Arriving soon, the new DX120. Designed around the AK4495 as a player with very high quality fidelity.

Balanced: 2.5 TRRS
Single Ended: 3.5 TRS
Line out: 3.5 TRS

2 micro SD card slots.

DX120 Specifications:

2.5mm Balanced
Output Voltage:3.6Vrms
Frequency Response:10Hz-45kHz+/-1dB
THD+N: 0.00028%,-111dB (without load)
0.00032%,-110dB(32Ω@2.4Vrms)
DNR:117dB
S/N:117dB
Crosstalk:-116dB

3.5mm Single Ended
Output Voltage:1.8Vrms
Frequency Response:10Hz-45kHz+/-1dB
THD+N: 0.00042%,-107dB (without load)
0.00056%,-105dB(32Ω@1.2Vrms)
DNR:115dB
S/N:115dB
Crosstalk:-115dB

16 hours of play time with standard files. This will vary depending upon the load, volume and resolution being played.

The DX120 development focused on obtaining the most out of the AK4495 DAC chip to deliver high fidelity at an extremely good price. The specifications for the AK4495 show a THD+N of 105dB. In real practice obtaining this THD+N can be very difficult. However our engineers, through hard work, using intelligent design and research, have reached a THD+N of -111dB. This surpasses the -105dB of the AK data sheet by 6dB! A mission impossible has been made possible. And you will enjoy the rewards of a high performance digital audio player.

Can you use the amp modules from the DX200? I have switched all my cables to 4.4mm, but I would really like two sd slots in this version.

What processor does this unit use (still the old rockchip), and will Lurker Roms be allowed?

Is LDAC capability included, or standard aptX/sbc?

power output ?

if you go by a very rough ideal condition estimation of P = V^2/R (from P = V * I), 3.6V @ 32ohm will be about 400mW in BAL

There are no amp modules, it's a single piece unibody $299 DAP, running native mango, and I don't see any mentioning of bluetooth. This is a pure audio playback DAP with two micro-SD slots for max storage capacity. iBasso just posted a video of it: https://www.facebook.com/iBassoAudio/videos/849012615489059/
