What storage options are people using? Will class 10 64gb Micro SD work?  How does the advertised 2tb storage work? Sorry for the dumb questions!

Between iBasso D12 and PB2, which is a better amp for DX50?

Yes, the 64GB Sandisk MicroSDXC Ultra works perfectly.

Ak 120 vs DX 50 as transport

Source : AK 120 as transport use optical line out / hp out
DX 50 as transport use coax out

High :
AK 120 : more clean and very clear high better clarity
DX 50 : high is harsh compare to AK 120

Mid :
AK 120 : more clear and clean and not harsh
DX 50 : mid is harsh too compare AK 120

Bass :
AK 120 : better detail , less impact ,but enough , cleaner
DX 50 : better impact but harsh

Separation :
AK 120 : has better separation than DX 50

Soundstage :
AK 120 has wider soundstage

Noise :
AK 120 better noise floor , more black Background

Overall :
AK 120 more high end SQ as transport
Note : if AK 120 has coax , for sure DX 50 can not compete
Now use optic AK 120 is the winner

Price different can not go wrong
AK 120 price is about 4 times DX 50

My IMO

Source : DX 50
Dac / Amp : D12 mod with HiFlight Kit
Amp : PB2 mod with Black Gate
Iem : Earsonic S EM6

Note : I use single ended for fair comparison

PB 2 is clear as the winner

PB2 has Better pronounce , more balance , and more refine
Better black background
D12 : not as fine like PB 2 , a bit harsh

Hi, re storage, 64gb seems to be the biggest and easily available. Until I saw a 128gb on ebay, 111186904022. Does anyone know if this is the new "biggest" it is not mentioned on SD's website.

I absolutely would not buy that. SadDisk said as recently as June that the tech doesn't exist to make a 128GB micro SD card yet. “for microSD, from a technology perspective, the maximum that can be done at this point is 64GB, purely because of the form factor.” 

 

Notice that there aren't any real stores selling that? I just don't believe that you aren't getting ripped off (very common with flash storage off of eBay).

There are no 128GB MicroSDXC for sale yet. Be careful with ebay...

Rudi, you ruined my sleep, lovely setups and thanks for comparing.

If forget ak120 how would you say dx50 worth taking a plunge? i have rwak and think about ak120 so i wonder of having these will make dx50 redundant?
post #4017 of 18426

You are right I am sure, the price would seem to confirm it too. It is cheaper than all the 64gb's. I'll give it a miss.
