Storage

Storage is important. Even in this era of streaming music, you’d want to make sure you have enough space to store your amazing collection of music on your player. Imagine a long flight, it’s your offline files you’re going to be listening to.


Keeping your entire collection of Hi-Resolution music in one place is the most convenient way of carrying your music library. However, Hi-Resolution files are heavy. Most songs in a FLAC format can be about 100mb per track. So more space is always better.


Most players support both internal storage and expandable storage via an external memory card. Make sure you check both - the internal memory on players, and consider the maximum supported size of the expandable storage. It’s best to keep your library of offline files in expandable storage and use the internal storage for saving files from streaming apps.




At the time of writing this article, MicroSD cards for 256 GB were easily available and affordable for less than Rs. 2000. Higher capacity cards are also available, but that seems to be the sweet spot.

EXPERIENCE THE POWER OF THE AL-NEW FPGA-MASTER 2.0 ALGORITHM

iBasso has introduced their 2nd generation FPGA- Master, after an effortful year of algorithm development. The FPGA audio system controller directly requests audio data from the SoC and plays a crucial role in signal reproduction and maintaining signal integrity. The FPGA works seamlessly in synchronising and generating all audio clocks by utilising two NDK femtosecond oscillators, to achieve a synchronised single clock source. The FPGA-Master 2.0 offers picosecond-level precise control and adjusts the DAC clock, and data, and constructs the FIR filter in your iBasso DX260.

FIR FILTERS FOR LOWER DISTORTION LEVELS AND IMPROVED AUDIO QUALITY

The potential of the Octa DAC chip can be discovered with the FIR filter, featured in the iBasso DX260, which works hand in hand with the FPGA-Master 2.0 algorithm. The synchronous parallel output mode reduces discrete distortion between DACs to improve the overall performance of your audio. The FIR 2x mode and FIR 4x mode with FPGA-MASTER 2.0 deliver picosecond-level precise control and adjustment of the DAC clock and data is achieved, making each DAC data stream independently adjustable. Through the "delay parallel" of 4 DACs, the DACs form a hardware analogue FIR filter, which averages the differences between multiple DACs, reducing distortion and effectively improving sound details and realism.

Good price better performance

I have been using this device for last two weeks... and I am in love with it. I have never heard a dap performing this good for the price.
Yes ofcourse for few songs the bass sound muddy, sometime mids are really forward but still I love the dap for its battery backup and Sonic capacity .
Very handy comfortable, good user interface and wonderful effective parametric equaliser makes it the best option for the particular price range.
Now if I talk about battery replacement then for us it is no use because battery is not available here in india..not even hpz can help you with that .
Rest is rocking 💪
