With shipping it comes out to around $610 or so.  Do you know if they charge tax?  It's definitely a compelling choice between this, the ZX2, and perhaps something like the Cayin N6.

considering the ui and stuffs, l5 pro and the upcoming x7 are more of the competition. n6 for me, punches up a level by its sound and also a new level in ugliness. it has the best treble representation i have ever heard.

Soundstage is great love it, listening to all JS Bach Harpsichord Concertos big soundstage and all the details.

 

Last time i went to the movies i had my ears ring for a day... and went to a rock concert in 2008 with my dad (he forced me to go) i had mye ars ring for 3 days :angry_face:

Ha-ha I seem to like the design! I think it looks pretty awesome and unique. I love how the Carbon Fiber looks in pictures and I'm sure I would like it better in person. Everyone seems to love hownthr N6 sounds and I'm curious how it stacks up to the ZX100.

I don't post very much - but I've been lurking around this thread wondering how the ZX100 compares to my (thick-sounding) ZX2...

 

For those who want to take the plunge, Treoo in Singapore sells it for SGD$699 without the buds. That's a great deal if you intend to use your own IEM/CIEMs. 

 

I'm in no way affiliated to them or anything - just sharing a good price in case anyone's interested :o 

 

Sound-wise, it would seem like the main difference between the two lies in the density of the sound more than anything else.

that density is what makes the zx2 special right? at least i have not heard anything like that. yet to try the hifiman, though. so it is a big difference for me between zx2 and anything else and i am not sure if it is considered a hifi quality that hi-end product has. i would say imaging layering and soundstaging also have quite a big difference.

The Calyx M is thicker and lusher sounding than the zx2. Vocals on the Calyx M is so sweet. Only down side is the battery life and some quirk on the ui. ZX100 on the other hand have more bites on the treble which catches my attention.

i never consider it a candidate because of that battery life, but i can try to have a better understanding of "thick" and "lush". thank you for your suggestion.

For me, all daps out there are great device. Just that it is catered for different people with different sig preference. And also about the synergy with your iem/headphones.

To add to that, it wasn't that long ago that people here waxed lyrical about the ZX-1, then dumped it the moment the ZX-2 arrived. And now the ZX-100. Maybe we don't really know what we really want.

Most of us have new toy syndrome. Newer things are always better. Perhaps this is the best explanation.
