yes, I can confirmed that X5 may not have bigger power than x3 , maybe the power is the same as X3 . cause we found lots of X3's user bought X3 with E12 together. and we believe even we control the power output to
200 - 250 mw, it already enough to drive all IEM, and for big cans, maybe E12 will be the best option .
James since you are here, I would like to learn your opinion about adding either optical output or USB audio output to X5. Is there a hope for us? Hoichi and I intend to use it with Centrance Hifi M8 and we know we are not the only ones. Because all other options have their big disadvantages like:
AK 100 and 120: Overpriced as hell.
iDevices: No high res support.
IHIFI960: No high res support.
DX100 / HDP R10: Extremely big and buggy UI/ Also R10 is Japan restricted only.
So here we have you as our only hope. Because you always listen to us here and try to help us, fix everything you can and help as much as possible. Will it be too much to ask for a connectivity option to pair it with M8?
