    My apologies, let me clarify OTG digital audio output to an external amp/dac and not OTG flash drives.

    Ah yes the unlock screen. I tend to turn that off and screen dimming also during a/b testing lol

    Yes absolutely, it is not something you can blind A/B on.
  3. mbwilson111
    It is not something that gets turned on and off in the options. You do it by hold in the play button on the side and it just comes up.

    There is nothing in the manual or any reviews that this is a feature. I had been wishing there was an option and then XBTed accidently found it.

    Does the DX120 have the OTG software to allow External Flash drives to act as external storage devices using the USB C port?
  5. mbwilson111
    That was what I was showing in my photo on page back... so yes.

    I did discover one thing. If I put the drive in the USB slot before powering up the player, it went into a boot loop. So I took it out and then put it back in after the player had booted... went to Directory view and there is was.

    I have also tried it with a tiny little card reader. That works too.

    I did see it connected, but then again one can connect anything as long as it has a USB C connection. Just by connecting does not mean it will function the same as SDXC drives in Ports 1 and 2. Judging by your comments it does appear that it works adequately. I have since been into the Manual, and it does say you can connect an OTG device into that port to act as additional storage. Thank you for highlighting that facility as my 2 x 400 GB cards are full.

    Yes, maybe I should have showed photos of the albums inside the OTG directory and then one of a song playing :) I probably would have if my photos were turning out better. I have to figure out how to get clear photos of the screen.

    As I said, I have not actually had the need to use that feature yet on this dap but I should mention when I do use OTG with my Hidizs AP100 or my Cayin N3, the battery life is reduced because it has to power the extra device.

    Quoted from your review:
    "My own preference after going back and forth was the super slow roll-off or the last option on the list. It is perhaps the smoothest of the 5 options available and provides the best tonal body for instrumental timbre. Again, this is a very subtle sound shaping option and it does take a while to figure out where your preference lies."

    We have similar preference:

    But I couldn't hear any difference from the sound mode, and it also doesn't show any differences in my measurement.
  9. marcusd
    Then I suggest you go for EQ? That to me seems the logical option if the sound modes are not rocking your world.
  10. earfonia
    No that's not the point. I simply want to know what sound mode does to the audio file. Like digital filters or EQ we know what kind of processing they do to the audio file. But there is no explanation what sound mode does to the audio file.

    the dx120 can be combined with the mojo?
    if you play well with mojo?

    Received my first ibasso product today (DX120) after returning the Fiio M9. Happy to report the DX120 sounds better in all areas, and operates in a responsive manner. However, one niggle, my IEMS with in-mic cable do not work (they have 3 pole rings on the 3.5mm jack), the 2 pole/ring with no mic work fine. Is that by design or is my unit defective?

    I have had that problem and I had to use the spacer that my husband received with his DX200. It has to do with the way the iems are wired. See if pulling the plug out a small amount causes the sound to kick in. The spacer is a small o ring... or maybe it is called a keyboard spacer. It keeps the plug from going too far into the jack.

    Thanks for reminding me. I had meant to post about that.

    I have read (I don't use an inline mic as the wire isn't that good and only degrades the sound) that there are two types of inline mics. One works with the DX120 and the other does not and you have to use an adapter in order for this other type to work.

    The more I play with this thing the more I like it. Balanced out to Meze 99 Classics is really pretty sweet.
