    Just curious... and I have seen the gen 2 X5 called this before. Why the "K" in your designation of X5K for the newest model. Just not getting where the "K" comes from.

    I honestly don't know. Originally when the Fiio X3 2nd generation, people would typically call it the X3ii or the X3K, and I guess the nomenclature has stuck!

    OK, again just curious. I can see  why it might be X5ii, or X5II, or X5G2. The K is lost on me. BTW, nice review. Not fond of the fact that you did not come up with a favorite at the end. I kind of want somebody to tell me that I just have to have the X5II..  So far everyone has pretty much called it a draw. It looks more and more like I will stay with my X5 and see what the X7 is all about. I did like the fact you had links to the songs that you used. Nice touch

    Now I've completed my own review, I'm enjoying catching up with the others. I know how you feel with the summary, there was no night and day changes in sound quality. Subtle change that one may prefer, another might not.

    [user=58184]@mandrake50[/user] I just used X5K as naming nomenclature for simplicities sake, and I wish someone would clean up the condusion as hell haha.   After sending off the X5K, I've had time with my X5 again and the only feature I really miss is the instant sleep feature on the X5K.
