Black Friday sales just went up. Looks like the C5D AMPLIFIER+DAC is $229. Thoughts?

 You'll need an OTG Cable + UAC1 for your android device.This takes the audio signal from the USB port on your device into  the DAC.

Does it work with pre-JB firmwares?

Ah, thought so. Wanted to recommend the C5D for my dad. I guess not. :(

Well that plan backfired. XD

* That's the C5, not the C5D, with the ODAC connected to the Apple Camera Connection Kit

According to NwAvGuy, the "ODAC uses a bit under 1 watt" of power.

Except with a USB hub (not powered), it magically works. -_-
Behold the most portable rig you have ever laid your eyes on.

It was a Christmas gift from my mom a few years ago. I think I saw it at Macy's on one of their random gizmo stands.

What is going to have better sound and separation the C5D or the Fiio E17? Would be mainly used with a IPod classic.

C5D and X3 are different devices. C5D is an amp and DAC, X3 is a DAP.

You cannot use the X3 with an ipod. You can use the C5D with an ipod but you won't be benefiting from the DAC unless you use it with a computer or android/iOS 7 device.

Erm, the E17 was the thing of question, not the X3.

I don't know about the E17, but the C5 is a much more detailed and transparent sound next to the E7 or my friend's E07k.
