I was going to buy the DAC-X but waiting for more impressions of the hifi M-8
I listened to the venturecraft go-dap X (both versions) and have written my impressions somewhere in the go-dapX thread. I thought it was a good unit, not as good as my Fostex hp_p1, but good value. V-Moda will release the Versa soon which I guess will be an upgraded go-dap X.
The headphone output impedance of the Go-dapX is 47ohm(they said to me via email), whereas the Hifi-m8 has 3 settings, the lowest being 1ohm-which is waaay preferrable.
It all depends on how much you want to spend, and what you want to use it for.
