    It certainly is not better than DX200 (it's excellent modular AMP design is hard to beat right now) according to the reviews so far but 3GB RAM is a welcome good for better performance especially for Android DAPs, $100 Xiaomi phone comes with 3GB RAM these days.

    Apparently only 27 units are made globally.

    Is there any information with regards to what is the actual rating of the clocks in femto-seconds?

    I haven't found this information anywhere. For all we know this could be 1000 femto-seconds or more, which wouldn't be a particularly stand-out feature. :)

    Did anyone compare the DX200 to the new FiiO Q5? I am thinking of getting also a Bluetooth / aptX-HD DAC - something I think the future iBasso products should definitely not miss.

    Nope, still don't get it to work. After the playing a folder its stopped.
    Am I missing something here?
    Long tap or tap and hold, only bring the additional menu...

    I have also upgraded my firmware to and now I and losing the sensitivity of the screen.
    Swiping left and right had been more difficult, that's including selecting a folder.
    Do I have to reset after firmware upgrade?
    I had installed some music on the internal drive, could this be causing the slow responsive screen?
    Will reset clear my internal drive memory?

    Ir is recommended to always do a factory reset after completing a firmware update.

    Why does album scrolling still lag so much? I saw videos of the HiBy R6 online and album scrolling is so smooth and effortless.
    When will there be a firmware update to address this?
  8. nazrin313
    Read the hiby r6 is the smoothest and fastest dap around..maybe thats why..but for me SQ is no 1 and u probably wont get better than the dx200
  9. CalvinW
    Yeah, maybe the Snapdragon 425 and 3GB ram is really that much faster than the internals of the DX200.
    I really like the SQ of the DX200 and all but its usability is really hampering my daily use.
    I upgraded from an AK100ii that came out in 2014 and yet the UI feels so much more fluid.
    I really hope the next firmware will address this. The android os is working pretty well but I feel like the Mango OS still needs some serious optimization.

    What's the procedure for turning-in the AMP4? Use a 4.4mm-2.5mm balanced adapter and plug-in the burn-in cable provided by ibasso? Or plug in an iem with 4.4mm termination and let it play through? Is burn-in time the same 200 hrs as it was for the AMP1 card? What's the recommended hours for AMP4 burn-in?
  11. jamato8 Contributor
    You can use the balanced adapter to 2.5 TRRS and use the burn in cable. I found that for me the AMP4 sounded good right away and refined at around 150 or 200 hours.

    I have the AK100II and IMO it is not as fast with scrolling as the DX200. I noticed this the other day when scrolling and using it. It is not all that responsive compared to other daps and I am on the latest FW.
  13. CalvinW
    I have the latest firmware on my DX200 and AK100ii as well. I tested them with the same micro SD card and made sure to initate a rescan.
    When scrolling through albums, the album art would load instantly on the AK100ii, whereas there would be a varying level of delay on the DX200 depending on the os.
    There is considerable lag before album art would load on Mango OS, and only a slight delay on android which I find totally acceptable.
    However, I prefer using Mango OS for its simplicity and this issue is really bugging me.
  14. jamato8 Contributor
    Don't know what to tell you. I am on Mango now and can scan up and down. Nope not super smooth but using the side bar on the left it is fast and I can use my finger on the screen to pull the albums up and down. For me, I prefer it to the AK100II.

    Mango OS is really buggy and not sounding that much better than android OS. I guess its not fair a comparison as the AK100ii is under android OS while DX200 is under Mango OS which is known for being not smooth due to firmware issue and not hardware's. I have a very pleasing experience scrolling through album via Neutron player though. Hope you will prefer to switch it to android OS soon to rectify the problem. Cheers
