    Error in firmware 2.5.68 - after rebooting the player, the "Play Mode" setting is always reset to "Order".

    With the new firmware the UI finally is as super fast and reactive for me as for everyone (?) else. :o2smile:
    Before most menus were laggy and a lot of touches just did not trigger any action. But to be honest I never tried a factory reset as I did after the update. So maybe a factory reset and full rescan would have helped before the new firmware.

    has anyone posted a comparison/review next to the Shanling m5S yet? The only thing preventing me from buying this right now is the whole Dual DAC thing which the shanling m5s has. Or is dual dac a marketing gimmick? I understand channel separation is better with dual dac's but its excellent on the dx120 already...far above the limit of human hearing i would think.

    The new firmware does make dx120 faster. However, it's very inconvenient when it keeps reset play mode to Order after rebooting

    That's good to hear!

    I also find the resettting of the play mode annoying

    plus i would welcome 2 additional features

    1. replaygain
    2. crossfeed

    I do think this is the best sounding firmware (obviously subjective) it sounds wonderful through the 3.5mm se

    I found another error in firmware 2.5.68 - if the title Image+CUE has a symbol ' (for example, Manfred Mann's Earth Band), then after microSD's scanning the album is not divided into tracks. Paul, please fix it in the next firmware.

    Alright i caved...Mine should be arriving on Thursday in earth brown. Hope DHL doesn't ding me for customs but i highly suspect they will unless Ibasso took care of that. Its going to be some time before i get a review going as i need to burn it in...i also bought a 4 Conductor 2.5mm plug to solder on to my hifiman 400i's to convert them to balanced...so i need to get that done. I really only have the Fiio X5ii to compare to, perhaps that will help some of you.

    I got mine from Ibasso directly and went thru customs with no charge/complications. Hopefully yours has the same luck.

    Lucky, in my experience DHL has always dinged me for brokerage and of course GST. They are sticky in Canada though. I also went direct through ibasso

    Yes, I think I hear a slightly more spacious and layered sound. This latest update firmware seems more stable so far, the shuffle mode now works well.

    So i got dinged for customs from DHL, realistically though im not sure what ibasso declared on the commercial invoice but it was actually less than what GST would have been had i bought the item local...so no complaints there. For what its worth if you purchase from penonaudio they actually sell it for 230 british pounds stirling which is actually cheaper when converted to CAD than USD to CAD. I bought from ibasso direct so i guess that wasn't an option...it could be for someone else though in canada.

    Got mine in the mail! First impressions the sound is amazing through my CHI-FI SE846's 5BA...i dont remember them sounding this smooth and yet detailed out of my X5ii. Excited to try them from the balanced output when i get the cables..also when the device gets a chance to break in. Are we supposed to burn in the balanced output and standard output separately for 100 hours each?

    The earth brown is simply beautiful and luxurious it doesn't even look brown more like a rich beige titanium color, the screen is also sharp and responsive which really exceeded my expectations. Its larger and heavier than i would have thought but somehow has a premium classy feel to it. It really makes my X5ii feel cheap in comparison and very dated. My only initial complaint is the delay between switching tracks, i can live with that though. Its a very simple device with nothing extra...and i love it!

    My DX120 shows firmware 2.4.56 but why don't I see that in the firmware downloads. I see 2.3.53 which came before and 2.4.59 which supposedly came after.

    Anyway....is it worth upgrading from my current 2.4.56 to the latest 2.5.68?
