First post ever on headfi after reading for a while.
As a Chinese yes I have to confirm what had been said, if you think so called elitism is bad on head-fi, it is x 10 in China site (not saying all of them are but surely it is very divided), it is either super pro-Chinese, where anything made in China is the greatest and kick any foreign maker arse, or it is uttely rubbish because it is made there.
I have read a few X5 thread on erji, basically a lot of hate on the look, size of screen, people saying it is a half finished product; sound wise, people are saying it got bass distortion (!?!) and low output.
One funny thing is, a lot of users there love to compare lower price Chinese machines with something 3 times the price, like saying how disappointed they are with x5 and decided to go with HIFIMAN 901 or ZX1 etc
Good to read for fun but not very informative overall....and there are so much hate there...
