I think so or maybe it will be ready to ship by monday, hopefully at my place but if not an extra day or two is fine as well. 

 

BTW if anyone is in the NYC area with a DX100 maybe a group demo/comparasion can be arranged, cuz im still wondering how the DX100 is like as well how it fairs against a RWA100 or even a stock AK100 cuz I had mine sent directly to RWA for mods so I have no idea how its like stock.

The crux of the matter for me is the performance of the RWA modded unit and whether the sound `blockage' has been successfully circumvented. If the modded RWAK100 sounds amazing, then it's functionality and format compatibility could potentially result in a killer DAP. 

 

Cheers,

The crux for me is whether or not the RWAK100 sounds better than the iBasso DX100.  And for me to seriously consider the RWAK100, it would have to better the iBasso unit by a fair amount...

I would never buy the AK100 if one has to modify it in order for it to sound good. This is absurd, if Fang came out with the 901 like that he would be panned.

I agree.

I still have my doubts it will sound better than the DX100. The modded unit may come close to it though. But that has yet to be seen. I'm looking foward to AnakChan posting his impressions between them :).

I've never heard either, so I'm afraid I'll have to rely on the opinions of people who's taste I trust, at least at first anyway.

 

But I'm leaning toward the iBasso to begin with, being a big Android fan.

 

But I tend to agree with the opinion of many others here, that if the AK100 needs to be modded to simply be acceptable, that makes it a (far) inferior product.

 

But in the end, it's stellar sound that I'm after, so if, IF, the RWAK100 does best the DX100 I'll have to seriously consider my options.

 

And I guess we'll all have to wait and see just what HiFiMan ends up releasing...
