The RWAK120-S is comparable to Desktop Dacs in the $1500 +/- and for me, without a doubt, the best portable source available.

 

A little unfair on the DX50............ 

 

Even better than the DAC section of the hm901?? Or are they on the same level, just with different signatures?

Sure, you meet the at least +10 feedback requirement. I will be starting a thread when mine comes.

I never tried the line out from the HM901 and have sold it now. Although, I will probably buy another 901 down the road..........

 

 

 

Back to the DX50, a little hiss with my FitEar C435..........

Aye, Heir Audio 8.A seems perfect fit, I think.

Tempted to buy.
I read above that it drives the lcd3s so it will work nicely with my mad dogs smily_headphones1.gif
To keep my imod/e12 or go for a more practical and aesthetically pleasing unit.

This is quite a surprise to me, I did not expect too much but the Spiral Ears SE5 sounds remarkably good with the DX50.

This is definitely on my radar. Initial impressions look positive. Now to wait for the in depth reviews and the response from ibasso regarding the issues pointed out on the other thread.

If you listen to classical music, how does it sound with symphonies and orchestral work? Symphonies are perhaps the most demanding for clarity, separation and stage. Try Brahms' 1st piano concerto and Chopin's 1st piano concerto - listen to the very beginning parts of both 1st movement. Let me know if congested. Sorry too much to ask. :wink_face:

I will try and get back to you later this week............
