    My unit lasts about 6hrs using tidal.
    *2.78b fw
    *no wifi/airplane mod
    *offline tidal ofc
    *5 min screentime total
    *low gain | mid volume
    Is this normal?

    Just to share my reasons fot getting DX200 above other DAPS.

    - "reference" sound because I do not want colored or modified or enhanced sound. I want to hear what the artist intends the audience to hear.

    - USB C... because USB C from my years of usage is prone to damage and slow speed for this age 2017.

    - large screen for easy GUI sighting

    - for the price it competes equal if not above TOTL known DAPs (this us subjective)... Considering DX200 price you get more.

    - incredible Paul and support attending

    - android interface which is important for me to insfall Spotify to discover other bands and music.

    The only con I have is a single expandable card. But hey I can live with it. Hopefully next AMP release is card expandable if so.

    Hope this helps deciding people and those who doubt their purchase.

    This is coming from a musician and who has been a fan of music for 15 years. This is my first DAP yet I use my TOTL music interfaces which has DACS that most TOTL uses.

    I don't want enhanced. I want them all natural. [​IMG]

    I agree with your post, my friend.
    The DX200 is quite the performer acoustically, and I really enjoy the snappiness of the UI/screen compared to a lot of DAPs that I've listened to or own.  The DX200 embodies a beautiful sound, however is less punchy and detailed in the treble and especially bass areas of the frequency spectrum compared to the QP1R.  The volume knob of the DX200 isn't my favorite since it takes a lot of turns with a finger and a thumb, but wouldn't be as much of a concern if in the future via firmware update volume can be implemented via the screen.
    The X5iii was nice for the price, but I much preferred the DX200 on all levels except for the volume knob of the DX200 and more open Android implementation of the X5iii.

    Actually, to my ears LPG is more like the reference. I find DX200 gives an extra thickness in the body of any song I listen with. Which is similar to the R10 have. LPG on the other hand is flatter. Though, I agree it has more mid bass and a little more sparkle on the top end. 
    But reference is very relative and for me both DAPs is a good reference. As long as they don't give too much emphasis on a single thing. Maybe the perfect reference is somewhat in the middle of the 2

    One says thin the other says thicker. Guess its the iems being used or ones ears?

    I am currently using my DX200 now, and into volume 18 to 40.... 
    From random time like within a minute to 3 minutes, I am hearing a digital click sounding.
    Anyone else can try too on low volume?

    Already stated in the bug list thread, already point out for annoying popping noise between Hires Playback.

    Thanks Artpiggo, I just thought the sound is different from popping noise as it sounds digital click to me. [​IMG] like a metronome digital click.
    If this is a popping noise in high res playback, then sampling or buffer could be an issue.
    (this is the same issue with cracking popping noise in sound interfaces and DAW softwares too when buffering or sampling high res...downsampling is our answer for latency free monitoring, also for eliminating pops and crackling noises).
    I hope not for DX200.
    I hope this is just a bug not specs-wise issue in which downsampling will be the answer. [​IMG]

    Probably both

    I wouldn't say it sounds thick, nor would I say that it sounds thin, far from either in fact. To me, it is crystal clear with the right amount of base(which definitely isn't lacking) - as the music should be... To my ears, through my andro and lcd-x, at least.

    No opinions?

    Tidal users can only answer your questions brother.
    Let's wait for them to chime in.
