Hi everyone,


Thought i should start a thread where everone who owns a x5 and the soon to be released dx90 could post their comparisons for people like me who are looking at these two daps for their next purchase...


Dx90 is expected to be releases 15th-20th march


Which do you think will be better terms of sound quality?...

I think you shouldn't make this thread until both players are released, and give it a few months for firmware update. Current votes are literally invalid.

Same boat here... While I've heard (read) that the 846 and the X5 is a combination made in heaven, I kind of lean more towards the dx90.

I played around with the x5 and didn't like the ui, the buttons, the wheel was super sensitive, and you cant simply play/pause/skip when the screen is off or when you're not in the "now playing" screen. 

After playing around with the X5 my first thought was "4get it, just buy an ipod" lol...

But then I saw the DX90 thread and my addiction cranked up again 

Soundwise I didn't had any of my music to listen to. But I guess they're both very good.

I am sure that both players will sound great.  It will just come down to which firmware is less buggy and which UI you prefer.  Neither DAP from these companies is going to sound like crap.  Even the $30 Clip sounds awesome.  The firmware is the issue though and it can be fixed later on.  Hurrying out a product is what caused a lot of problems for Ibasso with the DX50.  It is better to wait it out and make sure the bugs are fixed and determine which interface you prefer.

Well..can't wait someone reviewing both..whichever sounds better I'll take it..since i don't really care about UI and other things beside the SQ
