What in the world does that even mean?  "Integrated Head-Fi?"  Is Head-Fi an app that I am not aware of?
To elaborate, within the “Support” function on the X7 you’re given links to the FiiO website, offiical FiiO forum as well as the FiiO thread right here on Head-fi where Goodyfresh’s maniacal avatar greets you.  This is huge validation for Head-fi as well as an impressive achievement for FiiO.

wow, it's very interesting to see you guy discuss about hi-res while i am learning information theory and sampling in colledge. and i have a theory that justifies the higher sampling rate in audio and does not violate the nyquist theorem. not trying to stir that up again.


i am eagerly waiting for the first impressions from the x7 tour. it seems that chinese users already got their hands on it, but i have not found much sharings though.

depended on the feedback from few customers, all the problems belong to firmware issues so we can expect the mass production will  on schdule.

Probably one of the most affordable higher quality specified pieces on the market. No marketting ********, just pure craftmanship.

This would have made a good commercial if someone had filmed it.  I had the X7 in my hand and the person behind me asked: "What kind of phone is that?"
 
I replied... "It's not a phone, it's a FiiO."

I'll be able to listen to FiiO, watch videos about FiiO, read about FiiO, post about FiiO.... All FiiO all the time!

depended on the feedback from few customers, all the problems belong to firmware issues so we can expect the mass production will  on schdule. 

James, I was wondering how will software updates be handled? Will we have to download it on to the computer first to install it on the X7 via USB or will we get an update prompt on the X7 itself?

Good question!  Would be great to get OTA updates when wifi on.

They're too busy listening.

 
Can't blame them.

It is not a P....H....O...N....E. It is a P....H...Oooo...., like no "N"

Lol, are you messing with my English ? I know it is bad, but you are telling me a Phone is not a Phone but a PHO ?

No, I am serious...it is a PHO, and it spells F....Iiiii....ooooo

Why oh why is this otherwise wonderful device so woefully underpowered? Seriously, FiiO, 100Mw at 32ohms? It should be double that. People like me need to play louder and with very dynamic music, more power on tap helps. Now I'm not saying more power makes a night and day difference, but 100Mw is quite low.
 
Maybe I'm over reacting, but having 800Mw with my E12 makes me expect one 1/4 of that power is possible. Thoughts, comments, am I just demanding? I would pay more for the power, but as it stands I can't invest in the X7 as I would want an amp as well, and that is bulky plus results in cables that short out. I could have sworn that when the X7 design phase began we were promised a stronger amplification section. Perhaps my memory is off?

I said the exact same thing and everybody proceeded to yell at me for being "ungrateful."
 

It will be modular with an easily interchangable amp-module, and Fiio will be producing other amp-modules as well.  Issue is, we'll have to buy them separately.

With the X7 now being so wimpy, this perhaps forces me to order the ALO CDM :)
