Why don't we just talk about how to catch the DHL man without missing him?

Did you see the season finale of Walking Dead recently? Just construct a elaborate maze/trap and make him go where you want! It's the only solution!

I like where you're going with this! Haha. I'm going to call in sick on Monday and literally leave the front door ajar on Monday with a giant note on the front that says: "DHL I'm home! Do not leave!"

Maybe this means I'll have to buy the Universal Roxanne? :evil: (I have no choice right?)

 

Which portable cans are you planning to use DX90 with? Most portable cans are also designed to be efficient which does not require much power either.

It's nice to have a nice CIEM around.  :D  I prefer iems because of the isolation, and I feel like I can hear more details.  I'm actually looking for a DAP has the most transparency and details since I have my Hidition NT-6 coming in which supposedly is details and clarity monster.  It's fun to test out how good the sources are with the most transparent phones.

 

So power is not an issue for me, it's the accuracy, details, and clarity.  AK120 and 240 were so detailed and clear sounding with the UERM demo.

I sprung for one of these today - they confirmed stock so it could ship anytime. My new raft of customs and universal/custom 1964 V8 has pushed me in the direction of upgrading my source. I was on the fence about getting a JDS C5D and using it with my iPod Classic, but I really want an option that isn't a stack - I don't have any headphones per se, just an assortment of Multi-BA IEMs - so hopefully the DX90 will serve the purpose of letting these high end cans shine. Then I can go about upgrading my music from Apple Lossless to other Hi-Rez formats - I have just been so attached to the Apple ecosystem, it has been like pulling teeth to get me to try another manufacturer's DAP.

Isn't Apple codec AAC or MP4?  I heard AAC is more compact than mp3.  Is it a pain to convert it for non-Apple players?  I personally prefer non-Apple players because of the drag and drop, makes my like much easier.  :D

Chips used wise the DX90 uses a 250mA buffer while the X5 uses 75mA.

Doesn't some modern player that are non-Apple support ALAC?  If these are audiohiple players, they should support ALAC.  It's a shame if DX90 doesn't.

Dx90 does, I have some alac albums from my apple days... They play just fine.
