I never been to Audiophile University but 25 years of buying stereo equipment has led me to say this DX100 is damn good. If its bright I can make it less bright, if too bassy I can make it less bassy. I love the bass I am getting out of this player with the MG6Pros. Bass pounding hard and clean that its making my shells vibrate in my ears. Highs are high and I can hear every word the singer or singers are snging and I am hearing this while walking throught the crowded Hong Kong streets. **** recordings 192 and demos that are rare are much clearer and better sounding out of the Dx100 and of course Flacs are superb.
Nice mate !! being a tad of a basshead , id be interested in your best bass response eq settings
