    I wonder if this will be worth getting if you don't even have a pentaconn connector. I know there are 2.5mm to 4.4mm adapters, but at this point, I would be buying it only for the change in amp sound signature.

    Then again the new HD660S will come with a pentaconn cable, and as far as I'm aware, there are no 4.4mm to 2.5mm adapters (not possible I guess).

    So far my amp usage goes like this:
    • AMP1 - Unused.
    • AMP2 - Car stereo and SE Line Out to SE desktop amp. Smooth sound signature.
    • AMP3 - Additional power due to BAL. Best sound signature. Waiting to try BAL Line Out to desktop amp.
    Also, is AMP5 suppose to be more powerful than AMP3? Or is it just a more powerful AMP2, which will make AMP2 obsolete (unless the sound signature is different)?

    After looking on their page, Sky doesn't list which routers they use.

    The Sennheiser ie800S also comes with a 4.4mm balanced cable.

    It is a setting for your Internet Router usually 2.4GB or 5GB, some of them are dual channel.
    Usually you can log into your router and it will tell you which one you can use or both.

    Or better yet, 2.4 GHz or 5GHz :)

    Thank you for your response.
    I think Amp1 has balanced out as well. Isn't that correct?
    Which one do you prefer, AR M2 or DX200+Amp3?

    It's used in conjunction with USB Pro driver so it can play Hi Rez files at recorded Bit Rates

    At last I got myself very nice closed cans to pair with my DX200: ZMF Eikon! Great sound with DX200 and great isolation. Now I am about to order a replacement cable but not sure which connector I should get. AMP3 is 2.5mm balanced, AMP4 is 4.4mm pentaconn balanced, AMP5 is 3.5mm SE. The latter 2 are still to be announced, so might take a few weeks to lay my hands on them. Eikons are 300 ohm big boys that need to be fed properly.

    So the million dollar question is: Will AMP4/AMP5 bring any improvements over AMP3/AMP2 for the sound? Or is it just the connector type that is different?

    No line out? That's a deal breaker for me.

    I previously had issues with the beginning of each song (approx .5 seconds into the song) stutters when offline files were stored on SD card. Storing offline files on internal DX200 storage resolved the problem. Perhaps the latest version of Tidal has resolved this issue?

    @Lurker0 what does switching the XMOS chip to DSD/ USB DAC mode actually do? You've mentioned that it consumes more battery than "normal" mode which is used for files with sample rate <176khz. I've always thought the USB DAC mode (or USB audio and direct driver) sounded slightly better than Neutron and its generic driver (bit perfect) but I'm probably just making it up. Is there anything about listening in XMOS DSD mode that would change the sound for non-DSD files directly on the DX200 headphone output, such as higher power output or disabling background processes on the DX200 or android?

    I'm too lazy to look back through 600+ pages. Wondering if anyone knows when amp4 will be available. I would love to audition this player, but everything I have now is 4.4mm and I don't want to buy cables or adapter to do so.
