Would you buy a product knowing that its support will be dropped in a year? I, for one, appreciate iBasso efforts in supporting just discontinued products.
Point taken but...
I spend too much time on this page and I don't have a DX90 or DX50. I don't know what problems still exist in their firmwares.
On the other hand, when it comes to an either/or, as implied in Paul's last post, and the result is that iBasso are currently doing NOTHING to remedy serious problems (for some) on their current product, well that's bad, isn't it?
I understand that all resources are finite but when it comes to prioritisation surely it makes sense to:
- Address the most serious problems first.
- Where resource conflict occurs, get the current product sorted so that the negativity that the current issues are attracting does not impact current sales. (If I was a potential DX80 purchaser I'm not sure I would buy one, having read just the last few pages of this thread. As it happens, the firmware issues don't impact my usage pattern anyway - though I'm just aghast that iBasso are neglecting fixing serious problems in their current product in favour of discontinued products.)
I don't know what problems still exist on prior /discontinued models, accepted. If they are as serious as the current ones on DX80 then I guess our road with the DX80 is going to be perpetually bumpy!
