Maybe, maybe not.

 

The ZX1 has plenty still going for it, judging by the SQ reports of owners.

 

It's all good.

 

Plenty of choice and an expanding awareness, in the marketplace, of the existence of DAPs with superior SQ to mass-market iDevices, means things will continue to improve, on all fronts.

Well said, so much 'which is better, x vs z'. The more good sounding devices at different price points the better for the market and consumer as a whole.

I totally agree,i just think at that price point the x5 is a steal!comparing it with the price of others,to my ears it might sound better,to others not.There are some great new products out there!

What's so good about this hobby is, everything comes down to personal preference and there are no bad sounding daps. :beerchug:

Darn why is everything so expensive in the UK ....

post #4417 of 19490
VAT, targeted tariffs, and import fees definitely don't help.

I plays in sequence and doesn't play two 1's and so on but it is odd and I am trying to figure it out. 

 

I don't have an X5, but I've had something similar happen to me with duplicate files on a Rockboxed Clip+.  Did you use a Mac to copy an entire folder of flac/wav files from a OS X file volume onto the micro SD card?  Mac OS X creates a bunch of ._filename hidden file for each actual file, and some systems like Rockbox will interpret the ._filename file as the actual file, and depending on the database/file browser, it may show 2 copies of the same song.

Yes but the same cards have worked on everything else. I am not going to redo my cards.

Yep and I did indeed take a risk with the S-mod. I was skeptical after the letdown with the RWA unit. But I made that purchase based on the opinion of someone I really trust. So far his ears hasn't let me down in terms of my own purchases ;)..

I have just received an email telling me that EA Audio are taking orders for the X5 at £289.99.

Me too. But at that price, I'm holding off. That's not $350 even allowing for VAT.

I was hoping for something around £250 too. 10 pounds short of 300 is kinda pushing it for me.

As with just about everything, I fully expect 350 USD to translate to at least 350 EUR, or even more.  That's just the way the world is.

Why is it like that though? I mean do the products come to UK via USA? Might be a stupid question but I just dont understand why everything needs to be much more expensive in europe compared to other regions.
