    Ugh, that's a bit much

    Were you at absolute maximum volume?

    It should drain slower, I get about 2 hours from 100% to about 65 % - 70 % , with AMP 7

    That would be pretty funny, but it just doesn't drive Sundara, which are my main portables :)

    I need more volume. It isn't painfully quiet, just a bit quieter than I typically listen to, say, if I listen at 110 dB, AMP 9 with Sundara stops at about 100 - 103 dB

    (lets not turn this into a volume convo, I know what I'm doing :) )

    Just got my Amp 9 for the Dx200. with the SR1, is an unreal combo for me. If it's true it improves with time, I'll be spending a lot of time with this combo.

    I definitely should have sent you my unit.... Diana was powered too loud for me at 20, and they are very similar power requirements to the Sundara. I’ll keep you in mind if I get another software glitch :beyersmile:

    The volume was set between 11-20. So I was shocked.. now I had reinstalled the latest firmware and reset it. Hope it fix it.

    That is interesting

    with AMP9?

    With AMP7, Sundara is driven pretty well, but with AMP9, just the raw volume isn't enough for me. The actual driving was good, controlled, detailed, everything, it just lacked volume for me

    Woah, i also hope you manage to fix it

    Not for me... actually I am having the problem again after restarting, IBasso is trying to figure out if it firmware or hardware related.

    I am having trouble charging and starting my DX200 again. Holding the power button down (constantly), I get the DX200 sign flashing twice and then it goes to the circle with the waves at a low level. I've tried switching cables and the wave level does not go up, although yesterday, it did show fully charged when it was left to charge overnight but then the above still happened and then suddenly the power/wave level was back to low again.

    I'll write to iBasso again. They are excellent with their service. Last time it was the AMP8 that was the problem for something similar to this but this time I tried it with both AMP8 and AMP4.

    Sounds like a bad battery to me. The battery is pretty easy to change yourself.

    Thanks. I hope that's all but it was working fine just before that with good battery life per charge.

    I've had many an andriod phone do this to me. You charge it and the next morning you are using it and it dies. I think batteries are $15 and about 20 - 30 minutes of your time to replace. I remember Paul posted a link on Amazon to a battery for the DX200. Let me see if I can find it..... BRB

    Is Amp9 supposed to require more volume than Amp1 MkII to drive the same IEM? I'm using Lurker0's firmware add on but I'm listening in Mango OS Ver 1.12.149. I'm using the Astell & Kern x JH Audio Angie with a balanced cable to a Fiio 3.5 mm adapter. The Volume on the Amp1 MkII (Slow Roll Off Linear) was set to 45 using the 2.5mm Jack and 53 using the balanced cable with the Fiio 3.5mm adapter. The volume on Amp9 (Fast Roll Off Minimum) was set to 76 for reference.
