How many of you thought when you first heard the DX90 it was going to look different then the DX50?
On another line of thoughts, how many of you think that when you change a device model number you expect a different body?
Lol, just some good fun. There something special about not changing the case, it's call familiarity.
Aa a DX50 owner, when I pay double on a DAP, I expect more storage capacity, longer battery, and better screen. if iBasso can give me all these with the same chassic, I don't mind that, it is pissible but unlikely in tge case of DX90.
When fhe DAC got a significant upgrade, hi-res PCM and DSD become the focus and 64GB + 8GB become a bottleneck on utilization.
With the upgraded in DAC and CPU embedded, I assume the battery will drain faster, so a bigger battery is just natural IMO. I know the battery is replaceable, but so are the battery of most mobile phone, if mobile phine industries goes for bigger battery when they use higher power CPU, when other DAP developers are installing bigger battery, I can't why we should excuse iBasso in this round.
Regarding the screen, some of the control icon are really small for touch screen interface, and the small text should be more readable. Check out the IPS screen on X5, it is not much bigger but certainly give me a sense of upgrade. Lets face it, when iBasso opt for rouch screen control route, they should expect user demand mire on the screen naturally as the screen is not only a display but an important frontend of interface.
