DEFINITELY going to support FiiO with the development of the X7 if I get opportunity, and will preorder at the earliest opportunity.
X5/E12 also looks (and fits!) better in jacket pocket than Sony ZX1/PHA2
Thank you all at FiiO for your constant innovation / development
How wrong was I?! On the bus right now in a world of sonic bliss
Hey Duncan, i haven't got the e12, but the hs6 e12 plus x5 was the reason i got tempted to buy after already heaving the Sony combo,
I agree with you the pha2/zx1 is too big and the Fiio one is sweet:)
I would say, the Sony is prob a little bit superior sound wise, but Fiio is great, just different and i could be happy with both, after all i already had the Sony combo and still got the x5, now I'm thinking dx90+pure ii,but honestly i think all of these setups are superb, so either try it all,ha ha and then decide or just live and be happy as it is, i might get the e12 and return the Vorzuge, still have a week or so.
I am about to sell the zx1 definitely, but might keep the pha2 which is superb (not that the zx1 isn't,just i will stick with Ibasso) or sell both, we'll see:)Edited by soundblast75 - 5/3/14 at 4:56pm
