Yes. Please start a new thread in the Introductions, Help and Recommendations forum as requested in your Welcome Message and in the stickies at the top of the equipment forums.   Thanks.
For those wanting a zip version of the 2.4 firmware faster than the FiiO server: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/124389/X5-FW2.4.zip
 I think with both those things, you have definitely eliminated many of the sonic benefits demonstrated by the more expensive DAPs over the X5 and iPhone at least. This is all good discussion I reckon.
 Agreed too all that you wrote! The only thing I think is missing is an idea of roughly how loud you listen. I've always said that, other than for functionality, unless one wants to get the best out of high-quality recordings with high-end headphones or IEMs, the very expensive DAPs wont be worth it, unless you're doing something like buying an AK240 as a complete desktop/portable solution with all accessories. Also that the primary benefit of the better DAPs is that they...
 In case people are having trouble downloading it, this may be faster: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/124389/X5-FW2.4.rar

 While in my case it was possible, I am not sure it would be in everyone's case.  IMO, if someone pledged for something and then was told it couldn't be delivered without paying more money, in that case I believe that it would be reasonable to ask for a refund. IANAL but there is an expectation that you were going to get the product you had pledged for (or something equivalent to it) irregardless of the Indiegogo T&C and I'd go straight to Paypal or my bank as appropriate...
 I don't know if that isolator is available anywhere else as I found it in an issue of a magazine yesterday. I'm also not sure if the Bus Power Pro has any isolation on the USB data lines (I'd have to check). I'm guessing the Schiit Wyrd and other USB power solutions would have a similar effect.  My feeling is that I'm getting the same effect that I did with the AP1/PP without the cost of the AP1/PP (which I already had prior to owning the Hugo). I'm listening to classical...
 After all the playing around I've done and everything Rob Watts has posted, I think the issue is noise coming through the USB connection and not jitter. I was using the AP1, which really only is great with the Pure Power, because it was the proverbial "icing on the cake" sound-wise compared to direct USB. I'm willing to bet this was purely because of noise isolation. I was very happy listening last night with the Bus Power Pro/Emilai isolator set-up. I'm going to give...
 Yes. But when I realised they didn't even know what I had ordered in the campaign, I requested a refund and received it.
