If you put touchscreen, you gotta add physical side buttons otherwise the dap is useless you can throw it away. No usability in pocket or whatsoever, so I would say, not maybe but definitely side buttons
I doubt they do it and like ClieOS, don't really care. Was a neet idea.
Apart from it looks.. IMO the design itself is a big flaw..the physical wheel wouldn't be able to hold onto its function after a given period of time (1-2 years depends on usage)...but other than that fiio gets it right when it comes to put a price tag on it..so overall it is good value for the money
dont read too much into that poll. The sample size is WAY to small. It's power is no where near strong enought to show what the people really want. 500gb - 1tb store is just ridiculous. How much music do you guys expect to carry around? Seriously? Two sd card slots...sure; thats reasonable. OTG host is the 2nd lowest wanted feature. only above analog line in.
I have a X3 now, for me OTG is not so much a matter of how much music I want to carry round. I have a pretty diverse tastes in music, and I can never predict what I want to listen to at the moment. Have a s-load of storage saves me from having to swap tunes every few days. I already have a drawer full of minidiscs, don't want to go down that road with sd cards. Until bigger microsds hit the market (at an affordable price) OTG (or adapters) are really the only option. The other bonus is that when it comes to listening at home I could get a self-powered drive big enough to store all my music and use it as a mini music server. Of course scanning times could be an issue, but if a person keeps their music well organized the using the file browser should work fine.
I think most of us voted for the ES9018 DAC chip instead of the larger storage. If Fiio really listen to us, then please change the PCM1792 to the ES9018K2M. I don't wanna wait another 1 year to have the ES9018K2M DAP. Give me a ES9018K2M X5, even the price is 50USD or 100USD higher.
