    from what i've read no...but i did anyways. Thats the first thing i did...they improved shuffle apparently and thats good enough for me to upgrade. My x5ii shuffle mode sucked.

    is gapless play switched on?
  3. trivium911
    Yeah it is, works flawless unless I skip a track manually. Honestly it's fine though...we are dealing with massive flac files here so i think that's pretty understandable. The UI is actually pretty smooth all things considered. Yeah you can plop a more powerful processor but there goes your battery life. I realized all my Sade music files are just one big flac file per album and the player separates them out with an m3u playlist dumped in each folder. Those are the longest to skip/load which is understandable, the flac files that are seperate are better it seems as are MP3s.

    Glad to hear you got yours! For burn-in just use the provided burn-in cable in the balanced output for the 100hrs. No need to do it thru the 3.5(std) output. I myself went with the blue color, but I just love blue :) I was tempted by the earth brown however...pics would be nice.

    I believe it was mentioned before that there was a typo from iBasso regarding the name of that firmware. I received mine from the factory in June with the 2.4.56 FW installed so I think the .59 is the typo and should have been labeled .56

    Though I haven't done it yet myself, several users here have commented positively about the latest FW(2.5.68). I will try it very soon.

    I've also read before that after choosing the gapless playback you need to re-scan the library and turn off/on the device. The only time I've encountered that gapless doesn't work is when I have a whole-album FLAC file.

    That's my issue than...I hate those whole album flac files...they are a pain to play in groove music with windows 10 also.

    Too lazy to take out the DSLR...cell phone pictures should be good until I get a review going in the future.

    I'm done with Fiio, I even bought the X1ii for the wife and it was complete garbage...borderline not usable. The scroll touch wheel was worse than a 15 year old iPod. Fiio can continue to release their M series with wifi and Bluetooth and a bunch of mainstream useless features at the expense of sound quality...the older x7/X5 were their last decent models. Ibasso really hit a home run with this one and I'm happy for them to take my money if they keep up products like these, lol.

    At any rate it's clear ibasso has leveraged years of R & D to bring the cost down on the DX120, meanwhile fiio is catering to the masses...selling their souls in the process lol

    Btw just discovered another cool feature if anyone is not aware...when switching from headphone out to line out the volume remembers it's last setting in each mode...no more blasted headphones when unplugging from line out the next day...cool!

    To my ears their latest FW sounds even better then free filedizer version, that is an excellent upgrading, i used to listen through my home amplifier LO output to get the better sound then the SE port, but with this latest FW the LO doesnt sound any upgade at all for me, well just back to simple SE output. i love them, great job paul & the engineers.. .

    Of course.

    cant comment on the sound change but the shuffle mode does work really well, scanning on 2x128gb cards is surprisingly quick and the best part is you can still select and play music though "directory" while the cards are scanning.

    lol why did you remove the link?

    the announcement of upcoming DX160 (a possible DX-150 successor) seemed more suited to a DX150/200/220 thread than DX120.

    :wink:But i dont really know ...so here it is again lol


    -no amp modules?

    The fact that there are no amp modules and the fact that when you add 40 to dx80...you get dx120...add 40 to dx120 and you get dx160. I believe it might very well be the dx120's successor. Cirrus logic chips though...Hmm my fiio X3ii has a Cirrus logic 4398 chip.
