No problems - sorry I wasn't much help.  I'll ask Joe about a sample for reviewing once we finish the current E11K + X1 tour we have organised.
Sorry mate - haven't heard the E10.  I understand they have a new one out now - the E10K.  I think the original E10 was supposed to be quiet warmish, whereas the new one is more neutral from what I've read.   Here's a few links to read if you have the time:   http://www.headfonia.com/fiio-e10k-classic-reborn/ http://headfonics.com/2014/08/the-fiio-e10k-olympus-2-by-fiio/   And here's a good thread for you on Head-Fi...
OK - X5 via line-out to E11K to T1s   Still sounds quite excellent.
 My preciiioussssss ...........
E11K arrived this afternoon (Joe said my X1 was in a different package - so expecting that tomorrow or early next week).  Just playing around with unit so far - and I think some of you guys are going to really like this little unit.  Fabulous build quality.  Quite a neutral sound.  Oodles of power.

If I read you correctly, you're comparing the $100 X1 to the $300 Hidizs AP100?  Wouldn't you be better comparing it to something in the same ballpark ...... X5? 
Secrets out.  And yes - I'm watching you Lachlan .......
Should be able to - why don't you peruse the main X5 thread?  You might get more info.  I haven't tried the beta yet, as I haven't yet reached the 5800 limit (my files are all redbook flac)
 Agree - but the K612 (compared to HD600) is tonally brighter, and much faster (especially in the bass), with mids that are more in the foreground.  I also owned the K612 whilst I had the HD600.
