I think for guys considering buying one of these as your next player has to consider the type of phones you own..Guys saying one dap is superior over the other. The funny thing is I have seen that on both camps. DX50 is better than the X3 in the DX50 thread. And in the X3 thread the X3 is better than the DX50.
The truth of the matter is I think both will be very capable but again if all the phones you guys own are bass heavy big sounding phones with rolled off highs the DX50 should give that sound more stage separation and highs it needs. Phones that are bright or more detailed neutral phones will benefit from the deep full sound and the touch of warmth the Fiio sound will present. The theory just makes sense. I will get my DX50 here on the 3rd batch of players being shipped. Will see if it holds true. I bought it just to hear my CKS1000 in full glory. Lol.
So consider the theory and may it help ya'll choose the right player for you..Or just get both and have your lobster with your prime rib..
