what DAP should I buy under 400 or even 300 ? - Page 3

post #31 of 37
Thread Starter 

I should mention that this will be my first DAP and that I have only once listened to a DAP so no matter which one I get I'm pretty sure both will be fun for me. If iI can find the dx90 cheaper I will get that but for now I will be saving up for the x5.

I gave up on the DX90 precisely because I found it too bright and cold for my tastes. It uses a sabre DAC implementation after all, those are known for neutrality and accuracy. I also gave up on the X5 and stuck with the DX50 because the X5 was too big for my amp; shame really as I rather liked how it sounded with my amp too.  It also helps that the X5 is cheaper and has more storage options.

 

EDIT: NVM the Japan edition is 49,800 Yen ($490), just go for the normal $350 version.

You will really enjoy the X5, it is a great DAP too!

I hope so for $350 it better be worth it, unlike my fiio e18 which I regret buying.

Awesome the dx90 just went down to 388$. Now it's within my price range :)
