And dual Sabre dacs. iRiver just charges way too much. I have to relax a little. I am really looking forward to this. Same size as the DX50 and such power in both a dac and while not as much as the DX100 in output, still plenty for most all applications. Fun, fun.

DX100 owner - might be tempted if it's the same performance for IEMs in a smaller package.

I'm not too worried about power, as long as it has a good strong line-out.  I run a RSA Shadow amp for my IEMS and a Hornet for my HD700's around the house.  But a DAP implementing dual Sabre chips is music to my ears! :ksc75smile::dt880smile:

I am pretty sure it will be.

Nice. Presume the built in storage will only be a poverty 8GB like the 50? I have a 64GB microSD card in any case, but more storage is always welcome.

post #22 of 8258

I think the best news is that it's using the DX50 UI, which means the firmware updates for us DX50 users probably won't be stopping any time soon.

 

Win win for everyone.

8gb. Possibly a different type than the DX50 but 8gb. I don't mind as I prefer to change out my music and internal storage is nice but even on the DX100 I rarely use it.

Turn the oven on boys, lets hope iBasso cook this DAP to 90% done rather than the mess DX50 was release as. My confidence meter is raging through the roof. Sarcasm/

If only we could harvest your moaning, complaining, whining, and sarcasm into a form of energy. We'd be able to generate enough electricity to power a small country.

 

 

On topic: looks to be pretty interesting. Don't think I'll be buying one, but interesting nonetheless.

Spare the small country and send all the energy to iBasso's firmware team, Much better focused there IMO. I'm sorry I bought an IBasso DX50% baked and wasn't happy with it's performance, I'm sorry the UI was buggy as hell and made me want to smash it, I'm sorry I couldn't update the firmware almost everytime without it freezing.

I'm sorry, for having an opinion Hobgobblinpie.
