No worries. For db2, pls consider to make use of the balance line out of db2 . You can ask someone to build a hirose to rsa interconnect. I think its a better use of the db2.

For ios7, someone gave me an ipad mini recently i am just too lazy to get a cck to try out

Good point mate, I never thought about making a balanced cable for the DB2 and Duet. Just trying to look at my options for the DX50 and my iDevices. I'm hoping that the dual DACS in the DB2 will be sonically better than the DX50 on its own. And of course should be a distinct improvement with the iDevices :-)

They go very well together actually.

 

The added body in the sound signature of the Roxanne gives the AK240 signature an added body to the music presentation, making the music itself more engaging.

And the vocals coming out of the Roxanne through the AK240 is so lifelike I was surprised by this finding. Vocals never sounded so realistic in other BA iems.

iPad like devices will also be promoted for media streaming in the future.
I don't think 90% would run to apple... Android has a bigger market share than apple does by around 6%, and there's wp8, and 4% of miscellaneous OS's... And 90$? To stream music? You can stream for free on a bunch of other apps and services. I don't see me using beats music. Too much for something I don't need. If I want to listen to lossless, I buy it and listen to it over and over... And, that wouldn't run on slow data. I just don't see beats music working out well. Actually, on Lumia phones, there's an unlimited free music streaming service. Its 112kbps at regular quality, and if you pay 48$ a year, you get very high bitrate, the ability to skip any song, and basically any type of music you can think of... J-pop, 70's-80's, orchestra, big band, A-pop, K-Pop, electronic, chillstep, glitch hop... Anything. Monstercat etc. Its my favorite streaming service. Its better than beats music when I used it, and its considerably better than Pandora etc.

Apple and Samsung account for half of the smartphone market in the world today though Samsung did a 14% jump. Maybe it has to do with offering something that Samsung does not have. Samsung is getting into headphones too making you wonder what Apple will do with Beats Headphones?

 

These two are really fighting it out!

 

I don't know what the market share is with Apples other products. Many think that Apple has not come out with anything revolutionary in a long time. You have to agree that they came out with some amazing stuff in their golden age. They need either cutting edge tech now or offer services no one has to gain market share. I hope they offer a little of both.

Had myself a little Head-Fi session before the mosquitoes got the best of me.

Golden age? You mean... Around the time when iPhone was released? And, I'm sorry to say this, but Samsung isn't a good company. I would never buy a Samsung phone, nor will I ever buy an Iphone. I'm happy because windows phone 8 is finally taking off. Its projected to grow by 10,000,000+ users by 2015. Many, many, many fortune 500 companies are deciding to switch to wp8 as the OS they use instead of blackberry, and a ton of consumers too. That's going to be a 13% or more market share by wp8. I think Microsoft is more software and hardware focused, and Macintosh is more user friendly. (although windows 8 is a fantastic start towards being intuitive... And, there's a program called start is back you can download to get the start button back. I personally like the start button, so for when I get a windows 9 when it cones out, or 8, I'll definitely be using that program.) windows 8 is a jack of all trades with the exception of being a master of gaming, mac is more work and common task focused, and Linux... Linux is a mix of both, and it does it fairly well.)I personally hope for HTC and Nokia to make comebacks and kick apple and Samsung's schiit into oblivion. Nokia's mobile department was just bought out by Microsoft (which, I am fairly certain they were planning to do from the beginning. Think about it! The Nokia CEO retires. Gets replaced by a former high ranking Microsoft employee who quit months before. Within weeks, he announces Nokia's attention to make windows phone their main OS. A few years later, the CEO sells the Nokia phone department to Microsoft for cheap, and he retires from Nokia. As part of that deal, Microsoft gets to use the name Nokia until 2020, the actual company Nokia can't make phones until 2016, Microsoft gets the rights to the Lumia and Asha line, and the CEO of Nokia who retired after selling the mobile department gets a high ranking job in Microsoft's Nokia operation. That's extremely suspicious... And, yes. In 2016, there will be 2 Nokia's that are making different phones. Just a guess, but the actual Nokia is going to pick up Symbian again, use android, or both.)so Microsoft is planning something with their Nokia Lumia's, and the actual Nokia has a good chance at success when they come back with a new line of droids and/or Symbian phones. HTC one is the most popular phone among male teens anywhere I go, so they seem to be gaining a distinct following there... And, the M8 is also gaining an audiophile following here on head-fi. 1.3v max voltage, and fantastic audio quality... Some say its almost as good sounding as the FiiO X3 in a lot of aspects. Now, sorry for being off topic in this long rant, but at least some of it was about audio!

I agree. I forgot to say I also love LG, especially their nexus 5. So fast and intuitive.
