    Does Mango OS decode MQA or not? I don't see it has any information on MQA in Mango OS but I can see the sample rate is higher at the notification bar in Android OS.
    If Mango OS does not support MQA, I will stick to Android OS.

    No Mango OS dunnot decode MQA... but u should try the sound from it... IMO Mango OS is better then MQA for 24 bit or 48kHz above flac song

    Mango OS is the top quality software player for the iBasso DX220. I made some comparisons and I am blown away by the sound quality. Every day!

    Ok, I have been busy, and I have thought about this but haven’t posted up yet. It seems like someone is already experiencing the issue with Amp9

    The socket may become lose and the sound may be intermittent or 1 channel. It is all due to the socket and it design. I have posted up here a way to fortify the socket at this post.

    This is not a design flaws, but rather that some people will have unique applications that may force the Jack to move in some unique way, and so it can easily be damaged. If you take good care of your Amp9, there should not be problem with it whatsoever. Ibasso opted for this due to the unique sizes and limitation of the amp module to fit the NU-Tubes

    My method is just to fortify it further, period.

    We have stressed and tested the jack of the AMP9 and all the AMPs and daps. We have almost no failures now due to issues with the jack.
    iBasso Stay updated on iBasso at their sponsor page on Head-Fi.

    Same design are used in many dac/amp, and most can display type or rate, Q5 is an example, topping's dx7s too.
    Since the document said that DSD512 native only works when it is used as USB-DAC, if nothing is displayed
    how do we know it is really natively supported, and not down sampled internally?
  8. Whitigir
    Shouldn’t be an issues for any
    The windows driver should display the rate that is being played back. The DSD512 is Extremely Power demanding, and so the DX220 will be very very hot. Take it out of the Leather case, and put on a good cooling surface

    The DX220 and Dx200 can both play DSD512 Natively by itself from the MicroSD, if you have it. You are not limited by only USB-DAC

    Ok, then this paragraph is misleading, page 12 of DX220 user guide:
    The DX220 supports up to 32bit/384kHz PCM, and
    native DSD up to 512x when be used as a USB-DAC.

    This is DSD512 playing back natively by MicroSD with dx220

    Ok, I recall there are conversion to DSD512 discussion earlier, this is one of your converted.
    That is cool.

    Been burning my neotech and amp9 during the night..
    my normal listening is via Tidal on Android.
    Just plugged it into my MAC and manage to get DAC mode to work in Mango and playing Tidal and this thing is even clearer

    I don't think it get's much better with this Stellia / Neotech 24 AWG pure silver cable and dx229 crystal clear vocals , no hiss and pure natural vocals and soundstage is just huge. Also love the amp9 think I will swap out to amp9 at some point but want to get the most out of this for now :)

    The Bass is so articulate it hot with a hard slam but then comes to a sudden stop making the sound very dynamic and energetic

    @marcusd , I have question about the dx220 review on Headfonics.

    > OTG Digital Audio worked just fine using a USB-C to micro-USB connection to our trusty RHA DACAMP L1 amp as well as FiiO’s Q5

    This is not mentioned in user guide, only in Headfonics' review.
    Does the DX220 automatic recognizes external DAC when connected?
    Can I do DX220 -> USB -> iFi Miaco iDSD, Topping DX7s,...?
  14. marcusd
    That's a difficult question because until you try it you won't know for sure. I can only speak of the ones I have tried to show that digital audio out does work.

    I think I might have a IDSD somewhere though to test it tomorrow :)

    Great, thanks.
    I sold my Q5 to fund this DX220, I might get a type-c to type-D to try my DX7s.
