    I am using the Fiio X5 (not ii!) because the iBasso broke down (they are sending me a new one) I use both with an Meier Symphony amp via coax out. First things I noticed when returning to my old X5 is the prolonged battery life, second I noticed the much faster scan of the 2 cards in the X5! Perhaps it's all down to the fact that my DX120 was faulty, I hope so, I will find out as soon as the new one arrives.

    Nothing on the sound that you notice? Of course the x5ii sounds different than the original so it's not a direct comparison. I never bother with scanning as I just use folder mode. Can't stand using genre or artist mode as I have full albums, imagine all the one off artists from a big shiny tunes album rather than just one album. Plus you have to organize it on your computer already, fixing id3 tags is another step.

    Hi all,

    I like use my ibasso dx120 as storage device, and connect it to other dap with USB type c input (Shanling M0) for send audio with LDAC to my Bluetooth headphones and speaker.

    Where can I buy one type-c type-c USB otg cable? I can't found one.

    This not say otg :

    There is no such a cable. With USB Type-C, devices should negotiate themselves.

    USB output is available or unavailable?
  7. Paul - iBasso
    That was a misstatement on my part. It has the OTG and support for the digital output.

    A blue DX 120 should be on its way to me by tomorrow. I hope that it is as good as this thread has me believing.

    Sorry folks,

    I find hard to understand the OTG thing.

    Could I use my Android phone as a source (via USB connection)?
    Would the DX120 be powerful enough to drive the Sennheiser HD660S through balanced output, using a 4.4->2.5 connector?

    I haven't been able to get USB out to work on any device despite it being in the firmware notes. I think the handshake process is broken.

    my DX120 used to take 2-3 hours to get fully charged but since the day i updated its firmware it is taking more than 8-9 now with the same charger. is anyone facing the same issue?
  12. crabdog
    Mine does weird things too. Takes forever to charge lately.
  13. Paul - iBasso
    Please be sure you are using a quick charger. We have had a few cases of this and it was the charger.

    Hi, I try to use my DX120 connected to other DAP as dac via USB. It plays well 24 bits files, but when I play 16 bits files DX120 it blocks. I only can play 24 bits files. Does anybody know why?

    If iuse my Galaxy S8 play 16 bits without problems

    Just received my DX120 2 days ago and love it. For my needs it surpasses my Cowon J3, Fiio X5iii, and Fiio M7. So far I have not noted any problems. Tonight I will monitor the charging time, using a new Qualcomm Quick Charger.
