    LOL indeed! Same here.

    Now to start using the DX150 as my work commuting and work player and the DX200 for home. After a couple of hundred hours of burn-in I'll review the DX150 and compare the two.

    The question is to put the AMP4s in the DX200 or the DX150...?

    Life is good.

    That’s a nice problem to have, I use a DX90 for work as it sits in my back pocket all day and is built like a little tank. Still want the 150 though, wouldn’t be suitable for me at work though. This hobby just never lets up :dt880smile:

    I've been using my DX80 with my IT04's for work and it sounds great (also built like a tank with two microSD slots), but it's time to upgrade the work player lol.

    Burn in DX150 with AMP6 and AMP4S with DX200 in parallel :wink: I assume you all set with AMP4S, bro? :wink:

    Then compare between DX200/amp4s with EE Legend X and DX150/amp6 with Phantom? :ksc75smile::ksc75smile:

    Lol I bet dx150 with amp6 will sound better with either of the EE models. Hahah. EE iems tends to sound better with a warmer and smaller soundstage. I tried phantom on DX200 amp4s and was underwhelmed. Then I switch to my trusty old dx90, I was totally surprised lol... it’s so so much richer sounding with a warm source.

    First impressions of the AMP4s in the DX200...

    Schiit. To my ears, AC/DC never sounded so good. The grittiness of Angus's playing is unreal! The sound seems to be very "balanced" between highs, mids, and lows. I absolutely love the soundstage and with the IT04's it's kicking some serious ass right now.

    The Red Hot Chili Peppers: The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie is awesome! The cowbell sounds like it's directly in front of me and Flea is on my right side! Sick!

    Chopin's Nocturne sounds LIVE. I didn't expect that. At all.

    Skillet: Forsaken insane. Right in your face.

    Yes bro! Thanks for that thing we discussed!

    I have to say that I'm happy with the DX200 and AMP4s.

    I am loving the DX150 with AMP6 as well.

    I noticed the soundstage DX200/amp4s with Spartans is less than with JH Angie II’s one. :smile_phones:
  10. icefalkon
    I've been using the IT04's and my JH Angies and love the soundstage.
  11. ZzmadzZ
    Never tried spartan haha. But phantom and legend x really sounded very very nice on dx90 as compared to dx200

    EVR and Zeus however is fantastic on DX200 +amp4s!!
  12. kubig123
    The more I listen to the amp4s the more I’m convicted that there are some “ingredients” from the dx200CU in it. :ksc75smile:

    Really! What about Vantage and Bravado?
  14. ZzmadzZ
    Vantage was actually very very good too. EVR and Vantage was totally my type of sound hahaha. Vantage is also very mids and vocals centric with a warmish soundstage. Treble dips alittle but it provides the creamy smooth vocals that EE started out with. However it’s a tad too bassy for me thus EVR is still my take.

    However price wise EVR is unbeatable. And it pairs really well with either DX200 with amp2/3 or amp4s and also with my dx90 which I use while commuting since it is small enough to be stuffed into my front pocket!!

    I skipped bravado actually hahahahah.
  15. chaiyuta
    I will find a way to get AMP4S!!
