DX90 Hibino version coming July 18. . .
Not sure if this is on anyone`s radar yet :::
I have really been enjoying my dx50 and I had pretty much decided to get the dx90. Then the X5 started looking really good, and that Hidizs AP100, too.
THEN, I stumble into the Portable Audio show in Tokyo today and there, among all the usual suspects, I find the Hibino table. And he`s got two of their own DX90s for listening.... I have their pimped out iBasso D-zero SE tiny DAC/Amp which despite a slight channel imbalance sounds awesome. And I`ve heard lots of good things about their version of the dx100; the r10 I think it is called...
So I am super stoked about their DX90. The guy at the booth told me they`re reworking the soldering (7x the silver content, according to the webpage above) and he made lots of vague references to how they have improved the sound and build quality. I couldn`t quite understand what he said about the actual construction/assembly - he either said it would be made in a special production line, or in a different factory. Either way, the webpage talks about ISO -certified construction.
