Now there's an idea. I wonder when they will come out with a 2.5 inch 1TB SSD.

Click the blue text in my previous reply.

Damn I didn't realize they had 1TB SSDs out already. Thanks!

And that is a nice looking cost efficient enclosure.

If only the SSD drive was 'cost efficient', too! LOL

 

 

Actually, I don't know for a fact that that rig would function via OTG with the DX90, but there's a fair chance that it might, considering that the current draw should be substantially less than a conventional spindle-based electromechanical HDD.

 

I wonder who will be the first Head-fier to splash the cash and find out for us all?!

I notice that using the reader for the USB/OTG even in a micro card cuts into the run time so I can't imagine what a SSD would do, even if it would run and that it would consume less energy than a conventional HD, spinning platter. 

 

I do like the solid state drives though. I have it in my MacBook Pro and it is so much faster than the spinning platter.

DX90 has replaceable Samsung battery...  :evil:

So true, an added convenience. I have 3 extra batteries though I don't often use them but they are there when needed and are fantastic for travel. I have an ultra light recharger for the batteries that works on either the battery for that or for my Samsung S4, so there you go. :^)

Who puts their entire music collection on their DAPs? No wonder capacity is such a large issue for some. I would need ton of USB HDs to fit my entire music collection...

You better get an external power driven hard drive else you won't be able to play music for very long. I tried some of my lowest power hungry USB driven HDD and the Dx50 doesn't have enough juice to sustain their power and provide hours of music playback. My best setup are external powered HDDs with large capacity internal drives, the only last annoying thing about it is the initial scan while going on the OTG, other than that it's running smoothly.

The Samsung SSD drive sucks a good 3.44 Watts active, if you just power the drive with the samsung battery, you are talking about less than 3 hours run and that assumes you don't power anything else. The unfortunate thing is you can't charge and OTG at the same time so best to use the least amount of power to keep it going.

Tbh I would rather want to have dac functionality than OTG, that's just me.

I just got some new cable from Whiplash. A micro gold plated silver, ultra fine stranded. Now more than ever anxious for the DX90. This cable is the best I have ever heard, even better than my own (frustrating as it has always been my benchmark against anything).

Well, me for one.  It's nice to have everything along while traveling in case the mood for a certain tune strikes.

Tons now that's a lot of CDs that you must have ripped. Even my 2000 plus cd collection doesn't need tons of USB Hdd's after being ripped into flacs.

I have access to over 2 TB of music. so much, so little time. So many choices, so many voices, so much fun, no end in sight.

Here is my best OTG setup, a drive that is small and powerful an esata USB 2.0 drive which can take any size laptop drives and power it up on its own, you get 3gbps throughput on an esata input/output and the USB 2.0 compatible on the DX50. This little setup will feed the DX50 and DX90 when it comes out.
