I'm also waiting on Lurker's next update but saw the updated Fidelizer page this morning. I installed Fidelizer 1.13 a few hours ago and immediately found some pros and cons.New Fidelizer port is available - iBasso DX150 V1.13.202-DX220Port
Based on iBasso DX220 firmware version V1.13.202
With fast MangoPlayer version 2.1.9 (brown)
Waiting Lurker for his magic on top of this (MangoOS on A8.1)
- AMP9 now has option for Low or High gain under Audio settings. Definitely more power and, surprisingly, less hiss. Just enough juice to be usable with my T50rp mk3; not super-loud but adequate volume.
- Still has DX220 version of Mango Player with PEQ.
- My DX150 now thinks it a DX220. Not really a problem except the DX150's unique (among the DX line afaik) Standard/Full Sound option is gone. I prefer the Full option but appears my system settings were retained even after flashing so, assuming that was saved, should be ok but no way to confirm. Also, Audio settings now show 7 filters (should be 5 for DX150). Only way to change the actual 5 filters is in the stock Mango app.
- Mango Player (DX220 version) PEQ now lowers the volume when enabled just like the regular EQ. This didn't happen on Fidelizer 1.12 and was one advantage when dealing with AMP9's low output. Now with the extra power, there's little reason not to use the stock DX150 Mango Player.
Soundwise, hard to say if or how much anything has improved after iBasso's latest tweaks plus I hadn't used my DX150 for a short while. I already preferred Fidelizer's sound over other ROMS but am interested to see if Lurker can get a stable Mango OS onto the DX150 in his next update. Fidelizer 1.13 does show the option for Mango OS when rebooting the player but it just restarts into Android.
