Honestly it's hard for me to give up my rockboxed 256GB CF DMod with the sound I have no complaint about. I understand I may not have the best sound, but life is about balance and you probably can't have everything.

No strings attached. You'd think that given the sheer number of participants (I've lost count but there can't be much fewer than 40 previewers!), if we started dictating some funny terms someone should have backed out by now with a public statement on our dirty deeds tongue.gif

Hehehe, unless they are paid handsomely and with stock options when Fiio goes public...
Just joking...

this is not the job of Joe. we already start to send review sample to headfonics, CNET, headfonia, and Jude ( not sure whether he has time to review X5 ) and some other media and reviewers.

i am one of those on the tour list and i can assure you that there have been no "hints" or "suggestions"

 

as to how we should conduct our reviews...remember that this is supposed to be fun for us

 

music lovers.

No offers as well. They are not buying reviews. The X5 remains their property.

post #383 of 1895

Though if someone sends me an X5 I'll be more than happy to post a grossly biased review.  :-)

post #384 of 1895

Hey guys, no worry and I wasn't specifically questioning this tour instead it was a general comment made towards any toured product.

 

Hope you guys enjoy reviewing the X5 and I look forward to reading your reviews/opinions, even tho I don't have much interest in adding any dap to my collection yet. As the dude pointed out, I have 100 DMod's and that's enough, for now. :)

 

With that said, my personal preference for dap or any other gears is always neutrality and transparency without color.

I am on the list for the tour. Kendoji, I think you are misguided. I have no stake in the game other than 10 days with a (supposedly) really nice DAP, at no expense of my own. Other than shipping to the next member of the tour. I have a few (relatively) high-end DAPs to compare the x5 to (and I suspect that might be why I was selected for the tour). In any event, if the x5 is not up to par with the 5s, m8 or the ZX1, I will be the first to let you know. The fact that fiio decided to send me a 'review' unit, will not affect how I 'review' the unit.

Because that's the thing you want to put on a 'review' CV right there! :wink_face:
