FiiO X5 preview world tour--tour members, claim your souvenir for the X5 tour! p.123 - Page 120

post #1786 of 1895

Thanks James and Joe!

I actually think a cups a pretty cool idea, my coffee cup is in dear need of replacement though let the others share their thoughts. I'm all in for the image above made into a cup.

Wow Joe, that's so cool. I just woke up and this is what we are graced with.

Yeah I am guilty as charged but that's because I had my eyes on the X7 I guess I am good at shooting for the stars lmao. If I was sticking to the X5 though I would go insane having to pick a single gift. eek.gif

Thank you so much Joe and James about the gift, the funny thing is was so easy to review the player because we had two things, a great player to begin with and an amazing team behind it, I am talking about all reviewers and especially James and Joe efforts. It might sound funny but for some of us who still moves on, I would prefer a gift signed by James and you if possible. The T-shirt was attractive to me however if others prefer something else I don't mind, the signing I am very stuck up on it. To be honest the cream of the crop which might be impossible would be to have something with FiiO's employees signatures who contributed to the X5 on it but again I might be asking for the stars. biggrin.gif

James can U tell me how much for that leather case ???

post #1789 of 1895
Very cool indeed.
I want to say it was a pleasure to be part of the preview tour. During this tour my opinion on Fiio was build and you guys are not disappointing.

I should receive my X5 in a couple of weeks and I'm excited that by then the player will be improved and as good as I expected. And now, get to choose a gift to complement the player. Thanks!

James / Joe - thanks and appreciate the offer.

 

The review (from my POV) was a pleasure to write - and I just enjoyed being part of the Review Group.  Unfortunately I won't be buying the X5 for at least 3-6 months (with a growing family and other commitments - we just can't afford it right now).

 

My preference for a "gift" - assuming my review was well received by the community here (and it currently sits as equal top rep with Barra's) - would be to have the opportunity to do similar (ie another chance at reviewing) the next device you release.

 

That would be reward in itself :)

Firstly I'd like to thank all the previewers on this tour again on behalf of FiiO. Although you guys got to audition a new product before its launch, you had to take time to write a review on it and pay to ship to the next previewer. We would like to show our thanks for your effort with a memorable gift smily_headphones1.gif

And here's where I get stuck tongue.gif To avoid accusations of previewer bias, the gift cannot be too substantial or as direct as a discount for a retail X5. I do however want everyone to come away happy with the gift biggrin.gif

There's a wide selection of accessories that will be available for the X5 (the pic at the top shows multiple color options for the stock silicone case)

and I believe it will be fine for those previewers who would like to buy an X5 to pick and choose one of these accessories as a complementary gift for the reviewership.

However, not everyone who was a previewer will buy an X5 wink.gif For those other previewers I was thinking of a FiiO T-shirt signed by James, but it seems they've run out of T-shirts redface.gif

How about something from Cafepress?
http://www.cafepress.com/make/design-your-own

Was thinking of designing a cup out of the April fools X5 space launch motif

"FiiO X5: available from Deimos labs now! [UAC logo]" biggrin.gif

If someone would design a cup design that everyone loves (or even just an idea for a cup design that our art designers at FiiO can implement) that would be awesome biggrin.gif

Or it could be something as simple and as HDTracks coupons...?

 

Joe, that's incredibly generous of you guys...I would be happy with whatever you chose to share from the list of proposed accessories, after all, you guys were kind enough to send the tour units out in the first place...I have a pre-order with B&H here in the US. Can't wait to own an X5!

I'm with Brooko on this - if I could be given the opportunity to review either the X1, the X7 (my preference), or both, I would be quite happy to forgo a gift. Either way, it's very thoughtful of you guys - I definitely want to write more reviews.

I also agree with this :D

 

but as a bit of a Black Sheep, I think a nice 3.5mm interconnector would be a great gift! Sadly I own the HM801 so I won't be getting an X5, but I think most of us will agree that a plethera of intereconnectors is never a bad thing ^^

post #1795 of 1895

I agree with the possibility of future reviews. I'd love to have the opportunity to review future products: DAPs, amps, DACs, whatever. I also think it would be nice to have a choice between a few (two or three) 'perks'. Maybe something like a coffee mug (for those that don't plan on buying the X5), an interconnect (for people that already have another DAP), and a special case/cover (for those that will buy the X5). That's just my two cents, though.

post #1796 of 1895

That's 'swell of you guys.

 

I don't mean just Fiio chaps, but also fellow reviewers! :D

I agree with Brooko on being part of the next tour. It was by accident that I saw the tour thread pop up in the "recent discussions list" at the bottom of the page as the thread just came on line, otherwise I might have missed my spot. Can we be notified by PM prior to posting so we can be pre-authorized before it goes online or at least have a heads up?

 

Secondly, it has been painful counting the seconds until I could get my hands on a unit after having to ship it out. I can't even listen to my DX50 any more so my life has been somewhat void of music while I wait. Would it be possible to have a number of unit set aside for previewers to be able to purchase immediately at full retail? I still have not found any availability anywhere so I am still looking in the US. On his travels, I have even sent my father on several wild goose chases in China after the release there, in Singapore earlier this week, and now he is in Indonesia still looking for me. There is no availability anywhere. Can we please buy directly from you?

 

Wish List:

  1. Access: Immediate access to purchase at full retail.
  2. Tour: Spot in next tour, especially X7.

 

Please, please, please?

1) 3 days heads up first to all on the X5 tour first for a chance to review the X7 

2) Music clarity make me happy - so HD tracks if I could should :-)
