Thread Starter 

I have not much of an idea why the 1/4 plug would sound different than the 1/8, but it does. I have a special 1/4 to balanced (terminate so my balanced phones are back to common ground) and getting terrific sound. Beautiful decay. Peter Green never sounded better.

I am surprised that you did not notice this until now, as I discovered this by coincidence when I used the 1/4 adapter, as not to damage the 1/8 jack .

 

Happy listing..

This is not a problem for me as I use an amp with my DX-100. The portable amp only takes a miniplug.

I agree. The 1/4 sounds clearly different from the 1/8 to my ears as well switching back and forward. On certain tracks I may prefer the 1/4 but generally I like the 1/8 due to the more intimate sound you get. Yet the sound staging and separation isn't as good as on the 1/4. More euphoric on the 1/8 IMO :).

so the dx100 is like a 3 daps in one brick. one sound for 1/4 plug, another sound from the 1/8 plug, and yet another sound from the lineout haha. but hey, as least its not one dap in 3 stacks xD

I would like to see a 128 Go internal memory, a better UI, a FASTER UI & boot time & iTune Sync facility ....  with the option to turn OFF what we want without the need for rooting.

Is it a less powerful, IEM-optimized DX50 or a fully balanced DX200? Well color me intrigued.

As Fang has just kept me waiting SOooooooo long for the 901, the DX100 really tempts me

 

only one thing puts me off - a thread of 638 pages.

 

bottom line, is it a complicated purchase?

 

some of the stuff in this thread scares me away!
