Just caught up on this one.
So yet another boombox? :(
I'm wondering if I should wait for some reviews, see if anyone thinks that neutrality can be achieved with a bit of tweaking. Or just go for a colourfly C3 which are now surfacing on ebay for about the same price of an X1.
If it was done through the FW rather than hardware (like tweaking the op amps on the output stage), then there's a chance somebody will hack it. DX50 has a sound unlocked unofficial FW for example. In any case I wouldn't dismiss the X1 without listening to it - the X3 had some feeedback about being warm, but when I used it with my ASG-1's, the treble was a lot better than on my non-Wolfson SGS3 (I haven't heard the Wolfson version, but my T-mobile unit kinda sucks on that dept)
