    I take it back, I’m still getting a crackle when I hit pause, even with the new firmware.

    Thanks! hope its worth the upgrade will be replacing the R3 since I need a player only..dont need wifi or bluetooth

    Is the UI still laging or sluggish?
  7. Carlsan
    I've found that when you start the player it takes a few minutes to really get settled in. It will start but not necessarily jump on to the next tune, it's as if it's doing a quick scan in the background that it hasn't finished.
    It's fine after that.
    The UI has room for improvement.

    Please try either a reinstall of the firmware or a factory reset or both. I test our DX120 often and startup time is about 17 seconds or a little less and I can go right into a song. I can do this from Album or directory.
    iBasso Stay updated on iBasso at their sponsor page on Head-Fi.

    Thanks Paul, will do.
  10. NiVrA
    please do update if it fixed the issue..thanks!

    The difference is large. Every aspect of audio reproduction is superior on the DX120. The internal R3 DAC & amp stages sound no different to an iPhone 6S to me. The DX120 is up there with the Hp-p1.

    I am not good at comparing so I can't say how large the difference is but I borrowed my husband's R3 last night to listen with my Nighthawk balanced. While it drove them well, the magic that I feel with the DX120 was not there. I have never used a phone as a source so I cannot comment on that.

    I will add that the DX120 is more ergonomic in my hand and I like the UI better.

    Does the view of the album section run smoothly? There are videos where that section is very slow because of the loading of the covers.

    any modified FW that is recommended, similar to the Lurker FWs for the DX80, which I highly enjoyed?
    Or should I just stick with the official FW for now (noticed latest FW is a few months old at this point)?
    Also noticed the purist ROM from Fidelizer, which was not asomething I was aware of. Whats does that do for the sounds quality?

    Purist ROM will improve system and file I/O performance including better battery life, remove non-audio components in Particle engine, remove Android audio effects in audio chain for Purist performance (doesn't break Equalizer).
