hope so , we have to control the margin for us and our agents, at the same time , not to control the the cost for the parts, that is why we can provide the first $100 high resolution DAP in the world , with individual DAC and headphone amp.   


James, AMAZING job with X1!!!  I thought to give it a week of testing before posting my review, but last night when I opened a box and start playing with it, I couldn't put it down and rushed with my first impression review and comparison to X5 (a few pages up, also in my signature link).  As you can see, the only "negative" comment I had was a black silicone skin where I couldn't see charging light.  Everything else is PERFECT!!!  And it pairs up so well with E11k ;)

Just don't let your gf see it, cause you will end up back with your X3 while she will take away your X1.  Of course, it will be a step up from your pink mp3 player, but trust me - you want X1 :)  Actually, just spray paint black silicone skin with pink color to hide it from her :p

I have been thinking about upgrading from my Clip+.

 

Perhaps this is the answer:regular_smile :.

X5 is warmer? or X1?

Oh yes, PenonAudio would be great too. Prices are in USD, so for me, it would be a bit more in CAD, but no tax :D Plus, shipping is pretty damn quick. I ordered a pair of Havi B3 on the 13th, shipped on the 16th and it's already in Canada.

I thought the whole thing with the X1 was that it was designed to be warmer than both the X3 and X5?
