To be fair, it does have 64gb onboard memory, unlike, for example, the DX90.

 

 

But there are certainly other shortcomings, I agree.

so its a glorified ipod touch in the end ?

hmmmm, it seems much thicker than the concept

and there are so little information, even battery capacity we don't know

Hmmm... do you think that's a fair appraisal?

 

I think there's vastly more audio technology crammed into the Calyx-m than in an iTouch

When it was originally announced, it was claimed to be 141.5 X 70.8 X 14 mm

 

Now it is claimed to be 134.60 X 69.16 x 14.50

 

so it's only gained 0.5mm thickness! :biggrin:

Please also ask them why they designed the volume control so that people can accidentally damage their hearing and their CIEMs :tongue_smile:

but thats basically it right ? its an ipod touch with more audio capability , it basically have a ho and a usb port, it doesnt even have a line oit and sells for 999, the only hope it got now is to sound extremely good to justify its price, thats just an opinion though

here for you "The slide volume control is not as conventional as you might imagine. This is very special one"

 

of course, until we get hand on, we don't know how special they are

3.3 ohm output impedance !

 

          --> ... NO Thanks !

 

plus, no infos about the DAC chip !  which one ?  one or dual ? 

apparently only 1 Micro-SD Slot ?

if that's the case, we'll need to change the thread title to ...64GB + 64GB INT/EXT storage...
