Oh, come on - the display is for the features you get. The e17 has bass and treble eq (not just a one step boost that can be done with a simple switch), balance control etc.

Have you even used an E17 before? Without the screen, you will probably need to double the buttons number just to cover all the functions. Have you tried to adjust channel balanced or EQ on your PC with a blindfold? That's about as easy as E17 without a screen.

That I agree with, sq first. But it's like they tried really hard to make it ugly. Good thing is that I heard it sounds pretty Damn neutral. Which is a good thing.

Yeah...

What happened to all of the people who nobly claimed they don't need album art or wouldn't even mind a tiny OLED screen if it means good SQ?

I would ask TekeRugburn the same questions as above.
Look, your single opinion of something being ugly or not needed is not enough to label it as "waste of cost". Learn to respect other's opinion, which may be the exact opposite of yours. Please do not call things that you fail to realize as "useless" or "ridiculous" -- that really doesn't make you sound smart, polite or educated.

Mea culpa! I used to be one of them (using a Clip Zip) until I realised that I would like to see the album art (and other details) in a bigger screen, hence my interest in X3/X5 :o

 

Heck, I think I may just get a new phone (been wanting and needing to do that anyway...) and use that as my DAP instead...

Statement doesn't make sense. Realize what?

So what I think it's useless? Or not needed? Did I say you need to think it's not needed or useless? So just because you think it's useful... I need to think so? Am I trying to change anyone's mind? I made a statement saying the x1 and x7 look good and that the x3,x5 and some of their fiio amps don't.

Can't handle opposing views? Too bad

Sensitive much are we if people don't just nod and agree?

Interesting poll survey for the X7, so far most of the features I'd like to see are there but the first one really puzzles me can anyone who voted for it explain the storage requirement for it and how that would be incorporated in/on the player?

I don't mind the X5 wheel but the buttons and physical separation between the screen and the input devices not so much.

u r right, my previous comment was probably dumb... people have different priorities of what they want from their DAP.

For myself, after I have selected the album that I want to play, I really seldom look at the DAP unless I want to find out the track title that is playing...

Here's a hint: the thing most "wrong" with the poll is the bias from the population that it's sampling, not the size... :P

Wish these DAPs offered USB out, as there are so many USB DACs and USB DAC/AMPs out there.  For a separate amp, one would just have to stick with line out.

Getting the correct sample size is entirely question and population dependent.

If one sample size fitted all we'd not need statistics at all.

Makes me happy and sad - happy - will have time to save up - sad - wish it could be sooner. In the meantime have the X3.
