"Yep, put all the sliders UP and then lower the ones you want to decrease.  For our basshead :smile: that would mean all of the bass sliders up and the rest lower, then play with volume control.  "

 

Using the eq lowers the device's loudness.  You need to increase the volume to make up for that.  

 

And, again, the eq on the X5 is minimalistic.

Was listening to some Bad finger - "Day after day" today.

 

The X5 satisfies my basshead needs and plays (Sz2K) with some e12 push......  on a ma 900  The X5 alone...like butter...melting butter. What an impressive item FiiO has made.

@Hawaiibadboy: What's up with the silver X5, bro?

I totally spaced on pg 930 about the SD card.  Rookie mistake, call in my mulligan.

Glad you are enjoying it.  I like the sound pure, no eq, no amp.  With my A83s, it's as good as I can want it to be.

 

Until (maybe) the X7 comes out.:tongue_smile:

The line out is better than headphone out with the e12

 

X5 (headphone out)  to e12 input then e12 headphone out to cans

v.s.

X5 (line out) to e12 input then e12 headphone out to cans <<<<<winner...clearly...why??:confused:

 

of note is

 

Between 1:50 and 1:52 an event takes place. I dunno what it was but it allowed me to do what i couldn't do with headphone out.

 Very odd.

 

Love the sound.

Would like a eq that had more range than +6dB though...please:o

 

 

It's just the flash making it look silver. Same as the one in the vid.....black

Talking about how the line out + external dac might be better then just headphone jack cuz of "black" background.


Does anyone know what settings controll in the qualizer I must change to get for example *bass boost* treble boost * or mids boost, highs boost etc.

@chrisssj2
Maybe you've figured this out already, but the sliders, from left to right, control low bass, mid bass, low mids, mids, high mids, mid treble, high treble in that order...

(there may not be that many sliders on the X5 EQ but this is to give you the general idea on graphic equalizers redface.gif )

Do you mean with a PC / Mac?

 

I've had no troubles at all, but I think you need to select ASIO output (not 100% sure) so maybe check that if you're having troubles

I'll try that out tonight.
I'm using Windows 8.1.
Wish me luck!

what type of problems are you encountering on what OS>?..

 

EDIT:: for some reason i did not see the last two posts.. on win8.1, there are some known problems, with windows not letting the drivers install because they are not signed... i remember that you must disable UAC, before installing x5..

Chris - if you are having the issue with the driver failing to install on 8.1, try this link : http://www.howtogeek.com/167723/how-to-disable-driver-signature-verification-on-64-bit-windows-8.1-so-that-you-can-install-unsigned-drivers/

 

You just need to disable the security - it's because the driver is unsigned.

Yes, there were some specific posts about this a few pages back

I'll try this out.

Edit:
OK,
I tried that out, the driver installs OK, but no sound out of the X5.
Maybe the driver doesn't like Firmware version. 2.34?
The speakers on my notebook computer do not mute when USB cable from FiiO X5 is plugged in.

Just ordered an X5.  For the micro sd, I know it needs to be class 10, stay away from fakes.  Other than that, are there any specific criteria?  I am going to buy a sanDisk 128gb, but there are several options.  Please advise, thanks!
