Same here, I'll be very hesitant if it is any higher than that...

What I was thinking: how much do we have to spend to match the performance of a non portable, decent quality home amp/dac?

(I myself have an ipod 5gen rockboxed, an onkyo nd-s1 digital dock, a Carat-topaz dac: 140+50+100=290$)

......anything available, portable, that comes close?

We are very lucky though, because fiio has X5 coming soon, so it will keep iBasso from pricing the dx50 too high... basically what will determine the success of this model Is correct pricing. I don't mean that they should lose money on this model, but if they do it right, they will be selling these like hotcakes... I know I'll be one of those who buys it IF the price is right...


+1 reminds me about the 3rd generation console war. PRICING IS VERY IMPORTANT for profits  for this product. I hope they know the gravity of that.

I wish we had a general graph of head-fi'ers financial standing. Maybe I should ask the NSA?

Supernormal profits for him. Just saw the latest price 1680euros. Why would anyone get a Terra Player just get a dx50 already! etysmile.gif

He couldn't get away with a price increase like that, if he didn't have way more demand then he can supply.  I suspect he's using this ploy to get his orders down to a manageable quantity.  And he makes more in the process...

It'll all end in tears.

Well unless it's well worth 1680euros, we'd gladly pay for it. Till then, that could get us a lot of audio gadgets

Y'a know, you guys have gone through 2 pages of off-topic posts here? Hint hint ;-).

There's only just so much one can say about a product that doesn't exist until (at least) the end of July.

 

IMHO, this thread's done surprisingly well to stay as relatively-on-topic as it has, for 76 pages and almost 3 months wink.gif

There's not much we can discuss about the DX50 if nothing else that has yet to be mentioned has been known by us:)

Gotta keep ourselves entertained during the time in the waiting room, haha.

Although not intended as such, that last remark is just as true about life!

 

After all, we're all effectively passing our time waiting to shuffle off this mortal coil, are we not? LOL  wink_face.gif

An now it's gone full circle and it's headed out into deep left field. Oh well, a good chat concerning the meaning of life I'm always game for. I just hope there's killer sounding music on the other side.

I don't agree with the new price either, but as a previous TP owner I can say that the sound is different then any other player out there. Dark, neutral, very detailed, and this coming out of a £20 headphone. If you didn't had the change to listen to it, maybe you can and be ready to be amazed.
