I think X1's estimated MSRP is 100 USD.

According to James from FiiO, it's 100 USD... And I should be able to grab one a month after the release... I guess I have found my next year's b'day present biggrin.gif pretty sure I will have to pay around BND 150 - BND 180 though since E12 others price is USD130, I will have to pay for BND 198 T.T

Would anyone still like a joystick (ala iriver 1xx series) instead of the usual touchpad stuff anymore? Or has that gone the way of the dinosaur as well?

While you can turn 360 degree anywhere you like... But if there's too many bottoms on the screen... It's hard to navigate IMO

Can't disagree with this. It can get a bit hard to navigate if there are too many bottoms on the screens (especially if they are naked) and one can find himself fiddling with the joystick a bit more than usual instead of playing his music.

On a more serious note, yeah, joysticks are a thing of the past - they were popular for a short period on some devices and phones like Sony Ericsson but are generally less reliable and develop issues with time.

I remember I was using a very awful system control using a joystick... I give up using it after 30min? If X1 seriously employ this joystick, I will straight away forget about purchasing a X1 next year and live ever after happily with iPhone while waiting for another high-end budget friendly DAP. I believe James won't use the joystick on X1 though, his a GENUISE man, he won't biggrin.gif

How about a touch input that isn't circular so wouldn't infringe on Apple's patent? Just to scroll through lists up and down, like a vertical strip or something like that. Then the rest of the interface could be controlled with the other buttons. But I agree, mechanical scroll-wheels are prone to mechanical wear and breaking after some time.

I definitely agree with you. I think seeing a touch pad that the Meizu M6 used in the past will be pretty nice on X1 design. Please James think about it.;)

Just still to the click wheel. It's easy to implement and the majority will like it or will like it
post #237 of 7658
Touchscreen is good if it will still be 100USD & sound quality is still the priority. If not then, I am up for the wheel. I just want a good DAP for audiophile at that price range.

Thanks.

currently i am having dx50 and clip+. just dreaming for a clip+ form factor with better audio quality. i could care less with touchscreen, album art, scroll wheel etc. will fiio just build something as simple and straightforward as clip+ but with a good dac?
post #239 of 7658
i am okay with the current form factor seems to be compact enough to compete with day clip zip or the c3

According to James @ FiiO, he said that the FiiO X1 will be a complete step up from almost all DAP at $100 and it will be using WM7840 DAC which is a very high-end DAC. :)
