post #10306 of 19486

I know that the X5 doesn't have a swap and go battery like the iBasso DX90, but is the battery a standard size and can it be replaced by a user with tools if it dies?

The battery will last many years. And if it ever fails you'll be covered with warranty. I suspect if (after many years) it needs changing FiiO will still support it as for a specific battery you can purchase yourself I'm not sure.

By the time the battery dies, you will have an X7 or X9 smily_headphones1.gif

Yup, I used to be really hesitant at first using devices without replaceable battery's, though I'm fairly relaxed with them now, usually something else fails first.

Heh, I try not to get caught up in upgraditis. I'm still using my Zune 32gb that I got right about when they came out. But the reason I'm looking for a new DAP is that it's started glitching out; the battery is fine. So you all may have a point...

 

Unrelated question, have they upgraded the firmware to allow for multiple playlists to be saved? Or do they plan to do so in the future? I'm debating between this and the DX90, and the tech specs are comparable but info on the UI is hard to find.

You can get most of the info you are looking for using the FiiO X5 user manual.

Here is the link where to find it.

Yes, the battery is replaceable by user and is not soldered in. I had emailed Fiio Service and they sent me a video on how to open up the Fiio X5. However, if you open up the Fiio X5, warranty is voided. If you ask Fiio, they will mail you a battery for a fee. I had the same concerns as you.

Great info!

Yes, thank you, that's exactly what I wanted to know. And not sure why I didn't think to check the manual, that should have been more obvious to me.

Anyway to provide a link to the video? PM is good too, thanks.

It was one of the first made for CD releases and I guess it had to showcase the medium's capabilities. I think it was the first CD I bought that I didn't previously have on vinyl. Oh, and I think it was released on CD a few days before vinyl, just to make the point.

Remember thinking how tinny it sounded on my shiny new indestructible CD!  But that was early CD players for you after being used to records.

Has anyone else noticed a clicking noise/feel when the device turns on? Is this normal?

Yep totally, it's called anti-popping relays, the main purpose is to prevent loud pops caused by the amp switching on/off.
