    Thanks. I'm just a lurker here in the head fi forums mainly to check out reviews and monitor the dx120 thread for updates. That's why I don't post much. :)

    Awesome that was a quick firmware release... Ibasso is great!
     
  5. trivium911
    Does anyone pair their dx120 with a desktop or portable amp? If so which one?

    Lurker can you install that firmware the same as the iBasso firmware is installed?
     
  9. Lurker0
    Yes, but I recommend a trouble-free way.

    I went there one time when I was stationed at Clark (probably before you were born).

    Does the firmware improve battery life at all? Just not sure on the CPU at max speed function. It seems the main reason for the upgrade is improve the font?
     
  14. Lurker0
    From my point of view, the main reason is to improve the sound. It should be obvious that constant CPU speed means more even power consumption (=less modulation and therefore better LF reproduction) and interference distribution (=less noise and cleaner HF), and high performance means less jitter... it should, but it looks like it is not! Same with other changes...

    In fact, DX120 (and other current iBasso DAPs) are designed so good that such improvements are not as immediate as with DX90 or DX50. OTOH most of people are too affected by psycho-acoustics (and, as a result, by myths and false claims), but don't hear the difference where is should be obvious. I don't play on people's believes and ignorance, and that's why I list only technical details, leaving the rest to end user's knowledge and hearing.

    :wink:
    It is easy to check, no? From my tests, it does not decrease the battery life.

    For what it's worth I might give with shot and install it, I doubt I'll hear a difference unless there was some way to A-B it but I only have one dx120 :frowning2:
