Funniest comment of the day!!

Would have been even more fun had I not actually bought not one but both of these.... I blame James for 1) releasing the X3 too slow - that got me into AK100 and subsequently 120 and 2) releasing X5 too slow - that got me into 901 to get better sound than AK120!!



When should we actually expect X5 to hit the markets?

lol, we are target to different market and customer.  I think it will not a bid deal to you to buy an X3 or X5 because it is not so expensive.

James you're right. My curiosity would eventually got the better of me anyway LOL.

I had actually ordered an X3 and a pair of H-200 for my bro as his upcoming birthday gift. Even I owned these expensive DAP I still think X3 is the DAP to get for most people who don't live on Head-Fi. It is very user friendly, looks good, sound great, pocketable sized, and most importantly sensibily priced !

I have used the Sony PCM-M10 recorder as my DAP for over two years, now.

Proprietary sigma-delta DAC (a wee bit bright and very slightly grainy compared to the best possible SQ, 9/10 IMHO)
Headphone jack can be programmed as Line Out to bypass internal amp
Supports MP3 and WAV to 96/24
4GB of internal memory
MicroSD card reader supports 64GB and 128GB when reformatted to FAT
Files can be copied between internal and MicroSD - either direction
Gapless playback within a folder
UI is bug-free but designed for recording, not for playback (no playlists or other typical DAP features)
Folders can only be one layer deep (my folders have names like "Pink Floyd - The Wall")
Built like a tank
Mass production pricing - a massive bang for the buck
It's beautiful
And it's a recorder!

But I'm looking forward to the X3 and X5 because I would really love to enjoy similar SQ and pricing in a true DAP with a playback-featureful UI.

;-)

What's the size of the X5 or if someone could direct me to a post besides the first one that includes all the info?
post #698 of 19481

Well, pretty much nothing is revealed yet, so I don't think any of us (except James himself) can help you on this question.

Cheers.

 

Just wanted to check. If it has a small form factor like the AK series, I'll keep a look out for the X5, otherwise, I'll pass.

I don't think it will be as small as AK100 but it will be def. not on the level of DX100 / R10 or HM DAPs.

I have heard rumors that it'll be similar in size to the IPC.... but sure any validity to this tho!

I presume the IPC stands for the iPod Classic?
