    Be nice to have 4.4mm balanced input in addition to included single-ended 6.35mm.
    Gladly pay more for that.

    How long is K5 Pro power cord? Some of us need a bit more length to reach our electrical outlets, and extension cords are a big no-no.

    FiiO and iFi two of my favorite businesses in this hobby.

    I was super excited when they announced the K5 Pro! :darthsmile:

    I own the X5III, and the K5 is next to my bed for listening time before bed to help me fall asleep and they sound great. I've used it as a DAC, but then I ended up used it less often everywhere else since my pc is on like 6 hours a day in my office, so this was a perfect solution within my budget! I really hope I win!

    Been using Fiio since 2011 with the M11 as my newest one and would love to upgrade my K5 to the pro.

    I’m in. Just spin the bottle and land on me for the sweet kiss of sweet sound:wink:

    @FiiO is the amplifier in the K5 Pro exactly the same as the old K5 or has it been tweaked/modified?

    Not sure which one is the official K5 PRO thread, so I'll leave it here as well:
    "Just posted my reviews for it. Here's the written one and here's the video one.
    Has plenty of power, even with planars."

    i would love this, its perfect for what i want to do, because i just realized, i could use the line out to go to my mini desktop 2.0 speaker amp - i've been searching madly over the last few days to find a viable replacement for my amp (because of its low quality 1/4" headphone out). could this be the solution? i love the work you guys do @FiiO i have one of the first versions of the X3 and i love it, my DT990's sound great with it. sort of on a budget at the moment, but ill definitely be saving up to buy this if my thoughts on setup are correct. could someone could please confirm if it would work in the way i suggested?

    You can use it as headphone amp and line-out, sure

    Versatile and smart looking unit. Who will not want to test it? I know I do.
  13. XERO1
    I have a couple questions about K5 Pro's line-out.

    Does the line-out switch off if the headphones are plugged in?
    Does the volume control change the level of the line-out, or is it a fixed output line-out?
  14. RandomDave
    Knowing fiio, it's most likely a variable output, but if you switch it to 0dB and put the knob all the way, it's the same like if you had fixed line out.
  15. zr0dfx
    If I were to connect this up to my active monitors via the line out can the volume be controlled from the dial on the front?

    Also will this work stand alone or does it need a computer to work?
