How about a complimentary final-production X5 to each of the previewers?
Seems like a good idea until everyone starts buffing reviews, and we are left with a schiit ton of convulted reviews.
I can just imagine the buyer going online looking for reviews and thinking to himself
The prize is being able to test out a product that could very well be close to the production and give your input to the manufacturer. There are very few companies that allow their target audience to do such a thing :p That would be enough for me at least.
I know that is reward in and of itself and I feel honored for the chance...but it never hurts to imagine...
Well good news guys, I own a HM 801 so... I intended to bring some brutal honesty to the X5. So no buffed reviews here :D
Also congrats to the previewers from the other regions!
Still It would be nice for Fiio to offer us a very small discount... as I assume not only are we previewing but also acting as the final batch of Testers. I intended to keep track of what ever little bugs I run into. Might throw them in a spoiler tag, here on head fi. And refer ppl to said spoiler if they are interested. Here's to hoping it performs without any glitches at all :D, although... I will admit I might be tempted to get one... the Hm801 UI is horrible... might be nice to have something more friendly for once xD
Seriously, I would rather just show my support for fine businesses like FiiO, iBasso, Schiit, Audeze, etc. by providing honest feedback and helping them improve. I don't need a discount unless it were offered to a large group of folks like a Head-Fi group sale or something like that.
