Just get a DP-X1 that's wasn't part of the first batch, or the new DP-X1A that is imminent / just out (I.e. no issues with the earphone jack) and enjoy Tidal offline all day long. I have one of the first batch with the slightly loose balanced out socket and yes, it's ridiculous that they released a $700 player with that fault. However, mine is still working fine after nearly a year. I just treat it a little more gently than I would otherwise. And I listen to 95% of my music using Tidal offline. The balanced out sounds great with a good set of IEMs and (in my case) a nice cable upgrade. I was considering an AK300 as a change from the Onkyo (I'm not an Android fan), but no offline Tidal was a deal-breaker. Otherwise just put Tidal on your smartphone and get a Chord Mojo or ALO CDM if you can be bothered to stack (I have them but prefer to keep phone separate, hence the Onkyo).
