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?

Thanks.
Agreed, & thread cleaned up.

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.

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.
