My order was sent via Amazon, so if there were any problems, then at least they ( Amazon ) have a responsibility to see that the process goes smoothly, before & aftersales....

 

I actually did wonder if AV Shop & EA, are one in the same ?? I've past experience with electronics companies trading under different names.

Ugh! I am happy for you but I have no email here. I should be in the first batch, *sinking feeling*. Fingers crossed I'll get one soon. I sure hope they fixed their issues with shipping in order of preorder....

Hi James, please tell me AV shop have been added to your list of supplied agents. They show stock on 5th April, but Fiio have so far only listed EA Audio for UK supplies.

I can't find the original message with a question since this X5 thread is growing exponentially everyday.

 

Someone from Canada asked me about availability of Sandisk Ultra 128GB microSD cards on Amazon, and I just got an official reply from their rep it will be available in May/June.  With Amazon US, they are out of stock temporarily, and a few outside sellers (who added their listing under official Amazon listing) just jacked up the price by doubling it.  Personally, I would be careful because you never know if those are real, and even if they are - don't know how the warranty works when you buy from unauthorized reseller.

I know a lot of folks are waiting on the 128gb cards, but if you're thinking to settle for 64gb in the meantime, I got a set of Transcend class 10s at Newegg for $31 usd a piece. Don't have the x5 yet but they are loaded up and ready to go. Nice transfer rate if you've got a usb3.0 reader, too (13-15 MB/s).

If I will get them really late... I might include the Calyx M in the impression as I am thinking of getting the M as well when it comes out. I am very interested to hear the differences between the M and the X5 when using Roxanne. 

All this talk of the Roxanne ... It's aggravating my upgradititus. My doctor's recommending a healthy intake of vitamin M.
Seriously though, I mostly use headphones when on the move. So not much knowledge about headphone amps & DACs. All that's about to change, though. I'll be moving into a condominium soon. Hence, can't be turning on the home system too loud frown.gif

Thanks to Head-Fi, I've got a place to start taking baby steps into the world of headphone amps.
Looking forward to your impressions of the Calyx M.

Very seldom does the warranty apply with these 3rd party vendors, unless they specifically state that they are authorized dealers.

I've been reading this thread and all the reviews of the X5 for quite some time. A few weeks ago I decided to take the plunge and preorder it from mp4nation to replace my iPod Classic. Got the e-mail earlier today that it shipped and with the fed-ex tracking number. Looks like it should be by me in New York tomorrow by 10:30am!! So excited to be able to take my high res audio on the go!

Haha watch yourself!:P I am a student using portable audio while commuting every day. Normally I just had my Shure SE425 and iPhone with Spotify... I discovered Head-Fi around half a year ago and ever since... I have already spent about $2k+ on new DAP's, IEMS, cables etc...

 

It is a slipperly slope haha:P!

Great, thanks!  I suspect that the delay that HDPHNS are talking about is the last one that pushed shipments to where we are now.  Shipments were previously meant to have gone out a bit earlier, by the end of March iirc.

I got burned by one of these last year when I bought 32gb micro-sd for my Note 2.  Controller failed after 4 months (it was constantly mounting/un-mounting in a loop) and when I contacted Sandisk and provided them pictures of the flash card, they told me if was a fake one.  Nevertheless, they took care of the replacement as an exception case when I provided to them my Amazon receipt.

 

Of course, its different loosing pictures/data on your phone (thank God I had most of it backed up externally) versus on DAP player where you most likely have a backup already.  That's why I'm more critical about using original Sandisk stuff with smartphones vs other brands with DAPs (like Transcend deal from Newegg mentioned above - great deal!).
