Admittedly, the AK120 may be a sweeter piece of hardware in the hand, but in terms of audio circuitry, I will be surprised if the X5 is in any way inferior to the AK120, in terms of SQ from the headphone output.

 

Time will tell.

 

It's nice that this will at least be released in China soon, and in the rest of the world, hopefully, no more than 10 weeks from now.

If it is close to an AK100 MK2, it will be mission accomplished.

Any reason for the lack of coverage at CES? Fiio has a booth, they're showing off the X5 and yet this thread has basically died.

The world tour has started, the beta units have been sent out, and there's CES.

But there's still no eyes on coverage or any word of what it's like

What's going on?

It's imminent.... just wait and it'll suddenly gather momentum again! :smile:

On the bright side: the X5 sounds too good for all the listeners to write an impression xD

Perhaps in commercial world you need some network to get coverage?

As for the x5, it is using pcm1792 and the other dap that is using the same chip are hifi et ma8/9. Just wish to see if anyone is familiar with this dac chip?

LOL!

Friends from Hong Kong claimed that MA8 has a special synergy with dynamic IEM, not sure if this is related to the pcm1792 or their analogue circuit, I sure hope X5 retain that characteristic.

post #2982 of 19481

Oh and does anyone know how this will compare to DX90? I know neither of them are out and the X5 is almost certainly gonna be cheaper, but is the DX90 gonna be substantially better?

post #2983 of 19481

After DX50 i have no faith in Ibasso ...
They have X5 demo in CES but we dont have any impression .... Why ??????? Does anyone try it :((

It will be a very interesting competition but if DX90 did not manage their bugs well and produce something of excellent stability, they may fail be it the SQ good or not. $500 is not like $250 IMO xD
