I should mention that this will be my first DAP and that I have only once listened to a DAP so no matter which one I get I'm pretty sure both will be fun for me. If iI can find the dx90 cheaper I will get that but for now I will be saving up for the x5.

I gave up on the DX90 precisely because I found it too bright and cold for my tastes. It uses a sabre DAC implementation after all, those are known for neutrality and accuracy. I also gave up on the X5 and stuck with the DX50 because the X5 was too big for my amp; shame really as I rather liked how it sounded with my amp too.  It also helps that the X5 is cheaper and has more storage options.
 
EDIT: NVM the Japan edition is 49,800 Yen ($490), just go for the normal $350 version.
