    iBasso DX300 Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa-core 6GB RAM 128GB ROM NEW Firmware 09/29/21 1.04.305 !

    And yet there is no explanation as to how This is done. Is it done with partnerships with MQA and Tidal, etc or just sidestepping and by passing android which again is an extra processing functionity like buffering short on the details to how they are achieving bit perfect....but quick on the...

    Also there are conditional requirements so don’t upgrade your third party apps or Android haha Doesn’t work offline re-watch the video. The record labels want it that way unless the app is cracked, Dave Grohl and once it’s online again they un-crack it 🤦‍♂️ I tried to be diplomatic but ibasso...

    It depends some DAC/Headphone Amps dongles connected to an iPhone that just streams or plays your music files at the correct sampling rates (unlike Andriod) could be close, worse or better than the Dx300. I'm talking anywhere from the $150 and up range that uses XMOS. This is however subjective...

    Ironically, your questions are linked with UAPP in this video. Android by default doesn't allow for exact sampling rate but thanks for minor (useless) correction from Hz to Khz. FPGA is a field programming chip that allows for the pure music that bypasses and isn't affected by android default...

    I wish we at least knew what was programmed on the FPGA like what the digital filter “cut offs” are, etc. In my opinion this is what plays a big role in the dap sound the way it does! I do like that the dac circuitry is kept simple, not overly complicated and sticks very close to the AKm...

    It’s literally advertised everywhere as groundbreaking. And it’s ambiguous why and they don’t disclose it brand and say things like “Our own FPAG Chip” in the description on audio64 then people keep saying and speculating that’s not what they “mean” and “probably” mean this process. “4pcs...

    That’s what i am thinking also the circuit is optimizing the functionality. I think that’s why they added RAM. But I liked to know what actual chip they using from a third party. Intel has a Master chip and think now so does AMD but I think it’s a new release. (Not sure??) I’d also like to...

    Saying Echo and then listening to a replied “Echo” from a chamber is technically listening. However, if a tree falls in the forest does it make sound? 🤔

    It actually goes beyond that whether the chip is made in-house or just programmed in-house not why doesn’t ibasso tell it’s potential customers since it controls literally everything audio in the dx300. We don’t know if they are using a FPGA Chip for the first time, what it specs are like how...

    This is not speculation. Every official announcement and even on official websites to purchase the DX300 like Audio64. I’ve also posted many of them on this thread that verified those claims (feel free to use the search tool in this thread to find them with provided links)

    Ibasso is introducing a self developed 1st gen Master FPGA chip. Any pics available of it? Why was it thAT ibasso choice of making their own silicon chip and not using a third party one owned by Intel & AMD? Is the removable of DSD512 because of the Master FPGA programming or a hardware issue?

    Through hole or SMD doesn’t affect the sound but these speculation are always present before a product is released. (Mods may not be necessary and there changes are subjective to what improvements they make whether audible or not). There’s essentially no difference just a choice by the...

    I agree and never judge anyone because we all hear differently and focus our attention on different “details” and pleasure of listening to our favorite music in a whole new way. It’s why I am passionate about this hobby regardless. I feel blessed that there’s plenty choices and different...

    Word. I couldn’t agree more 💯. To be fair to ibasso, the “hiss” problem maybe be hard to address since people want more output power that increases floor noise and if you have sensitive iems some expect these iems not to “pick up” that noise. However, with all that Ibasso did on the DX300 to...

    Except that the R8 only uses 2x Ak4497 with less power and better specs than the CL even with 4x. Btw, hiby r6 2020 downgrades the Sabre chip to save on battery life for a chip that has 2 channel rather than 4. Ak4499eq like the Death Star aren’t fully operational with 4 channels on most daps...

It will come down to programmable logic and how many logic units in the FPGA and how fast they are. Notice how the “turbo”...

    Sometimes I get overcharged That's when you See sparks They ask me where the hell I'm going? At a thousand feet per second Haha. The Dude’s got the Master FPGA :) No, because connecting a dap output to analog amp is all analog no digital processing involved for programming an FPGA. 🤦🏻‍♂️
