FiiO X5 preview world tour--tour members, claim your souvenir for the X5 tour! p.123 - Page 101

post #1501 of 1895

One question

 

Can I use Portable External Solid State Storage Drive connect to X5 (USB OTG)? http://www.amazon.com/MyDigitalSSD-SuperSpeed-Portable-External-Storage/dp/B00EZ2FRP2/ref=zg_bs_3015429011_3

 

If yes, it will be great 256GB HDD + 2x64GB card will be enough in daily use for me

If you don't mind me asking, what do you possibly listen to to have 384 GB worth of music for daily use?

Say you have an 11.5 minute song at 24/192 and it's 418 MB of in size (numbers are based on such a file I have from HD Tracks): 384 GB = 393216 MB = 940 files like this = 10818 minutes of music, or 180 hours, or 7.5 straight days of music.

Do you really listen to that much music? o.0

Math! Though that does make a lot of sense... some people (like me!) are just after the e-peen.

To answer the question though, Joe Bloggs mentioned in an update post that USB OTG will be supported in the future.

B. Bugs to be corrected and features to be added within the next two firmware revisions
...
17. Addition of USB OTG function for using external storage.

The X5 also officially supports the new 128 GB microSD cards as confirmed by JamesFiiO.

ha ha ha ha I knew, it will have a question :k701smile:

 

I'm working at home. I listen to music all the time during work. At night, when my wife watch TV, I listen to music. So let say, 90% of time from 8.00 - 24.00, I leave the music play continuously.

 

in the past I working in my 2 channels room and listen to music at the same time all day long

 

But due to illness of my wife, I have to stay with her in living room, never go into music room for five months now. I just jump into this hobby recently. I start rip my cd, it over 200GB already and still have a lots. I want all my albums keep in one place, so I can select any album at any time, my long habit.

 

So, small solid state hdd, will be a best solution for me :)

Thanks, very appreciate :beerchug:

 

now, go on with X5, before we go deep in details of doctor's treatment or Manchester united  :D

post #1511 of 1895
Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone who's auditioned the X5 has the X3 + E12 DIY combo and can comment if one of the buffer + opamp combos makes the X3 + E12 DIY sound similar to the X5. Asking because I've got an X3 + E12 DIY plus some additional opamps recommended in the E12 DIY thread. It'd be nice if I could replicate the X5's sound with that combo :-).

Thanks,
Nikolaus

Well, my X5 review is almost done, I spaced it out over a couple of days.

I just need to write the conclusion which will take about 10 minutes then proof read it.

Here's a couple of teaser photos.

Only one question about your review. What happened to your ipod click wheel in this pic? :wink_face:

Looks like the iPod just has a protective film over it that's pealing or is filled with air bubbles.
