    Who's the winner? Ive been thinking about the AK70Mk2 for the power they say 4volts which is huge for a DAP.

    All on balanced, the tested IEM is ath-e40, I will say they are on par with different sound signature.

    AK70ii - sounds like a 240/380 , big improvement from its gen I. Strange to find out its SE is quite close in SQ to balanced. I think this is a big advantage for those 3.5mm IEM.

    ZX300 - I think it is more lively than wm1a with more bass and warmth for vocal. But sound stage is smaller than wm1a and dpx1.

    Just returned my DP-X1A. 2.5mm jack became loose in less than one month. I really liked its tonality though, especially with the balanced output. :frowning2:

    After 3 months my 2.5mm socket got loose, basically unusable atm. Back on 3.5mm... hate this quality degradation. :/
    Any chance to repair the player (X1A) in EU?

    Did you buy your DP-X1A from an EU retailer? Do they have a service department, or recommend a 3rd Party Service Center?

    Otherwise - if the 2.5mm TRRS jack has just come loose, and isn't broken - someone who repairs cellphones & tablets may be able to open the DP-X1A case, and resolder the jack.
    If the jack is broken, you may have to find a replacement from someplace like AliExpress, so it can be installed.

    ship it to HK there is a shop called Romi Audio it does repair

    Even there is no rumor, I think dp-x2 is coming. In Japan, the stock are getting low. It has been one year since dpx1a release.

    Looks like Romi can also help install a battery with bigger capacity.

    This is what I'm waiting for while sitting on rubato, do not want to spend money for the DP-X1A again if the new DAP is coming (hopefully)

    Yes, the guy is first to mass repair/mod dpx1 300R series.

    Just purchase an Audio-technica ath-a900x. It was discontinued in 2015, but luckily I found a new one which is sold in 2017 March. It sounds very nice even from SE on my dp-x1.

    I asked about the cost of he Battery Upgrade, and it's HKD$500 (USD$64).
    He said he can also do some other internal parts upgrades, as well as adding some shielding.
