If their email updates are to be believed, they are getting the 1st batch this week and the 2nd batch "mid-april". Honestly, their update doesn't exactly add up with the info posted here directly from FiiO so taking it with a grain of salt at this point. I feel pretty comfortable most of us will have our X5s by the end of the month. Wait is killing me, too, but such is the pre-order experience!  I feel like the floodgates are about to open on retailers getting them in stock.

Quick question - when navigating the X5 in album view (ie, using tags, not file manager), is it possible to see the album cover art or does one just see the album title?

Exactly, some delays can always be expected with pre-orders. Honestly, I don't mind waiting a little big longer if it gives them more time to get the bugs out and release a more fully-ready product. I just wonder if we will get e-mails saying when it ships to us, or if it will just show up in the mail as a nice little surprise.

Do we expect the X3 to drop in price when the X5 is out?

post #5705 of 19528

If they don't get it shipped out to me in next 2 weeks I'm going to see if they got the HAP S1  available and buy that and use that instead. I need something that I can listen to the FLAC files with . I have a musical fidelity DAC but id rather something portable or something that I can access all the files better. I thought the FiiO X5 would be the answer

UPDATE from TekFX!!!!

 

http://miccastore.com/ - has X5 listed in stock NOW and will start shipping them on 4/2 :)

 

Also, those who have pre-orders from Headroom, don't cancel it since Headroom should have it in stock as early as 4/2 (available for quick shipment).

Maybe could you ask when they'll be available in Canada

I am curious about this as well! HDPHNS said that the production will be stopped for a couple of days due to updates to firmware and some parts of the X5...

Is anyone else from a different supplier getting the same information?

Oh, the pain. MP4Nation is lucky they were offering the free IEMs and 5% discount...I am convincing myself the phones and discount are worth waiting a little longer for :blink: 

post #5710 of 19528

The question is how much longer :bigsmile_face: Also just noticed that they no longer offer the free items. So for anyone now thinking of ordering, micastore is the better option in the US.

post #5711 of 19528
Worth it to me to wait for the free IEM's & 5% off, especially because I've still got to wait for the 128GB memory cards from Amazon anyway. No update from them on that and it's been about 3 weeks or so.

Just did, will let you know as soon as I find out...  Doesn't look like it's even listed on amazon.ca, uh?

Don't see any discount or free offer (assume some brainwavz headphones) in there anymore?  I guess promo is over :(

post #5714 of 19528
Yeah promo was FIIO X5 w/ free Brainwavz S1 ($60) earphones. Can probably still find the 5% off coupon online. Also the E12 is only $110 instead of $130 from them when you bundle it which is what I ended up doing.

Just ordered my X5. Thanks to all the reviewers and to James/Joe for updating the UI to organize by group -> album -> song. That was the clincher for me.

Upgrading from an iPhone 4s.
Hope it has good synergy with my PSB headphones.
