I have no experience with ATH series headphones.  You could read the reviews here on Head-fi under the head gear tab.  FYI, the referbs come with a 1 year warranty just like new ones.

I've been using my X1 for a couple of months, and I've noticed there is something special about the SQ of the DAC in this Unit. Maybe the masses have over looked this DAC because of the low cost price. But it has some very high quality deep digging resolution, that I've not heard in any of my past Sony's or Ipod's. Very impressed with the High SQ of the X1.

 

I believe the PCM5142 is a gem in the ruff.

Yes, it sounds excellent from the LO.  I use mine that way, through a Topping NX1 amp.  Sounds amazing IMO.

I have the M40x for approx 3-4 months and I can say that I'm completely satisfied with the quality it give for $100 gear. The detail and clarity is superb with intimate soundstage.. Will appreciate wider like the one in Beyer 770, but that's more than twice the price. Isolation is great and more than enough for daily commute by train. Comfort out of the box is bad, but you can use a thick book to ment that. It's my 3rd most used can with 1st my Sony MA100, and 2nd my Grado SR60e. With its foldable structure and detachable cable, I think its a perfect portable over the ear closed can for the price.
