    Will you honour your original price if purchased before the adjustment.

    Mmm.....because having digital out is standard for modern DAPs. Also, it is an equipment multiplier (fine tuning the sound signature depending on headphones used). Finally, driving power of an external amp is required for harder to drive headphones. No digital out is a deal breaker for me.

    I dont need digital output on my DAP, but I read that it is similar to android phone that it can do USB OTG to connect to outboard DAC. Personally, I prefer to use computer for this purpose.

    So 379gbp is the wholesale price for UK retailers? LoL

    Let's hope that the XDP-100R receives a firmware update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow so that the internal storage and the two microSDXC cards can be presented to the user as a single, unified partition.

    No mention of DLNA?
     
    Have read it is DLNA certified,took the plunge,was going to wait for the Fiio X7 but have a soft spot for Pioneer,MQA should sound good from my HPM-100,S.

    What is the relation between Pioneer XDP-100R and Onkyo DP-X1? Is this a joint creation between Pioneer and Onkyo? Or did one company engineer it and the other company re-brand it with different features like balanced or lack of?

    Probably, the pioneer is just a re-branding ... :frowning2:

    Probably similar to the DAP by both Onkyo and Teac:

    http://www.teac.com/product/ha-p90sd/
     
    Likely shared development to save costs or some sort of licensing (auto makers do it all the time: Subaru BRZ / Toyota FT86 and Scion FR-S).
     
    The Onkyo version of this "Pioneer" player looks very similar (side controls, screen, form factor) aside from the balanced out, no speaker, and doesn't appear to have the screwed on extensions on top and bottom of the Pioneer.

    Yeah I own the dap that was created by partnership of Teac and Onkyo (P90SD), and I really love it, my favorite dap in terms of sound. So I'm keen to see what some other Japanese partnerships come up with, when two companies work together it usually means a product that's twice as good, P90SD sounds great, and as you said, Toyota X Subaru created the great FT86, but what I'm really excited for is the Toyota X BMW, FT-1.
     
    Japanese + German = best car ever [​IMG]

    How did you know [​IMG]

    I see a blue one...!

    Best car ever is still the Mclaren F1 (admittedly it has a BMW engine......).
     
    Closest approach to that in DAPs (including price) is the Tera Player. No screen since screens apparently add noise/jitter. If someone found a way to make a fully functional DAP with a GUI and no compromise on sound quality, it'd be the F1 of players.
