I suggest the Dunu dn1000 hybrid iem $179.00 on ebay.

wait a minute so if an album has 20 songs I would need 20 jpgs (one for each song) just to get a cover art!!!???

 

Seems to be; I don't recall seeing the album art if I used cover.jpg as a name.

My tests cannot be complete though unfortunately since I have already sent the X5 to its next destination. :( But yes, what worked for me was the keeping the album art name same as the song file name.

21. Support for more external album cover files.

 

which may includes cover.jpg cover.gif or folder.jpg, folder.gif

 

Thanks James! Is it possible to have a section about album art in the manual too? I don't recall seeing any such documentation about it, which perhaps could explain the questions people are asking here...

WooHoo!! I ordered my X5 from Headphone Bar today in Canada and I should be receiving it early next week. I'm pretty lucky to work just a couple blocks from them. Walked in, asked if I could pay for one of the few units coming in, and voila!

Now my only question is what to do with my X3? Hahaha.

I've got the same problem wink.gif. I'm thinking of using it as a dedicated DAC for my laptop at home.

Yeah. The wife says "sell it", but I say I can find a use for it.

How is the support for embedded cover art? I have all my album art embedded inside the FLAC files themeselves and have a single folder.jpg as backup in the folder of the album.

Embedded cover art is supported. smily_headphones1.gif (assuming it's in a format the X5 can read and not too large)

Super! I always use 500x500 pix so that will be fine.

Haven't seen it answered yet, but does anyone know about the other US stores like B&H and HeadRoom and when they can expect stock?

I would continue checking with Micca Distributor store on Amazon since they are TekFX storefront for FiiO products.  Based on the latest info from Tekfx, X5 should be available in a week or so.

Well, my only issue is I already preordered from HeadRoom - I would prefer to not cancel with them (plus they already charged my card and I know I am in the first batch), I am just hoping they get it within a couple days of this US release! If not, though, but I will cancel and order it somewhere else if I can get it a lot sooner!

I am in the same boat...I ordered from B&H when they first offered a pre-order, thinking it would get me in with the first batch....if they are only getting theirs in a month though, I want to go with someone else...
