Thanks for the clarification. In that case, what would be the main difference between the M series and the X series?
I would imagine that the difference is that the x series is full android and able to use the play store (at least) and in the case of the 7, swoppable amp units.
The X1 and X3 don't have android
Both are fast and responsive but the M9 somehow feels smoother.
Apologies, thought he was talking about x5-iii and x7!
No worries.

I hope we do get a definitive answer to what the M and X lines are.
Gents, AFAIK the answer to this was announced by FiiO quite some time back. There will be no further addition to the X-series line as all future players (until FiiO change their minds again) will fall under the M line

Well that's most unfortunate, X sounds better than M to me.

Why is it unfortunate? all it means is that their next flagship will be called M-something

Hey James any info on the SRC while using 3rd party apps?
there are a FiiO logo on the fron and it can display what kind of format it is play now, as you can see I am using a 3rd part music app in China and it show it is playing hi-res music right now so don't worry about this issues anymore.

if there are any SRC, the logo will display blue light.

Yes, X sounds cooler but it also make us quite difficult to name the products, and also make us very difficult to change the price position.

Fair enough

I'll look forward to the M11 or whatever the X7ii's successor will be :D

My guess is...

M3 -> M3K
X1 -> M7(?)
X3 -> M9(?)
X5 -> ???
X7 -> ???
If so that would be great, considering the M9 already sounds better than the X5iii

I don't think you can install apps. It just has some preinstalled streaming apps.
