I wonder what the battery life would be if you use Wifi and stream flac on maximum volume with a very hard to drive headphone? Besides the battery, this thing seems amazing.

The people that are talking about this are the Sansa, nano, clip crowd. Al they want is to put a device like a match box in their pocket and go about their day, or go to the gym or go walking. I have no problem with people wanting to use their mp3 that way. If you want size, just go and get a nano6 and be done with. Please don't confuse size with reference audio. Please show me how you can get the level of sound that is matching the audio level as that of the "iPod-clas-DB2-PB2 or SR71b", or HM801,or DX100 down to the size of a pack a cigaret and have it run for 50 hours? It is just absurd. In fact, the DX100 is only the size of two of my Samsung Infuse stack together which is very portable by my standard. Mischa is right, when you are walking, running, or in the gym, you cannot be too seriously about audio anyway, so just go and get a Sony, Cowan, clip and you have your 50 hours.

I'm sure that the DX100 is nothing short of a brilliant feat of engieneering, even though it doesn't match my specific needs that well. That does NOT make it a poor product. I'm sure it's gonna have an effect on the market - HM-801 buyers are gonna see that you CAN have great luggable audio AND a nice GUI and other manufacturers will see all the IEM toting batterylife-craving loonies (like myself) and create a DAP to cater to that market.

 

This is turning into too much of a slugfest, I'll unsubscribe, by another Cowon DAP and wait for the DX50 to materialise - no matter who ends up building it wink.gif

You can find the measurements by googling 801 RMAA - its on another forum so linking seems bad form.

Yes, that's what different headphones and speakers are for.

 

Amps and DACs are tools with specific tasks and can be judged completely objectively.

I don't particularily care about the measurements if a device produce a sound I like to listen to

Whilst I respect the opinions of the more knowledgeable members here on the likely superlative sound quality of the DX100, surely iBasso could of squeezed a few more hours into the battery longevity and given us 10 hours of playback time. 7 hours isn't even a transatlantic flight time now that Concorde has been retired.

Get one of these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/New-Trent-Dual-port-IMP50D-Blackberry/dp/B004AM1OK4/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1327004047&sr=8-3

 

2,5 times the capacity of the 2000mah battery in the DX100, so that should give you a total of 24,5 hours.

Only the headphones actually produce sound.

 

If you prefer the sound of a given pair of headphones when fed by an inaccurate amp, all that means is it isn't your perfect headphone, not that the amp is good.

Dag...  That price is way to high for me, I guess I'll wait it out till people get buyers remorse and these start to go for cheap.

When I get dx 100, I’ll be doing a YouTube review with help of my daughter (who is turning 3 in April). I’m hoping that a 2 year old doing a review might be a cute, funny, entertaining change of pace from usual reviews. I’m already working on teaching her all vocabulary she will need to use.  Would you guys be interested? Do you think it’s a good idea? I get to teach her new things and have fun with her while doing a review.

 

I’ll be testing dxx 100 with:

  1. JH16 pro with Crystal Piccolino cable + Twag OM v2 Eclipse cable.
  2. Audez'e LCD-2 with Reference 8 - Silver cable by ALO audio.
  3. Sennheiser HD800.
  4. Shure 535.
  5. UE triple fi 10.
  6. Klipsch x10i.
  7. Beats DETOX.

 

I’ll also test it with these amps:

  1. Pico slim.
  2. Rx MK2.
  3. SR-71b.

 

I’ll also compare it to:

  1. IPhone 4 + CLAS; 
  2. Zune HD.
  3. COWON j3.

 

I’ll be covering in my review:  size, durability, overall build quality and accessories, UI and format support, battery life, and sound quality,

 

p.s. if I forgot anything, or you would like me to add anything else, please let me know.  Also, Would anyone be interested in an unpacking video?

Does this put out 12 volts, which is required for the input of the DX100.

Thanks I was looking for this for my Note.......

Mischa, I'm looking forward to your review.

Mischa:

Of course, you missed one of the most contested issue - a run down test to show the actual real life battery life. Preferably several run down time tests. One without the screen on, another with wifi on, another with 24/96 being played etc.
