I'm only kidding, but seriously...is it THAT good? O.o

You guys are on the preview tour right?

 

This is your chance to find out for only the price of shipping the unit to the next person, of writting a review for FiiO and head-Fi, and in testing out the newest DAP a month before official international release.

I was on the tour, but pulled out due to school clogging up my schedule. But yeah, I was aware of the cost of the tour and what was expected. smily_headphones1.gif

The thing is you'll have people pointing fingers on both sides. There will be people who will point fingers when you didn't pay out of pocket for it and being biased and then you'll have people who will say you are biased because you paid out of pocket and don't want to feel like an idiot for spending so much money on the gear.... :rolleyes:

Ahh, its all good my man. College is a time consuming place. You gotta pull out every now and then, even if you really don't want to. :tongue:

 

Good luck my man

Doesn't matter to me personally because the size of the 901 is a non starter. My guess is that the 901 has a nice open perspective with great texture while the X5 is very detailed and solid with a high boogie factor. Tends to be the character of their DACs though the Sabre certainly doesn't lack detail. It can be on the smooth side rhythmically.  I tend to gravitate towards solid (not etched) boogie when it's an either or. Timing or tempo is tops for me if other aspects are not considerably different. What the music is doing is more important to me than where it's coming from. I always wondered about the dual DAC designs and their worth in a DAP. I get the advantages of them but I suspect you can get more from an all in one dap with greater attention elsewhere. I had an AK120 and liked it a lot but it was the only game in town for a while. Both it and the 901 do the dual dac thing and I'm sure there's some benefit. I just wonder if that was the way to get the most benefit.

 

Pure speculation on possible differences.

More like "You better speak up when the time comes (you WERE chosen into this tour for writing a review on our player...), and anything you say and don't say can and will be used against us" rolleyes.gif Such is life as a manufacturer frown.gif
