    A loose screw could short out a couple of components, so best to secure it in place. It was one of the screws holding the PCB onto the aluminum front panel. Very easy fix- email Paul for the video!

    Now I am scared. I don't want to short anything out but am not confident to open it.

    It's really easy, just go slow. Like, really easy, opening a deck of cards easy (almost)

    Surely some of the credit goes to whatever you have plugged into it:)

    BTW mine came with super slow roll off filter enabled and natural sound mode. I have left it like that and am happy. I was already familiar with super slow roll off as that has been my preferred setting with my Cayin N3 for over a year. The sound mode settings for the DX120 I am not sure about. I have found no explaination for what each actually does.

    I have had mine a couple of weeks.. hope I have not hurt anything by leaving it like that so long. Meanwhile, as I have no idea where my husband has the small screwdriver set I might as well wait until he gets home from work. He can do it:) I will have to get the video first so I suppose I will have to open my email program. Seem to rarely use email these days. I wonder why there is not just a link posted for it.

    Just playing it though my 17 year old pair of Etymotic ER-4s

    I certainly have, quite a good investment, even including the cost of a pack of overpriced filters every two years. They are an acquired taste, but once you get used to the sound, you can't go back. For listening to music at low volume, there's nothing else that I've found that's better. I've never found them uncomfortable, and care is easy- just gotta clean the flanges every once in a while with hydrogen peroxide, and all is good!!! I think there were a lot of the designs from a few years back were pretty good, I've still got a Rio Karma that I use regularly (although loading and unloading music onto it is quite an ordeal). Heck, I still use my Cowon J3 all the time for working out, and the battery still lasts several days on a single charge! However, my poor Fiio X3ii is in pieces on my desk, the victim of a display failure :frowning2:

    It looks like they influence perception of the music space, guess it's some subtle acoustic voodoo into tricking our brains into thinking there's distance between us and the sound. I'm using etymotics, so my soundstage is approximately the width of my face and the lead singer is behind my nose!

    Does anyone know the answer to this question?

    Please go to Play Mode, check the box for Folder Play and use Loop or one of the modes indicated. Then rescan the card or cards. From there Folder Play will play.

    That was what I already tried.but the next folder still did not play after the first folder ended. I even rebooted the device.

    I have N5ii. Which has brighter signature?
    Can you say that dx120 has better sq to n5ii?
    Or shall i upgrade to dx200 to notice a difference?

    I did a comparison a while ago.
