I wouldn't bet on the clip, it's more the size of the iPod Mini (two versions of it, based on either concept), but I'm looking at it more as an AK100 with low impedance and a wheel for navigation instead of a touchscreen. And as much as I like the AK100's volume knob, I'm not too hot about spending the same money that will get me an X5, X3, and X1 set (I haven't heard it with my IEMs yet though).

-B- for me, probably much better grip.

I think your sights are set a bit high. It's will be nice to have a competent HiDef player so more people can experience it. I think FiiO will become a big player now that they've expanded to DAPs that will be accepted by the mainstream consumer. Seems they have the resources to pull it off.:bigsmile_face:

My vote goes to A.:wink_face:  I think a clip is a bad idea and useless as it's already small and it will be too bulky with a clip.

A looks better to me.   Any reason (aside from space I spose) not to go for the cheaper and more available sdhc cards instead of Micro?  128 gig cards are already available and prices are finally coming down.

 

Edit to add : Gapless working properly out of the box please!

A clip on clip, if you will, would be a nice accessory for those that have keys in one pocket and a smartphone in the other.

Nice concept. I like both a and b.

I would like a clip as well, but an add on one.

+1 for design A but no built into / fixed clip please... I don't want the player to add weight or space when it is not in use.

And also, can you guys please implement an apple 30 pin LO? Would come in handy for a lot of people wanting to upgrade from their iPods.

I don't find it necessary... All or most amp comes with a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable. The X1 will have a 3.5mm jack LO wouldn't that be more simply than 30-pin? In fact, I think it's patented.

Yeah, not sure what I was thinking there...

A parametric EQ would be cool. Another thing that would be excellent is a flat back. This would allow for flush piggybacking to an amp if more power is needed. I love the look of design A.

 

 

This could have potential for greatness. I'm pretty sure Sandisk had no idea how popular their players would be, and I'm more than confident you can make a better sounding player for the price :)

Another vote for design A.  If Fiio keeps this up, I'm going to have to get a second job.

post #30 of 2284

A vote for design A too! A parametric EQ on A will be a lot less cramp i believe.

 

And a +1 for sdhc cards too!
