Looks pretty nice. But is it photoshopped?

Why would it be?

I know the leaf skeleton will definitely be my next choice when the HY5 comes out. Patience patience but gosh those look really pretty.

I share your excitement about the HY5, wonder when Headphonia is going to publish the BA6 review?

The cable for my HY-TF10 have given up the ghost recently.
It's seen almost daily use for around a year now so it lasted well.
I've ordered the new BA-x cable to replace it.
Looking forward to it as I'm really not a fan of guide wires.

The iBasso DX90 and the BA4f is just a match made in heaven...

 

Just FYI

grrrr the envy on my part is just palpable haha the Fiio X3 is not too shabby. Cant wait to see what my HY3s sound like with it.

Just curious really, what advantages are there in having the sockets recessed to the ciem instead of flush?

Thanks

*******, I've had a DX50 since release, considering how much audio gear I've bought the past few months I doubt I'll be upgrading anytime soon

LOOKS BABY!

I think the two pin variants benefit from being recessed as the delicate (well, kinda) pins have added support to help resist bending.

It looks to me a though the new connecter is a better design from the perspective of mechanical integrity.
But it looks soooo good recessed.
Almost like a fixed cable.

Man I can't wait to see this new cable and connector

I sold it because there was just too much hiss with the DX50 -> BA4f. I managed to get €150 for it, you can always do the same? :)

 

Buying head-fi related stuff really isn't buying. It's more like renting it, untill you sell it to someone else...

 

I tried to purchase the D-zero to go with my android phone, but the mp4nation.de store is absolutely horrible and after three weeks of not receiving anything I demanded my money back

 

I'm glad I did, because the DX90 sure as heck sounds better than both previously mentioned DAC-AMPs.

Remember me when you want to sell DX90 :tongue_smile:

Nah, they'll probably have a DX95 by then. Having 4 Sabre DACs and 17 opamps, en 17 micro sd slots :p

My main issue is there's a tiny line across the top left corner of the screen, everything works perfectly but I feel that would drag the price down too much. I bought a set of hd650's again, panam amp, sansa clip+, CE2E and reshelled BA4F in the past few months. I'm meant to be a student.

 

If I could get £150 never mind 150EUR I'd be very happy

 

Do you feel the difference in performance is worth the price? I liked the sound of the fiio X5 although I haven't looked into it much, I do prefer the look of the dx line.

 

I just flashed my DX50 today with a DX90 firmware port that bypasses android sound processing completely and goes straight to the dac, I'll see how the sound change is when I get my BA4

Not interested in those 4 dacs or 17 opamps but high capacity is important for me, that is the only reason I haven't bought DX90 now.

 

Then again by the time I finish the master and get a job, I believe successor of DX100 will be out. Hopefully they will manage to bring the capacity to close to 500 gb.
