I guess DX80 is more pocketable and also has two card slots.
What are your favourite headphone/IEM combos with it?

Well I absolutely love the IT01’s with all of my DAP’s and I’m testing out the not even released IT04’s. They are unreal with it. But for the money...the IT01’s for $99 take the win.

I'm thinking of getting a dx80. Are they still a good purchase in 2018? I have a zx300 but I would like something cheaper for work day etc

I guess at its current prices DX80 is still a great choice! 2 memory cards, 10+ hours of work, pocketability, low output impedance... If you like the tonality and headphone pairing, why not.

At $259 on Amazon it is a great buy. Yes people complain about interfaces, but I only care about sound, and DX-80 still sounds great. And iBasso support is very good. It was a bit edgy when I sent my to China for battery replacement but it went well. They respond to emails in few hours.

I've just bought one off advanced mp3 UK for about £200 new. They are on discount today and I applied a voucher. Hopefully I'll like it :)

When mine arrives and I want to update the firmware, do I need to just load the latest firmware or all the ones before it. Sorry if this sounds silly

Don't worry you're going to love the sound of that DAP. It's one of the most highly rated and recommended affordable DAP's on the market today. Frankly it blows the others in it's category out of the water.

Well it’s arrived. I’ve not had time to try it yet but it’s charging and I’ll load it with an sd card later. It’s a very well built unit and looks stunning
