I was just passing what they said on to you, no need to "implode" about it, LOL!!
You can read the reviews and comments by Lee and H20 along with some Studio V comparisons on http://www.head-fi.org/t/696004/fiio-x5-preview-world-tour-call-for-gift-ideas-for-our-awesome-tour-members-p-119. Not sure what page the V is on.
To be honest, Eke borrowed my Studio V 3rd anniv and compared it to the iphone4 and he said the main difference was the Studio seemed brighter. I compared the two and my ears heard the same thing. I actually preferred the warmer sound of the iphone to the 3rd Anniv, which is warmer than the V. My combo is the Studio V3rd and the Tralucent T1, the T1 gives depth and warmth to the Studio. Compared to the iphone, that combo sounded virtually the same- perhaps a bit more technical was the combo, but very close. I used to have the V, then I had the 3rd anniv and to be honest, I'm tired of the analytical SQ and UI. My hope is that the X5 will give me the warmth I like along with enough technicality to feel it can replace my current combo.
