Because i remember all big fuzz about DX50 outperforming AK, and some told even RWAK.
So i bought DX50 which happened to be a very nice machine, very good sounding especially if you come up from iPods and smartphones...
But, but, when i put DX50 vs. my RWAK the latter easily won, sadly so because i was planning selling it and keeping DX50. Hey said i to myself, RWAK has mod, so lets see what happens if i amp DX50 from line out...and i did. I loved what happened to DX50 because my T1 transformed DX50 into a serious contender and would make many listeners happy...still, cough cough again here.... RWAK unamped won from amped DX50 although by a smaller margin. I would not mention smoother GUI, smaller size and the looks but guess which DAP i kept? Right, RWAK.
Maybe, but I wasn't talking about the DX50 or AK100/120.
