mk2 > DX50 imo
whether the gap is worth the price is a diff story

Mine is shipping earlier than than, I get it on March 11th.
Sorry to deviate from the original topic, but wouldn't that mean that the amp is only giving more power, and by default, the DX50 doesn't need an amplifier?
To bring my off-topic back to the thread, i'm still considering if the DX90 would be worth it, already owning the DX50...
Ah i see, so you're basically compensating the signature with the "neutral" amp. I get it now.
Tech wise, it is an upgrade, and despite the fact that i like the ES9018 sound, i don't really think the DX90 would count as an upgrade for me at least, since most of my usage of the DX50 is in public transport, which is noisy as hell. I'm still going to try it out though... but i might not jump the gun on the preorder just yet.
