Agreed, iBasso has never steered me wrong with the DX100 and DX50, quite a bargain IMO compared to a lot of other gear I've purchased on head fi.  I will be in the 1st batch of orders for sure granted it doesn't sell out instantly.

I'm with Mim on this to prefer the 901's type of ugly over X5's type of ugly... I would be rocking an X5 had it not been the 4 silver buttons resembling a big X around the wheel.  These buttons just totally ruin the look of it.  I would spray it black if ever I pick up one as it does sound better than the DX50 or AK100/120 imho.  Still MUCH prefer the DX50 styling over X3, X5, Hifimans or any of these Chinese DAPs

I'm hoping DX90 would be on par with the X5 on sound.  Firmware wise I really haven't had much issue even from Day 1 of the DX50 (guess I'm well trained by the early AK100 and HM901 issues).  I want the DX90 as a lower cost/longer battery life alternative for long haul trips where I don't need to baby the DAP against drop/lost/theft etc and with enough juice for long flight/transits.  Chart? Chart:

@kkcc

You can sell your AK240 after DX90 gets released. :D good advice from me.... :beerchug:

still have money left for an X5 for you to paint it in different color and some FOTM/TOTL CIEM, too

I see you have the X5 and 3rd anniv.   In terms of just SQ, how do you hear the two?   Is the 3rd brighter?   Warmer?  I've heard X5 is smoother than the Hsound but just as detailed and has excellent separation.  

( By the way, do you fish for salmon up there (from here its up.LOL.)  I used to live in God's country(Ptld.,OR) but you're in the ultimate country, esp if the environmentalists have their way!!)

Use the silicon case and get a 4400mA battery. I think the DX90 will be in a category of its own.

The 128gb micro SD Sandisk was released on Amazon and Best Buy. Now I get a notice that they won't ship until April 1. Seems they have not been truthful about the true release.

Yes, highly recommend the silicon case. Been using it on the DX50 and it works really well with the large buttons too. Look classy and much more practical than the easily scratched AK120 leather case. Good thing that DX90 will share same casing/accessories I can just reuse mine. smily_headphones1.gif

Lol. I like the (price / model number) comparison.

Maybe AK should have made the model the ak2400! THe SQ would be 10 times better and the price/model # would only be 1!

Did you get an email? I ordered yesterday from amazon, and have not received any delay emails. 

 

Either way I would probably survive a couple of weeks without one. It would just be nice to have all my music on type of storage over having internal and external storage.
