Yes I think so. Maybe that's only on some batches

Just to let people know (if not already), I read on the official Chinese forum of iBasso, and it appears that the international buyers will get to buy their DX90 before the people in the mainland gets to (that's a few less people to compete with ;) )
What does surprise me is that using the Dx90 at a volume of 240 getting the HE560 pretty loud, they do not distort, meaning the internal amp isn't running out of steam. It is like iBasso has built you a really, really great dac section and a really, really great amp section or you have a stacked unit all in the same place, for once.
With the Fostex TH900 I am back down to around 210, some times higher sometimes lower, depending on the music and the sound is wonderfully open and detailed with very fine layering and imaging. I have mentioned this before but the 90 is able to keep instruments or voices in their place and yet the dynamics roll without any muddiness in the frequency/sound. Nothing smothers other areas of the recording. In using the line out, this maintains, meaning to me that the dac section is superb and that the internal amp section can keep up with it.
To paraphrase, the early bird also gets the bugs
