Just tried the iBasso web site. It's probably a traffic jam. Looks like the USA has awakened.

I've been studying the ZX1 and X5 for weeks, reading every review, have had an X5 order in for over a week and then pressed button on this without knowing anything about iBasso's except one fine review in this thread. If X5 soon despatches I will give my thoughts on both, coming from a hifi world though without much DAP experience. A month ago I heard Fortis Flyer's ZX1 with some Heirs and JH16s and my perception of DAPS changed. Have bought Westone W40s a month ago after a four way listening comparison, but just want a DAP, quickly!

I wasn't as high on the x5 as some and the DX90 is less than $1/2 the others so it was worth a go for me. I hate the Pono shape for a portable. Calyx still looks interesting but there's nothing I actually like better about it functionally. It will come down to sound.
goodvibes, you pretty much described how I feel about those options however I still want to keep the Calyx M option opened, I can't explain it but even though there was some mismanagement as far as PR is concerned, I feel that we might be quite surprised about the sound that will be coming out of it. I have a suspicion that those guys put all they had in designing the player as witnessed by their measures. If that is the case, it will sound amazing but again only time will tell. There should be some impressions coming soon so hopefully this should help us in evaluating its sq.
In my experience, apple chargers don't play nice with android...
Here's a better explanation.
It usually defaults to a 500ma charge unless your using a charge only cable.
