Total waste of time and money. Be warned if you are shopping internationally. If your order does not get fulfilled, you're not going to get a full refund cause you lose out on exchange. Never again will I join another one of these. Useless way to save money. Just order direct from a China electronics site in Shenzhen.
Disappointment as this drop was not fulfilled. Apparently due to supplier allocating the order to another group. Who does that sort of thing? I was promised a $15 credit on top of a full refund but instead I'm given almost $20 short and zero credit for a drop that did not even happen. There better be some resolution on this cause our group never got the goods, but I still have to pay out of pocket?
Our vendor just reached out, and they have some unfortunate news to share with the group. Due to an error on the vendor's part, they allocated the group's units to another order. Whenever we launch a drop, we make sure that the vendor has enough units to fulfill the group's order. This protocol was followed for the iBasso DX90 Digital Audio Player, but the vendor’s warehouse team didn’t put a hold on our units as instructed.
As soon as we received the news, we contacted our other vendors in an effort to source this unit. Unfortunately, no one was able to accommodate our request. Additionally, the alternatives that were offered weren’t able to meet the specs of the DX90.
As a result, we will be canceling the drop and issuing all group members full refunds for their orders. Refunds will be applied to your payment method within 1-3 business days. As a small token of appreciation for your continued support of the community, our vendor will also be issuing everyone $15 in the form of Massdrop credit.
We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and have forwarded feedback to our vendor. We have also added new checks and balances for this vendor in order to ensure this doesn't happen again.
If you have any concerns on how things were handled by us, please reach out at https://www.massdrop.com/support and we will be sure to do our best for future drops. Thanks for your support, and we hope to better serve you and the community in the future.
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the iBasso DX90 Digital Audio Player and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where our warehouse team will break it up into individual orders and ship them. The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 5/6.
We will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 4/25.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (massdrop.com/helpcenter).
Been waiting for the dx80. Must still wait. :(
iBasso stoped production of DX90 at least 9 month ago. Where can you get new DX90 ? I think it refurbished or something wrong with that DX90.
Andrew_N
Andrew_n, I can believe they are 'NOS'. People stopped buying it when the dx80 came out. Stock has been sitting idly by.
Only way I'd buy this is at a way lower price. Strike that. No optical out, and single microsd; I'll pickup a dx80 eventually, here or b&h or something.
Really? $300 for 8 hours of battery (5 hours charging..) and 8 GB:s of memory? Not to mention that ugly design... I guess you'd really need to love having good sound over basically everything else (including your wallet) if you want to buy this.
Ciderus
Ciderus, unlike most players, the battery is user replaceable (BIG PLUS) and it can take max storage SD card...so nothing fatal and even net plus regarding these topics.
I may be the only one who prefers dx90 over dx80 here. I like my DAP small and compact. It's not like the bigger screen on dx80 is doing anything feature wise. Sound wise I also prefer the more neutral if not slightly analytical sound, which plays well with many different headphones.
PxOR
I actually dont have a preference because I havent heard the DX80. My concern is mostly the DX90 retiring and the price. retiring the DX90 gives the impression that the DX80 is their new "flagship" DAP. But I'm like you, I just want the best sound, screen means nothing and I'd prefer as small as possible. If the DX90 is the better of the 2, so be it.
This is a bad deal. The DX80 has more features and costs $359 direct from iBasso. If this was $250, I'd be interested, but this is no good. This is no good at all.

I agree that this make it seem like we don't like the DX90 when in fact we do like it...
I love my DX90 and love the sound. I never upgraded the firmware since 2.1.8. There have been 4 updates since then. Is there a sound improvement with these updates and if so, which one is the best? (2.2, 2.3, 2.4)
Can someone comment on the sq qualities/differences between the Colorfly c10 and the dx90. The Colorfly was recently dropped and I'm deciding between these two. I'm new to this new dap world. I have a Sansa clip that I like but want both better sq for my larger 24/96 library and a unit that has and allows greater disk space
Thank you.
I don't understand the pricing. Ibasso released the successor to this, the dx80 with a bigger touchscreen for $360. This player should be half that.
I didn't know they were still making this.
BillS
They aren't. This is likely some retailer clearing their stock at higher prices than they can get on their site. This is searching for suckers.
micahjrose
Indeed - I paid about this much from a site back in October.
How about a drop for the iBasso DX80?
Can you guys do another drop please i would like to buy my first hi-res music player.
@HassanS Is it possible to have the Ibasso DX90 dropped again ?
plis giff つ ◕_◕ ༽つ
Did anyone receive their DX90 yet? My tracking info doesn't even give me an estimated delivery date....which is a baaad sign
Awesome news group! We’re excited to report that all of the orders have been shipped out from our warehouse a week early and are now on the way to you! Please allow 24-48 hours for tracking to get into the shipper's system and start updating.
If there’s anything else we can do to make your Massdrop experience better, feel free to contact us via “Contact Support” button in your transaction page: https://www.massdrop.com/transactions.
We're also on Instagram! We'd love to see the photos of drops you've received and you can do that by following @Massdrop and tagging your pictures #massdrop. https://instagram.com/massdrop
Great news group! The vendor has let us know that the group's order was picked up and is on its way to our warehouse now. Based on the tracking provided these are scheduled to come in tomorrow. Our warehouse team has been forwarded tracking info and will be standing by, ready to get these packed up and turned around as soon as they come in.
Sometimes shipments get delayed en route, not to worry as we will keep the group posted throughout the process and notify you all if anything causes delay.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 4/21 or sooner if something comes up.
49 buyers down from 50. Let me take that slot, please. Hahaha. I'll probably get a reply back about the bizarre; it'll cost more, take longer to receive and probably get sniped by someone else first. Such is life.
This message has been brought to you in part by the ramblings of someone who's been falling asleep after 5 am for a week straight. X_X
I still want a DX90, but not for more than the drop price. ;/

Is it possible to have the Ibasso DX90 dropped again ?
looks like i just missed my deadline too
Ughhh. I was gonna order one of these today, but I guess MD ran out of allocated stock to sell. My mellow = harshed, bro.
How does this dap compare to the ak120? I know there is a huge price difference but the reason that im asking is because that is one of the daps that i have auditioned that sounds pretty good. I have tried the x5 and doesn't shine for me. I use the dacmini as a desktop paired with t90, hd650, se535, I listen to classical and vocals. The current portable of mine is ipod classic 6th gen. How well does this dap scale for me? Many thanks!
How is this compared to the Fiio X5?
Does this not include an ac power usb charger (for this drop)?
Remember that these are relatively small companies. It's going to cost more for them to add something and they sell a lot less compared to Samsung or Apple, so they'll have to charge a lot more for the same thing. FiiO isn't going to add AptX on the X7 because the license fees were too high and AK240($2400) doesn't even support AptX.
why is this the only audiophile product on Massdrop without any shipping info in the description?? Hello Massdrop, could you please specify the estimated ship date? I'm really interested in getting on board this drop but I'm not really willing to wait until the summer or even longer...please pretty please
doofalb
Thanks for pointing it out, fixed.
I'm considering the DX90 and X5 against the new mid-line X3 (2nd gen) for $199 USD, which has some great specs and options for those who don't need max power or memory capacity. Just shipped to some Fiio sales agents yesterday apparently. More info: http://www.fiio.net/en/products/39 Comparison chart: http://www.fiio.net/en/products/39/comparisons
