Shouldn't take that long if you're in Australia.

Or maybe I'm just wishful thinking, mine has to cross the pacific and travel from Vancouver to Toronto.

I'm hoping for some updated tracking info soon.

The low res intruder is amazing inspite of its lower resolution.

I've been researching some high end diy DACs, not sure which one I'll buy though.

Hoping the dx90 is good enough to leave everything else at home, but, I think I'll end up stacking it with my intruder. Loving the balanced output.
Just re-terminated my Roxanne cable and it's noticeably better.

Mine to, I wonder if it's actually still there or if they just haven't updated it. I was hoping for early next week here in the states, but that seems unlikely now

Don't be so sure, using the transit time estimator... 2 days to Canada

I expect that they've been packing them and electronically been notifying the shippers during the weekend and they wil then get picked up during today Monday. Denmark shuts down for 6 days fir Easter Wednesday afternoon so I don 't expect mine to arrive until some time next week

I can compare the DX90 DAC section to my Concero. Well.. the audio memory of the Concero I had for nearly a year as my only dedicated DAC. It's been compared favorably to the X-Sabre, DA8, Anedio D2, etc, etc,. Not quite at that level, but pretty darn close according to people who have sat down to A/B.

 

The Concero is what got me addicted to the Sabre sound, so I'm looking forward to the DX90 a lot. I'm hoping it's been implemented well, lawd knows the DAC chips themselves are awesome.

 

The other obvious comparison will be against the X5. You guys will get a lot of impressions and revised impressions of that match up.:D

X5 is very good, but I prefer DX90's tuning over that of X5 personally.

Congrats man!

 

That'll be my guess as well, but I'm going to be open-minded until I hear them both.

Do these ibasso daps have breakpoint memory, so if you're playing an audio book will it save the place if you go off and play music? Never had my dx50 long enough to check. I'm guessing not
post #2891 of 13841
If I remember correctly, the DX50 remembers the position inside a track when paused before turned off.

Yea can't really go wrong with either. The choice imo would depend more on preference of transparency (dx90) or smoothness (x5), whether you need higher power of the fiio for hard to drive cans, and the preference on UI/controls/appearance. I like these two DAPs' sound over any other DAPs except my hm901/ak240.

How much time do I have left till the first batch is finished? I can't decide

I think he firs batch may be a few thousand if it's not sold out by now.

Interesting. I figured the DX90 would actually play in the 901/240 level. So you think it's a step below?
