The Sabre sheen has been reported to wear off with burn-in. I think NC8000 still has an ER4 kicking around, maybe he can try it our for you?
The DX50/PB2 stack is very good, but replacing the DX50 with the DX90 takes the PB2 to another level. The DAC(s) in the DX90 are clearly superior to the one in the DX50. Not that the 50 is bad by any means, the 90 is just better. Everything is so crisp and clear!
 Yep, that's exactly it. The files on the burn-in album are named and tagged to ensure maximum compatibility with just about any DAP out there. My DX90 has been running the album on repeat for the past 30 hours straight with no problems. (Plugged into a wall charger, that is) Going by memory, the DX90 is basically DX100 sound in a DX50 body. Looking forward to hearing your impressions.   Well, that would require Soren to get some more quality time with the DX90. The DX50...
You might want to skim the DX50 FAQ, there's a few pointers on making sure the files on the card are squeaky clean or scanning will freeze. Have you tried adding one artist folder at a time to see if it's a specific file that crashes it? It'll help a lot when trying to troubleshoot the issues.
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.
