very simple, AK dap offers good functionality, stable system and very good sound all packed in slick expensive looking body.
DX50 looks like has a lot going for it but... after reading endless reports about bugs, freezes and similar i feel too much pain would kill its sound and else for me. i wish iBasso worked out system firmware before rolling out to the market because excellent sounding player gets killed by endless hickups.
just an opinion, i am still tempted but bugs really scare me, are there ants too?
As everything that you read about on the internet, you have to average it out.
I don't think there's that much negative feedback towards the DX50.
Have you read any other DAP appreciation threads that describes them as the holy grail? :)
