IBasso DX50 vs Fiio X3 comparison thread - Page 14

post #196 of 270
Hi

I asked this on the dx50 thread but thought i'll ask here as well.

Would the dx50 be a significant upgrade in terms of sq over a rockboxed sansa fuze v2 that i've paired with a fiio e17. im using the line out of the sansa so the digital to analog conversion is done by the e17. i understand the e17 has the same dac chip as the dx50 and x3.

Will only be using with westone 4s.

Thanks

If you are using the line out of the Sansa then the E17 is only being used as an amp...

Hi guys, I am planning to get either a dx50 or a x3 as a portable player. If i am using it with another portable amp (627), which player has a better dac? I will be using mostly with my SD-3 and the K10.

They don't necessarily sound the same even though they have the same DAC

I have a X3, a sansa clip, fuze and FIIO amp...

The X3 is a huge upgrade.

Great, thx for your reply.

I have both X3 and DX50, in my opinion the DX50 is the better of the two. I had the E17 paired with an iPod classic which sounded great but I would take either the DX50 or the X3 over the ipod /E17 combo. Just my opinion.

This tells us that we always have to compromise, as the iPod has the biggest storage capacity but not the best Sound possible at this Price. The very expensive ones, have a bigger storage possibility, but no Wlan and or Streaming Option. Wonder when the prefect Player will come and at wich Price??

IPod classic = 250.00
Ibasso DX50 = 239.00

Not the same storage as iPod is 160 gb but the DX50 has a external slot which can handle a micro SD card or OTG for an external HD up to 2TB. smily_headphones1.gif

One other thing to note is that there is a DX90 and a X5 coming out in march. Everyone should consider these new marvels.

Does anyone knows which of these 2 players would pair better with a futuresonics atrios M5 (with mg7 drivers) ?

 

thanks
