Just got my DX50 few hours ago, first the construction is A1, feels solid and really looks well made, the packing box is quite attractive, I was going to throw the DX50 and keep the box :D
I won't be able to say much as I would like to because I need way more time to appreciate it but to start;
The word sexy comes to mind as to how it looks, I also like the heft. Now. I know some people feel that the iMod is not comparable to this dap but as promised I compared both and I am sad (and I kind of expected that) to say that my iMod is better than the DX50, so as such iMod > DX50. Now, I figured that this was unfair because the iMod requires an amp, so I figure let's use the same amp and compare again, well, sorry still holds. Ok now that I have that out of the way, I am going back to listen to it longer, put more mileage and also do additional comparisons and tests (maybe the burn-in might change my mind as to the above comparison - doubt though). I am also going to experiment with the interface and the USB access plus the Coax features now that I have a D12 available for that.
Conclusion though, it is a nice dap, no doubt I truly think iBasso got a winner in the reasonable category.
