I want to make an order off of newegg because I have some other things to buy on there.

On cables such as this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA39V17U4986, which look the same as the ones on ebay, it says "Can charge the extral USB device , like usb flash disk, usb hard disk NOTICE: (cannot charge the phone or tablet)"

Similar to some other ones as well. Is there a different classification of cable I have to look for, or is this usually a DEVICE limitation and the DX50 does not have it?
That should work just fine :-)

I'm not saying the C5 is actually warm, as in most fiio amps. But it sure is slightly smooth/warm compared to the O2. But maybe the O2 is slightly on the colder side.

And when I said heavy I wasn't describing the sound, but the weight when paired with the DX50. Try putting that stack in your inner pocket of your coat without having one side of you coat hanging 10cm lower than the other! 
ohhh, I misunderstood you. My bad! But yes, thanks for the opinion. smily_headphones1.gif

You kept your O2 and sold the C5, if I recall correctly?

For instrument separation and sound stage I believe they are equal. But M8 I think has a bit more depth.

Only if DX50 came sooner I may have found myself in a very difficult position picking up the M8 especially with the price difference. The DX50/O2 combo is easily below USD 400 including shipping while M8 is 699 and you still need a DAP.

That's very interesting..seems like the O2 isnquite the deal breaker! Well, I very much appreciate your description provided there, as it has certainly made me want to grab an O2. biggrin.gif

What's the battery life like compared to the M8?

I am not sure exactly what you are asking, but on a standard 1/8" stereo miniplug (TRS) the tip is L+, the ring is R+ and the shield is L and R ground common.

That is the industry standard for a cable using a 1/8" stereo plug.

Iˇm asking about pin configuration on coax cable for DX50, not analog.

agreed!!! :mad: (but i'm using a c421) - i like the pairing but the weight sometime make me think of carrying this combo.

The tip carries the positive signal; the sleeve, negative return.

Thanks Soren, I actually never bought any as you know I make my own but the eBay listing seems to be higher and to a certain degree reasonable. I was trying to help others who don't want to pay too much money buying the ICs. One of them I listed I know for a fact he makes them with high quality components and I thought is quite reasonable, it was the most expensive of the troops.

I know you make your own, do you have any to suggest to other members who do not or are not able to make ICs?

No problem :)

 

Yes I did, I actually traded the C5 (and some cash) for the AKG K702 anniversary edition. 

I also returned the corda quickstep. It certainly had amazing synergy with the DX50, but not better than the O2. For something more than twice as expensive than the O2, I was expecting something better. And, the quickstep was still way to big to put in your pocket. Might as well carry the O2 in a bag, if I would ever do that.

How does the DX50 on its own compare to the pairing? Might have to dig out my own C421 :)
