Touch Dap with warm sound signature

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I'm searching for a Dap with warm sound signature but also with touch and stable UI.

 

My experience until now:

 

Ipod touch 4g: good impact and detail but with soundstage too compressed; also little too bright for me.

Samsung s3: less detail and sometimes with grain treble, but with soundstage much wider than ipod

Fiio X3: beatifull warm sound signature, but no touch and SQ not so much higher than Ipod and S3

 

Thank you

You might want to look at cowon players. From what i know, most have touchscreens and their UI is somewhat stable.

I prefer it, but these are my criteria in order of importance:

- warm sound signature

- UI stable

- Touchscreen

 

Ipod classic 5.5 satisfies the first two and it would also be quite, but I don't like hard disk in a world with flash drive and ssd disk

You can modify iPod 5.5 with SSD or CF-card.

 

Also Teclast T51 should suit you, but you can find them only old and use, Sony NWZ-Z1000 and nef F880, ZX1 should be very good. 
Cowons has synthetical sound.

Never though a Teclast T51 was warm sounding. Sony probably fit the OPs criteria, quite expensive though.

Buy a cowon x9. I'm selling one mint if you look in the for sale section wink.gif

my budget is under 300...new or used, so ZX1 is too expensive for me

 

I read for Cowon problem about UI stable;

 

about F880 I read dissenting opinions: some listen to it as cold, other warm

 

with Apple product I test only ipod 4g: the only true big issue is bidimensional sound, there is separation between instruments, but no air between them: except ipod 5.5, there are other IOS products with a decent soundstage? iphone 4s?
