    These are great news!!! Looking forward to it. Q5 will have a big potential for the music producers on the go!
     
    BTW this will be implemented? "8, New, maybe support APT-X bluetooth receiver" .. (APT-X works perfectly in the Creative Soundblaster X5 DAC/AMP)

    Dual AKM4490! :)
     
    @JamesFiiO are you 100% on using blue LEDs? Amber or white LEDs are much nicer on hifi equipment.
     
    i am still waiting for the day when FiiO make a portable tube amp.

    we will consider the color of the LEDs again when the engineer sample is ready.

    How about changeable LED color ?

    From my user experience, usually white color uses to indicate device active state (turned on or for any other general status). Red (or green) for power and blue for connection. Just saying that blue is OK for connection status, however I agree that white could look better with CNC Aluminium :)

    Thank you James, blue is very commonly used and it would be nice to see a change.

    Yeah, Most TN panels have too much blue anyways, using a different color patter might actually be nice. At least make it blue aqua turquoise something something, instead of pure blue.

    Hey, everyone. I just did a search on "launch" and "release" and nothing came up. What's the expected launch and price-point expected to be for this? Is this more of an Oppo HA-2 or a Chord Hugo competitor? 
     
    Thanks!

    I would expect a $299-$399 pricepoint... Based on what i read likely around Thansksiving... Again just speculation on my part based on responses of others and the vendor.

    Thanks for the info. That puts it squarely in competition with the Oppo, which I have, and like quite a bit.  
     
    The problem with the Oppp is that the otg cable is on the botton of the unit, and the power/volume knob is at the top. Putting it in your pocket puts strain on the microUSB ports.
     
    I have to see how Fiio addressed this concern. The swappable amp modules do make it appealing, so that you could upgrade it in the future. 
     
    Do you know when they're planning to release this?

    I second the idea for white LEDs. Actually, a combo of white and amber could look pretty darn sweet

    Q5+K5 would be a great desktop combo.

    this is a problem cause the volume knob is on the top but the headphone socket is on the botton too. but a bluetooth remote control may solve the problem if you want to do that.

    Hi James-

    Thanks for addressing my question, and thanks for being so active in the community!

    Do you know when you'll be adding the ability to download music from apps such as Tidal onto an SD card with the X7? That's the only thing preventing me from keeping the one I purchased.

    Also, do you have an eta and price on the amp upgrade modules?

    This would be my fifth Fiio product, and I've always been impressed with their price-to-performance ratio and your pursuit of continual improvement!

    yes, we are working in this and I hope we can solve this issue after our holidays.
