What I am interested in is how it matches up to the 901.

Heheh! We'll see, Howdy. I can't say it's in the works right now. Having just picked up a Bryston BHA-1 and looking at a Woo Audio WA-2. smily_headphones1.gif

The 901 with the new FW is warmer (balanced card running balanced) sounding than the DX90. Impact is different but great on both.

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.gif

I might have been a tad optimistic. I feel the same except the take over the world part biggrin.gif

I know from members in here about the merits of that player and by what you are saying the HM-901 seems to be the army knife of the ultimate tunable player, the DX90 is not so comparing both of them in an always shifting sand will be practically impossible so I gather that most comparisons is done with the factory options available for the best options available when purchasing the player. I can live with that, and might I add that the price seems to be substantially less for the DX90 so that's a good thing for one's wallet, not that we won't find something else to spend it on.

I have seen the player and heard it's merits from different threads and it seems to always be the one to beat but as you described it it sounds as if it is a continuous running experiment meaning that if you keep switching the internals then you are almost wasting your time comparing cause it will be different and possible better or worst depending on the upgrade or downgrade depending how you look at it. Once they reach the upgrade capacity and they won't be able to pack a punch any longer on this player then we might be in a better shape to move onto something else and/or better if such a thing exists.

Edit: ok got it so one card is the standard stereo output while the other is balanced, nice design. Are they planning a new model, smaller hopefully?

This player is really surprising me. Often you hear dynamics but the dynamics of the DX90, are kept in place with each instrument or voice. It doesn't blend, it is solid and layered while remaining musical. So many individual sounds in the musical landscape.

Can you give a general mark for the performance of dx90 with comparison to dx50, x5, dx100 and hm901?
