The more I look at this thread, the more afraid I am that my bank account is going to be $350 lighter.

It's been my experience that hitting the subscribe button on Head-Fi is about the equivalent of hitting the Buy Now button anywhere else

ok that made me laugh because it is true. The only exception is the calyx m. The information I read here about their treatment of overseas customers, at least responses to customers turned me off. So it actually helped me save money for once.

This is what I was looking for, and I just got it from Japan: Oyaide HPC-MSS. 3cm cable, about 3.5 inches end-to-end, sold in Japan for around $20.

$20 for a short IC is kind of expensive, but far cheaper than many 'hand-made' stuff and it is small and very well built. Just the right size as IC in a portable rig.

Head-Fi'ers in the UK can pre-order the X5... orders will be sent out 15th March.

 

I saw the X3 fronting a £7k system yesterday (System: FiiO X3 >Quad Elite Pre-Amp>Quad GMP Mono-Block Amps(pair)>KEF R700 Speakers) and it sounded very impressive... knowing these guys they probably upgrade the X5 to a £10k Naim system.

 

if you're  interested here's their website, these are great guys to deal with & customer-service is top notch.

Can't read a lick of that screen but I liked the image they had posted... Might try one as my current Mono Price Interconnect... is rather big

Though not as short and elegant as that HPC-MSS cable, I guess I can always use FiiO cable from E18:

Meh I had one of those die on me when I got my First E5 >.> but it went through hell and back. 6 months of a high School Public School bus...

An italian distributor just updated the pre-order page saying it will be sent out within March, 31st. After checking some UK sites, I have some doubts but I will keep you up to date :)

What was the original deal with James of FiiO again for what would happen if the X5 doesn't get sent out?

 

I know it involves James streaking but not sure if it was a date set to have the X5 ready for sale or when it would get sent out :bigsmile_face:

A Canadian site shows expected stock on the 24th of March....

An Australian site has also updated to say "Last week of March".

I was able to pre-order from a US site today, but they have no release date posted. I think it was just put up today as I've been searching for (legitimate) sites for pre-orders for a couple weeks. It's the only US site I've found with taking orders. One other says they expect April 1st to have them in stock, but they aren't taking orders. Will update if I get an expected ship date.
