You have to download the zip, unzip it and there is a new zip that is the actual firmware. That is the zip you use on a card to do the update.
Ohh let me do that on my laptop and transfer over. Thanks!

Dear guys,
Which one is the best between lurker mod or fidelizer purist paid? Thanks.
Fidelizer paid i wouldn't recommend.... Why?
First of all it's crazy money.... A I have been years in Android and flashing. All the roms out there are for free and those guys has also lot of free time in it.
And he is asking money for it.... If there is a word Audiophile you can charge he thinks.

Second the way lurker set this up.... So connecting the app (hiby lurker or UAPP) It directly connects to the DAC chip. Bypassing all the Android processes. How clean and direct do you want it to have?

So Lurker has all the goodies I need. Root, Magisk and USB Audio.

Why is that there are no specs to be found on the amp side just the Vrms but not Watts?

Edit:
Found some info on this matter.

I was investigating because my Audeze Sine hisses on female vocals.

As i understood the DX160 has a low impedence amp.
As the Sine doesn't like low resistance Amps i now know why the peak occur.
I thought I doesnt had enough power.
Normal listening volume has to been set at 65% volume balanced. With high gain.

Btw
Still no product page for the DX160.

Hey guys, around page 80 in this thread there is a lengthy discussion about issues with scratching noises seemingly deriving from some WiFi interference or something. I'd use this DAP with the very sensitive Vision Ears VE6 and I hate any kind of noise that's not the music so I'm worried. Do people still have these issues with recently bought devices? Were ibasso engineers ever able to reproduce it? I didn't read the whole thread tbh.

Yes and yes.
But, there's a workaround.
You can lower wifi transmit power.

I don't have any issues with noise or interference.

What a did see is a review of the DX160 and in the box there was a 4.4 to 2.5 mm adapter... Didn't found it in my package.:disappointed:

Thanks mate. Which, I guess, leaves me sitting next to my wifi router in order to stream music without interferences?

There’s no adapter included. The ibasso one is €20

Yah, I like some good recommendation of IEMs to match my DX160 too. I exchanged my defective for another new one today. The spring now works. But I need a tooth pick to bounce it back out. I might have jammed the previous one's spring so it got stuck and my card never could bounce back out. I wish there is an easier way unless it is designed for women with long finger nails to push the card out?!

The Fiio FH7 is great with it!
