FiiO X1 Ultraportable Hi-Res DAP

“ Click any image for full size (1200 x 800) resolution INTRODUCTION I’m a proud owner of the Fiio X5 – it’s been my go to DAP for some time now, with the only drawback being ultimate portability if I’m jogging, or just out and about wanting a really simple set-up.  So when Fiio started talking about a new entry level DAP in the sub $100 market, and already knowing what they are capable...” --Brooko

FiiO X5 High-res Portable Music Player

“ X5 - Strength and Beauty The Fiio X5   INTRODUCTION My audio chain has actually been pretty stable of late, my last addition being the Studio V3 Anniversary (DAP) and Dunu DN-1000s.  With the addition of the Studio V3, I had pretty much solved the one missing component – a decent DAP for my requirements.  I watched the progress with other...” --Brooko

Apple iPod classic 160 GB (7th Generation)

“It's exactly what it says it is. I've tried some great looking, incredibly expensive DAPs - Honestly, in my opinion, a lot of them just add colouration, or EQ, or look pretty. Some of them do perform well, but fall short in many areas. If you just want your music files to be reproduced exactly as they were mastered, with a line-out to pipe your music into any amplification you might...” --White Lotus

COWON J3 32 GB Portable Media Player (Black)

“ I love having something no one else has, that’s how I live my life making my own path.  At least that’s how I feel when someone gawks at my J3.  Every third person on earth has an IPOD, nothing to talk about, no fun, typical, average,  yawn.  Now the J3 is a special player in every aspect.  When you pick up this shiny black glossy unit you expect a lead weight. ...” --ZIPUR

“What i really love about this player is its wide sound stage and sq. Every time i listen to it with my headphones or iem's, it blows me away.  I spent hours of listening to it everyday.   It can drive many iems or headphones because of its built in amp. it has lots of power.   The battery can last 8-10 hours of continuous playback.   The build quality is solid and it...” --arjane

FiiO X3 Portable Music Player

FiiO X3 Portable Music Player

“Package & Build:   FiiO X3 comes in a nice box with adapter and micro USB cable, as well as a nice soft silicone sleeve to protect the player. It is built very nicely, has some retro touch to it since it doesn't have any wheels or touch screen, just buttons and normal, not so good, screen (but it does the job just fine). It has coax out, line out and 3.5 mm headphone jack as well as...” --Tail

Colorfly Pocket Hi-fi C4

“ First of all I just want to put a caveat on the User Interface notion. At the end of the day, we are striving for sound and we all do crazy things to get the best, gripes about it are meaningless and in reality just spoils any review and we have all been spoiled by the iPod's UI, but an iPod sounds like a lump of clay, so with that done.   This is mind blowing, I have no idea why...” --Vespertine
