A little, friendly advice on bundle. I find the interconnect between X5 and E12 is way big and useless honestly. You designed the bundle to use them together, there could be a micro/tiny IC in between them, quite small profile as well as durable.

 

Apart from that, I have no complaints. I hope the price will be lower than purchasing both units separately.

 

That can probably be said to just about most IC out there actually. I'll really like to see some very short IC, like 1.5~2inch in length.

it is very hard to make short IC, unless it is fully hand make cable which will cost a lots. we will see if we can do that.

Aaaaah! Just after I preorder the standalone from BH! I knew I was moving too quickly. *sigh*

 

James, any hints as to who is stocking the bundle? Might have to call BH and update my order of they are going to have it...

Just didn't expect a stack again. But then again I will only use the X5 with (C)IEMs.

I own a T1 and HE-500 that would benefit from that but as I always use my rig at home I didn't think of people using the FiiO stack a home rig.

3)  Sony PHA-1

4)  NAD Viso HP50

Ok, this question might be quite stupid among Hi-Fi nerds, but ...... does it really pay off to use a Montblanc on top of the X5. Anyone tried with and without an extra amp?

Thank you.  What a great thing to see on my birthday.  Happy Birthday to Me

James,

 

To me that's ok.  You don't have to bundle it because not everyone needs it as the internals are pretty good anyway.  If you sell those separately I am willing to pay for it separately.

The Astell & Kern AK10 would make no sense pairing to the X5... the AK10 is mainly positioned with smart phone usage that do not have a decent DAC/AMP. The X5 already offers a great DAC/AMP combo.

I am not familliar with the other products that you mentioned...
As far as I know... The only think to be added to the X5 might be an external amp, and an amp only. (when using full size and demanding headphones)

I am in the same position... Pre-ordered in The Netherlands but they do not offer the combo yet...
