And finally, can I use the microUSB cable to connect a DAC? I have ordered a C5D DAC/amp and would like to use the external DAC. But if I cannot, then I will hook it up to the line-in of the amp part.

The DX50 is cleaner and more detailed than the X3.

Has anyone else found using line out to an amp is a marked improvement over the DX50s internal amp? I find that the DX50 lacks attack and dynamics.

Yep, adding an amp definitely improves the sound.

3.Fiio X3= Returned couldnt browse memory card plus didnt like the sound for the music i listen to and no EQ option

DX50 is definitely well worth a try and deep in the money. With it's current firmware churning out impeccable sound, it's an overkill for its price tag.

Well the stock battery is rather lousy though. I had my set for around 1mth+ only and it's failing me soon. Full charge lasted me for probably around 5.5-6hrs of listening time.

YES!!! This is exactly my dad's fault. I remember he had like a 5 or 6 tier. He had a equalizer the had red lights in the middle of each EQ knob. Wish I still had it.

Well, it's my first post here. Just ordered the DX50. Will be interesting to try it out.

No worries, they'll be a point where miniaturization will reach a dreadful end then we'll be left with nothing to hold in our hands and back to the old days of watching and listening to nature., unless nature looks like the following in a very near future. eek.gif
