For $350 Fiio X5 is a perfect DAP, no doubts. I moved from DX90 to X5 and I 'm happy with my choice.

I'm not aware of all details since he just does not share many details but in two words:

he optimizes power supply to components inside, replaces capacitors, removes some "unnecessary" components. In the end it impacts both DAC and amp section providing more clarity and details, less noize.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Thanks.  A little far away to try.  If it's beneficial to do, maybe someone more local (N.A.) will figure it out.

Hardcore audiophiles are strange .......

 i never noticed any noise in my x5 to begin with

 

but, better sound quality exists. always.

this is like what i am feeling like. i almost came to hate too much bass... like ie8 have too much bass, but my ultrasone dj one pro don't have bass. almost none at all. and i feel kind of better...

Where "better" becomes measurably better rather than audibly better, yet costs more - I think I'll pass. I'll leave that for the audiophiles to chase wink.gif

AK120 as an example, this is a real clarity and no noise at all but I don't like it. To me it sounds too lifeless and I don't like the bass it produces and in majority of cases it requires an external amp...

Tried the line out for the first time with a Graham Slee Voyager amd I am pleasantly surprised.....it is actually a major improvement in all aspects with all of my headphones but outstandingly so with the PS500.

If you want lots of highs, soundstage, and detail retrieval you need to get the K3003 for sure. IE800 is pretty good for all these things as well, but the K3K is the high specialist for your tastes. But be warned that the bass decays slower than the mids and highs. I like the effect and think it was done on purpose, but some don't like this about the 3K3.

 

I can confirm that the 3K3 and IE800 sound glorious from the X5, but I think the DX90 is the better pairing for those two (for my tastes). I really like how Sabre handles the treble these IEMs, also gives them a lot of air and seperation which is what these IEMs need, room to breathe.
