Are they competing in Ivy league?

According to some head-fiers that Studio V is their best DAP.

 

May be can give it a face-lift by improving the UI, hiss-sound and also support more format like ALAC but keep at low price like X5, then this will be very welcome!

If you buy a DAP called the Master, does that make you the slave?

It's too bad the PCM1792 has been chosen already and isn't likely to change: http://www.esstech.com/Pr_2013/ES9018-2M%20%20PR%20130621.pdf

To me, what's more interesting about this is that Sabre are actually taking the mobile DAP market so seriously as to market their top-of-the-line DAC in a mobile-specific package. That says a LOT about how big they think the audiophile DAP market may explode, soon.

 

Good news for everyone!!

post #730 of 19479

...and James, you do realise that it's no good just using that DAC in your E19, don't you?

 

You know everyone will be wanting a DAP that uses it, too, don't you?

 

I can already imagine iBasso will be using that new DAC to produce a successor to the DX100, and we all know what a fantastic-sounding player the DX100 already is.

 

I'd love to see Fiio bring out a DX100 competitor...

E19 will come before or after X5?
Will E19 have Coaxial in?

I would be absolutely astonished if a flagship DAC did not offer Coax-in, unless the maker was being deliberately obtuse.

The E17 allows for Coax and Toslink input guys. I would be even more astonished if the E19 doesn't.

I don't get all these Ivy League references. For the most part, it's a fairly mediocre sports league, at best.

Good.... Stacking e19 to x3 maybe a more logical choice if my priority is sound over fancy display and true portability...
