    I have a pair of IEMs
    Noble Audio Savanna Universal In-Ear Headphone with Moon Audio Silver Dragon balanced that sound very clear and articulate they have 4 BA per side and JH Audio Rosie 6 BA per side. I use AK100II,AK300 and Ibasso DX150,200 as source.

    I use Alclair RSMs CIEMs which are a bit more than you may want to spend with a FAW cable. You may want to wait a bit for the new iBasso it04 that's coming out soon, its suppose to punch way above its price point which should be 500 US dollars.

    Be careful a little.
    For my specific case, the 2.5 balanced connection between my Onkyo and my Oppo PM3 does not work for a reason I never found out. Am I doing something wrong ?
    I use a proper simple strait 4 pin TRRS (R+R-L-L+) cable. There is an obvious phase problem which can be demonstrated by playing a mono file.
    Again, I hope what people call "stage" is something else than a phase problem between channels. ??
    For now, until I have more time to dig the question, I only use the un-balanced amp. With a short 1-2m cable anyway :wink:

    Does anyone think the Onkyo and Oppo do not have the same TRRS standard ?
    One could be CTIA, while the other OMTP. This would explain the out-of-phase issue.

    I used my PM3s with DP-X1 all the time in balanced mode, I think you got the wrong cable .I will try and link the one I had which was only 9 bucks on Amazom.

    Does this device use both DACs with the unbalanced connection?

    Oh dear.

    How disappointing.

    I was hoping Poweramp would use both DACs.

    Hello Friends:

    Does anyone know a procedure to get past the Google Factory Reset Protection (FRP) dialogue on this device once you install this ROM?
    I have the original Google account that I set this device up with when I purchased it, but its not accepting it. I explain why in this post.

    Thank you very much! :)

    Hey Guys
    My mate and I want to compare a two pairs of headphones at the same time. Can I run 3.5mm split cable out of the Dp-x1 3.5 mm headphone jack, or a '' Y'' splitter basically?

    There's no need, surprisingly, for an extra amp to drive dt1990 on x1a.
    This can comes with 250 Ohm impedance and Tesla 2.0 tech, which makes it super easy to drive. (Easier than my 32 Ohm dt990 lmao)
    Set gain on High and vol around 100, will be sufficient.
    I'm using ifi micro idsd bl as my portable amp/dac as well and found no distinguishable difference on 1990 driven by it or x1a.

    Hello all,

    Sorry to intervene on this quite old post. I recently bought a DP-X1 and I'm in the process of installing the DP-X1_0.1.37.8_VTX_Lite firmware. I'd like to backup my boot & system partitions but twrp recovery seems to be unable to read data on the DP-X1 internal storage, SD card 1 is mounted but SD 2 is not. The select partitions menu is desperately empty...
    Is there some trick to make backup work ?

    Thank you for your help !

    I just ordered the Audeze LCD-2 and im wondering if anyone here is using them with dpx1. Would need amp? Audeze says optimal power is 1-4W and dpx1s output power is 0.150W right?

    Hi CoCostanza

    Wide soundstage on AK JR lol. There is nothing like this, sorry mate:) AK JR has noticeable smaller soundstage than iBasso DX80. And DX80 doesnt come even close to the Onkyo. Actually Onkyo DP-X1A and Pioneer XDP-300r (almost the same sound) have one of the biggest soundstages in DAP market (some even say that bigger than sony wm1a). But this soundstage gives you some cons, like a bit thinner and lighter sound signature.
