    Well yes just like when you charge your phone it says fast charging. But hey I'll try it again it probably is working. I'm sure this stuff will get ironed out with firmware upgrades.

    report about it

    Yeah, Better try.. make sure u used proper cable for it? just to make sure... I used Cayin cable Charging, Thicker and seems right.

    Fast charging does not indicate that it is fast charging. You can tell by how long it charges up :). I use note 8 charger and cables. it works wonderful in Android

    Wouldn't swapping dacs require some firmware modifications?

    After trying balanced, well the balanced on dx220 is even better than zx300 imo. More power, more detail/resolution and more dynamic. Not night and day, but noticeable.

    I don't understand the point of talking about false dilemmas and magic parts. Your claim about incompatibility with mass production is significant. However, let's revisit Paul - iBasso's response again.

    There is no reference to feasibility. Furthermore, there's no reference to best sound quality or preserving a house signature sound. There's only reference to keeping the amps widely accommodating after experimenting with some of the mod components. Paul even states that with the predominate IEMs or headphones being used mods can sound more to your liking. Read the lines and slightly in between them. The first person claimed that the changed caps improved depth significantly. More accurately, he called it a "big improvement" and that "now it has actual real depth". Does that sound like something people would dislike? If someone dislikes it, let's displease them rather than the majority of others who'd appreciate actual real depth. I've seen Whitigir mention his modified amp8s a few times. His post on the last page was the first one I've seen to include this gem:

    Typically when I see him referring to his mods I don't catch the negative part or possibility. In fact, perhaps I don't recall correctly, but when I was reading a description of one of his mods under pros sound quality improvement was listed. Didn't catch the "this is actually totally subjective and you might find the sound quality to be worse" part under cons. Similarly, the DX200ti with higher quality components escaped the subjectivity clause. You also see specific descriptions of how and why sound is improved.

    It's obvious people don't care enough. Ok, @Paul - iBasso , can you make a $300 balanced amp with higher quality components that some of us with some iems or headphones might find to sound better? A premium amp for the predominate ones, not for general use. That's kind of the point of having amps be modular. You can make a lot of them without having to worry about pleasing everyone. I'll be pleased just not having to wade through this nonsense.



    Currently listening to my DX228 with the IER-Z1R and finding enjoyment.

    Well, Its not in the same league, IMO. power, streaming capabilities, GUI etc.

    ZX300 is a good mid segment DAP for first timer who looking SQ... warm Sound Sig. Just lack of resolution if compare to DX221. IMO.

    so any quick wall charger should work like an anker or even the nintendo switch charger.

    It's called buyer's remorse. :)

    As long as it's compatible with either QC 3.0, PD 2.0, MTK PE plus fast charging protocol.

    I was not writing anything that needed to be read between the lines about. We design our products to sound the best they can. What may be an improvement for one person may not be for another when modifying. This is about music and the enjoyment. Please do not try to read something into what I have not written.
    iBasso Stay updated on iBasso at their sponsor page on Head-Fi.

    I'll reformat the key parts.

    What you're saying is that you design your products to sound the best they can across a wide range of iems and headphones. What I'm asking is that you design an amp, an amp module that is optional and changeable, with higher quality parts, as mods indicate are available and applicable, for those of us who believe that an improvement is likely to correlate with higher quality parts. It is indeed about music and enjoyment, and your amps are modular. Is this a reasonable request?

    Maybe it is indeed time to consider employing Whitigir in an official capacity. He has been getting this, until recently at least.

    The best a manufacturer can do is to design a product to sound best with a lot of different headphones and iem. How would they know what headphone or iem we will use? Impossible. After this statement from Paul my dx220 sounds a little better :) Paul has elaborated enough.
