    The Sony proprietary lens mount is just an updated version of the Minolta system they now own.
    Sony bought the SLR division of Konica Minolta in 2006, and thus gained the basis for their Alpha series of cameras. (Ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konica_Minolta )
    Before that, Sony was already making point-n-shoot cameras.

    If you want to shoot low-light 4K video, the newer Sony Alpha cameras are really amazing.
    But, you're correct in saying that there are not as many system, or 3rd party, lenses available for the Sony cameras.

    Oh true! I was a Minolta user. They had some fine cameras. When Sony bought them out, I moved to Nikon system. I made a fair it of money to finance that transition selling off all my Minolta gear. That 5d was a fine fine camera at the time!

    Talking about proprietary connections - I'm not sure whether Sony has the patent on the 4.4mm 5-Pole connector, or not - but the connectors are available for others to purchase and use.
    It does have the advantage of being stronger than the 2.5mm 4-Pole, and also providing (L+), (L-), (R+), (R-), and (GND) connections.

    Getting back on subject - if the DP-X1 had been built with proprietary connectors, I'm not sure I would have bought it.
    I'm glad Onkyo used current standard connections, because I really enjoy owning / listening to this DAP.

    Just bought a Onkyo DP-X1A on Amazon. I think it's a Japanese model looking at the seller "Happy Best Shop"?

    Just wanted to know of any limits for the memory card? Will a 256GB card work or limited to 200GB per slot? And is speed a problem? Does it need class 10 memory …90MB per second?

    I really like the design of DP-X1
    but I have heard ONKYO's headphones, they are a little bit over price.
  7. cj3209
    I think you should look at other headphones such as IEMs which work really well with the DP-X1.

    Love my Shure SE846. I have tried others and they just don't give me as much joy (sound, fit, and durability), which in the end is what I am after. I have stopped sampling new IEMs.

    That said either my balanced cable is failing or the jack is, as I am starting to get drop-out unless I hold my head high (odd, I know). I don't have another balanced cable to test the options... Anyone know of a relatively cheap balanced cable option that I could buy to test whether it is my cable or the jack?

    That one option is:
    OR more expensive
    I am using that one with SE535 and DP-X1. So far pretty good

    I'm using the FiiO balanced cable for the Shure SE846. I think they were $30?

    Thanks much! I ordered the cheap cable referenced earlier to see if my cable is bad, or if the jack is bad. Depending on my result, I will either be in the market for a new cable or a DAP repair!

    I need a mp3 player for my work as fitness trainer and I wonder if this mp3 player with Android can start Cross DJ (Free).

    Please, can anyone try this?

    Thank you and have a nice day

    It works just fine on the Dp-X1.
    If you look for something cheaper... all you need is Android 4.1+, 1G RAM and a Display with more than 4"
