Please note that this will be the review of CE6E (and not CE6P). CE6P will be a different beast AFAIK.

Anyone looking for a not massively overpriced DAP that makes a sublime pairing with CE's IEM's need look no further than the Fiio X5. Astonishingly good and paired with CE's HY3 is a perfect marriage. Haven't had to even touch the EQ, everything is just perfectly balanced :-)

That is what I said till I heard the AK240. I admit it is very expensive butit is better. Have you listened to the AK range?

According to some the fiio x3's new firmware update 3.0 brings the x3 90% closer to the 5.  So if anyone is on a budget then that's another option.  Me I'm still touting my trusty clip plus and ipod classic.

I've placed all my proverbial eggs in the Geek Wave basket, in the mean time it is iPhone X / MBA+Geek Out 450

I have the X3 too, and tonally they are different beasts. The X3 is warm and smooth, typical of its Wolfson DAC and the X5 has much improved clarity and soundstage over the X3 and much more balanced sound.

 

Don't get me wrong, I love the X3 and think it is excellent value for money, producing a quality sound, but for me there is no doubt that the X5 is a superior sound and that's not me just trying to justify my purchase :biggrin:

I would have to confirm this. I've been playing with the X5 and the CE4E the last weeks and it is a great combo. I used to have an ipod/2Stepdance combination, but I haven't touch that since I got the X5. It sounds so very detailed that I heard sounds I had never noticed before in songs that I've known for many (and unfortunately that's a lot....) years. I'll post a review somewhere in the next week.

Any update on the HY5? aka CE5H (New naming scheme?)
post #4044 of 4147

It'll be pretty soon I think - apparently the new lab is nearly ready, and I imagine when it's finished Headfonia will publish its CE6 review and the rest of the line up will be revealed.

I want to hear my beloved um3x again, now CE3x xDD. 2 months without them, but don't bothers me, because only looking at the quality of the prefits I'm getting anxious hahahaha xD

Will post my impressions soon, I hope.

Phil... Engage the turbo xDD

Mostly due to the way I was working last year. Very spontaneous job offerngs which involve me having to leave the state I am in but I have restablized in California now and plan to be here for a while so Ixm hoping that once the new lab gets opened up that thngs will become a fluid motion omce more.
