So I got my X5 today, along with the DX90.
Big upgrade over the X3 in everyway, but what's with the wheel? It's so loose, it rattles back and forth. Is this normal? Feels very flimsy, but functions fine (only small delays).
Got both the DX90 and X5 in about an hour ago.
-Amp section is super powerful (sounds just as powerful as the X5)
-DAC is very Sabreish with crazy resolution/detail. Weakness is that it's got that Sabre sheen to the treble and the bass pitch definition is kind of one-note sounding. I expected this and I really don't mind. The resolution/transparency and micro-detail extraction more than make up for this. Not to mention the separation/layering. X5...
Yeah I got real lucky. I ordered the X5 a couple of days after I ordered the DX90. Believe it or not. Someone on the X5 thread said HifiMan was about get some in stock so I contacted them and they were like "yup we're getting some X5s tomorrow, look for it on our website." Sure enough 24 hours later it popped up, so I ordered and they sent one out. I think it was sold out super quick. It's not normally a place I go for Fiio products, but I feel lucky because there are...
It is, but for some reason instead of being annoyed enough to start yelling at everyone (which I would have done if it was any other thread) I'm joining in on the fun and updating everyone. I think just too many postive happy thoughts about the DX90 flooding through people's brains. I for one love getting DHL updates of other people (only this one time )
That's very good news. I guess the 560 is more efficient than it's on paper (as I sort of suspected). My DX90 is coming in tomorrow and it does 2.17 Vrms according to "Head-Fi China Jude Equivalent Dude," which is what the AK240 does in balanced mode. Jamato8 was saying how the DX90 can drive the 560 very well, so I guess it can!. Good stuff. 560 = next headphone.
Mine went from Singapore to Hong Kong and is now in L.A. (I think it just cleared customs so it should be here tomorrow?)
It cleared customs in both Hong Kong and L.A.
*OMG, just got a text message from DHL. Delivery scheduled for tomorrow, for both my DX90 and X5. I ordered them on different days and they happen to arrive on the same day? How weird... I wish I had four ears instead of two now.
Mine went from Singapore to Hong Kong now and is in customs? I guess they have a customs for U.S.A. there?
My X5 is in L.A. customs, haha. I hope both my boys pass so I can have them soon.
As for the DX90 powering the LCD-3, that would kind of be unbelievable since I was powering my LCD-2 from a 50Watt speaker taps because I thought the Lyr was choking out on complex passages. But hey, if it can then Ill be shocked and amazed.
Now, the LCD-X, I'm hopeful, along...
