No offense taken at all! Sorry to sound that way. I know...so many are in the individual camps that they refuse to see the pro's of the other product. LOL I guess it's human nature.
I also wanted to go down to one unit...the problem with using the DX100 as that one unit is the battery life. It simply doesn't last all day. You'll get 5-7 hours TOPS out of it...
Is the thing fantastic sounding without an external amp...without a doubt. Just about everyone knows about the horror story of the DX100's UI. Well not horror story per se'..but frustrating none the less. There are tricks one has to learn to get around certain issues with the DX100. By this I mean stopping services and rebooting to get the unit to update it's song list, etc...
The single smallest package combo I've used for commuting back and forth to work has actually been the RWAK100/T1 combo. It sounds utterly fantastic and has a smaller pocket footprint than the DX50 combo.
Then we come to price...I mean...the $800+ new DX100 or used in the $600 range....vs the RWAK $750 new to $600 used...vs DX50 at $250 + T1 used at $200...the DX50 combo wins...Space being the issue...for one unit..the only two answers I can see are either DX100 or the "non-ui" Tera Player.
Does the battery life affect your decision?
