I hope it is LTE ready for us to download mp3's from it at very high speed!! (sarcasm) Seriously, if you need bluetooth or any fancy stuff, a smartphone might be your solution. X5 on the other hand will be a pure DAP with superb SQ. A beautiful screen and UI are just a bonus that adds user experience and somewhat a reminder that it is a high-end DAP, not just some fancy features that many sane person would think it might be better if it didn't exist at all.

While that may be true, there will soon be a successor of bluetooth soon. It's not confirmed, but with Tesla's methods of wireless technology, there'll surely be a successor. If someone decides to use it, that is. Anyway, the X5 doesn't need bluetooth. It hasn't been mastered yet and I rarely use Bluetooth connection anyway.

bluetooth is digital signal only, it defeats the purpose of having all those hi-fi component inside the x5, go get a cheap android phone instead, the sound quality will be pretty much the same with the most expensive bluetooth "dap" since the one doing the digital to analog converting will be the device at the receiving end.

the successor to bluetooth has been around for many years. WiFi.

 

kleer technology, used in the Sennheiser RS180, and DSSS, used in the RS220, are closer to audiophile soundquality than bluetooth will be for many years.

 

still, i don't feel that either of these has a place in a relatively low-cost DAP.

James I have a question;

 

I listen to my music only by folder view, I hope X5 will get it. Also gapless was not working on folder view on X3, do you think X5 will have gapless in any playing mode?

Eh, I'm not fond of WiFi Hotspots. Unless if it's free. I'm bored. popcorn.gif

you can use wifi the same way as bluetooth actually, so no need for a hotspot.

Bluetooth or NFC is not necessary for Hi-Fi DAP such as X5.

Personally, the most important for X5 is the sound quality and the battery life.biggrin.gif

Qualities for an audiophile DAP.

 

1. Needs to be below $400 US

2. Battery life needs to be at least $15-18 hrs (would be nice to be replaceable too)

3. Sound quality should be good & Volume should be loud enough.

4. DOES NOT NEED AN AMPLIFIER. (I find it absurd paying so high for a DAP & then pairing it with an amp)

    Never ever did cassette players & discman needed an amp for so called 'sound quality' .

5. Must be able to take a fall without damage. After all we are humans and nothing stays put in our hands.

6. MOST IMPORTANT - Must have built in storage of 500GB or more.

    I dont remember when MP3 came out, but I do know that somewhere around the years 1998-2000, I had MP3 of at least 5-8GB. It's past 12 years since and we are still having DAP giving us paltry storage. For me SD/Micro-SD are not what I like to use for accessing media. All DAPs take a processing time to scan them. The higher the storage of these cards, the more time it's going to take load. 

 

If one player provides this, my quest will be over.

I find your qualities unrealistic.

I think you're asking too much to be all in one.

The HiSound Studio series has 80 hours of playback time, is in your price range, and fits most of your requirements.

 

But 500GB's?

 

Just wondering if you are just laying out your dream unit or are asking for this now.

HiSound makes some of the most fragile devices on the market. They come with a very limited amount of disk memory and don't play many formats. They also NEED an amplifier for most full sized headphones, and even some IEMs. They are decent DAPs, but far from what they (Audiobreeder) wants according to his qualities.
