Youre not trying to sell higher margin DAPs....

I might be biased as I don't have an X3 or X5. Just... Cowon i9+, Cowon C2, Cowon J3, ipog 5.5g rockbox'd, Colorfly C3, SGS4, Clip Zip rockbox'd... I'll be reviewing against those, though. If that helps. cool.gif

Comparo btwn Clip Zip and Kogan will do...thanks man...cheers

Glad to hear that James! So I'm assuming that means the battery life gets a slight extension then?

How is everyone's experience with the battery life? (its a priority for me, and from what I've read its already a solid device in terms of SQ) Seems like I'm on the road to owning another FiiO device lol

That is a ridiculous comment as they are not at all. The shop and site arent even related anymore and the shopowner left the review business.

Also, did anyone feel that the X1's bass had that much extra weight to it as Lieven suggested?


I agree with him on that.

Is there any way to force restart the X1? It was working fine the past couple days but today after I loaded more music onto the sd card, I went to select an album and it suddenly froze. The screen is still on and the LED is blue. After that I ejected the SD card, and it was so ******* hot it burnt my thumb. Connecting the x1 via usb into my computer doesn't seem to do anything either. It looks like I will have to just wait and let the battery die if I can't force restart the unit. I tried holding a few different combinations of the power button, back button, and middle button to no avail.

 

Hopefully this is a one time fluke issue but I have a feeling it is the SD card I got on Ebay for $11 :/ 

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/191271610520 ->This is the listing and buyer I got it from. There are many available. I wonder if anyone else has had this problem. Now my laptop isn't even reading the sd card when I plug it in with the adapter....... I guess not all SD cards are created equally...

It appears my X1 is taking a trip from HK to Japan courtesy of FedEx, but is still slated for delivery at my home (Italy) tomorrow whithin noon, I wonder if it will make it.

Anyway, since I'm upgrading from a Sansa Zip what will happen if I just remove the microsd from Sansa and put it in the X1? Should it work? I don't have another one atm and anyway I want to keep that one in the Sansa after I get another one for the Fiio.

I did the same and my micro sd card works fine with the X1

Put a needle in the little hole under the power button

A free and clear "chargeback" is almost certainly in your future. As stated, they should not have charged you so far apart from shipping. You asked for a cancellation which is reasonable and they refused.

The chargeback is almost certain to follow in your favor.

Huzzah! Just received my X1 in the post today fro EA Audio. So if you're in the UK, you should be getting your X1s soon. :D

 

Now just to wait for the uSD card to turn up (hopefully only a few days) and to find somewhere to trial some HP50s and Momentums.... :rolleyes:

The burn in has commenced on the big brother and commentary will follow after I've got some listening time in. I can say this right off the bat...The Ap100 drives the Havis very well straight from the HO and I don't think I will need the Sap-5 at all.

 

looking forward to your impressions - i'm contemplating on which DAP to get - and you have both that's under my radar :)
