Couldn't agree more. I have the DX100 and the DX50 with me and I find myself reaching for the DX50 most of the time. Yes, the DX100 has better imaging making it slightly more natural sounding, but I'd say that the DX50 is overall the better DAP, regardless of price. There, I said it. Bring on the flames.

However, this last week I've been primarily using my 4.A CIEM after a month or two not using it, and I forgot how much I enjoy it.
Hearing the 4.A/ A.i is a good match increases my chances at having a good pairing here.
You will be enjoying the 8.A with the DX50 as well

Yep, that's the sound of the amp coming on. And it's absolutely nothing - you should hear the DX100! Plugging in your iems before turning it on is not something you'll do more than once. That big amp goes POP!
