That's more Head-Fi reviews than the HD800, which has been out for 3+ years, and is pretty much guaranteed to be on the side-bar of recent reviews for the next few months in addition to being the #1 unit in the Portable Source Components review section of Head-Fi (highest rated thing is the iPod Classic at 18 reviews).

Interesting thought. XD

Highest number of reviews does not guarantee highest rating XD

When organising this tour I wanted to make a good showing in terms of number of applicants, and boy was I successful biggrin.gif Then I didn't want many people to be left out. The implications are only beginning to dawn on me tongue.gif

For fact-checking, fact-checking tongue.gif

I just corrected a typo and noted that you could hold down the back button to go straight back to the main menu smily_headphones1.gif

And here's a gentle reminder for previewers: please put my suggested corrections in parentheses next to the original text instead of directly replacing it. Well I guess trivial typos can be excepted from this rule.

I guess though for me this may not be the step up over the Studio V i am seeking. I mean only in terms of sound.

Still open to being convinced otherwise though...

 

It will really depend on what gear you are using with it Sauntere... Are you still using the IE80s? The Studio would jive better with it being a brighter and thinner signature to counteract the IE80s bassy and laid back signature...

My review will be short and sweet, but I may refer to myself in the 3rd person. Seriously, though - with so many reviews on their way, it may be a bit of overkill to do one that is so in-depth like Brooko's. All I can say is that mine will be "different", but not inappropriate.

 

Early returns are strong and I'm really pumped to hear it for myself. I use my J3 almost exclusively, so I'm very curious as to whether I will be blown away or something less dramatic. My music is almost entirely well-produced stuff, with a ton of MFSL titles and such, so I'm wondering how apparent the superiority (I'm assuming this will be the case) of the X5 will be.

Thank you very much Brooko - really helpful. Superb level of detail - read it trwice now.

 

Confirming my view that I will be buying the X5 as soon as it reaches England.

What an epic review Brooko. How you make use of the editing tools almost makes the review look like a magazine.

You wanna calm down there boy, you''re going to make some of us look bad......  :tongue:

Brooko went to jail later that day after writing that review... BECAUSE HE KILLED IT!

But seriously, you did an amazing job, Paul!

(You too, Lee! I read yours too, but have yet to read a few others yet - I'll slowly get around to them when I have more free time!)

In depth, and nicely written to keep the reader far from boredom of repetition. I was meant to read this early today, but found myself to be rather busy.

Kudos to you, my friend. *tips hat*

I look forward to owning this DAP one day (once I have enough dosh) from all the cool things that I've read through these few reviews that have been released. Good job, lads.

Brooko!

 

You should be receiving job offers for online reviewing soon...

 

That review was better than 90% of all reviews i have ever read...

 

boy, you did raise the bar for the rest of us, too

I still have those but hardly ever listen with them. These days it's Fitear F111, for a while Senni 800s which i don't have any more..

Excellent review! Thank you for that!

One question: when you browse by folder, you have to select the card, right? Or does it put everything in one single structure?

Yes, select the card first. Hmm, interesting idea to combine the two cards...

I think it is a great idea. But let's see if more people agree on that.
Well, if it's simple to include this option on the menu, then why not? :-)

You'd probably need to have both cards' libraries pre-scanned of course.

So far the X5 sounds very promising, definitely keen to get my grubby mitts on it when it launches in the UK.

 

Has anyone here tried the X5 with the Alpha Dogs by any chance?

That is what I thought was going to happen when I got it first but noticed that selection needed to be done first. If you can merge the two, that would make so much sense as I always leave the two cards in it.

It happens anyway when you select update the library, both get scanned.

A file browser is like a window. If there are two cards, you should see two cards. If there are 100 folders, you should see 100 folders.

 

The beauty of a file browser is that it doesn't have the inevitable bugs of a database because it just shows what is there.
