My wallet hates me :p  

 

But they do serve different purpose - AK120 for ultra-portability, sleek design and UI, HM-901 balanced for REALLY good sound.  I can only hope James and team can surprise us with something that brings all these dimensions together.   Fair or unfair X3 significantly raised my expectation for X5.  Was guessing DX50 would probably be as good or even better than X5, but now I expect X5 to be better!  Give us your best Fiio!!

I have used the Sony PCM-M10 recorder as my DAP for over two years, now.

Proprietary sigma-delta DAC (a wee bit bright and very slightly grainy compared to the best possible SQ, 9/10 IMHO)
Headphone jack can be programmed as Line Out to bypass internal amp
Supports MP3 and WAV to 96/24
4GB of internal memory
MicroSD card reader supports 64GB and 128GB when reformatted to FAT
Files can be copied between internal and MicroSD - either direction
Gapless playback within a folder
UI is bug-free but designed for recording, not for playback (no playlists or other typical DAP features)
Folders can only be one layer deep (my folders have names like "Pink Floyd - The Wall")
Built like a tank
Mass production pricing - a massive bang for the buck
It's beautiful
And it's a recorder!
