Thanks. I am not singling out the X5 for sunlight abuse. My Blackberries and iPhone 3GS were all nightmares in the sun. It is really only the new generation of expensive reflective AMOLED screens that deal with sun well and Fiio is not going to use those at the X5 price point. A matte screen protector might help a bit but the theme of the X5 is also very dark with grays and muted colors against black. It looks great and I wouldn't change that to get a bit of sunlight advantage. Just step into the shade.  :-)

Just spent the last 15 minutes listening to X5 - a BIG WOW from me so far :atsmile:

Hehe. That's also how I felt the first time I listened to it. And I had the 901 side by side.

There's only one thing left for it to be the perfect PMP for me: last.fm scrobbling :P

Really looking forward to ordering one X5. An availability date has been confirmed ?

 

Please add support in the future to the cover.jpg files that I use for years. :wink:

That's it, I decided, I am getting X5. I can't stand all those positive comments.

 

Release the kraken X5 in Europe!

Argh yeah I'm now utterly and hopelessly hyped about this thing.  :)

I wish people would stop hyping the X5, ordering is going to be tough with the player flying off the shelf. I have got to say Fiio is on something with the X5. I carry this guy everyday now to give it a good burn and it has gotten very sweet indeed.

Sadly but truly, that is just how most forums and product-discussion threads anywhere in the world work. 

 

I personally don't hype anything until I get it, use it, and listen to it. I do however, have light expectations that I carry and set as a guideline for each product I receive.

One more thing to add: I know there are people who complain about the small screen and the big bezel on both sides. But despite its size, it is definitely one of the nicest looking small screen on all the DAP I have had outside of iDevices. I mean, X5's screen doesn't even need to feel ashamed sitting next to Nano 7G.

 


 

Okay, now to cool off all the hyping: X5 sucks. X5 sucks. X5 sucks. X5 sucks. X5 sucks. X5 sucks. X5 sucks...

 

Well, Is it working yet?

post #3585 of 11495

Yes it sucks because it's not available right now :p
