Looks like Ibasso is going to beat Calyx to the market. Wondering what impact it will have on Calyx once DX90 is out.

How about less sales? Timing is everything and execution is the optimum thing. If iBasso do it right and there is little or no issues with the player, I am afraid Calyx will loose some sales to iBasso and they will be charging less than the Calyx M to begin with, so that will eat up in their future sale profits as well. This is just me running my IMHO sales marketing scenario, maybe it won't be like that and people will wait an additional month for the Calyx M.

Regardless it is becoming a really competitive market... And i feel its not so niche anymore given the lifestyle changes...Good quaility (sofware/hardware/service) and "reasonable" pricing will win and stay...... Its so easy to either spend a bit more to get the Calyx or save a few bucks to get the x5...only head fi regulars buy them all...hehe

Half the price, double the dacs, yay! :happy_face1: (DX90 vs M).

Inversely proportional ratios, you could say the numbers stack up quite nicely in favor of the DX90. beerchug.gif

If the DX90 is better than what the DX50 is sounding right now, and I could only guess it will be, I won't be able to go to sleep. lol

the level of DX50 with FW 1.28 is amazing - i can't imagine huge improvements of the dac section with DX90.

Maybe onother sound signature with the sabre chips and a better amp section.

DX50 will also be in future the inhouse competitor for DX90 :beyersmile:

I honestly don't know why I'm following this thread (or the X5 one for that matter).. the DX50 that  I have is outstanding and I really have doubts about either of these new players significantly out-stripping it. So why aren't I happy to just stick with the DX50? What is it about Head-Fi that makes me even consider upgrading when I clearly don't need to??!!

Well, for one, more storage on the device.

 

But you are right, the "audio" grass is always greener on the other side of the  "audio" fence.

And there is the every popular new toy symptom.

Well I'm pretty sure many people are expecting the DX90 to better the DX50 in every area, and I'm sure it will too. The DX50 was just testing the portable DAP waters for iBassso, the DX90 is ibasso going all out I reckon :D

Well you are right about that.. I certainly hope the DX90 is better because the DX50 whilst ok can certainly be bettered, iBasso is a very capable company and may well produce something terrific. I reckon they have been watching the positive comments about Fiio X5 and will want to release a top sounding polished product.

What I can gather from the time they said that they had the DX90 ready for commercialization in beginning of March which strongly suggests that the prototype was ready and they are in the tuning phase, I would be very surprised the chain of events you mentioned went according to your description; the X5 positive comments only started to roll in when they made the announcement. I think there is a well perceived competition between those two firms because they both have the same goals in releasing their future projects. I'd say iBasso at this point is ahead of the game as they already have a touch sensitive version of their players and FiiO is gunning for one later this or next year. But your assessment about the last point is spot on.
