Thank´s for your fast reply, James!

 

Do you mean the same as with headphone out, 10 - 12 hours  or 20 - 24 hours, as with coax?

not.

of course 20 - 24 hours, the amp section will consume a lots of power if the headphone out is connected . and there are a  detector inside the headphone jack, so we can stop the power supply for the amp section when the 

 

headphone jack is unplugged from the headphone out.

Cards Front

 

Cards Back

They don´t look similar to mine, see attached pictures. First, there are some minor differences for the printing of the card (white text), then at the back or the retail box, your say´s SDHC, but 64 Gb should be SDXC, right? Also, the printing for the front of the retail box are different. Then your adapter has a red label on it.

 

When I for a couple of weeks ago, bought two No name 64 Gb Micro cards (black) from ebay, I experienced the same as you - it says about 62 Gb in the PC, but after transferring with a speed of 2 - 5 Mbyte/s, most of the folders was empty, and they only was about 4 - 5 Gb/ each. With the Sandisk Ultra cards, everything seems ok, and the transfer speed was about 7 - 10 Mbyte/s.

 

You can verify if your cards is genuine/ authentic, if sending info and pictures to Sandisk support. Also, an authorized seller can be found here:

If charging the X5 while using it, FiiO warns it can get a bit warm, as I assume the battery will be charged simultaniously when the DAP is on playing. I think this will cause the battery to take longer time to charge (if not having at least 2A. But how about when the battery is fully charged, will it stop charging automatically if the DAP is on playing, and the USB connected power will only let the DAP to play. If so, then it should not be equally hot and the battery life span should increase

.

Or may some power always go to the battery, even if fully charged?

No need to be sorry my friend. To tell you the truth, sound quality wise It is hard for me to state a preference between my X3 and my X5. I use them both quite a bit and really enjoy them both. I like the X3 for it's smaller size and how easy it fits in a pocket. I like the X5 for the extra capacity. I guess if forced to choose I have a slight preference for the sound of the X5. They are both very, very good and when I am using one I am not missing the other. Unless you want to carry 256 GB of music with you, the X3 is a good choice.

I am not sure why the trial would expire immediately after installing. Is it possible that you installed the program once before?

If you just installed Windows what OS were you using before,Linux?

I formatted all my hard drives, including my boot drive, so logically, even if i had the program installed before, there would be no way for the program to detect this.

I will try DVD Audio Explorer. And i've emailed the developers about the weird stuff going on :P

These are pictures of mine, first thing i noticed on yours is that the text on the back is printed on it, not "engraved", and on the front you have the class 10 markings, while i have the UHS class 1 marking.

And it seems like the ink on yours was printed horizontally, while mine's both done vertically.

I don't know if any of this is actually physical evidence of fake vs real though.

Re: Battery life using coaxial and line out.

I use the coaxial out quite often to my Oppo HA-1 and the longest battery time was 27 hours before I charged, and it still had two bars left (but we all know two bars=10 minutes left). When using line out I clock in around ~16 hours before I get to the dreaded two bar countdown. While using the headphone out I get ~10 hours.

James has stated that line out would have the same battery time as coaxial out and in my real world usage this is not the case. The DAC must also be using a good amount of juice whereas when using coaxial the X5 is just a transport (no DAC or amp in use). Mind you this isn't to a full dead battery as I automatically charge when I hit two bars based on past experience.

FWIW from the SanDisk website: Only Ultra PLUS cards have the UHS marking (U), the non-Plus cards all have the Class 10 logo 'only'.

 

Ultra UHS-1 Card:                                              Ultra PLUS UHS-1 Card:

 

                                 

Me thinks the fakes are ones that have the (U) marking but no 'PLUS' text...:cool:

They both hold 64GB, reach the speeds they should, and i bought them from a retail store...if these are fakes, they're the best i've ever had.

Well, the info I posted is just what SanDisk put on their website, so it's anybodies guess if it's totally accurate.

 

I got an idea....you could always call SanDisk customer service with your serial numbers and ask if they're legit...if it's that important.

It's important to me. It's the difference between a load of money + 10 years warranty, or a load of money, and no warranty...
