Aptx Bluetooth ! ... I know Aptx bluetooth isn't the best for best sound quality but while I usually will be listening with my Ultimate Ears UE11, I do on occasions, like to stream wireless bluetooth music to my portable bluetooth speakers ... and portable bluetooth speakers are so common nowadays .. I had to forgo the X5 cuz it doesn't have Aptx bluetooth

I doubt that will happen.

The X3 is already released and many people like it the way it is, despite the UI infidelities.

The wheel should be the only control on the front of it. Adding separate buttons will no doubt make it too clunky and remove the cool looking aesthetics.

i like the new design, atleast the button aren't awkward like the x5.  I would suggest labeling the buttons though...i have the hardest time remembering their function

Irregardless of UI implementation, the four buttons render the X1 into a commonplace "Chinese" DAP. Aside from those who, like myself, plan on purchasing a stable of X1s for secondary purposes, such as gym use and family "lending," your target market will, save for some light rumor that this little player can crush the iPod and its mainstream brethren, be coming blind to the X1.

The problem is that most consumers whittle down their candidates for purchase simply by saving what looks good to them. From what remains, they then select what offers the best in quality and features. I have no doubt that the X1 will win out over any "audiophile" DAPs developed for frugal enthusiasts, but, the design, in its current form, will bar its entry to the mainstream market in which it so deserves a chance. Remove the buttons and the bronze not for me, but for the greatly increased revenue such a change is nearly certain to bring.

if i weren't already havingt an X3, and getting an X5, this would definitely be on my list of WANT.

I like a lot the new design of the X1. It looks like the merge of the iPod Classic and an Sony Walkman. I'm only disapointed with the height of the DAP. If you can reduce it to 8 or 8,5 cm, it would be great. Why 8 (or 8,5 cm) ? Because it can almost match the size of the Sansa Fuze which look like an dwarf against others DAP in the market.

 

Will be the battery replaceable ? If the autonomy of the batterie could reach 20hrs, it would be great too. 

 

How you are you going to handle the fact that the LO and the HO have the same jack output ? Will it be a true Line-out or just the HO with a fixed volume level output ? How are we gonna to choose between the two ? A physical switch or a software one ?

Now THAT's a sexy little DAP. I concur that there should be some kind of markings on the buttons, though. It would look real classy if they could have engravings rather than painted markings.

is it possible to integrate the 4 buttons into the click wheel (like ipods)?

not if they want to avoid lawsuits.  Apple is relentless with that stuff.

post #625 of 7658

Thanks for the great news.

Please make it small as possible as you can while not giving up metal housing.

I am looking forward for this device.

Touch screen is not needed.  I'm not going to play games or watch media on the thing.

 

There is buttons, four of them.

post #628 of 7658

I am actually okay with daps having a touchscreen, I found that I like browsing my files using the touchscreen , at the very least I don't really like using the a clicky button like a ffio x3 , I am okay with scroll wheel though

Do the scroll wheel have other functions ie ipod style next previous back etc

Else this lateset version looks great but maybe can remove the external circle cutting through the standalone buttons
