Now who wants to see
Fiio X3 , FiiO X5, Colorfly C4 Pro, Astell Kern AK 120 shootout?

Who would not? I heard you are adding something more than that (theory) in the shootout }smily_headphones1.gif xD

I've been in conversation via PM with a member who's opinion I highly trust on these forums, he received an X5 tour unit today. His first impressions more than promising has somewhat perked my interest quite a lot for X5.

I'll be watching closely as the days unfold.

Yeah.
Im trying to add a few more to the shootout. But they may just be proxy comparisons in the end if I cant personally get them. I wont name the units but other members of my review group have the "missing" DAPs.

Obviously iPod with various strap on amps (and by itself) will be included

Thanks Joe. Yeah I figured it out after James posted his reply..

Is an iPod with a strap-on still an iPod? deadhorse.gif

Wouldn't it be great if some experienced Head-fi er started a thread for DAPs just like Joker or Clios' IEM comparisons.. Now there is a challenge for someone...  It could even go as far as recommended IEMs for said DAPs .. Wonder if manufacturers would get on board with review samples.......Nah probably not for fear of negative comparisons....

 

Early impressions of X5 seem really good...

This device is gonna be good and bring lots of quality for a very good price. I am all in, waiting for Eu release.

Same.

With the X3 release, audiogarden.fr was one of the first to have it in stock, so i'm keeping my eyes on their website...

Well, don't expect something until March :happy_face1: I think, FiiO couldn't value their experience from X3 better. This device might be the audiophile bargain of the century (after Clip+ of course lol). I really see well prepared well studied package there. Every detail is already polished and ready.

seems like a solid dap

 

would be nice to see what mods ppl come up with

 

now someone should really do a x5/x3/ak1x0 comparison

Too bad, we probably won't reach those mods in Eu :frown:

with the ak240 ridiculously overpriced, theres either the x5 or the calyx M that i am looking forward to

 

so far the calyx M seems like a good choice too, i've used the Calyx desktop dac and the build quality was pretty nice
