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!

my options are

 

1- fiio x5

2- isbasso dx90

3- calyx

4- pono player

 

very confused which to buy

 

all i know is I like warm, laid back, dark sound

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.

Yeah you are right, it is a traffic jam. I got my order in though. :)

Seems to only have been a temporary issue, ibasso.com is back up and running fine now.

It was a slow process but I got my order in!  Can't wait to hear it.

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.

ipad charger output voltage is 5.1V, can I use it with DX90 battery?

post #2140 of 13841
Wouldn't iBasso not take the order if they didn't have stock.
Isn't that how it worked with the dx50?

I use my iPad charger all the time with those batteries and it is fast, a 10W charger is really nice.

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.

I use a Samsung charger for the Galaxy S4. Charges fast, you can get them cheap on Amazon and they come with a nice long detachable USB cable.

Yes, mine did.
