Fiio X5 Thread - info updated on Jan 17th 2014 - Page 362

post #5416 of 12227

This just happened on FW1.17beta.

 

 

 

It worked fine again after a reboot.

I do have a Cowon J3 that i have been very satisfied with, but as of now it is broken, so I am looking into the X5.

Support for M3U playlists is listed as on the radar, but requiring extended dev time from FiiO on the firmware update thread. So, it's coming, but not sure when. http://www.head-fi.org/t/707751/official-plans-for-firmware-updates-for-the-x5-after-version-1-10#post_10374432

 

Personally just thrilled they have the album subdivisions ready to go before I get my hands on it, was my last real concern with getting the player :dt880smile:

How about browsing and playing contents in folders?

Yep! Look for the firmware in the second post of the x5 world tour thread.

 

 

 

It's a really solid DAP that keeps improving with each firmware release. I've been using it almost daily since I've had it here with me, and it's a fine companion. Plus all the extra features are a plus.

 

If you were asking about SQ, you already know how I feel about that.:D

 

What are the better DAP players out there?

Yes, that's an option

Wait, you guys are going to release a special locking bracket for the E12 to X5?

Bowie,

James @ FIIO announced the bundle kit way back on Page 316 of this thread, here's what it looks like, no details on release time or price yet but it is not the X5 & E12 bundled together as some had thought but rather just the kit (rubber bands, bumpers, LOD, etc) to hold them together, looks pretty sweet though

I've been skimming over posts pretty fast. 

 

That looks pretty awesome. I just hope the side hooks are either really strong plastic or a light-weight aluminum alloy. 

 

Thanks.

Yeah, I think they are plastic, hopefully pretty strong as I plan on putting some heavy duty use on this thing. Also, I can't remember which page it was but if you scroll back a few pages he showed an updated picture of the LOD that looked pretty nice too.

Hmm, I do hope this hits Amazon soon.  I am growing quite interested in it.

I got one of those about a week or so ago...I didn't read too much into it...I think it's automated for any preorder that sits over a certain amount of time...

Same. BH sends automatic updates every 2 weeks on stock of pre-ordered or backordered stuff.  Though James did post a couple pages back that they are expecting it to be another month before the X5's reach international shelves...I am hoping MP4Nation being in HK means we'll be getting them sooner, not holding my breath, though. Will be worth the wait, I'm sure.

Looks awesome together but I've got a question for anyone who may have tried this combo, what does the E12 buy you that the X5 doesn't already deliver?
