Nice! A black version would be welcome, but that blue one has my eye...The white one is pretty nice as well...

I like I like, currently using a Clip Sport and it sounds good. Hopefully this makes enough of a difference that I'd be okay with the heavier and chunkier profile of the device.

^ haha FiiO is such a troll, "we don't want to look like we copy the iPod" but we will copy the iphone. LoL :bigsmile_face:

... da' 5C that is. : P

 

Good move on the different color schemes james, makes it have a bigger mainstream appeal that is for sure. Got my eyes on the yellow and white version.

 

BUT Can FiiO include some black scroll wheel stickers with the X1??? Cuz the yellow one with a black scroll wheel sticker...................

.... dat X1 Bruce Lee edition boi!!! :L3000:

^ i am more interested if the X1's dac/amp will be better than the FiiO E17s tbh. If it is i will get one for sure.............. but will see. :)

I'm trying to go off memory, so sorry if I am misremembering.  I think the X1 is using the same Dac as the E17, and will have a weaker amp as far as output is concerned compared to the E17.  I want to say the X1 amp should output 100mW@32, and the E17 does 220mW@32.

^ Hmmm that's interesting if it is indeed the case. Might have to go for something else since i already own a E17.

 

Will see how this thing further develops. :popcorn:

Now that I think about it, I think it was decided to not use the Wolfson DAC that's been used in various DAP/DACs and go with one of TI's PCM DACs.  I know the X5 is using a PCM DAC, but I don't think its supposed to be the same one in the X1.  Still pretty sure about the 100mW output on the X1 tho.

^ Ok, thanks but i will have to wait for impressions on these X1s before i buy now. No longer auto buy for me due to many reasons/ developments of late. Hope they sound better than the E17s is alls i am asking for, even thought it might not have as much power.

 

Mainly due to the DX50 being rockbox-able and is not THAT much mo' than these X1s now. :ph34r:

 

But will see.

post #807 of 7658
Don't the E17 uses different DAC from X1? WM8740 vs PCM5121? Correct me if I am wrong
post #808 of 7658

Yes it uses a different DAC than the E17

^ Welp then it's a completely different ball game. But will still have to see how it sounds 1st now, just too much goodness dropping of late. :)

post #810 of 7658

I'm hoping it has a sense of being compact and portable.  I know I reach for my clips without even thinking about it for that very reason.
