You are of course entirely right to say that. Choices are what complicates things.
Personally, I feel that's a pity coz I like the neutral signature of Sabre chips.
Having said that, I eventually plumped for my current AK100 & Vorzuge amp coz I managed to get good prices for both.
But for pure sound quality, DX100 is still my choice for the current best DAP in the market.
Yes, the DX100 is an amazing DAP. Who would have dreamed it a few years ago. I think it will stand the up for a long time. Having stated that, I am still anxious for the DX50 for its size and I am curious as to the new user interface, which is not Android and is proprietary to iBasso (it will be purely for the music).
