Excellent, thank you!  I believe this is the cable I was curious about.  Do you know if the GoDAP connection is mini USB?

They have both regular USB and mini USB. For idevice it will only have to go through regular USB but for PC Dac mode, you wil have to use it on mini USB port.

$55.....I hope it is included with the Verza version.  Now I have to decide between the portability of Verza and the power of the Centrance HifiM8.

Now have listened to the X with the Note 2 all weekend, I have to say I'm quite impressed. All testing done with IE80.

 
1. I just realized that when running PowerAmp, you need to turn off the equalizer, tone, lmt settings otherwise it compresses the sound coming through your external DAP.
2. The result is significant clarity improvement. Listening to 16bit 44k flac of Dave Matthew's Grey Street, the transparency comes through quite clearly when my 4 months old is asleep.
3. The output of the X is obviously pitch black without a trace of hiss. This is a lovely change it's almost like your music is instantaneously purified. I guess the hiss only matters for those with high sensitivity IEMs.
4. I wouldn't say the bass is suppressed but to me feels more refined and controlled. Is still punchy with added depth.

I saw this picture on AnakChan's post on the - All about the new Apple Lightning cables/plugs - thread.
It is the venturecraft micro usb to micro usb with apple micro usb to lightning adapter on the end.
I was wondering if anybody knows if it would work with my Iphone 5 and Go Dap X.

A friend let me listen to his AK100 today. The X + Note 2 pretty much rivals an unamped AK100. The X Muse version may be slightly brighter, but, wow, I was quite amazed the type of sound quality now possible with USB out plus the nice interface of PowerAmp, etc.

What's the difference between the "amp" and "amp>1" settings on this unit?  Thanks.

you mean at the top toggle switch? One charges your iPhone too whilst the other the battery is dedicated for DAC/Amp only.

Guys, I put mine up for sell here http://www.head-fi.org/t/653293/fs-venturecraft-go-dap-x-red-muse-8920-1-week-old#post_9222268. My friend with AK100 convinced me to get it instead using Note II and the X as my portable set up since I don't use the X as a desktop amp at all. Let me know if you are interested.

It seems Musica Acoustics has basic Go-DAP X red (Muses8920?) and black (OPA2134) for sale for $300 each. I've already got mine but in case anyone else is interested. Feel free to ping them for it.
 
Edit: I think this post is ok. If it's not, please let me know and I'm happy to edit/remove it.
