Fidelizer 7.10 released – Proper fix with AudiophileOptimizer’s default shell and improve audio performance on Dante/Merging

Since AudiophileOptimizer’s default shell issue detected, I’ve been struggling to make a proper resolution for a long while and now I came up with a proper fix now. Fidelizer will detect default shell first and it won’t register itself if AudiophileOptimizer registers Fidelizer as default shell before.

I also improve audio performance with normal Windows audio engine such as audiodg.exe (which will be used with system DSP effects), some ASIO host controllers and add Dante/Merging compatibility so their networked audio technology will be fully compatible with Fidelizer.

By the way, I’m adding Chord Mojo into Fidelizer Mod project section now. If you’re looking for a fine DAC to use with Fidelizer software, you may consider Fidelizer Mod products or send me inquiry about modding others. I also modified Chord Hugo TT and a few highend DACs too. 🙂

Fidelizer Plus/Pro users should be received a mail about update and download link by now. If you somehow didn’t receive an update notification as I received some delivery failure message too, please contact me for an update with your customer data to verify.

Since we have over 2,400 licenses now so we can’t deliver all licenses in a single day with 1,000 sending limit per day. We made some changes to delivery platform to slowly send software update to customers. I also noticed some customers have yet to provide fidelizer.key data after asking a few times so please contact me back.

Added testimonial from Kevin

Here’s a new feedback today. I feel like it’s been a long while after busying myself with Purist ROM updates.

Thanks Keetakawee,

When I was thinking the sound could not get any better, it just did.
Many thanks.

Regards
Kevin

I’m glad to hear sound quality gets better in his system once again. Happy listening. 🙂

Fiio X5iii Purist ROM version 1.1.9 released!

 

Fidelizer Mod

 

For new users, please read about PerfectDynamics Sound Optimizations first for new improvements with Fidelizer ROMs.

 

I received notification about Fiio X5iii 1.1.9 ROM update on the day it was released and I started working on it immediately. It took me few days to launch this update because of new feature Balanced Turbo for High Gain that requires further tests with hardware modded device.

After testing Purist ROMs for version 1.1.9, all ROMs passed the test including units with Fidelizer Mod applied. Balanced Turbo feature works wonderfully with new opamps set I implemented and I highly recommend to use with high gain headphones.

-Based on firmware version 1.1.9
-Deodexed
-Apollo – Fidelity Edition from https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/apps-games/apollo-music-player-fidelity-edition-t3038629 included
-build.prop tweaks for better video and storage performance and improve battery life
-bundled audio effects removed but keep main engine (Poweramp works now)

Fidelizer Mod accepts modding your unit now!

Chord Mojo - Fidelizer Signature Mod

 

Back then we used to have screen issues with early DX200 units which can be a complicated case to handle with Fidelizer Mod. I resolved this case by offering Fidelizer Mod with a new unit to minimize the risks of getting defective screen while applying Fidelizer Mod to DX200.

Since DX200 has defective touch screen issue resolved and most units got their screen fixed, I’m ready to officially accept products from customers to apply Fidelizer Mod. You can order Fidelizer Mod product from website and I’ll send shipping information after receiving your order.

Aside from Fiio X5iii, iBasso DX200 and Chord Mojo, I also modify all other units. Here’s what I’ve done and going to do since last two months.

I also heard from clients about DAP getting a shorter life-cycle so it might be better idea to switch to a new DAP rather than modding. I’ve been on this journey since early days of iPod and iRiver (which became Astell & Kern) so I’d like to share some thoughts based on my experience.

 

Fidelizer Mod - Emm Labs

 

Getting a new DAP doesn’t mean it’ll always improve sound quality. Sometimes it’s more like getting a different flavor with different DAC chip or parts that cost about the same. You’ll see some audiophiles preferring older models from time to time.

You can upgrade your DAP with good reasons such as it has new features that benefits you like adding balanced headphone, full Android platform with streaming support, design looks cool and you like it. Go ahead. Take it and enjoy it. No harm no foul to buy what we like.

However, selling and buying a new ones will probably cost you over $100 up to $300 per upgrade. Using that budget to modify your product for real improvements might not sound bad for some devices like Fiio X5iii and iBasso DX200.  They’re decent models packed with lots of features and can be improved a lot with Fidelizer Mod. 🙂

iBasso DX200 Purist ROM version 2.7.188 released!

DX200 - Purist ROM

 

I’m sorry that it took a long while to update DX200 2.7.188 Purist ROM. Since there’s so many changes jumping from 2.5 to 2.7 version, I waited until I get DX200 unit to test with and I’m happy that I made the right decision.

Aside from releasing Fiio X7/X7ii while waiting for actual DX200 unit, I found out kernel file has different structure and method I used to before didn’t work. It took me a while to get working kernel with my modification for Enhanced / Advanced ROM.

-Based on firmware version 2.7.188
-Play Store added
-Apollo – Fidelity Edition from https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/apps-games/apollo-music-player-fidelity-edition-t3038629 included
-Revamped MangoPlayer UI with improved user experience
-build.prop tweaks for better video and storage performance and improve battery life
-Audio engine optimized for only audio playback (EQ/Gaplass features work)
-Bundled audio effects removed but keep main engine (Poweramp works now)

Added testimonial from Steve McCoin

Here’s another feedback today. This time it’s also from headphone user with a serious setup sharing his feedback in Fidelizer’s Facebook page.

I recently upgraded to 7.10 on a WIN 7 older i7 processor using Roon & Tidal into an Exogal Comet Plus running balanced into RSA Apache with the Sparkos Labs SS3601 opamps listening with the Utopia headphones with WyWires balanced Platinum. I was pretty surprised with the change and just enjoyed everything.

Glad to see Fidelizer feedback from a serious headphone system again. I missed Ray Samsuels products and been searching for the original SR-71 too. 🙂
