I think I have read somewhere that Fiio actually suggest people to pair the x5 with e12 if they use balanced armature earphones. I personally have not tried the x5 before so please correct me if I am wrong.
Get the X5 first - if you don't feel it is enough, then consider an amp later. I'll say for the majority out there, getting an extra amp for X5 is almost redundant given how power X5 already is.
