post #2341 of 13841

i do not know ho this device works, all i had thus far is a rockboxed ipod video 240GB , the way i browse is geners> then i have everything sorted by artists. if this is possible with the DX90 its great.

but still i do not know how it reacts to card swapping, does it have to build database like rockboxed ipod? which by the way takes some time to do... or is it instant?

 

P.S highest capacity SD cards in sane price right now is 128GB? the 256 i saw so far were fake/overpriced.

Not the most comfortable (although you get used to them), not the most sexy looking and I haven't found them to be the greatest with classical music, although that might be the other components in the chain (my DAC/ Amp combo needs an upgrade).

 

But, no question, for any sort of popular music, jazz, vocals etc. they are magnificent, and punch way above their price bracket - much like the DX90 will - bringing it neatly back on-topic ;-)

 

Could you elaborate a bit more on "... I haven't found them to be the greatest with classical music ..."?  I only care about SQ and comfort; looks never scare me.  :)

 

 

Thanks.

I was thinking the same thing; as long as I do not have both of them visible at the same time and the same place ......

The best therapy for this is the DX90. wink.gif

But never forget as the listening disease progresses, higher sq players are needed. If you don't buy you might die of envy. biggrin.gif

Did it ever occur to you that our lives might be too short for us to keep answering the same 3 questions 15 times a day? At least use the search function.

Jamato,do you think the DX90 can withstand the Clas+Amp setup?

So I created a schematics comparison of the X5 and DX90 (basic cut and paste).

 

I sort of "get it," but I was wondering if the more educated folks here have any opinions about the different design routes. Is one design inherently better than the other? Just trying to learn, not to cause bashing of a competitor product as I'm a fan of both Fiio and Ibasso.

Just bought DX100, don't know how DX90 would stack up against their flagship model.

post #2351 of 13841

I had a question for the veteran beta pigs. If theoretically, Ibasso starts shipping out DX90s in masse tomorrow, how many days will it take for most people in America to get theirs? What carrier is typically used? DHL?

 

I guess what I'm trying to gauge is what my chances are of enjoying the DX90 by this weekend. I'm hoping for a Saturday delivery and if not Monday or Tuesday.

I think you should take this further and grab the tech specs of each op amp, put those fellows side by side and compare, that will give you a good idea about the different designs. I would suggest you create a new thread so that this one does not get clobbered and still concentrates on the DX90.

Last time I took 3 days for the time they said it was shipped. I got the feeling that we might get it by next week and not this weekend.

The diagrams are not using the same block setup and the Fiio one actually doesn't make sense coming off the last stereo 1612. iBasso shows the separate channels of a single chip as independent blocks and Fiio shows entire chips as blocks. Either is fine but not directly comparable pictures. Fiio improperly has the last 1612 as a single channel out becoming stereo again. 

 

 The DAP's 2 paths are very much the same in practice except for summing in the LPF of the iBasso with only parts selection and voicing being different. There is no material advantage to either unless the new Sabre DAC chip proves to be one.

Joking aside, as far as my diagram reading skills go, I say the Ibasso design looks better. This is like reading two different recipes for cooking chicken - You might be able to get a general idea about what the dish will be like but without actually tasting it, you know nothing.

 

I still think there could be a way to do a balanced lineout from the Ibasso. Might need some trickery along the way like with DIYmods,but it could be possible.

 

EDIT: As Goodvibes just pointed out above my post, the diagrams aren't entirely comparable.

To truly be able to compare you'd have to have the exact schematic of each also remember that one is single and the other is dual so that will also add to the comparison and then each dac performs their conversion using different algorithm so that will also add to the chef mixing pot.

I guess someone is trying to keep us busy while waiting tongue.gif
