I have the ibasso and i'm really satisfied. Value for money'wise - its truly a great bargain.
I'm considering purchasing the sony ZX1 but i read it's cpu is kinda weak and will have trouble playing 24bit tracks.
I use a Topping NX1 as an external amp so the power is less important. It seems to me you pay a lot more because of the brand.
Would greatly appreciate any recommendations.

I preferred the DX90 personally. The ZX1 was good but the bass sounded a little bloated to me as compared to the taught DX90. The ZX1 was also a little brittle in the highs, at least that's what I was hearing with my JH13s.

Wow- although the UI difference the value for money of the dx90 is one of the best I've encountered.
