Don't rockbox FiiO's DAP! I mean, I don't see any negative point of FiiO UI except for the animations but I believe FiiO will improve it sooner or later xD I call James the next generation of Steve Jobs xD

新年快乐 JamesFiiO biggrin.gif

You always include your lovely apple in most of your comments just like our fiio imitates apple cans to theirs .......as told by you;) btw looks like you had learned chinese so quick that you wanted to use your chinese ver.of X5?biggrin.gif jk!!!

And nobody can deny that steve jobs's ipods are roots to many other mp3 manufacturers till now even after a decade,still going strong. This is just like how sony held the market of Walkmans inthe 80's and 90's, same way apple holding the mp3 market since 200x's.Whereas TOTL AK,HFM,HSA daps and medium range daps like COWON,iBasso and cheapo daps sansa have their own style of designing for that matter...IMHO.

I admit that I like Apple's UI and design, but other than that, nothing much. I do take some good positive point of Steve Jobs as the example xD 

 

I was supposed to be studying Chinese now, but given my hate towards writing and reading Chinese, I give up studying it after my primary graduation, so I'm 50% banana with not-so-good English xD 

 

FiiO DAPs shall soon replace Apple iPods :D [at least, in Head-Fi world]

I see. Actually i was kinda joking but good to know you know chinese atleast 50%. biggrin.gif

You know what, SQ wise both are different leagues I would say, with their features and pricepoints.

I doubt. If Apple were to design and manufacture an exclusive hi-res DAPs like no camera,no wifi,no gps,no games,no calender,no contacts, universal standard micro USB connector against 30 pin dock/lightning connectors, etc., , be true to your heart, who's gonna take the #1 slot? Especially with UI and battery life of ipods. Apple started their mp3 player segment even iphone models with wolfson as their dacs, so they have professional footprint in hi-quality sound as well and its not a godzilla challenge to add a pro hp amps into their design if at all they want to enter pro dap world. We are fortunate to have Apple left this area of pro dap market which is why we are witnessing chinese manufacturers here as the cost to materials,manufacturing, labor etc are so cheap there than any place on this planet. The other one they left orphaned are the IEMs that we almost see 1/4th of the global iem market under the slogan "designed for apple" from reputed and cheap brands.

Hi James! Just wondering, will the X1 sound like the X5? If no, in this early stage how can you compare the two? Can the X1 also drive higher OEMs? I really want the X5 but this is more portable and I'm a 2 stack rig guy.. Thanks man!

Can't agree more with the SQ xD FiiO's price is far reasonable priced as well! I would say both share the excellent build quality / materials. I can see FiiO's packaging getting better and better as well: FiiO E7 and E07K as example. @JamesFiiO, is packaging kind of a marketing strategy? xD

Haha the fact that I am into audiophiles' "toy", my parents is really interested in seeing a Chinese review from me. Kind of dissapoint them ATM though redface.gif

X1 may have more bass but not so transparent like X5. and the output power should big enough to drive some higher OEMs , anyway, it has almost the same output power as AK100 but bigger than iPC and all walkman. just for reference

yes, the packaging is part of marketing because now we have to take care both online and offline market.

Thanks for the feedback! So maybe a good amp + the X1 will do the drive.. do you think the E12/DIY can maximize and put the best out of the X1?  im really getting more excited with this!! but still thinking about getting the X5 though...

why don't you just buy X5 ? sorry , we think the SQ should not be the same from enter level to the flagship because different people need different SQ.

Hmmmm.. size preference maybe... don't worry its a 80/20 battle with the X5 on the top! hehe.. Thanks for the feedback James! Just curious about how will the X1 go..

James: This is disappointing. Why not make X1 as neutral as possible, then let people use bass/treble control if they prefer?
post #524 of 7658

Why would you intentionally not make any DAP as ruler flat and natural as you can within your cost restraints?  Making your entry level unit inferior, so that everyone buys the flagship is not the best marketing strategy.

post #525 of 7658
If all sound neutral, what would be the difference between the entry and flagship xD
