Reread his post. Doesn't say anything about a release date. I think he was being cheeky.

Hence the "troll" image above ;)

I think that is the place holder for the dx50 but that might just be my hopeful thinking.

it supports up to 2TB micro sd card! I am sold.... biggrin.gif

but it will not be easy to navigate 2TB of music files on a portable device unless the firmware is really innovative...

Who knows how long it will take to release 2 TB cards. The DX50 will probably be long obsolete by then. Keep in mind they've yet to release 128, 256, 512, 1024 and then 2048. So it's gonna be a long time before we even see it IMO. It's mainly a selling gimmick at this point.

Thanks... without knowing the SQ, the only feature over X3 is the replaceable battery..

We have 128gb micro sd bigsmile_face.gif you can't get one that will load fast thou you give that up for more memory space.  Looking forward to a 512gb (fast) micro sd, I think I'll be set with that.

128 gb micro sd? I think we currently don't have it, did I miss something?

Not micro but regular full size SD cards are available in 128 GBs and that is what he's referring to. Although the DX50 cannot use these cards but Micro SD cards.

Well I know that but he wrote 128 gb micro sd that's why I was surprised. I also heard 128 gb micro sd's are coming in the near future.

I emailed them about that.

 

They said they're working on it.

 

I said wtf it says June 2012 and I've been anticipating it?

 

They apologized.

 

 

There's a LOT of new ES9018's now in 2013 so no one cares, for example there's a dual-mono ES9018 on ebay by "LKS Audio" which looks really nice.

 

 

Fiio said they'll no longer be using Wolfson WM8740, they're moving on to PCM1794 or CS4398.  Every single iBasso product already uses the WM8740 - why the %%%% do we need yet another.

 

The huge success of the DX100 was due in part to the ESS ES9018, Hifiman got really crazy at them on the Chinese internet and started developing their own ES9018.

 

 

Now iBasso is making a thirtieth installment of the WM8740 chip, since if they released a $400 ES9018 DAP in a slimmer package, the DX100 would likely become discontinued.  Politics.

 

Sincerely,

 

Not Interested

I honestly don't care if a product uses the lastest gold-plated ESS 1337 OMG Edition or if it is made from recycled bottle caps and yarn. If it sounds good, I like it. If the price/performance ratio is good (and it fits my needs), I'll buy it.

 

Just my two cents, YMMV, to each his own and all that.
