The irony is that Apple have more R & D funding, and buying power than any other company in the world, so they could make one of the best-sounding DAPs on the planet but they're too busy treating their customers like nothing more than bling-hungry anonymous numbers. I suppose it's made them successful, but they could be so much more than that, as well.

 

Never mind, at least we have smaller companies like Fiio, to make higher sound quality DAPs :bigsmile_face:

Jeez, I had 2 guys knocking @ my door....serious. they said "Sir you 're very much eligible to spare rest of your life behind the bars w/ipod classic" I said politely and wisely " With all due respect a song from apple a day keeps the lawyers away" Boom they gone. :confused:

 

Man, I saw the spirit of apple (not apple wine) in their eyes. :eek:

I owe my sincere thanks Billy :beerchug: for saving my :deadhorse: LOL....

Any sentence constructed as follows: "The + name of a people + are this way / will always be this way" is bound to be wrong / offensive / not very smart / borderline racist. Actually your sentence is the exception to this rule. Just kidding, it's NOT.

It looks fine, so I don't get why people complain about it - it's a music player and 90% of the time you don't even look at it. I guess Fiio just really wanted to incorporate the X, which stands for their X line of DAPs. Whether you like it or not it's there. Maybe instead of using metal pieces they could have laser engraved 4 lines on their place, so the X5 remains sleeker but I don't really care.

exactly they have atm power even sony didn't have when it was huge. but they use it to put locks on absolutely everything. not my idea of trying to better themselves.

the end of the road will be when apple put patents on human shapes and get us pay for using it. then you would see me walking like that to avoid taxes.

 

 

 

I have a lot of respect for fiio because they never tried to sell us unicorns, the prices are realistic not like those iriver thieves, and they get better with every product instead of making new stuff with the old stuff like cowon. fiio shows my idea of progress.

about the look of the X5 I can't really talk, I preferred the look of the X3 over dx50, and tend to find hifidude daps pretty :redface:, so you might not want to use my opinion as reference when it comes to fashion and design ^_^.

I am merely expressing my opinion
Which will not change until i see a decent product!
Considering i have given these people soo much of my cash i don't see how am i not allowed to express one.
If it makes you happier i will gladly remove the comment, but i don't see how this is a free speech forum if i can not say what i did!
Unless you wanna turn it into the perfect advertising machine of course..

Ahh yes, Mr Cleese. The bean-counters in the Apple boardroom could do with someone with a sense of humour chairing the meetings,  now Jobs is absent!

"Hear, hear!"

 

Although I've given James a bit of stick on a couple of different occasions in this thread, I actually like the guy and very much respect his attitude towards his customers; something I've not been shy to say here or in other threads (e.g. the Sony NW-ZX1 thread).

 

We could do with Apple and others taking a leaf out of James'/Fiios book, with regard to treating customers with respect and genuinely striving to create products they desire.

 

James, I salute you! (and so does she :wink_face: )

Guys guys... those four metal pieces are not decorations, they are BUTTONS. Would you like to have 4 less buttons with which to navigate the X5? redface.gif

That's extremely poor form just because you don't personally relate to a product with a smaller niche. It's quite an accomplishment in quality and packaging. Obviously not appreciated by some. Usually the technocrats.

I said I don't mind them but if they are buttons then I totally agree with the design choice making them form an X. It's actually kinda cool when you think about it.

Admittedly, it was worded rather strongly, but I think it was aimed not at the AK products themselves, but rather the price-gouging with the AK DAPs that has got many people's hackles up.

The ugly sister makes a better wife.

Hopefully.

lol. Now you made me even more interested. Good implementation of X line symbol and buttons around the wheel. Now I started to like it.
