Sounds like a great bit of kit. I am especially fond of the built in media controller. Seems like a sweet spot of a portable amp. - ALR-
Hey Jude! Looking good! :)
I like how you just keep on rambling on without an edit or a cut inbetween. That's some serious stream-of-conscious talking skill there. Not that many "uhh"'s in there either. Good job! Can't wait to see you evolve into a venerable talkshow host. :)
The XM6 looks like a good alround solution for someone needing a portable amp/dac but it's questionable if you can't find better solution in that price segment. $470 (with upgrades) gets you quite some interesting amp/dac combos. They don't give you the flashlight though. That alone is worth an extra $100 right? RIGHT!?
Which microphone are you guys using? Could it be a Zoom product? Also (sorry for nitpicking, I work as a video artdirector) you could dramatically increase the look of the video with some slight colour-grading and a better composition. Now the video looks too tungsten to me and the composition cluttered. Again, this is just me nitpicking. Disregard anything I say. :) Anyhoo...
Great video! :)
Love my XM6. Though, if you don't particularly desire a Wolfson DAC, I think an XM5 is better for the budget.
XM6 is also pretty awesome as an external soundcard for PCs, though it runs kinda warm for me (though I haven't had any actual issues with it yet).
Sometimes my foobar playback skips a bit though, dunno if that's the fault of the XM6's DAC, of the harddrive I'm reading the music off of, or of my foobar settings.
Yeah I have the same situation with DecWare ZH1, I think We hav eto go and do it Ourselve's!
