpg in a very simple process either in your source or directly on...

    DX50 Bug List, Wish List Fix

    Having already tested this thoroughly with 1.2.3beta and 1.2.5, I can assure everyone that the most efficient for scan purposes is to have NO embedded artwork but each album folder should have the artwork in a file named folder.jpg (in the same folder as the music files) Highly recommend 300x300...

    The iBasso DX50 Thread - Latest firmware: 1.9.5 - June 30, 2016

    Very good advice if you want to minimise both initial and later boot scan time. True... But when most sources don't require this level of discipline to work properly, then this should be unnecessary and not required to enjoy your purchase. And clearly iBasso agree. Otherwise they did not have...

    You forgot to add IMHO...;) Personally, I can't tell much difference between any of them... But I do get significantly different synergies across my headphones. IMHO.
