Yup, I prefer the approach of HiFiman, AK and FiiO in terms of topology and storage.

I ordered the Sony on a (expensive) whim and I am looking forward to the X5 and Calyx. But I doubt that any of them can beat my 901 balanced sound wise. It might be a brick but it incorporates a killer dual DAC and a high level fully balanced amp, all imcredibly implemented. The stakes are high.

Just read up a bit on the HM-901. Yup, I'd be surprised if the X5 can beat it. But if it comes even close, look out!

OK, we've all seen the poster with 75% of the device disclosed.

Now, here's the fully exposed one?????

I saw it from a Chinese forum

He mentioned X5 is superior than X3 in transparency, details and resolution

but with bass toned down by comparison.

That looks....utilitarian. :smile:

 

Just kidding, looks pretty good, the final coating is still missing I assume..or not.

Great idea to include a mechanical scroll wheel, love it on my rockboxed Sansa Fuze.

Hmmmm Epic fail as far as styling goes....

 

I would still buy it for great sound though

That is the final shape of the player but the color scheme will be different.
post #1793 of 19490

post #1794 of 19490

Would prefer those tiny lil bars on the side of the iPod like wheel to be removed though...

I totally agree.

 

They make it look like a child's toy.

 

However, I'm guessing they have been put there in order to differentiate its appearance from the iPod Classic, so as to avoid potential law suits.

 

Like Sauntere, I can overlook the criminally-naff styling if this DAP performs as well as we're all hoping it will.

Front part could look better probably but I don't mind honestly, since its purpose is playing music. As long as it sounds amazing and easy to use and all the features work, I am all fine. Build quality seems awesome though. I can imagine this device last reaaaaaaly long.

post #1798 of 19490
I am also concern that, in the future, below those mini bars, it will collect dust. If it's white / silver / grey, we gonna have a hard time cleaning it frown.gif

I doubt Apple will sue as well... Because Apple = Style / Brand when it comes to music. FiiO = SQ, SQ, SQ, SQ , SQ AND MORE SQ then build quality, accessories xD

From the centre to the raised outer ring reminds of Classic Steam Locomotive's nose......w/o X :wink:. And now we all steaming for the launch, as it was confirmed, that it's the final version but change in color scheme.:atsmile: by the fiio sponsor!

 

Hmm one interesting thing though.......our mates relay first hand info from chinese sites but only then our FiiO Heroes hop onto the thread to add more comments officially by the time most of us read. LOL....:popcorn: understood they are busy meeting the deadline next door.

* +1 that's where the silicon skins and leather case come into business. BUSINESS AS USUAL:wink: .

 

** Yeah but Apple will always/mostly lov to sue with design infringements,patents......as they already knew they can't with SQ etc...Ssh...might sue us as well.
