    Check your pre-amp settings on Player Pro, you may be ovesaturating the amplifier.

    No discord, the block function on this forum is excellent. :)

    Hi Guys, long time owner of the DX P1. The 2.5mm balanced jack has come out. What are the options to repair it? I got this from pricejapan.

    Got the same problem yesterday. Top part of balanced jack (metal ring and part of plastic - about 4mm) broke apart of jack. Glued with super glue. Will see if it will last. Hope so. Jacks - main bad issue of DPX1.

    A pcb photo for your reference. The bass ring is used for strength the jack. The Jack component is soldered to pcb.

    My friends DP-X1's 3.5jack have loosened so badly that the device thought the 3.5 is unplugged... I guess it is the "tunnel constant". Luckly The DP-X1 offers an 2.5 that is tighter due to less usage... Convert your iem to 2.5 balanced and you are ready to go, milk more juice out of the DP-X1 before the 2.5 dies. Then you will realize, maybe its time for an upgrade....

    That's precisely what I've done to preserve the DP-X1A. And when it's at my desk for 'speaker duties' I try to leave in the 3.5mm cable with removing it seldom as possible. Another thought is to try out other headphone cables because occasionally you may get one that is perhaps a nanometer wider

    Hey guys, thanks for your replies. I don't have the jack as well so I need a new one. Isn't Onkyo responsible for repairing this though? Cant I send it to them? Has anyone done that?

    20171004_102747.jpg My 2.5 jack bit the dust a month ago. The unit is back in Japan getting repaired (I bought it through a reseller who, very graciously, is handling the warranty repair). When it returns, the "dongle" you see will be the only plug I ever insert in the 2.5 mm jack. I won't take it out.

    I hope this fixes the durability problem. To take it a step further, I'm think about 3D printing a cover for the male end of the dongle to make it's contact with the top plate of the Onkyo larger so bending stresses get transmitted to the plate more than the jack.

    That I would go to these lengths speaks to the sound quality of the DP-X1. That I have to do yells at the bad design of the jacks. We shouldn't have to worry about the jack, let alone dream up fancy ways of protecting it.

    I moved from DP-X1A to DP-S1. Have a little one for a month.
    There is a difference in sound. Basically, X1A sounds wider with more air between instruments with a deeper bass and noticeable sub bass presence while the S1 sounds more compact with more mid bass presence, therefore it has a slightly faster attack to my ears without going that deep than the X1A. They both extract the same amount of details plus-minus , both tend to neutral-ish signature if I may say this way. I like both.

    They are quite similar design. But the bigger one use larger amplifier components so sound stage and density is better.

    Pioneer just come out a flagship SACD player. The D/A sections it used two ESS Sabre 9026 Pro doing fully balanced design. I think the basic for our future dp-x2 design.

    I see a bunch of on-line references to the ES9028PRO & ES9038PRO, but not to the ES9026PRO - is that an OEM model?
