FiiO products tend yo be on the warm side of things. But yeah I agree: X3 vs AK120 in terms of features is pretty impressive considering the X3 is 1/4 the price.
Are u sure it will have 2 DAC? Because James didn't give any information related to it. He mentioned the DAC but not dual, it will be mono. He also mentioned dual microsd card slots but not built in memory. Maybe you are mistaking these 2 informations?
No dual DAC in X5.
This is what Fiio James said to me:
The battery of X5 may be 3500mAh, which bigger than the 3000mAh of X3. but the battery life may just a little longer than X3 because the PCM1792 consume far more power than WM8740 and the high quality OP will consume more power too.
The sound quality will be better than X3, in fact, dual WM8740 will be cheaper and consume less power but we believe one PCM1792 is better than dual 8740. just our opinion
