I think he'd notice them hacking away if his bag was made of thick leather.

If James & his Fiio's team manage to release a flawless X5 yet outperforms the performance in the current Top End (Ivy league) DAPs such as DX100 (HDP-R10), HM-901, AK120 at half of their price tag, then he will make history & change the entire landscape of the Top End DAPs forever. beerchug.gif

 

In fact, we always try to avoid competing with other directly, so the most pressure is when can we release X3 / X5. I think there are very few DAPs is around $400, and you guys already known I am listening to everyone in here and we known what we can and what we can't. 

 

now almost 90% feedback in China is positive and we are busy in manufacturing enough X3 and amps to the market,  it is not easy to us because most chinese audiophile trend to buy the most expensive audio device,

X5 is just a little bigger than iPC. so the size is not a big problem, we have not the traditional to make something like brick .

I'm betting official resellers will be able to show you, but we're months away from that moment. It's best to be patient at this moment ;)

Is there any chance of Fiio becoming a publicly traded company? Some can only dream...

Why the heck would you want that?! Assuming Fiio becomes popular enough and sales figures are high enough to go public, can Head-Fi members afford to outbid a large company who would use Fiio to essentially stamp their products to claim that it performs as well as Fiio even if by that point they either changed all design directives if not changed the engineers?

You know what other companies were (temporarily) saved by enthusiasts? Lamborghini and Bugatti. Guess what - their enthusiasts don't have the deep pockets nor did they reach out to a wider market. VW had both and enthusiasts clamour over how the Lambo isn't Italian in feel anymore and how ridiculous the W16 is compared to a Quad Turbo V12 that can actually stand toe to toe with a stock F40 on a track with its A/C running.

 

Best way to help Fiio isn't for it to go public but simply support the products. You don't need to buy everything, or upgrade too soon either.

@ JamesFiiO

Do you know what the output impedance of the headphone amplifier will be? (approximately)

the only amp which output impedance is bigger than 1 ohm is our E9/E09K. even in the future so don't worry about it.

Super! L3000.gif

Thanks for a quick reply also.

James, will X5(or X5 in a later firmware update) be able to read other tags, not only ID3?
