Thanks lin0003. I think I won't need an amp for a long time. When I bought it and if still I have questions in my mind, I will ask here.

What is the difference between 6.3 mm HO and 3.5 mm HO? Well, I mean, apart from their size. Does 6.3mm HO provide more power? I think it is a nice touch to have that option in a DAP but apart from DX100 and C4 no one have it. In C4 it provides more power what about DX100 / HDP R10?

The 6.3mm HO can be used with IEM together with an adapter. I have tried both HO with my JH13 FP (which has an excellent synergy with R10/DX100) and I prefer the standard 3.5mm which seems to provide a more smooth sound. My favorite settings are high gain and 3.5mm HO.

So it does affect the sound. Is it more powerful you mean or what is the difference in between exactly? I know pretty much every headphone purchase come with an adapter for 6.3mm but honestly I didn't have a chance to use them so they just stay around there doing nothing. Since I am about to get that DAP I wanted to learn if there is a difference or not.

In my experience (and with my IEMs) the 3.5mm HO sounds more natural, with very lively and smooth mids. The 6.3mm seems to be more focused on the treble and, while giving a somewhat wider soundstage, it sounds more hifi  and slightly grainy to me. Please keep in mind the effects most likely will depend on the specific model of IEM/cable used.

I actually find the 1/4 jack had better detail slightly.

We have the same impression
I and my friends have already compared DX100 vs HDPR 10
With many headphone and even active speaker .
The winner is my HDP R10 , the SQ more balance and very clean and more black background .

I really think I am going to get this, nothing seems like proving better sound quality and features.

Link Lin already suggested alo Rx 3 B , Intruder and pico power .
The best if I pair with WAGNUS Epsilon S
The SQ from line out is better than from HO, cleaner and more detail
Wider soundstage , better separation.
The reason if you use with external amp with line out , you have pure sound from digital dac chip Sabre ,
If you use HO , it is so kind double amping , not pure SQ from sabre dac chip

That's a very good explanation Rudi!

So you guys also suggest Miracles? They match perfectly with the Sabre chip?
