the battery is great, it's nuclear powered but it can get messy if it leaks. :eek:

It plays videos, too, but the problem is it's Paper-View... :rolleyes:

Having checked out its dimensions I think it's not bad at all but the 230 g might make it feel heavy. I guess next I should add 230 g of metal in there. :D

very nice alpha version :wink_face:.

ibasso´s size is rather convenient - perhaps we should wait for the dx95 - same dimensions,  with hires full screen display and the side buttons ,,, and more memory

j/k :biggrin:

no use for a digital out: no other dac in sight - especially when you are on the way -

to convert the m´s digital data  with better quality (according to calyx). :blink:

 

a digital in would be more helpful - at least for x3 users.

My two main functions are covered; HO and DAC, LO would have been nice but not a deal breaker. Digital in/out no need .

If you take the time to read through this thread, you'll understand why some of us have wished for a D-O on the Calyx-M, but that's now a redundant conversation, since it is (AFAIK) being released without.

 

I'm struggling to understand why on earth an X3 user would need a D-I on the Calyx-M, though :confused:

post #2155 of 4349

in this case the digital out of the x3 could be send to the calyx-m (digital in) and would be converted there in better sound quality.

post #2156 of 4349

But why would you even want to use a budget DAP like the X3 with a TOTL DAP like the Calyx-M? :confused:

 

Just load-up the Calyx-M with a couple of memory cards and you're good-to-go.

post #2157 of 4349

this ironically meant scenario was intended to be for x3 owners, who would hopefully had got the calyx-m and want to keep/use their small x3 furthermore.

I failed to see the sense on this scenario. Why not just take the SD card from X3 and plug it in on M. Just dump the X3 you don't need that anymore, you don't want to stack devices if there is no benefit at all. (Unless you want a solid brick to defend yourself when you get mugged on the streets :tongue_smile:) In this case I don't think there is any.

post #2159 of 4349

Nods.  I'll be dumping my AK100 Mk2.  Can't think of a reason I'd keep an X3?

post #2160 of 4349

I just want to see a DX90 vs Calyx M comparison, when two daps use the same DAC there is no where to hide in a comparison! especially if one of those daps is over twice the price of the other :/  I want the Calyx M to be a sucess so I can take advantage of its sexy UI and big screen ease!
