Thanks. I just ordered it from Penonaudio.
Fine choice, I am sure u will enjoy it. I can send you the download link to the newest firmwares once u get it.
Just to describe L5 in short is that It has very responsive and tight bass, a little too impactful sometime for my taste.
Mids is very lush and smooth, however can be too lean and clean sometime as u might want some thick and layback signature when you listen to pop/vocal.
Highs is too on the lush side and no bright spikes that appear on lots of DAPs even on my hugo. However it does not have a bright signature (like hugo) if thats what you looking for.
Overall it is lean and lush, with decent sound stage and bass impact. It will work fine for many genres of music maybe not the ones that require a thick mid-bass.
As for touch screen and UI, not much to talk about, it is still subject to changes, right now UI is good but touch screen 'ok' responsive, a tap worse than DX90. The screen is not capacitive I believe, it just they haven't figure out how to code the touch screen part.
Sound quality goes it is a level well above dx90.
