It wouldn't be a bad thing at all to receive an extra battery. No wonder I couldn't receive the DX50 yesterday and today. I was expecting it to arrive yesterday or today the latest as I am in Hong Kong.

Anyway, good news to all that are in the first batch! [cheers]

As a compensation, we will include a spare battery inside the shipment. We hope you can accept our apology. Best Regards, iBasso Audio anybody else get this?

Just got the exact same message a few seconds ago.

I got the email too. When they said their courier needed 1-2 days to process the shipments, I thought they had already sent out the first batch.

I do hope this does not mean that the subsequent batches will all be delayed....

This make more sense as it would be quite strange if they only find out the metal housing have issues this late but can still remedy them before the 6th.  My heart skipped a beat when I read the email and was thinking the metal housing but it isn't really logical.

At least they are answering your emails.

Got an e-mail about a delayed shipment due to case supply as well.  A bit disappointed, but I'll take the free battery.

i read this as the facia and back are brushed metal (as according to the pictures) with the rest being plastic - which to be fair is exactly what I expected based on the pictures. Kudos to ibasso to throw in the battery

I asked them to send it via EMS as ill be on holiday next week. At least if it comes while in away Royal Mail will keep it safe for me. smily_headphones1.gif

So the construction is analogous to a 1970s pocket calculator? smily_headphones1.gif

Never mind, I'll probably buy one anyway, if it can host a 2TB HDD. Could be a good cheap music server! I do require it to drive HD600s and DT48es, though (I presume it can). The alternative would be a Rockboxed HM601 and a lot of SD cards....
