Does the DX50 have a warmish tone to it? Looking for something with slightly warm with my coming headphone which I am getting beginning of next year? Debating between MA900 or SRH1440 smily_headphones1.gif

There is a hint of warmth, but nothing dramatic. The x3 is much warmer than the dx50, from what I've read.

Oh well... That brings me back to debate again between X3 or DX50 or a tube amp. Tube amps are much more expensive though... I do however see some prefer the DX50 over the X3 and that sounds like a good sign!

I've heard the X3 was having issues with dust entering the screen... and DX50 has lots of bugs...

 
Anyways, I'm happy with AK100 if you ask me.

Ouch... Choosing DAP seems harder than choose amp/DAC T.T and I doubt I can afford paying $300< on DAP

I guess X3 is the best choice for now, at least til DX50's bugs are fixed. Have you looked at new sony walkmans btw? They should have a fairly good sound with amazing form factor.

I have ever consider it (Z and F series) but I only need it for music and the extra features may just get wasted. The A series from what I heard online, the SQ is not on par with the Z series, the Z series is better in comparison.

Yeah ATM I am set on FiiO X3 but will see... XD

I had the E series, but Z series is better imo as well. 

 
X3 seems like the best choice, atm.

I heard iBasso released a new firmware for DX50 and I guess it solve most of the bugs xD

Which one is more powerful? X3 or DX50? [just in case I get something like DT880 250Ohm, HE-400]

I believe the x3 has more output power overall for lower impedance stuff. 270mw @ 32ohm, 30mw @ 300ohm for x3. 31mw @300ohm for the dx50 but im not sure about at other impedances. I doubt either will satisfy full sized headphones on their own, without an amp.

So I decided to go for high-end mode instead of mid-Fi xD

Probably going for FiiO E12 + L9 with Hifiman HE-500! And now the saving... As this is totally out of my budget

Wish me luck biggrin.gif

I'd still say go for the ADA4627 for your uha-6s.
