Ranges from $1 to $7 and up so find the best seller with the cheapest price. i would not spend more than $2 for these shipped tbh. haha

Sadly the Philippine ebay seller i got these from no longer sells them, cuz he shipped them fast and got them in pretty quick.

 

edit: Oh back to the X1 so the dac section of these can't be used with your computer like the FiiO E17, X3 or X5 correct??? That was what i got outta' it last time i read up on it. Kinda sucks if true but guess it makes sense on FiiO part strategy wise so it won't kill the sales of the X3s but still....... seems like a waste to not have that option/ optimize it tbh.

I for one find it difficult to get the dac to work with my windows. 8.1 notebook. With much agony the drivers can be installed but often misbehave. So not really a feature loss when looking at the X1. Fiio is also sending signals that the X3 is near the end of its support life.

Sfwalcer, I went out and bought an adapter to try on my ipod.  A local store, Discount Electronics, had a couple in stock for $7, which yes is more than I would have paid if I had bought off ebay, but I just didn't feel like waiting for shipping.  It actually does work with the fatter 60gig ipod video, with which I had my concerns.  It does angle the adapter slightly putting pressure, but if either the ipod or amp breaks, it's no big loss to me, just a little annoying, and perhaps slightly sad.  Either way, I'm glad you posted that picture, I hadn't thought about giving that a try, thankya!

 

Back on topic as well, I'm actually curious what kind of amp the X1 will be capable of docking with.  Will it be another variant of the E9, or something else?

Must be a Windows 8 thing, cause I haven't had a single dac prob on Win. 7. I think all Fiio was referring to is that the fw development should be done by years end. Gotta imagine by that time we should be hearing noise about a X3k.

So wait so you CAN use these X1s on your computer as a stand alone DAC correct??? If that's the case SWEET!!! If the dac on the X1 is as good as the one on the FiiO E17 then it's already good enough incentive to buy one based solely on its sexcee looks alone. ;)

No problemo meng. Glad you were able to find one of those adapters so fast and it worked with your ipod fatty. :  )

 

Now you got new lyfe from it which gives them much more authority cuz their internal amp is not the most powerful that's for sure. Makes the slight softer, wider staging sound of the 5th gen classic wolfson dac more punchy with better weight, but still not as clean/tight as the newer Cirrus Logic dac which can be a bit too lean and sterile at tymes.

He is probably referring to X3. As said by FiiO since the beginning, there won't be a USB DAC function ion the X1.

... T-Shirt? Wat? EDIT: Now looking through all of your videos, the ones with FiiO products have by far the most views. I would have expected the ATH-M50X unboxing to have the most... That's very intriguing. Is FiiO really that famous now? I guess I haven't noticed people talking about them outside of head-fi. Unless most of your views are from head-fi?

wait weren't your X1s the North American tour unit??? Don't think panda mans is a tour unit mo' like a review sample. :  )

 

Think that pretty much answers your question, unless yours was also a review sample. :blink:

 

Then you got screwed BIG TYME. : P

post #1888 of 7658

Wait, you guys didn't know that a new product from FiiO was actually their polo T-shirt?!?  X1 is just an addon accessory to that t-shirt :D

 

 

Ok, t-shirt was not part of a tour because FiiO was afraid the reviewers will not do a proper washing before sending it off to the next person :p

 

This was just a token of appreciation for long time supporters/reviewers :)

Hmm, I think you are right about back being plastic.  I thought it was all aluminum alloy like the sides and the front frame...  I better update my review right now lol!!!

 

... review updated, noted metal front/sides and silver finish hard plastic back.  It got a little colder in the house, so I can feel a temperature difference between colder front/sides of the aluminum frame and warmer plastic back.
