Paired with AMP8 MKII, this can't be beat. It literally takes you there especially with filter D4. Sounds better than the $3500 Sony WM1Z and my other DAPs, ZX500, DX160,NW-A55 which have all been sold or given away.
DX240 has layers upon layers of sound. Android SRC bypass makes all apps bit-perfect. Tidal sound like a live event especially with live albums or songs. My jaw literally drops every time. I love music and this is exactly what I've been looking for all these years.
Great synergy with my ThieAudio Monarch OG (don't like the more forward treble and leaner bass in MKII Monarch) which is paired is MKII cable (So much better for details, separation and better bass)
DX240 is a steal for under $1000. I'm more than satisfied
Love the device, but the service was even better.
The DX240 is the highest fidelity DAP on the market, rivaling or edging out even the Lotoo Paw Gold Touch. With its ES9038Pro DAC chip, and the default Amp 1 MkIII, the DX240 gives an unsurpassed clarity and authenticity to the music. Paired with my Final A8000 earphones, I have never before had such a thrillingly precise rendition of my FLAC files in a handily portable package. The fidelity is fully on par with my outstanding desktop DAC+HPA setup. Many kudos to iBasso!
