  Hey ppl!!
 
Great news:
 
first custom made firmware for dx50 from pleer.ru (by DOC2008):
 
http://www.mediafire.com/download/otm37jnz8i0n8ig/DX50V128_mod_by_DOC2008.zip
 
it's 1.2.8 fw with 1.2.6 sound libs.
 
 
just for curious advanced users.

 
Interesting... I think 1.2.6 was my favourite in terms of SQ, but I'm not sure that it was better than 1.2.8 as that seemed pretty good. Downloading now to see how I get on with it.. thanks for posting!

I've installed the custom firmware.... well, it works ok, it won't brick your player. Whether or not I can tell the difference in SQ (between 2.6 and 2.8) or not is still a pretty close call. I still think I prefer 1.2.6. Just a little wider soundstage perhaps? And a smidgen clearer. But - could well be my ears playing tricks on me. I'll stick with this for now I think, but I don't think I can whole heartedly recommend changing for the sake of any dramatic improvements..
 
I look forward to the 1.2.2 based version though - I never tried that out because of the bugginess, but keen to this time around...

  Don't really think that rockbox is better then ibasso's player..rockbox is 16/44...
 
But ... a 128 with 122 inside is closier then before..

 
More options are good :)
 
My library is 99% 16/44 and the features of rockbox are great! :)
