Yep. I don't need the DAC function so easy choice for me.

Do either have replaceable batteries? Thanks for your help!

From my understanding you can send it back to Fiio and they replace it for you. You can also buy the battery and do it yourself but I think you need soldering skills. 

 

*That is with X3, I think it will be the same with X1 but not sure.

The X3 has:

 

- more powerful amp
- coax output
- 8 GB internal storage
- DSD support
- and can be used as a USB DAC

Will this Micro SDHC card work well: Sandisk SD 32 GB MICRO CLASS10? I can get it for 20 euro here in Holland, will it perform well and how about putting the music on the card time wise?

I just placed a pre-order with B&H. Can't wait to get this thing. I have my hi res files all warmed up ready for it. Need to look at micro sd cards. Thinking maybe (2) 64 gigs to swap back and forth, to help keep the library from loading slowly and make things easier to find. What are others using in the X3 and X5?

But what about SQ? What are the differences?

there are now dozens of offers in taobao but i dont see the point of that since it end up around 160 usd incl.  the agent costs and the shipping that they offer. is they a way to bypass the agents? >.<

i live in china, so i've never used one of the agents. i assumed they were easier than that, or people wouldn't use them! it's almost exactly 100usd here in china, so if the target price of 100usd in the usa holds true you would be better off just waiting a week or whatever and buying from a US based seller.

One Sandisk 128gb and one Sandisk 64gb in my X5.

Formatted with the X5. No issues. Zero.

Yes, then you are cheap. Ordering from China will save you exactly 22 euro (shipping cost not included!) but you will get slapped by custom fees for more than that.
