The internal amp on that sucka is beastly meng from what i have read, and is probably better than A LOT stand alone external amps under $200 today. haha But yeah am tempted to get a X5s as well but only if they make one with an all silver color scheme.
Man I wish they had left the metal etched scroll wheel from development instead of the rubber/plastic one, but I kinda like the current ratio of black/silver, it sorta matches our Mikros 90.
At the moment I'm doing the https://www.goldenears.philips.com training/challenge, it's perfect for my newbie ass so I can pinpoint what I feel about my last 6days of using these Mikros 90, and put the correct words (I hope). Taking notes as I pass each 'course' haha.
Also devouring the cable related thread on headfi so I know exactly what I want to order/custom make to go along with Fiio X5/Mikros 90. Currently at page 300 of the almost 900pg thread DIY cable gallery roflmao.
I don't have a caliper, only a school era ruler to measure the headphone connector plug, seems it's 6mm OD, so far can't seem to find a good plug in that diameter. Once I find one, I will mail Frank from Toxic Cables and ask him if it's possible to fit a 4 wire flat litz cable into such plug (26awg).
