If I can customize the graphic, and the 'paper' won't affect the scroll wheel, and its under $20. I'll order one

i have already expressed my interest, even if the graphic is uncustomizable i would still order one if there is a design that i like better than the plain black look

it definitely will make the boring black looking x5 (for some people, black look elegant..but some will say it look boring) to look more interesting. but only if the decal is good quality and in good cutting..else it spoilt the whole look~ :)

It seems that I may need to get a custom graphic made for the X5.

 

Mine will be comming in tomorrow. I have a sticker already that may work. If it fits, I may try it.

 

Here's an image of one of those stickers on my Mac

I really like the included silicon case so decals won't make much difference. I will pass.

My wife has just received the Japan X5 demo (thanks Joe!) and will put it through a burn-in process all of this weekend. During that time I should be able to give some thoughts on the non-sonic aspects of the player.

 

Excited about this.

I'm at work now for the next 8-10 hours.  I will elaborate more when I get a chance to put a few more lossless albums through it.  I only used "Wish You Were Here" initially.  Will listyen to some Porcupine Tree throughout the day and advise later. 

 

 

Only liustened to the presets so far.  Will tinker with EQ tonight.

 

 

No probs - just remember these are early impressions.  I've had this now for less than 24 hours.  In-depth stuff will come over the next 2-3 days ;) 

 

 

Jon - thanks.  I'll try this tonight.

 

I have to agree the unit has a slight warmth to it but is still quite neutral IMO. It is just right to me :). How do you like it vs the Studio V 3rd ANV?

I am getting a loaner in the next few days.

On the SE5 maybe.... :floatsmile:

Do the volume controls work when one is not at the Now Playing screen? I remember they don't for the X3. Thanks!

You have the option to turn the button function for volume and track-switching on or off in the settings menu. This is extremely handy because you can switch tracks and raise or lower the volume without activating the screen (just like the AK series). Personally the Fiio UI is better than even the AK series IMO. Not night and day but there is definitely more features and it is as smooth if not smoother. AK really has its work cut out for it IMO. At the prices they sell at I don't see them fairing very well in the market. They will have to really cut down prices to compete now, which is a good thing.

SQ wise does the X5 come close to the stock 120?
