Fiio is a great company with great enthusiasm, and the X5 is a rushed product (at least aesthetically speaking).
I will stay away from the X5, for a better finished/polished product.
Everybody makes a mistake (My Boss always tells me one who works will certainly make a mistake, one way or another), and Fiio should learn from these mistakes.
Hope the X7 will be the "One".
Please Fiio take your time with the X7, and we could help design a good DAP.
I know there are many artists, engineers etc here @ Head-fi...who could lend a hand.
PS: Just sold my ZX1 after some time with it, man this thing is a beauty with excellent sound.
I hope it is released outside Japan (US and Europe) so I can get it again.
low on power though (but 24 hours palyback!! with flac)
