I ordered from Headroom also, and was told at the time I was in the 1st batch as well.   I just shot them an email asking if they have any updated information as to when they may receive their inventory and ship out pre-orders.   Once I hear something from them I'll post it.

 

Thanks

Mike

Awesome, thanks! I also emailed TekFX asking if they resell to other stores (there is a reseller option on their site, so I'm thinking/hoping they are just the main US hub for FiiO, and they ship out to all the other stores)

Cross your fingers!

Sounds like they do redistribution maybe?

I ordered from E1 personal audio singapore. Any idea when they'd receive it? They told me you guys would deliver their order on 27 March but all I see is red fusion one for singapore. Red fusion one does not list E1 as it's retailer for fiio. Is there some sort of miscommunication?

Anyone heard any updates from Mp4Nation? The distro Fiio sent to in HK is the sole distributor and Mp4 is the only authorized seller there so *assuming* that means they will be the shop to get the units...

Gotta learn some patience.

Guys guys guys! I got a response from TekFX when I asked if they sold to HeadRoom!

"We do sell to headrooms." - I hope they mean the actual HeadRoom website and not just "in general" headrooms!!

 

I emailed them again.. wow I am probably bugging the crap out of them.. woops!

Breathe deep, guys!  You are all going to have heart attacks! :blink:

Here is the response I received from headroom

 

Hey Mike,
 
Thanks again for your pre-order.  It sounds like the X5 should be arriving very soon.  However we are not exactly sure when they will be arriving in our shop.  We hope they will be here in the next week or so, but beyond that I'm afraid I don't have any other "official" information from Fiio about this.  I hope this helps and let's cross our fingers in hope they arrive sometime next week.  
 


Sincerely,

I wouldn't exactly be getting in line to buy the new X-5 until they actually resolve the issues with the X-3. It almost seems like reviewers are paid by FIIO to review their products. I know they would never send one to me to test because well they might not want to hear what I have to say if the unit was a flop like their X-3 model. When the new unit comes out I will be asking some serious questions about file management of large complete albums ..... Which is where the X-3 turned out to be a complete failure....

Those are some very serious accusations. If you can provide proof these reviewers are getting paid that's one thing, but most of these people are highly respected members of this community and would never accept a bribe like that.

How is the support for embedded cover art? I have all my album art embedded inside the FLAC files themeselves and have a single folder.jpg as backup in the folder of the album.

Yep, I do recall seeing them in those MP3 files that have embedded album art. Beats having multiple jpg files per folder! :D
