will a latest breeds of OLEDs(better than lcds) really kills the battery power that fast? And there will be screen time-out option and brightness control to preserve battery.

Also it comes very handy if you want to fiddle with custom eq's that has more than 7bands. Even handy with PEQ with sliding individual bands of those freq levels and their respective sub-levels each. It will be really good to see full info of "now playing" track with bigger font UI and rich colors.

Except that Calyx M will not be offering EQs because Calyx claims that EQing is just going to degrade the audio SQ. So we will not be having EQ feature in M.

The Calyx M is sounding better and better.

The darker and closer to black everything is on the screen,  the better battery life will be.

So, for non-Koreans living outside Korea, over 40, with less than perfect vision, who do not like to EQ.....

 

Priceless!

No not priceless, $850 preorder or $999 retail. If no price they no make monies.

For $650, I'd definitely early adopt.  But for $800+, no way Jose.  Sorry to say, that Calyx is too just too new to the DAP market and unproven for me to spend that much on an unknown.

I love my Korean BBQ and kimchi. Lots of good food over here though.

 

I don't see how the screen could possibly be construed as a negative. It's the foundation of the M:use interface. Just proof that it is possible to complain about anything.

I dont see any other manufacturers offering any preorder discount at all...its normal that local customers could buy the products a bit cheaper than overseas customers. I am just feeling a bit sore that there is no digital out in this device :-(
I would take Thai food over Korean food any day...imho

If I wanted to use a buggy and less intuitive button pressing interface, I'd just stick with my HM-901 then, haha.

 

But who knows?  Maybe iBasso will surprise us.

What sort of bug are u facing with HM-901?
I use it everyday and the UI doesnt bother me at all.

Oh, let's see.

 

Cuts off a part of the beginning of every track.

 

Sound tick noise in Gapless during track play. (at least we pretty much have Gapless finally)

 

Very slow interface and boot up time.

 

Also, a soft "tick tick tick tick" noise in the left channel with some IEM's.  But that might just be an issue with mine.
