    Lol, this is totally un-true. While I have 4 full-size headphones and drive by zx2 alone. I say, keep the rule of thumb "lower impedance, higher sensitivity > 95db/1mw" for the best result :D

    It wouldn't be unfavourable of course .Isn't it the same guy who reviewed ZX2 for AV Forums?
     
    Looking at the picture of AV forums the back reads C E which is the EU version which is vol capped.Huge reserve of power my ass.

    Yes same man. In his AVForums review he writes: "The power available should realistically be able to drive any headphone that you can connect to them. "

    I have the 200 GB Sandisk card installed and it works well.  I have not noticed any disadvantages compared to the internal storage.  I have around 129 GB of music on my card.

    If you have 200,700 Delta Sky miles you can get a ZX2 for free...

    Or 200,000 miles of air travel. I got 50,000 just for signing up for the card, and I traveled RT from LAX to Brussels for another 10K or so. These things can pile up fast.

    Yes; but as you can sell airline miles for 2c a mile, you are paying $4k for a player which is rather less expensive.
     
    I have no idea if it is better than an AK 380 or not, but there is no need to pay even more than AK charge for one. [​IMG]

    I was in doubt keeping the ZX2 after getting the Mojo, but after 2 weeks using only the Mojo and its engaging sound with spectacular dynamics, fuller mids and impactful bass, I re-discovered the subtle nature and tonal richness of the ZX2 and I'll definitely enjoy both with IEMs. I find the ZX2 less fatiguing, it's much less forward than the Mojo but it's only when going back to it that you fully appreciate how different it sounds from anything else.

    Exactly my points! The ZX2 excel in tonal body density :D

    Mojo is a great computer interface but it doesn't replace a good DAP.

    I would like to sell my new ZX2 at £720 (negotiable) if anyone is interested. Unwanted Christmas present. For collection in London only.

    Managed to listened to the Fiio X7 with my UM Mentor. The difference between X7 and ZX2 is the depth, the ZX2 has quite noticeable more depth to the sound, allowing vocals to be a step backwards and instrument to have its place within the depth, the X7 sounded bright, more in your face vocals. X7 seems to make instruments more distinct, but the lack of soundstage depth killed it imo when compared to the ZX2, the X7 is also quite a bit bigger.

    i read an X7 review and the reviewer mentioned that it is sibilant , which makes it not attractive to me - plus i love my ZX2 and i have zero plans on a new DAP

    speaking of ZX2, do we know anything about its output impedance ?
