It's been a while since I've posted here. Just received my X5 firmware v.2.0, today, got it up and running and it sounds great.
First test with a set of Shure SE215-Ks and 48-24 .wav files from Ancient Future's - Archive of Future Ancient Recordings. I'm really liking the X5.
Next test with my Sennheiser HD-580's, Tangent Pimeta v.1 amp and music above. X5 feeding from line out. Fantastic!
I'm currently using one 64 gb card. The Pimeta was built back in 2005 and has been working flawlessly. Also have a Shellbrook Labs Super Mini Moy as a portable amp. Yes, I haven't upgraded much in nine years.
A couple of questions...
Which lossless format works best with the X5?
What program would be best for cd ripping into lossless formats?
Anything else I need to know about the X5?
Thanks for any help.
I've had no issues using ALAC.
