The FiiO X1 Discussion and Help and Support Thread |192K/24B|100mW | LO | inline remote - Page 124

post #1846 of 7691

Hehe, it appears EA Audio (UK) is accepting pre-orders. So I think I know where some of next months budget is going. :D

 

As for the SD card, I understand Class 6 is sufficient and my question is: Will the X1 support the full 128GB out of the box or is that expected in future firmware upgrades and I'm better off getting a 32 or 64GB when I get the DAP?

 

P.S.: Now to find some closed back over the ear phones for the office/home! :L3000:

I guess I'll add these pics.

 

I also have a Colorfly C4 on hand I guess. And I should be able to get a Astell Kern or whatever Hifiman is out there. 

^

Does anyone have like a iPhone 4S that they can compare the X1s with??? Would love to see how it matches up with it since the 4S seems to be the new standard for Apples new audio quality these days. Already know that power wise it ain't gonna cut it but would also like to know how that compares to the X1 as well.

 

Thanks for all the reviews and hardwork ya'll, appreciate it!!! :beerchug:

 

C'mon FiiO hook a brother up with a review sample please. :ksc75smile:

@^ No, personally (and subjectively, maybe), X1 is not better than the 4s. 4S has better resolution, better imaging, better bass impact, overall better sounding. Please remember this is just a super value US$99 player biggrin.gif, and for the price, it sounds pretty good actually.

Do you believe that the E11k is really worth the extra ~$75 (amp + stacking kit) when paired with the X1?

well, E11K really adds bass punch, X1 missing sometimes. With DN-2000 it's sounding really nice. is it worth $75 (you can really use it without stacking kit)? IMHO yes, but in sound, everyone decides about prices itself. For me, $1000 DAP could be reasonable purchase, if it sounds good, for my GF — $100 headphones is "nope, it's too expensive"

Looks like you and a little time with the X1. Can I ask whether you directly compared with iphone 4S or are comparing from memory and what HP/IEM you used?

Can't wait until "grandpa" X7 will join the family :)

Currently I'm struggling to see how this moves the game on from what we've had for years with the Clip+.

More storage? Nope, still only one micro SD slot.

Browse by album artist???

The form factor seems huge for what it is. Why so big and yet only one storage slot?

I believe so :)

 

You go to Category, then you choose 'Artist'. Then if you have multiple albums by the same artist (as long as the artist name stays consistent), it will allow you to then click on the artist name and see the number of albums you have and then a choice to click 'all songs'.

 

If this is what you are looking for. Then yes, it has it.

 

Along with EQ, gapless playback etc.

Weird how such a stack only costs $200 or even less if you bought it in the USA. 

 

Such value, much wow, many joys, real happy. WOW

I do have an iPhone 4S but it isn't exactly in operation

 

I'll go off very general memory. 

 

iPhone 4S has slightly better mid timbre, but the X1 is slightly warmer there.

 

The 4S may sound a bit thin at times due to its orientation on clarity and detail (generally, not saying that it is overly clear or anything). whereas the X1 is more on a slightly thick sound. 

 

Stil working out the transparency part for both. I rarely use the 4S for audio playback.

I'll be awaiting it. 

 

:tongue:

 

I liked the X5 but it has a bit of a treble and general sound sig that makes it hurt a bit. 

 

Hope the X7 is like the E12 in sound :tongue:

@bowei006: Fiio hasn't implemented Album Artist yet, so I'd be surprised if it's implemented on X1. What you're describing is Artist. I think @technobear was hoping the X1 would group by Album Artist over Artist so you wouldn't get songs from the same album grouped under different artists. Make sense? I'd like this, too, since I've got a lot of albums where I've had to manually change Artist tag to accomplish this.

Gotta try it!  I assume silicone skin "spacer" helps in keeping the rubber band from pushing on the wheel?  Upper band doesn't matter since volume control is disabled with LO.

 

Spacibo za photki :)

Or a rich grandpa who invested wisely in silicone valley high tech stocks, and ended up with a custom Android interface :D

@twister6: Man, I don't want my DAP to sound like an old man 😜. I hope old grandpa X7's gotten a lot of exercise and eaten well!
