    Looks promising. Any idea when will it be released?

    Get a room you two! Jeez!

    At the risk of going off topic, will this DAP have 2 MicroSD slots? Any plans for ReplayGain? Power output?

    Interest piqued due to colour selection. If the price is right I may even introduce family and friends to the wonders of a dedicated DAP this Christmas!

    It would be comparable in terms of overall performance and snapiness with the HiBy offers?

    Really interested in know the specs (hopefully it comes with a Snapdragon chipset and decent amount of RAM), as the screen and the rest of the specs looks promising.

    Lame Color selection, No Love for Purple... sad times...

    New post on FB today. Thought: Why does FB get iBasso love before we here @ Head-Fi?

    Quick charge is cool...slow discharge is even better.

    That's the major downside of my DX200, could not last more than 5 hours. :frowning2:

    That DX160 looks nice.

    Looks great as competition for Fiio’s M11/Pro. Wonder if it will have a good EQ or some new DSP features like BBE?

    Looks a lot like Shanling M5s....
