    Are you hearing actual difference in sound converting to DSD?

    is the power the same as DC01?
  3. Whitigir
    You do realize I started it over here ? And the last thing you realize is that AK SP2000 allows DSD512 ?

    So yes, I do hear the differences. But as I said, I already listed out the technical reasons, and what to use. You gotta judge it for yourself

    Maybe I will try it in the future. I have never felt upsampli
    Can you guide on where to find the science to back up the sound quality improvement? I would like to read it.
  5. Whitigir
    I recommend you to listen to it and judge with your ears first. Then find the scientific explanations afterward. If there is no differences, forget it ...LoL

    It is up to your ears. The Pure Mango has nothing working in the background like Android does, and it may enhance the sound because of this. It is all personal preference and we provide the option.
    iBasso Stay updated on iBasso at their sponsor page on Head-Fi.

    Thanks Paul, I suspect my ears are not hearing a difference :), but loving the DX220 in both modes anyway. Just wish my AMP9 would hurry up and get here :).

    Spend a day with this beauty but got a few questions:

    1.) Can the purist rom and the lurker mod but used together? If so which do I see to install first? the rom correct?

    2.) How much improvement iS gained from UI and quickness?

    3.)Beat Anyone wanna share soe settings they got witb mango os/app using ithe it04s?

    Please correct if I am wrong that you can only update and install either one but I think I read somewhere said that if you are using the upgrade of Fidelizer’s rom there will be sonically changed (?) although I have tried to upgrade to both I got failed every time.

    Hi, just wondering how you are getting on with the dx220 as a Roon endpoint/controller?

    I have it running on my dx200 but the screen resolution means the Roon display is just too small to read and navigate. How is it on the dx220?

    Also, for some reason, the sq was never as good streaming from Roon as it was playing directly from the dx200. To do with the Android output perhaps? Even 16/44.1 didn’t sound as good. Have you tried this comparison?

    P.S. I don’t really want to use it just as a dac connected to computer, which sounds like it works better. Hopefully Roon will soon add support for Android USB dacs....

    I really dislike the leather case that came with the DX220. It keeps my sausage fingers from reaching the upper and right parts of the touchscreen. Is there an alternative leather/pleather/other type of case that doesn't have this issue?
  12. Paulo Abreu
    There's a TPU case but I guess it won't help with that issue.
    One option is not to use a case at all
    Other option is to use Mango OS (former "Mongo" from Flash Gordon as someone pointed) - no swipes from edges, just plain old touches...
  13. Whitigir
    Neither Kann Cube, sp2000, nor the Gold Touch are using Solid wires

    Cube and Gold Touch are using ribbon cables. SP2000 uses snap-in connectors, but unlike the Fiio and Ibasso mechanism, this connectors are thin and small....in the while gaining nothing of such as removable amp modules. Why removable amp modules ? AK isn’t going to develope amp modules at the speed of Ibasso and Fiio, and on top of that, each module is $899 or whatever....not $199...who is going to keep cycling them ? LOL!

    If only FATBEAR made a case for iBasso DAPs...I love their form-fitting rubber case for the Sony ZW-NX300. Anything form-fitting would work better than the few leather cases available for the DX220. My kingdom for a better case!

    Can you just trim the edge of the case? As long as you don’t do the entire edge it probably won’t cause any problems staying on.
