Possibly. This paired with an amp like the Glacier would be a killer!

I used to have such a stack and toss this stack out the window, there is no doubt that this player will make your stack pale in comparison, plus why do you want to carry a bridge when you can walk on it. biggrin.gif

Seriously though if you're ok with the DX50 and that the volume spike is fixed, you can go back to HO and it isn't bad in fact I found the upper and highs becoming more forward on the HO. That means you'll be able to drop the amp.

As @jamato8 described, the amp is absolutely not required when using your iems with the DX90 and being portable so this is exactly what I was waiting for and with a very good amp section with a double Sabre dacs is like the ak240 on steroid. Which I hope someone will gauge the two to see who's the clear winner. I have the impression that iRiver has some serious competition sound wise at an affordable price coming their way. It won't have its frills but sure enough the sound should put it in a different league. I can't wait for @Jamato8 comparison to the HM-901.

I would like to know what would be the better buy the HM_802 or this, the DX90? One of these will be my next DAP, I will include the X7 as well.

There is a heafi'er by the name of kiats that has all Ibasso DAPs and the higher end Hifimans as well, so one this is released I will be asking him/her. Maybe somebody else has way to much money and will have all of these as well.

.

The X7 is definitively going to be a fierce competitor but I would place it more along the lines of Calyx M and AK240 competitors with full size OLED displays. The X7 is still a very fluid concept, to my knowledge it does not have yet a final internal layout and FiiO mentioned that its implementation might be more towards 4th quarter 2014 and possibly Q1 2015.

I will be surprised if the X7 appears before Q3 2015, but whenever it appears, I will be interested in it, for the simple reason that James is one of the few company owners who truly listens to what customers desire in an audiophile DAP.

 

X3 was first step, X5 is a stepping-stone to their masterpiece (and a very good stepping-stone, by the looks of it). Fiio are showing a lot of promise. Still secretly wish they would merge with iBasso to take on the audiophile DAP world :biggrin:

Its a never ending hobby, every time you think you have the "one" here comes another. On another note, Ibasso sent me like a recovery FW the other day so I pretty much wiped my DX50 reloaded it with the new FW and so far no issues. So if anyone bricks there's this might help.
