Don't go there Mim:D

 

Honestly though, a blind test would be fantastic between these two.

Just to be clear, I asked them if the OTG will also be available with the USB-DAC functionality and here is their answer:

Hi,
Yes, the DX90 has the OTG function that you can connect a external storage with it. We are also developing the USB-DAC driver. The USB-DAC and OTG can be both co-exist.

So this DX90 is going to be packed with fantastic features. It really sounds the dap to beat at the expected affordable price. A lot of win-win for us.

Yeah when FiiO can use USB DAC and USB OTG, why not iBasso? :happy_face1:

Yes a DX100 can be 'inserted fully' into a jeans pocket, too, but it's not practical to walk with it, as it makes the pocket bulge drastically, and it shakes drastically, too, due to the bulk.

 

Again, please don't anyone think I'm slating the DX100.

 

When I saw the DX50, I was really pleased to see how much thinner it is than the DX100, so the DX90 looks like a viable prospect for people like me who walk around with their DAP in their jeans, as does the Fiio X5.

 

I truly, really suspect that the DX90 and X5 may properly shake-up people's notions of how much performance can be achieved for no more than $500

Score one for the Home Team!  I may finally be able to use my usb input on my Intruder!  Don't need the balanced capability with this.  Thanks for the info musicheaven.

 

Right now all my FLAC are redbook ripped CDs at 16/44.  And that is what the Intruder natively supports.  I am interested in High Res and may pick up a few albums.  But, I may wait to see how the functionality works.

 

Does the DX-90 down res the files to 16/44, or does the Intruder do the manipulation, or is there an incompatibility between the two if I get 24/96 files, or 24/192?  (This is a rhetorical question.  I know no one knows right now.  This is on my test action plan when the DX-90 comes out.  But feel free to speculate all you want.  We are about 600 pages behind the DX-50 thread, so let the speculations commence.)

I don't see how you can connect DX90 to the intruder's USB input. DX90 will act as a USB DAC. Same function as what the intruder will do with it's USB input.

 

As far as I know you can only connect the intruder to DX90 as an external amp.

The DX90 will be able to work as a USB DAC with your computer - it will not be able to support USB audio output to the DAC in your Intruder. And judging by the spec sheets, that's a good thing, as the dual DACs in the DX90 should trump the single lesser chip in the Intruder.

OK, I've come to a decision - I want both a DX90 and an X5 and I want them NOW, dammit!!  :biggrin:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OK, you can all continue with the discussion, now....  :tongue_smile:

Not just that but an inboard DAC doesn't even need to be quite as good to beat an outboard one if al your ducks are in a row. You usually lose a little something in the SPdif transfer.

Thread Starter 

With the DX90 using two Sabre dacs I would use the line out, if needed or desired like into a balanced amp but I have no desire to bypass them. This DAP is going to be fun.

Thanks guys.  My mistake.  I got all excited for a second.  But I'm better now.  Shoot.  Guess I picked the wrong week to give up snorting glue. ;)

No doubt in my mind I am going to line up when this little gem will be released. cool.gif
post #553 of 13841
Hopefully, the amp would not hiss with BA unlike the DX50's.
post #554 of 13841
Very on the fence about selling my dx50 and amp for these...

Hiss is an unfortunately thing on the dx50 that rly makes me HAVE to use an amp frown.gif

Dx90 sounds ideal. I'll have one
