I suspect its not a learning curve issue here, I have seven dap's and I come from a similar background, The AK Daps look funky and have nice SQ. I have two witch I use regularly and the software is strait down the line. four ways to alter the volume *** . Its different with the DX220.... It has 'Personality' . I suffered the same issues at first, but after getting all the AMP's and even customising my AMP8 and getting a custom made case. So I learned to live with the 'Personality'. While Ibasso do try to fix bugs and add features, it takes them forever. I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for these things to get fixed. I have to say I stick with my SR25 or SE200 for daily use as they just work. You have to love the sound of the DX220 and accept its 'Charms' if you want to end up loving it like most of us do...
They never put this into the reviews right, Its a bit like getting married ....
I am not an Android fan to say the least. I had a Samsung Galaxy S4 years ago and hated it. I will simply have to adapt to the DX220's way of working and it'll take time.
Just got ibasso dx220
Strange, I use the DX220 daily and don't have any issues. I have AK as well and Sony. I don't experience any real bugs and talk about a long time to do any fixes, try Sony who is very slow to never, as in daps and my Sony cameras. And AK isn't that fast either. I do like using the AMP8 a lot. It is all good. For the music! :^)
All manufacturers are slow to fix issues - fixing issues costs $$$ and it really needs to be a decent issue for them to authorise a fix.
My dx220 works fine too. However, is charging really this slow? Feels like it takes five minutes to charge 1%.
Mine charged pretty good with a standard 5v 2a charger. Took about 2 hours to go from 50% to full charge.
Boy does this bad boy run hot though. I hope it's not going to be a problem in the hot Australian climate.
The screen on the DX220 is brilliant
Apparently the fast charge chargers sort of negotiate a charging protocol.
yes that is my understanding. The device announces its voltage operating details, and the fast charger sets the voltage and the amps to match Just remember that p=i*v (power = current x volts). power is measured in watts (well, electrical power that is). So, if the fast charger is 25w and the device is 9v, it'll set the current to 25/9. Since electrical devices will only draw the current that they need, an amp mismatch isn't an issue (unless it's under powered, then that is an issue). Voltage matching is far, far, far more important. I learnt this when doing 3 years support as the sole tech support for the entirety of Australia and NZ for DYMO. The amount of people that I experienced who would just pick up any old charger and use it was astounding lol. Call me evil, but it was a lot of fun talking to an end customer who'd picked up a 2v charger for a 9v device, plugged it in, heard a loud bang and then complained that their DYMO unit was broken and wanted a refund lol.
