It was mentioned in the X3 thread.

 

Basically its being skipped. 

 

4 is not a good number in Chinese.

LOL - I was just kidding!

 

It's like BMW have never made a 4-series (that I know of), even though they've made 1,3,5,6,7 series.

 

I knew there would never be a player in between the X3 and it's big brother (regardless of the big brother being called X5, X6, 7 or whatever), but was just being mischievous, to see if anyone would believe me about a 'middle' player!  wink_face.gif

BMW is about to come up with 4 series. It will be basicly 3 series coupe/convertible but they will call it 4 series. Means also we will have M4. However this is really way out of topic, I prefer keep my mouth shut now happy_face1.gif

Yeah, let's just keep quiet and wait 'til Fiio release the X3.5, then    tongue.gif

 

 

 

 

On a serious note, I'd really love to see twin SD card slots on the X5. It's going to sound great with .flac / .alac / .ape / .wav / .lwma files, so to be able to have a large memory (e.g. 128gb x 2) would be fantastic.

I kinda remember reading somewhere that the X5 depended on the X3's success; but what if many of the people waiting for the X3, upon hearing about the X5 coming out this close, decide to wait, doubled price notwithstanding?

it does't matter, we all know the next iPhone will be better, should we keep the money and  wait the next generation ? we plan to develop x1, x3, x5 target to different customers. so it depend on our customer . don't forget we have so many kinds of headphone amp and

 

E6 still the best sales in quantity although E12 is the best in SQ and build quality.

Hey James, this may be a goofy comment, but I like you, I like your company, I like your company's philosophy, and I like your company's products. So, here's hoping for the best for you and Fiio!

My hunch is that for those who prepared to spend that amount of money for X5, they would still buy X3. They can sell their X3 later when they are going to buy X5.

X5, for over $300, may be out of the budget of many people who want to buy a mp3 with a price similar to ipod. They may want to spend more money rather for the their headphone.

So, I think FiiO still needs produce a better version of X3, something like X03k.

It's like there is HD800, but people are still very happy with HD600/HD650, or even HD598.

X5 is a better version of x3, 03k can come way later when fiio feels that the x3 can no longer compete,  just like what they did with the e7

Plan to develop X1 too? I love FiiO, they cover every region in the scala smily_headphones1.gif

This X5 really got me thinking.

Must be on the pair with HM901/AK100/DX100/and Tera Player.

If Fiio can achive that type of sound that will be a hit, after all Fiio mentioned that X5 will be the best they ever created.

Actually I can only afford the X3 right now, but I've decided to wait for the X5 since I can afford it by then without actually breaking the bank (account) but I'd still want to get my hands on the X3 for a long enough listen.

ProtegeManiac: So you are going to wait half year for X5, but what if Fiiio announce in november X7? Will you wait another six months? Dont take it bad, but I never uderstood this behaviour of "new model coming soon, I must wait"

post #75 of 19490

if fiio announces x7 , I will wait for it , because I don't exactly need or drooling all over X3 and X5 , I am still interested, doesn't mean I will just grab whatever comes first
