So far, after a month with DX160, the only disadvantage I found is inconvenience to push play/pause button when the player is in the shirt chest pocket. My solution is the same as for DX200: Swarovski mod.

The crystal is 6 mm 2035 (Chessboard Circle Flat Back), Jet color. The fit and color match are perfect!

By the way: today the firmware add-on v.1.23 has exceeded 500 downloads, and continues counting surprisingly fast! As I heard no a single complain, I believe it helps you all to enjoy music with this wonderful DAP!

Can anyone confirm whether the USB DAC feature has any delay or not?
I just checked youtube and netflix and looks fine to me with no delay.

Can anyone compare the N5ii to the DX160 SQ wise?

Thanks
Compared to DX160, Cayin sounds fuller, meatier, denser. It has more bass, more organic midrange and edgy treble. It's not all that transparent, it has way smaller soundstage, it has lower resolution. Sepraration is only half decent and it's not as direct. The sound feels a little pushed back from you. System wise, it's full of features but it's android is painfully slow and screen is of very low quality.

I just published review of DX160 on my blog but it is in polish. I will not translate it to english so google translate will have to suffice :wink: Basically compared to DX220 I found DX160 still neutral but tilting just a little into more musical and engaging territory. It does not possess as nuanced presentation as DX220 but it sounds fuller. It's very close however, and to me soundwise it feels more like a warmer but still direct competitor do DX220 than a lower quality midrange device. Is DX220 sounding better, yes but only by a margin as it feels more reference and composed. DX160 is more colorflul and engaging.

I will be frank, If u use lurker firmware, u can have google store legitimately, and do whatever u legitimately want to do. If u want to pirate an app, then use APK which is available without google store

Seems Ibasso has a winner here. Maybe a bit better sounding than they wanted it to be.... :)

????? I think they are as happy as can be. They would love to overtake FiiO. It's whether they can keep the supply chain going.

I have installed UAPP and used it. It works for PCM recordings. For native DSD support, somebody (me?) should contact the developer and provide him some information.

I've owned numerous Fiio products, and always liked them.
I just ordered my first Ibasso. The DX160.
I hope you guys are correct that. The Ibasso 160 can compete with the Fiio M11. Thanks for your help.
