What kind of style difference are you thinking about?

Don't take this the wrong way guys, I'm only going to check basic statements of facts regarding the X5 for accuracy. I ain't censoring nothin' cool.gif

I will try to write more guidelines on the preview process before the units arrive in your hands smily_headphones1.gif

So, if I write that Panda's dig X5's and that its a better alternative than say, bamboo. Would that be regarded as X5 factual inaccuracy?

That was quite surprising, I thought there would have been.

 

The X5 HF thread is a mess to look through for up to date info. Can you give us - on FB or wherever - a sub official or official info dump on the full features and specs of the X5? There are tid bits here and there but it is nightmare for contributors like me to answer questions on the X5 when FiiO has changed so much stuff on it.

Writing styles (e.g. talk about SQ in general or must quote specific songs?), formatting e.t.c.

That isn't a truly valid con.

 

The X3 has 8GB of internal storage.

 

It isn't a valid con because considering the target market and the people who are going to use it. They aren't going to spend $500 on a high res DAP that plays file formats that are generally 400MB per album and say the 8GB internal storage is enough.

 

And yeah, you should thank FiiO. Now you get to have a piece of needed equipment in your house.

I've been aware of the lack of internal storage for quite some time, so this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody who has been paying attention.

Paying attention or not. Its still good to have it all in one easy place.

I for one, have not been. I left staying up to date on the X5 months ago. Changes left and write.

It is all in one place - page 1 of the X5 thread. #10 lists the lack of internal storage.

 

Check Page Numero Uno.

The shortcoming of official documentation on the X5 is duly noted smily_headphones1.gif I'll try to make up for it ASAP
