4. AK100, iPhone 4, Note 3, clip zip rb
3. X3, DX50, AK120
2. ZX1, X5, DX100
1. AK240, HM901

 

It is only personal preference. take it easy, guys..

Same to me. I prefer my X3 over AK100

It is different. There is excellent placement of voices and instruments and layering with the DX90 that catches your attention and then you just enjoy it. It has great right, left and central placement. The Dx50 doesn't have quite the imaging. There is also a transparency to the DX90 that takes it up a notch. I find them both musical, which to me, is rendering the recording as an event rather than just mechanically giving you the notes.

The 901 is very good and has great placement of instruments and a quality sound. The DX100 has beautiful air about it. They are all musical. They are all different just like venues are different. The DX90 has a quality that is quality and enjoy how it portrays the music as music.

I understand what you're saying, the imaging is forming a vivid perception of each sample/instrument. But when you compare DX50 and DX90 side by side do the left/right channels have more width with DX90? Better spread across the stage, Is it more spacious, airy presentation?

I guess it's similar to Re600 and Re400. With Re400 u can feel it more airy and bigger soundstage, but the imaging in Re600 is so far away from Re400 and i think it really better than Re400

jamato will you try to use HE-560 with DX90 ?

It is only personal preference. take it easy, guys..

I would say:

7. IPC, Cowon X7 and Z2
6. Ak100 modded
5. Ak120
4. X5, ZX1 and ARM1
3. Dx100
2. 901 balanced and Tera
1. Hugo (although a bit fatiguing and unforgiving)

I am hoping for a dx90 at least at dx100 level with iems, and for Calyx at 901 level. I exclude 240 with its moronic price.

I owned the AK120 anr found it not to my taste. The X5 sounds better to me. Some will disagree, others agree...most who disagree own the AK120...

Hey Mim,

 

What is ZX1 with ARM1?

 

Will you get DX90 or at least give it a try like you did with X5?

Prediction:

 

AmberOzL will purchase a DX90 (even though it has 1 µSD slot), because it has such a good value/performance ratio in comparison to many other audiophile DAPs. :D

lol :happy_face1: Gotta admit I miss talking/discussing with you. I am still on the fence too honestly but first impressions are awesome. I trust Jamato so it seems like an awesome value, just like X5. I will probably wait and see more then decide. On the other hand I don't want to make a rush purchase.

I had X5 and DX50 and kept the DX50, mind you that could be down to timing.
I got the Ibasso at 1.2.8 and the Fiio at 1.01, but as they stood I just preferred the sound of the DX50.
It will be interesting to see how the X5 develops.
