    It lags only when it try to build the library by both (internal memory and external micro Sd). It won't lag if you use only either one ? I am not sure...I have no lag and I am using 90gb of music internally ....and I don't stream :D

    Pay less for something not as good, or save up and get something decent. I know what I'd do. Just because it's on sale doesn't make me suddenly want it. I'd go for the new DAPs from Pioneer/Onkyo, or even a Mojo over that. And of course if you're looking at the AK line itself, I'd take my ZX2 over the AK240 and below any day (only because I haven't compared the 3X0 models)

    Edit: Sorry, very much anti AK, not a fan of overinflated pricing and marketing BS

    Exactly !

    so jetaudio sounds good but lags like a mofo ?

    @Whitigir  Oh man you've got to try the DP-X1!
    Think ZX2 but with 5x less hiss/noise.
     
  6. Whitigir
    I already placed the order lol...will see how it does

    You got that one also? :p I find the MQA compatibility very interesting. Does it support third-party apps (Android based like ZX2)?

    Also, why is there hiss with the ZX2, what IEMs are you using? Sounds absolutely quiet with my Savant and Angie so far

    I don't find much lagging although interface is acquired taste.The X-Wide + Z-Bass/Treble is really sweet.It will definitely occupy a third of the time i spend with ZX2.Worth the price to me.

    Mine is quiet as well...however the noise floor is not as clean as the Mojo or the LG-V10....the background quietness. So here I am hoping DP-x1 would have less noisy back ground. Let's see...

    It might have better floor noise, but it won't ever keep up in the run time, and build quality.

    Very curious in which one you keep..:see_no_evil::hear_no_evil::speak_no_evil:

    I almost placed an order DP-x1.
    But after mojo experience, Im gonna wait a little longer this time :)

    Now this is very true. There are pros and cons that are reported from the dp-x1 early birds owners now

    1/ 3rd party app may not have full access to DAC circuitry
    2/ tonal body is not nearly as thick as Mojo or Zx2...and mind you that I like the density tonal body from Zx2, the closest to realism that make music feel with emotions
    3/ better soundstage and clarity.....well, there is only so much air/space in the music, so less body density = more room for separations and clarity
    4/ blacker background.....yeah this is what I seek for.
    5/ shorter battery life
    6/ better hardware :)
    7/ newer android 5.1 :wink:

    I will side by side the zx2 - dpx1 for comparison with TRRS connection on both (silver cables) as well, and using my headphones ofcourse :D. The weird soundstage in the Mojo was not something I preferred :xf_eek:...hopefully DPX1 does better

    Pairing with the Empire Zeus XIV ciems. The Legend Omega and the Zeus are very sensitive. The ZX2 is hissy even with my Savant. Granted I'm cursed with being a overly sensitive to hiss and noise (hyperacusis doesn't help ^^).
    The DP-X1 has Lollipop 5.1.1 with full google play store. I can try some apps if you want specifically. But so far the default player on the Onkyo ticks all but 1 boxes: folder browsing which I solely used on the ZX2. To my surprise though, the navigation is so easy and fast that I find my stuff faster with the DP-X1. The displaying refresh rate while scrolling fast is a sight to behold coming from the ZX2. Easy to use PMEQ to boot. Good stuff so far.

    Why not keep both :p  And sell the ZX2 before the ZX3 arrives haha
     
  14. Whitigir
    More likely to sell one .... No point in having one unit lying around

    Is there a direct dock connector to USB cable available? The sony USB adapter is huge for stacking.
