Every single opinion posted so far has said the opposite.  I also very much disagree with your comparison of the Z2 to the DX100.
I'm amping right now, with the PB2. The DX90 surely has the DX50 beat when it comes to clarity & imaging, making everything a lot less congested. Listening to Tool - 10.000 Days and all the different layers and elements of the sound are crystal clear. Rain, Thunder, Bass, Guitar, Percussion and vocals... Everything is there and crystal clear.
The internal amp of the DX90 is better than the single ended output of the PB2, but the balanced output has them both beat. That being said, unless you want to go balanced or crave a specific signature I see absolutely no reason for adding an amp. This thing is a beast.
Initial impression after less than an hour of actual listening: The soundstage on the DX90 seems more accurate. Everything sounds just "right", like I'm in the studio (or at the concert) and not listening to headphones. Will do A/B comparisons later, right now I'm just plowing through my music like a kid in a candy store, sampling everything. Will load up some wide sounding albums later and tell you if the 90 is wider than the 50. The DX50 is still a great DAP, the DX90...
Not going to crack it open. Yet. Detail retrieval is clearly better than the DX50, as is imaging and layering. Color me impressed - very, very impressed. Everything is in it's right place and it's amazingly easy to just pick out the different elements of the sound. It sounds soooo clear, so very realistic. I don't have a DX100 handy for a direct comparison but I'll do my best to borrow one soon so I can do a direct shootout.  (This is using the PB2, so I'm only comparing...
Mine just worked, with the MicoSD card that just worked in my DX50. In the video I posted you can actually see the very first scanning it does on that card.
  Oh damn this is good. 24/192 playback is certainly not an issue and this little player has brought new life into my HD595 that were just gathering dust. I wonder how it's going to sound with an amp, say, perhaps a PB2 with topkit?    This DAP is just phenomenal, will post more impressions as I get more listening time!
  Mine just arrived. No time to listen yet (damn kids) but I figured I'd do a quick side-by-side of the DX50 and the DX90 booting and scanning    DX50: 1:12 for scanning 60gigs of flac, DX90 did it in 1:14. Looks like full card scans are about the same on them both.
Looks like The Wizard has put a spell on a fair maiden to ensnare her... 
Now THAT is nifty! Triple the battery life and very little bulk added, especially if you're not using an amp.
