Someone should call Sorensiim, I think he is too much into Google I/O and missing the specs in here 

 
Competition between FiiO X5 and DX50 will be nice I believe.

Oh crap. Spoke too soon. Missed the "micro" in front of SD card. So about 70gb after the internal storage using a 64gb card.

People have some faith in here about technology and bigger capacity microsd cards. They believe high capacities are 'coming soon'.

Yup. Spoils the form factor tho. Was hoping for standard SD card slots internally for price and capacity. I guess it would be too big to use internally and retain the footprint and power profile.

I got some of the following info on the DX50:
 
It supports 24/192
Line out and a direct coax out
SDXC and SDHC Micro SD cards up to 2TB
Less than .5 output impedance
8gb internal flash memory
User exchangeable battery
64mm wide, 26mm high and 100mm long.
 
Very interesting specs.
Just waiting for the DAC chip type and price then.

Wolfson 8740.
 
It's more likely than not out of the running for me then.
 
Wolfson tends to have slightly warmish signature that accencuates the mid bass.
Might have to sell my AK100 & Vorzuge Pure for a DX100 then.
 
Pity.

That's what the x3 is going to have right?
X3?  The Wolfson is a very popular dac now. It resolves well and besides the Wolson 8741 and 42, is one of the top dacs.

It is what makes the world go round, so to speak. Some prefer the organic sound of the Wolfson dac and some prefer the more neutral Sabre dac. I think they both do a good job and enjoy both. The Sabre dac, if it had been placed in.  the DX50, would obviously drive the price up and the run time down as it takes more current to run it correctly. The 8740 is a fairly inexpensive dac in quantity, runs well on lower current. Also, there is no way to know the sound yet, since we haven't heard the DX50 and do not know what is being used for the amp section, which has a lot to do with everything.

You are of course entirely right to say that. Choices are what complicates things.
 
Personally, I feel that's a pity coz I like the neutral signature of Sabre chips.
Having said that, I eventually plumped for my current AK100 & Vorzuge amp coz I managed to get good prices for both.
But for pure sound quality, DX100 is still my choice for the current best DAP in the market.
