just got mine an hour ago.
I have dx50, dx100 and now dx90
My first impression on dx90 is that it defo worths its price (I got it with ~370usd). It sounds more like dx100 thanks to the dual 9018 dac

enjoy it first, then give us more detail when you have time :)

I think iBasso made a wise choice to use the same enclosure/firmware from DX50 with some upgrades/enhancement.  I feel a lot less like a beta pig than when I got my DX50 :)

 

I had tried the below and haven't had any issue thus far (ok now I think I jinxed myself):

- db scanning (*) (seems about 25% faster than DX50)

- album arts (*)

- 24 bit FLACS of all rates (48/88.2/96/176.4/192)

- gapless

- auto power off

- basically no hiss/noise on all gain settings

- coxial output to external DAC

- running the battery all the way down and power up/recharge

 

*the SD card and files were working fine on my DX50 and AK240

 

Things that I tried and didn't work

- USB DAC (I believe will only be supported when the driver is available)

 

Non-sound things I like over DX50:

- new/better HO/LO/coxial jacks

- more stable touch screen response (not too sensitive nor laggy) and faster UI response

- minimum "pop" when turning on even with my most sensitive TG334 on high gain

 

Things that I wish they can add over DX50:

- time displayed on the top of the screen

- auto stop playback when HO jack is unplugged

Wow it's a lot faster this time.  Local dealers in HK didn't get DX50 like after 4 or 6 weeks, this time the difference is just 5 days... should have opt for the HKD2900 offer than paying USD419 @ibasso!

 

I'm getting more and more impressed as I pair it with my different IEMs... JH13FP, TG334, 1PLUS2, ASG2, RE600, W4R, ER4S... all paired very good with DX90.  I'm having a hard time deciding on which one I'm bringing with me for my trip to Taipei tomorrow!  (well maybe W4R is out as it didn't bring anything unique that TG334 can't do)

Congrats to new owners, jealous but happy for you at the same time. beerchug.gif

Mine is still in transit, not even sure if I'll have it this week. First time iBasso is late delivering the player, it was a lot faster the last time. frown.gif

Maybe DHL has it stuck somewhere? DHL held mine for a day with no reason.

:bigsmile_face: Yes, it arrived in the Netherlands also, just received it at the DHL depot. But :angry_face: sadly for the rest of this day I'm at my work, without headphone and music. So if anybody is near Schiphol-Airport with a decent headphone and some music, you're more than welcome to come to my office!!
