    Just iike my IEM Score Chart, I decided to share a DAP scoring list to give Head Fi'ers a basic comparison of DAPs

    There will surely be disagreements, but I would like you to know that I have been working on this for some time. I also took advices from my local / foreign fellow audiophiles, who have experience and knowledge about the these DAPs here.

    The list can be expanded and edited over time.

    Enjoy your music.

    I like this idea, would be good to see a few people offering up similar scores on the same daps and some of the ones missing.

    I would also suggest a Storage column and probably a Value For Money one..

    May I inquire/suggest, could you also color label the warm/cold daps? Figured it might help those looking for pairing possibilities.

    Good work btw.

    Extremely useful, even if I don't agree 100% on some the scoring, please continue to update it!
  6. Virtu Fortuna
    Thank you. You are always welcome to make comments on my scores. Cheers.

    What do the two scores in the first column, separated by a comma represent?
  8. taffy2207
    It's an average score of all the other scores for the particular DAP e.g. 9.13 etc

    You got JH Layla as #1 in the iem char?! That's enough for me, don't need to see anymore.

    Everyone have their own opinion. You don't have to agree on anything.

    Have u tried ZX300? I know it's a midfi DAP but Imo, the balanced output on it sounds like WM1A Single Ended.

    Pretty impressive for almost half the price of WM1A. Wonder how it'll fare in this chart

    And thanks for chart! It'll be useful as a reference when i plan to upgrade sometime in the future
