    Mine does not get hot while charging, it may get a little warm, especially in Balanced out while using both DAC's and Amp circuits, but that is natural if you ask me.

    I haven't had any problems with the audio jacks (yet), but I decided to preemptively deal with the issue:

    1.) Took some Kapton tape, and covered the top of the DP-X1
    2.) Used a fine-point Exacto Knife, and cut out the tape over the gap between the jacks and the bezel
    3.) Filled the gap with a gel-type glue, pushing / spreading it with a wooden toothpick
    4.) Removed the tape
    5.) Used the Exacto Knife to trim & remove any little blobs of glue
    6.) Cleaned the bezel and surface of the jacks with an Alcohol soaked Q-Tip

    Top-View - Kapton tape, after applying glue

    Close-Up - Glue on Kapton tape

    (NOTE: Cleaning the tape and glue with the knife, did cause some scratches in the surface of the Gold-plated connectors.)

    Question for those who have used different DAPs through the years - Does the Onkyo Play Music app display "List" Tag info the same way as other apps / players?
    What I mean is - In JRiver MC23, I can enter multiple Artists or Composers names in a List Tag field (using a semicolon as the separator character) for a Track when I rip a CD, and when selecting any of the names in MC23, the Track is shown.
    While the compound List Tag is in the Meta data for the Track, when it's transferred to the DP-X1, the Onkyo Play Music app apparently on accesses the single entry field Tag (not the List Tag), or the first name, before the semicolon in the List Tag.
    If I change the semicolon to something like "\\" in the List Tag, then the Onkyo app sees all the names on the line, as one name - so they still don't show up as separately searchable Artists or Composers for the Track.

    So, I guess I'm wondering if you know of a portable player app, that can read a List Tag, with multiple names in it for the Track, and be able display the Track when any of the names are selected? Thanks!

    No. Unfortunately, it cannot. :frowning2:

    I don't think you really should worry. Just be careful when you unplug as you should with any other devices, you should be fine.

    Isn't that what a hi-res audio player supposed to do? :)

    After two years, dp-x1/a still stands at the top selling position. I think people are making sensible choice by value and sound quality.

    I have encountered a group member got his xdp-300r 2.5balanced jack break off. So I think I post the picture up for everyone to see. This is not dpx1 or dpx1a but I think it is the same as dpx1a .

    The jack did not have the copper ring fall off. But it was broken at the below plastic part. I guess all DAP have similar plastic housing jack so all will break giving a big enough force.

    Modding the dpx1 (aka xdp-300r)

    I went to visit a popular mod shop in HK. I immediately saw two dpx1 are doing a mod. So you can guess how many are modded dpx1 (xdp-300r) in HK.

    I listened to a modded xdp-300r which have capacitors changed to larger capacitors. It sound more attacking (harder sound) with clearer lines of sound and more density. I listened via balanced port.

    I took a picture of an unassembly PCB. It have mostly all copper shield every noisy component that can affect the sound.

    Not many people believe in such treatment. Yet it dramatically reduces signal noise. Enables components to work on pure music signal. Your listening experience validates this.
    Do they repair or fix jack issues so widely reported here?

    Wouldn't the copper foil need to be connected to the GND, to make the most effective shielding?

    After 2 years of waiting, finally custom EQ backup and restore!!!! :ksc75smile: :L3000: Music version 1.8.0

    There are much more mod business than Jack repair business, so that will tell the fact.

    I am still at 1.72 . Is there any SQ difference for 1.80?
