    Sorry, interrupt a bit.
    I am thinking to sell my DP-X1A.
    Having it on desk for months, just use it once to try it out.
    Any one might be interested, send me PM.
    I will post it to trade thread later when I have time to make it.

    I'm curious about the DP-X1A/X1. How are firmware updates with Onkyo lately? Are they still actively supporting this player?

    Has anyone experienced noise with 3rd party apps, I tried 5 including tidal and they all make noise.

    I've only had the DP-X1 for about 6 weeks. Correct me if I'm wrong - but since this runs on Android 5.1.1 we won't see system firmware updates. Instead we have updates to the Onkyo Music Player app. Which was recently updated on March 14th.

    Since the DP-X1 was released, about a year ago, I believe there have been two firmware updates - one soon after the DAP was first shipping, and one just recently, when they began shipping the DP-X1A. Onkyo has still not delivered a firmware update to provide the originally advertised USB DAC functionality.

    I don't recall them advertising such an issue

    Just looked back at the beginnings of this thread, and you're correct.

    I came to this thread at the end of last Summer, when people were speculating about Onkyo releasing a USB DAC firmware update - and thought it was something that had been planned, but delayed.

    Hey guys, anyone know if the dp1xa supports balanced line out (edited: I mean fixed level line out) on the 2.5mm output? So i can feed an external balanced amp. Or is line out only via the 3.2mm single-ended output. thanks!

    edited for clarity :wink:

    The 2.5mm jack does support balanced output.

    I've got a DP-X1 (not the "A"), and I use the 2.5mm TRRS balanced headphone output to drive earphones & earbuds.
    I've also used the 3.5mm TRS unbalanced output in fixed line level output mode.

    But I don't yet have an amp with balanced line level inputs, to test whether the 2.5mm TRRS jack can also function as a balanced fixed line level output - which the volume knob doesn't control.
    I am working towards assembling a balanced single-ended Class A headphone amplifier (probably using a pair of XRK Pocket Class A NHB (No Holds Barred - Hand-tuned) amps).

    Take Care,

    Ah yes that is what I mean, whether that 2.5mm supports the fixed line level output function as well (the 3.5mm does of course)

    Thanks :wink:

    Have you tried DP-X1A? I am looking for some sound comparison on X5 iii and DP-X1A, but hard to find any.

    I should say that its the first one (b) not A
