Hi James! Do you know when will the X5 arrive in Hong Kong? And about the X5 + E12 bundle kit, will it be available? Thanks!

however, you could try eBay, i'm sure there's someone selling these.

 

Thanks for the warning.  I am fully aware of the risks but am prepared to go through this process to import one from China at this stage.  As long as it's not a DOA I'm fine.

 

I have tried ebay but to no avail.  Maybe it's still early days.  However, I tumbled on this:

Not sure if ClieOS is too worried about plugging into the wrong jack or it is a fact xD But I hope FiiO label the words on these two jacks clearly so that no accident xD

Anyway... i think i will wait now since i was pretty set on a Sony ZX1... There is always something to keep you guessing...
Sorry.... Didnt know who he is....

Sorry, X5 is only available in Mainland China, and the bundle kit is not ready too.

Will there be an international X5-E12 bundle available?  (I'm not so keen on Amping, as it then becomes almost the same size as a DX100, but I am still curious about availability).

Bundle means you get a reduced price compared to buying each them separately right? Not sure I am interested but, it might be a good start.

I think fiio is developing a bundle kit so that u dont need to use rubber band.
I am not sure if a bundle deal will be available thru distro. However, i would highly recommend the e12diy kit

I didn't get it. We don't need rubber band; so it means we will have 1 device (contains both of them?) or how do they manage it? Sorry it is a bit confusing for me.

A bundle kit likes above.... it is just an illustration to gather customer input on fiio board.

Oh I see. Well it might be interesting after all but not sure I am gonna go for it. Just X5 would be sufficient for me now, for later I have other plans :happy_face1:

Or is it something like what V-Moda is doing to iPhone / Samsung Galaxy phone and their DAC/amp?

If something like this ever comes to fruition a custom-tailored LO - AMP input bridge would be the icing on the cake. Rock dat brick! :L3000:

I think as long as the widths r similar, other amps would fit too.. I am hoping to carry x5 alone when outdoor in order to avoid unwanted attention....
