very VERY confused...
can't get the 801 in UK any more
901 is still a myth to me
C4 won't do 24/96 flac and has no line out
DX100 seems to need a degree in Cobalt to make it work!
I think the first 500 pages of this thread do a disservice to the DX100. And all the good folks here talking about extra amps, capacitors, rooting, and APIs are, LITERALLY, scaring new buyers away. They almost scared me away. But I've had my DX100 for a week and I've found that virtually nothing they talk about applies to the average user, like me.
New users who like to fully research equipment, like me, feel compelled to read through hundreds of these pages, starting from page 1. But the device now is nothing like what has been described in the first 500 pages. It's MUCH better. I think there should be a separate thread for the extreme modders.
For people out there thinking about getting the DX100, it is not nearly as complicated as the advanced users who do most the posting in this thread make it out to be. You turn it on, you load a file, you plug in your headphones, and then play. That's it! The UI is below average, but it's not completely unusable and it's not as slow as they would have you believe. I wouldn't compare speed and usability to the latest Android phone but, once again, it's not as bad as you would think by reading about all the mods people are doing. It takes less than 60 seconds to boot up and start playing a song. That's less than my Androdid phone!

Given all what I said, this thread is still my primary place for information. Thanks all...
