Hey guys, just curious - why does the EQ not work in DAC mode? Not a big deal that it doesn't, I was just wondering the technical reason.. I'm still learning how everything works.

When there was no UK availability of ZX1s (well a total of 18 units) I switched and bought X5 AND DX90. Be interested in your findings.

Besides new FW release, will USB-DAC driver software (Driver-for-X5-USB_DAC) be upgraded as well?

Speaking of drivers:

I'm almost done writing a little batch file for the manual installation of the asio drivers, and i'll see if i can also make it install the other drivers.

it can also uninstall the asio drivers.

Does anyone have a quick suggestion they have been liking for a slightly warm IEM paired with the X5, ideally in the $100-$200 range for use as a backup pair? Often for rock music, but really use them for a wide variety and not too fussy given the budget. Considering the RE400s, but throwing a feeler for any others folks have actually used with the X5 and been pleased with.

Is that an X5 in your pocket, or or you just happy to see me.....

(sorry couldn't resist)

obviously it is a portable bible. He is not happy to see you. He simply has Jesus in his pants. Way off topic. Be back later while I burn in hell for a bad joke :)

Seriously considering ordering an X5 soonish.  My only question is would it be worth it if the cans I'd using are the UE6000 and Vsonic VC1000?  I like both pairs of headphones, but I'm curious if I would need to buy a much higher end headphone to get a big benefit from owning an X5.  Thanks!

You're in trouble; I was laughing at the joke and my pants caught on fire. :evil:

Sorry, but even if you'd reply in Dutch I wouldn't understand what it means :blink: 

Sorry for my ignorance, I know my M2Tech Evo/FooBar2000 is using kernel streaming and I'm happy with that. Something made you want to alter the current driver software and you're putting some effort in it already although it has just been released, that makes me curious. Doesn't the current situation/software meet your expectations? What do you want to achieve and will it be available to FiiO (X5 users) as well and what would be the benefit?

Yes. The X5 would make your current Headphones sound better due to the superior DAC and AMP in the X5. Every headphone i've tried has seen an improvement.

Thanks.  I really like that thought of having a portable DAP and DAC/Amp all in one, especially for $350.  I'm certainly not opposed to buying a higher end pair of headphones in the future, I just don't really want to spend the money on them if I'm shelling out for the X5 especially since I have 2 decent pairs already.
