Price japan is selling them for £532... nowt wrong with that AND the pound is still bouncing back... once a new PM is in it'll level off and be even stronger. Think it'll pull at least £500 then. Warenty should be in the box right, registered etc if secondhand and bought in time, book it in, tel 'em its acting up and they'll refresh ya/

Just a shame its not a DAC..... also how are you guys fitting this in your average jeans pocket? .lol. No decent video reviews yet. Glad AK has been taken down a peg, almost sense them smiling at Onyko adding that jog wheel like, 'Check this out and more than 1/2 the price''.

Iriver just got splooshed and any company following their extortionate business model got wet with them.... let us rejoice .lol.

I'd say the DP-X1 easily outlast the Mojo while streaming, perhaps 10 hours.

Can't see any problems with it as the scanner sees right through it. No metal, just plastic and foam. I'll take the stack out and put it next to my phone and tablet during the scan anyway.

Hi bro, interesting looking casing.
Very rigid looking case.
Could i ask the place that you have brought it.?

Thanks,
Jonathan

Thanks edwardsean for the tutorial to make V4A works!
 
Tried it out last night and was not disappointed.
 
The channel pan works great for me (dunno why but I found that the vocal always pan to the left recently, maybe my right ear cannal is blocked)
 
It works better than the one in Neutron. (Less precise but the 4:6 left to right ratio suits me best)
 
Dynamic system is a very interesting function to add texture to the bass.
 
Still figuring out what is the best settings for me now.
 
Highly recommend any DP-X1 user to try it out!

You are right, this is a solid case, tested for 1 ton over 5 minutes apparently.

Picked up my X1 yesterday!
 
I'm stumped with the very good SQ compared with my Fiio E17K, iPod Touch, iPod Color, iPhone 6+ and Galaxy S7 Edge.
 
Paired with the Cayin C5, the soundstage gets even better. I just need to get some sound settings right. Any tips for optimum sound output?
 
- Should I be using line-out when connected with the Cayin?  
- I'm using a Bose QC25 and pretty satisfied with it, should I get a new pair of headphones (what can you recommend?)?
- Or get a Chord Mojo (X1 will be a music transport only? Wouldn't that be a waste?)
- I tried the balanced output with a Beyerdynamic T51P and I am not so impressed. It seems that the X1 struggles in properly driving the T51P. Have not tried the AGC with it though.
 
BTW, a Dignis case is on its way from Korea! :)
 
Thanks!!!

What budget do you have for a new headphone?
 
If you think the X1 lack in driving power, go to settings enable variable lineout mode and use basic balanced mode instead of ACG

I guess I can still afford those in the $200-400 range. 
 
The variable line out mode is already enabled.
 
Thanks for your quick reply!

Ultrasone PRO 900 is within your range, maybe you can give it a try
 
So sorry to hear that  you already enabled variable line out mode and still have not enough power
 
I dont have power issue because I use earphones only

No worries. 
 
Will try and see if the PRO 900 is locally available. As for IEMs, what would you recommend?

Um50Pro was my first IEM pair with the X1
 
It doesn't improve so much from my DX100
 
However, Jh Angies is a very good pair with X1 when using the 2.5mm cable
 
And now I am using Heir 10.0 with a gold plate silver 2.5mm cable that sounds like a dream
 
They are certainly a perfect match

EDIT: Damn! Those are expensive IEMs!
