not bad :P I'm hoping I won't have anything to complain about with the Calyx M, but I usually find something :biggrin:

our colleague will help me upload a short Video clip of the X5's UI on youtube soon, which can show that the 4760B is enough for X5.

Yes the number of cores actually not big deal. The implementation is far more important. We will wait. Actually i was interested in HM802. Since i do not like touch screen players. however if x5 will have also mechanical wheel like hifiman then i will wait for it.

The UI looks pretty fast and convenient. I would be happy to confirm it to everybody if you send me a pre production sample as I am very close, in Shanghai :evil:

Thanks for the video, James! The navigation looks fast and smooth. But I'm curious about the SoC's ability to play hirez APE, FLAC files. I mean do the specs remain the same for X5 as they are for X3: up to 24bit\96 kHz for APE (Normal, High) and 24bit\192 kHz for FLAC and APE (Fast)?

I'm afraid the SOC's lower speed is apparent there, in the main menu going up and down doesn't take processor power, but when you clicked enter to go into sub menu's there was a half second delay, that it self isn't a problem as its only slight. However when you did more processor intensive things like select the first song, there was a delay around 1 sec, that to me is annoying and could be twice as fast if you used the newer SOC. (note: If you listen at louder volume you will hear the "click" of the selection button, then the subsequent time taken to register you can work out visually)

 

The DX50 which has a SOC twice as fast, has no lag in menu selections unlike the half second delay in the X5, and for the DX50 when you select a song there is only a split second delay. The X5 could have had similar speeds with a newer SOC, not to mention better battery life. I don't know why everyone got annoyed at me for pointing that out, and now that video has proven it to me. I'm sure most of you will reply saying who cares about the difference between waiting a second, but to someone like me that's significant and I have no reservations pointing it out, smooth is smooth, waiting a second is not.

 

Now after that rant I will still end in saying the speeds of the X5 are still completely reasonable and bearable, even if some other daps like dx50 are faster.

yes, we used a 600mHz Soc in X3, but it beats the other which used 1GHz Soc.  anyway, The Soc in X3 is based on MIPS and the RK2926 is based on ARM. you can't compare both just like you can compare ARM with X86 soc. 

 

 

Also, just buy Sony's DAP or Samsung's and you will get the fastest SOC in the world :darthsmile:

Thanks much for the headsup Jim.....UI Looks pretty nice and responsive.

I like your honesty!

wow the boot time to the main menu looks super fast...

scrolling is just as fast, although the selection took 1/2 a sec, but i'm pretty sure that could be improved with a firmware update.

:darthsmile: the UI has not finished, I just used it to show the speed and how it looks like.

X5 in action for the first time ever!  It's fast!  Fast enough for you trance? :D Apparently not :o Well it's only the first trial firmware ever loaded for Pete's sake!
