    iBasso DX300 Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa-core 6GB RAM 128GB ROM NEW Firmware 2/6/2021

    Thanks for the tips. Tried them both and still no joy I've had the DX plugged into laptop for a while and no life from it. Also tried the recovery menu tip but again nothing. Just seems to have died 😔

    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    Bob's earphones remind me of the old Sennheiser IE8 earphones which seemed to take hundreds of hours before the bass settled. I'm currently switching between the Astra and Elysium, lost track of hours on each but a long way off being fully burned in.

    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    @RumbleWeed I have both the Elysium and Astra however the Astra is many hours behind in the burn-in process. What I would say at this stage is that the mids and bass on the Elysium are a smoother, more velvety if you like whereas the level of detail on the Astra in its early hours are...

    Luxury & Precision (LP) Portable USB DAC/AMP W1 and W2 (0818 New FW Available, Update Info on Post #1)

    Thats what I was finding in the last 15 minutes or so, the S1 starts to sound messy and distorted at a certain level.

    It's funny you say that as I was having the same thought in the last 5-10 minutes.

    Luxury & Precision (LP) Portable USB DAC/AMP W1 and W2 (0818 New FW Available, Update Info on Post #1)

    Checked that. It's a bit strange really. The W2 sounds better but my unit definitely doesn’t have more driving power than the Lotoo S1. Just been using my IMR Elysium with the 4.4mm cable on both units. The W2 is sitting at 50 to 55/100, the S1 is at 45/100 and is still giving more more...

    Luxury & Precision (LP) Portable USB DAC/AMP W1 and W2 (0818 New FW Available, Update Info on Post #1)

    For me and this is only based on some brief listening this afternoon. The DX300 has more body and depth to the sound, the detail is similar especially when using my Ety er4 however there is just a wider, deeper and more fuller presentation to the DX300. I might still move the DX on though...

    Luxury & Precision (LP) Portable USB DAC/AMP W1 and W2 (0818 New FW Available, Update Info on Post #1)

    Yep volume thing is a bit strange however when using my 660s this afternoon both S1 and W2 volume levels are similar at 70/100. At lower levels the W2 needs higher levels up until around 55 to 60 when they start to even out. I'm assuming that the extra power might be more noticeable as it...

    Luxury & Precision (LP) Portable USB DAC/AMP W1 and W2 (0818 New FW Available, Update Info on Post #1)

    I think I kind of know however still have to a face off! Going to compare to DX300. Not using DAP's as much as I used too. @musicday Just a wee query, did you find you had to drive the W2 to higher volumes than the S1? example being that on balanced I need to use the W2 at around 40/45...

    Luxury & Precision (LP) Portable USB DAC/AMP W1 and W2 (0818 New FW Available, Update Info on Post #1)

    I've ordered the W2 from Musictek. Hopefully wont take too long to get to the UK. Be interesting to see how it stacks up against my newly acquired Lotoo S1.

    Any UK users give an idea on shipping and taxes etc from musicteck? I'm assuming an extra £45 or so on top the $350

    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    I'm pretty sure the snapdragon chipset on the DX300 supports Dolby Atmos, maybe it's a case of waiting for Ibasso to implement. Not in a hurry as I've got a couple of hundred hours of burn in to go! Switched back to the lower grey/blue upper combo this evening, finding vocals on some tracks a...

    I probably could but don't think I have an OTG cable.

    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    On the Apple Music app on the DX300 there is no option for Dolby Atmos in the settings, however there is on my S21 app settings. I don't know if this is because I'm using APK beta's of the Apple music app, the beta version on the play store is no longer open to new downloads and the new Dolby...

    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    I've been using Apple Music on my DX300 however it doesn't support Dolby Atmos, no option to enable it. However it is supported on my Samsung S21 but I have no dongle/dac to connect Elysium to phone!

    Yep, same here. Makes them a bit too expensive, around 22% extra on price I believe.

    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    @holsen I don't think they protrude any more than my Halcyon however they do go a bit deeper into my canal. Fit seems more secure to me than previous IMR models. The bone conduction is really hard to explain, the best way I think I can describe is this - it feels like you are in the middle of...

    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    Been listening to the Elysium for over an hour and think Bob may have surpassed other models with this. Now I know that it's way too early too even begin to think about overall thoughts however early signs are very positive. Build quality is excellent and the inclusion of 3 cables is excellent...
