    Here are my points. As a newb in reviews, I doubt that I stand a chance among these finest challengers of reviewer accross headfi community. But my points I think will make a point none the less. First I think a newb perspective can be more informative to readers who are already familiar with the brochure like fancy reviews that several reviewers are able to produce. To some degree brochures are already provided by the oems. Secondly, MFi implies users should use an iOS loaded device, and I have an iPad mini. Thirdly, the Fiio's new InfinitySound capability suggest you would need a new cable as well, maybe it is provided, but some headphones may not accomodate. Just saying, it maybe worth noting if you are going to review the things that Fiio brings to the table so to speak. At this point my points have run out.

    Competition looks pretty stiff, even among newbs. I was thinking the cheapest balance earphone is like $9 and I really want to find out what all the buzz is all about, but my chances are quite slim so hmmm.

    Assuming Xmos is a system on chip with memory and core software to interface to usb and other devices like dacs, I'm wondering if the Xmos will come configured with its own dac circuitry, be it much simpler than the AKM dac chip. This way in the future the firmware can provide the user to access dual dacs and maybe even turn off the AKM chip to save battery when the usb bit rate falls below threshold. I'm assumng AKM implementation would be superior to the Xmos.
