Thank you! That's one in the plus column anyway, I can't be bothered navigating by genre or anything - I generally know what I want to listen to.

Yep, lot of talk about 6000 song limits on tags. I also know what album I want, so like navigating to it!  Didn't have a choice in the good old LP days so I guess it sticks with you. Youngsters eh, don't listen to an album through. No wonder groups don't make Dark Side Of The Moon's anymore:biggrin:

Hi I'm running the X5 + E12 and my HD 598's sound great. Not as good as my HP100 but that a more bass overall sound. I hope this helps you. smily_headphones1.gif

Well, it's binary. Even if you would prefer the opposite, surely it doesn't tax your brain too much.

Russian pals have installed 1.27b, so far so good, no strong issues found.

I hear you, lol. To be fair there's an awful lot of albums these days that have no thread running through them. They're more just collections of nice songs.

Thanks, this is a help. All the X5 really has to do is drive my M-100's on it's own but allow me to connect my E18 (or buy E12) in amp mode and drive my Sennheiser HD 650's.

I still can't find any comparison between the DAC in the X5 & the E18.

Dude, Fiio will seriously have big problem if it doesn't sound better than Note 3...

Well of course but in my particular rig the phone is a transport only. I use the DAC in the E18.
post #7738 of 19524

I had tried e18 as a dac before with my ie8s and all i could say is that x5 is way better overall

post #7739 of 19524
Common guys, is there a way to disable that long press volume key skipping tracks?
It annoys the hell out of me!

Sorry for the delayed reponse - on Holiday right now - not checking the forums as much!  To answer your question, I have NOT yet had the opportunity to try the X5 as a USB DAC - so I can't compare it to the E17 yet - but I plan to do such when I get back home.  I am confident the X5 should be as good if not better than the E17 as a DAC - they may have different sound signatures though.

 

Cheers,
