Hi! Can anyone who has the DX90 confirm whether it does gapless playback seamlessly? I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could test the gapless function and let us know! :etysmile:

You do know it's going to be rubbish right? Why do you think all those who have got it go all silent as soon as they receive it?

I'll let you know when mine arrives but since it works fine on DX50 I fully expect it to do so on the DX90 as well (it's essential for me)

Seems to work fine on mine.

I believe the technical medical term is "awesomness coma," where the brain goes into shock from too much awesomness.

+1 for US.

@M-13: Can't believe you're getting them on the same day. I'm jealous! Got tracking info for my DX90, but my X5's not shipping until late next week frown.gif

Yeah I got real lucky. I ordered the X5 a couple of days after I ordered the DX90. Believe it or not. Someone on the X5 thread said HifiMan was about get some in stock so I contacted them and they were like "yup we're getting some X5s tomorrow, look for it on our website."

 

Sure enough 24 hours later it popped up, so I ordered and they sent one out. I think it was sold out super quick. It's not normally a place I go for Fiio products, but I feel lucky because there are people who ordered in February from MP4Nation and other places still waiting.

It has arrived!!!!

 

A few songs in and I must say I'm impressed. I though that it might just be hype when Jamato said how good it was. After hearing it I must say that it is every bit as good as Jamato said, the clarity, detail, soundstage and presentation is simply amazing. Unbelievable how big of a step up this is from the DX50 which is already a splendid player. 

 

The hour and a half I spent sitting, watching the 2 doors (I live on a corner) was worth it lol :)

 

I heard the X5 a week or so ago and to me, these two sound rather similar. For some reason, the DX90 sounds a little warm right now, but I hope that that will die down after a while. From memory these are a bit more detailed and have a slightly larger soundstage but take this with a grain of salt. 

 

I also love the 3.5mm jacks. They feel and look very solid; apparently they are custom made. The screen is very responsive and scanning is very quick. It scanned around 30GB of music in less than 30 seconds. Scrolling is a little odd coming from the DX50 though. 

 

I will report back with some more impressions later when I've had more of a listen.

For those in the UK, just to let you know if you go to their epayments it will show you what DHL and HMRC want you to pay for the privilege even though you haven't received an invoice yet, mine was £20.96, same as for DX50, so paid it already ..... Just bring me the damn thing today!

Not sure how much sleep I'll get tonight. So excited for tomorrow. :D
