I have some choice words for that and none of them are good.
I have though long and hard about this so I am not jumping into anything lightly. I have had hours upon hours of listening time on a DX100 so I think I know what I am getting myself into. I don't care much about what OS is on the device as I would be paying more for the ability to listen to good music first and a decent UI. Basically, if I want the latest Android OS then I will go and get a device that has it, but I have no real need for it.
What attracts me to the HDP-R10 is the basic iBasso hardware plus the additional upgrades/changes from the original DX100, mainly battery and support for multiple files.
I will most likely play with a demo in one of the many audio shops here in Japan before ever making my final decision, but recent discussion with fellow Head-Fiers in Tokyo have me eyeing the Hi-Fi Man 901.
