Yeah I'm going for the x5. I can finally stop carrying around my tablet and this e18 sigh
I should mention that this will be my first DAP and that I have only once listened to a DAP so no matter which one I get I'm pretty sure both will be fun for me. If iI can find the dx90 cheaper I will get that but for now I will be saving up for the x5.
So the x5 sounds like a better choice for me, considering that my dt770 are easy to listen to and rich in bass. Like I said i listen to everything so a smoother presentation will go well with the x5. And it's a better choice for my wallet :P The last thing I want is my music being boring 
OK so the x5 sounds like it will be more fun while the dx90 will be more resolving. I listen to dubstep and classical music and a little rock here and there so the reason why I want a neutral DAP is because I don't want the songs to sound completely different from each other. I listen to almost every single genre out there so I need less coloration with my music so the dx90 might be a better choice but I also want some fun in my music so it won't sound boring. Maybe I will...
I've listened to the sennheiser hd600 and hd650 and the k701 so I know what warm sound is like. Those three are very laid back and warm sounding with the k701 being brighter and thicker in the midrange and treble. So if the dx90 is more neutral then that is the DAP I'll go with. I personally don't like warm sound signatures if the x5 is like that.
That would take too long, I have more than 1000 songs and I'm also leaning towards the x5 because I've read it's more neutral compared the the dx90. And I kinda dislike apple for being too proprietary and limiting.
 My friend let me try her iPod with 160 gigs of memory and I plugged some cheap headphones from radio shack in and the sound I got could be compared to my current setup with my fiio e18 and dt770s but I don't use apples music format files. I use 320 kbps 16bit and 24bit music in mp3  so that would be a problem buying an iPod to use.
After some consideration I might go for the dx90 but can someone compare it to the fiio x3 in terms of detail and imaging because that's what I'm looking for. 
The hifiman hm700 doesn't look as promising as the dx90 or fiio x5 but I will consider it
Hifiman or dx90? I want power and the most musical experience I can get for 300 to 400 but I am also getting a summer job as I am still only 17 so maybe I will save up for the astel and Kern ak10? Or should I just get the dx90? So confusing :/   BTW this DAP has to last me because I will be upgrading my headphones in the future so I need to make a good choice.
