Thanks a lot for lightning fast replies as well as good products. I am extremely excited about Audiohile level DAP from FiiO. I just hope that the moment I see X3 on amazon.de or co.uk I will be able to hold myself and wait for X5 wink.gif

This looks tempting.

 

What's the battery life like? Also the UI seems pretty intuitive. From the audiophile daps I've tried in the past the biggest issue I had with them with the UI and battery. It seems like the UI is good so this may be something I get when it is released :)

So...Fiio X5 will be the one (not the DX50)?

I really don't like wifi or Android 2.3 on my DAP as well as touchscreen control. That said, they found out the specs on the DX50 thread was just some Thai's dreams and expectations. However I am really not cool with iBasso and their lack of proper updates. FiiO is more trustful. I want physical buttons, easy to use, good SQ, as high as possible capacity and battery life.

 

Artwork and screen quality or things like that are really out of my interest. DAP should sound good, play hi-res files without a problem not sync with email account and do fancy things.

 

That's my humble opinion anyway. Pure DAP is the best DAP, I don't like useless features and buggy controls.

 

Edit: As a simple example, the reason I stay away from Tera Player is lack of Graphical UI and wav stricted playback. These decision comes from Charles and they bring their own advantages as well as disadvantages. So, one should know his priorities and decide what to buy. I would love to see Tera Player with a minimal screen and more file options to play but Charles already knew these things and he decided what these features take away from the DAP is not worth it.

yep :) 

 

if someone is looking for all around device the htc one looks pretty close to that (with a nice amp if you want more boost)

I am not going to use a smartphone for a DAP. I am currently doing that with my international Galaxy S2, despite the fact it actually sounds good, I still prefer to use a real DAP. It is just a waiting period for a DAP to buy, normally I wouldn't do that.

you can get the c3

I'd happily give up album art for a reduced size/weight and longer battery life.

Will the x3 cases be available immediately, you know, once they're released? What kind of cases?

X3 will comes with a white silicon case, we will make black and blue case for sale, also leather case, but give us some time we are very busy now and these not the most important thing to us.

the battery life now is 11 hours if you play MP3 music and we will try to increase the battery life to 13 - 15 hours in the new firmware.

10 hours, in fact, there are not difference between MP3, APE, FLAC, ALAC , WAV playback because the firmware have not optimized .

Ah, okay. I was under the impression that lossless files were more of a drain on batteries, but maybe that's only with HDD players like ipod classics...
