Sony NW-ZX1 128 gb vs. iBasso dx90

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have the ibasso and i'm really satisfied. Value for money'wise - its truly a great bargain.

I'm considering purchasing the sony ZX1 but i read it's cpu is kinda weak and will have trouble playing 24bit tracks.

I use a Topping NX1 as an external amp so the power is less important. It seems to me you pay a lot more because of the brand.

Would greatly appreciate any recommendations.

Anyone?

 

I read Currawong's thread: DAP-off: Astell&Kern AK240, HiFiMAN HM-901, Sony ZX-1, FiiO X5, Chord Hugo, but it doesn't compare to the iBasso.

I preferred the DX90 personally. The ZX1 was good but the bass sounded a little bloated to me as compared to the taught DX90. The ZX1 was also a little brittle in the highs, at least that's what I was hearing with my JH13s.

Wow- although the UI difference the value for money of the dx90 is one of the best I've encountered.
