But how does an increase of 100% in dB not make it twice as loud?


The decibel scale is logarithmic.

I'm sure my teachers would understand.

Always worth a try.

I got my cks99 in today, and ran it through my iphone. They sound plenty loud and amazing. The only thing possibly lacking is bass. I would love to be able to boost the bass. Maybe an x3 or x5 would solve. Short test though and need to try better quality audio to know.

 

So listening to the cks99 on my desktop rig proved they have great bass, and someone gave me the heads up on the accudio free app and eq problem is solved on my iphone.  The app lets you choose your IEM's or HP and it EQ's them for you.  Mine weren't available so I chose another AT IEM and boosted the sub bass all the way.  

 

I'll just stick with this setup since it sounds great and I can hear calls while I listen...plus nothing extra to carry.  Thanks for the tip on the app!  L3000.gif

Full-size 128GB SDXC cards are around USD$100 now and can be used in microSD slots with the help of an adapter:   
For details and photos please see post 8204 on page 547 of this thread:
 
Personally I would prefer to have a 2.5'' SATA or 1.8'' ZIF interface to use SSD storage, but that may not happen in the near future (different hardware and firmware may be required, so I guess it is not possible for X5 at this point).

Will X5 able to support microSD 128 ~256 GB?

I asked the same to James in a few pages ago, some search could be good.

 

Technically, when 128 gb microsd cards out, X5 should read them without a problem but of course without knowing the technicalities of microsd card, it is a bit early to say something precise. Normally, they would work.

 

So with X5, we will most probably get 128 x 2 gb of music files with an exceptional scaning ,reading times. Pretty impressive.

although it may work, but it will be better not to use such high capacity TF card because it make the system take more time to handle it.

The sound quality will be better than X3, in fact, dual WM8740 will be cheaper and consume less power but we believe one PCM1792 is better than dual 8740. just our opinion.

Up to date, X5 is still stick with a single unit of TI's PCM1792 (DAC chip) and not dual DAC?

What would be the Op Amps used in X5?

I think it is quite impossible to make devices for a future technology, without knowing what is exactly coming. Fair enough. Btw, an impatient question. You mentioned X5 will be out before 2014, but will it be available worldwide before 2014? I mean EU region of course.

Simply because of the amount of data which needs to be read?

If so - could you estimate roughly how long time it would take to read the entire library if you have 2x 64GB vs. 2x 128GB?

Or are we (also) talking responsiveness when f.i. choosing a different song/album while playing?

Just curious, why iPod Calssic (160G) can read the files so fast even though it is just a mechanical hard disk?

However MicroSD is a solid state drive, in theory it should be very much faster than mechanical hard disk.

File systematic(Ipod doesn't store its music as music or mp3 files) , OS , and other stuff. SSD is not that much faster than HDD irl , especially when we don't know the computing aspect of the X3 or X5 or the AK100

FYI, iPods are NOT fast due to their weak CPUs and other limitations. microSD is not exactly the same as what they call SSD these days. Processing speed depends on interface, power, firmware and lots of other things (e.g., on a desktop computer, a mechanical 3.5" SATA drive can be a TON faster that a microSDXC).
