On 13th of Febr my contact told me it was scheduled for half of March already, but stated I should take that with a large grain of salt (..) Maybe we should hold on to April for Europe just to be on the safe side ? :blink:

UK shops have had it as 31st of March and some 4th of April since when I started looking into it in early January.

I have the HP50 and the DT1350 and it isnt even a contest if someone cares about sound quality, as opposed to looks.

 

FWIW - I am selling my Fostex TH600 and Momentums, and keeping the HP50s.  That's how good the HP50s are.

I found this, so I think I'm going to take the plunge. Even if it's fake, the website offers price back guarantee. Let me be the guinea pig and I'll try it out, I'll post back when I get it with results, and you guys can make fun of me if it turns out fake.

This is very tempting..it is at a fraction of the cost. I really hope that it is real!

Even if you do get a real X5, doesn't make it less than a ponzi when you'll lure 50 suckers in your trail who'll get squat :rolleyes:

Are you guys serious to have even a speck of hope that X5 sold on aliexpress for $16 is real?!?  You are just buying a paper weight modeled after X5.  Don't even waste your money on that.

Give the Martin Logan Mikros 90 a consideration. Excellent isolation, no leakage, great looks, compact, good case, and very highly discounted nowadays. the sound will increasingly baflle you overtime  when you consider the price you got em.

 

Audiogarden removed the pre-order release date expectation 2 or so weeks ago (was March 3-5). Patience patience :) and in my case time to clean my tags/library

Sorry for barging in on this discussion like this...

 

Just interested in what is meant by ...will support for 512GB, 1024GB, etc. with future firmware upgrades...

 

I am not aware of MicroSDs which are 1TB in size...(SanDisk 128GB is the biggest to my knowledge)

 

Thanks.....

Means that when those do get manufactured, and they get tested at Fiio for compliance, adapt size adressing issues, if it is OK, then next firmware gives us green light. 256x2 ,  512x2 (dual slot). Although I bet X7 will be out before those come out, but will be great if they keep supporting the X5 by that time to accomodate the bigger capacity
