Just none of the hi power required cans

Did you try with HE 6?

 

Maybe I can go for HD800 or LCD X for home use.

Don't expect dedicated desktop amp quality. I have tried it with HD800, MD 3.2, HD650. All of them sounds really nice but of course all of them will sounds even nicer with dedicated desktop amp. No matter how powerful R10 it is still a portable dap.

Ok man thanks a lot. I think you use yours daily. Do you have any problems apart from its size which I know doesn't bother you?

 

Also how about the battery life? 10 hours hopefully? I think with SE5way the combo is amazing.

Yep, daily commute and sometimes in the office. Very acceptable battery life. I charge it once in 3 days, usually when it's down to 20%.

 

The SE5 combo is indeed amazing. Enough power to drive 5 drivers with complex crossover.

D*** it man, I am gonna order it I guess. I had hopes for Calyx M but it appears to be I can skip it.

 

The capacity is a problem still though. Do you think it supports the new coming 128 gb micro sd ones?

But it
It's cheap and works great. It sounds really good
And the 128 gig chips work

I am most probably gonna buy it. I just want to wait and see if DX90 release will push the prices even lower. A few weeks of extra waiting is okay. I also need remolding for my SE5way so I don't have to rush things.

 

This master is taking too much time, I can't even make an appointment with audiologist to get new ear impressions :frown:

I understand and you should do what makes you feel ok. But in this hobby there is no ok and only I think so for a short while. Hahahahaha.

For me no ibasso as the firmware thing drives me carazy. But the hdpr10 is a brick , so it is. A toss up.

You might also want to read up some comparison first. Maybe the DX90 will suit you better if your main rig is SE5. But from storage point of view, the R10 will win, 64GB internal and 128GB uSD. Pretty sweet!

Storage is kinda important to me. I was thinking about DX90 and meenova with usb otg, so basically 2 micro sd card slots, but on DX50 using usb otg makes the player extremely hot and provides very short battery life (around 4 hours) so it is a no go for me.

 

Then again maybe I can just get DX90 and install those new 128 gb micro sd cards and be done with it for a while.

Whilst storage size is quite relevant, performance is also a factor to consider. Personally I'm not certain how satisfactory the HDP-R10 (or DX100 since that's what I used to have) will perform with a 128GB microSD & 64 GB internal when media scanner starts running.

post #974 of 1621

I expect that it wouldn't make that much difference. I have right now 128GB full of music (64+64), I remember that it took a while to index all files during my first start up after a clean format. But after that second start up takes like 30-40 seconds max from pressing the on button to actually be able to play a song.

Admittedly i didn't own the HDP-R10 but I think it's almost the same hardware as the DX100 except for the power side and the OpAmps and with the DX100 everytime I power off/power on, it'll take at least 5 mins for media scanner to complete. Same whenever I added, deleted tracks. I sold my DX100 at a very old firmware (by now) though. Maybe they've tweaked it, no idea. But the HDP-R10 seems to have a different firmware anyway.

 

Once music started playing though, UI was decent, not great, but decent (I don't change tracks regularly....just usually let the album play through).
