X5III tour unit unboxing video. Quite an impressive unit, so far.

Peter peter123, I'm really sorry to hear this buddy :frowning2:

So glad to hear that all the family members are safe. I am wishing that you and your family will recover fast from this situation.

@all Labsters :wink:

Thanks for all the support guys! It's nice to have a thread like this that feels like a home on the Internet thanks to all the amazing people participating in it. I'm lucky to have found it and to be a part of it.

You're all right, that everyone is OK is what counts. Everything else is fixable.

Cheers
Peter

I quickly browsed the FIIO X5 III  unboxing video.  Surprising how many of us (yes me too) are southpaws.  Well, I play sports right handed but that is because when I was a kid they kind of forced that on us lefties.

  X5III tour unit unboxing video. Quite an impressive unit, so far.
 
Two days from China to the Midwest?? What kind of shipping did they use? On the East Coast it usually takes like a few weeks to get to me whenever I buy from China 
 
 
Anyway, nice video; without stoking the already blazing fires of the x5iii vs dx200 debate, I have to say that I think that I like the physical design of the x5iii just a liiittle more, although I can't speak to the sound of course. Boot time seems quite slow though, and that wasn't the very first boot either.. hopefully firmware would help fix that.
 
Overall UI seems clean and pretty smooth however; looks good

Hi guys,
Last night something terrible happened to me and my family. Just before bedtime I heard a quite strong noise from our ground floor and when I went down to check it out my sons room was on fire and not just a little. Fortunately he was watching videos together with his older sister and was not in the room. The room got totally burnt out though and the rest of the house filled with smoke. We all managed to get out in one piece buy both my wife and I inhaled quite a bit of smoke so we had to spend the night in hospital. The house still stands but we're not allowed even to go in and get medicine and basic stuff so today we've been walking around the mall in our night clothes slowly replacing them with new ones one by one. We've got no idea when we'll be allowed to get into our house again and we're staying at a hotel nearby right now.

What an absolute nightmare


Anyway, I'd guess it won't be much participating on Head-fi for me the next couple of weeks at least.

I didn't even manage to bring one single pair of anything to listen too

So sorry, glad everyone is safe.  Fire is scary.
 
I hope by now you have access to your house and recovery has started.

What a terrible thing to hear Peter! I'm glad you and your family are safe. Hopefully the smoke didn't do any harm to your health and you can start repairs to your home soon. Let me know if I can do anything. Keep your heads up!

Little late here, but hope you're doing fine and do take care!

But it is only €599 and may well be tricky to track one down to try it out.
 
How are you liking your portable Class A amp, any comments about it - good as well as bad and is it your favorite so far?
 
I have tried the Cayin C5 so far as well as the Fiio E12A, A5 and E11K and Topping NX1A, NX5 and NX5 and still looking for something better.
