The X5 was launched as a revolution in the digital music industry by Fiio a couple of years back. It took over its competitors and delivered performance that satisfied the acoustic senses of all audiophiles. The X5 Second Generation takes the revolution one step further and improves the audio quality by leaps and bounds.Native DSD Decoding
The all new digital audio architecture incorporated in the X5 Gen-2 allows it to decode native DSD64/128 files and support direct playback of SACD ISOs. Apart from these, all lossless formats including WAV, FLAC, WMA, APE, AIFF, ALAC, etc.Dual Crystal Oscillators
The X5 2nd Gen features two silicon crystal oscillators clocked at 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz. Employing these dual-oscillators delivers jitter-free and highly précised playback of all supported formats. These USA made SiTime MEMS oscillators have wider range of working temperature with less than 1ps jitter, resulting in an improved accuracy by 25 times.Audiophile-Grade Construction
Although the performance of X5 Gen-2 has increased by a significant margin, it didn’t necessarily mean that its size would also increase. As a matter of fact, the 2nd generation of the X5 is a lighter, smaller and even more ergonomic that its predecessor. The aluminum alloy chassis of the X5 Gen-2 houses a 3300mAh battery, two microSD card slots and brilliant 2.4” HD IPS screen.Personalize it!
The X5 Gen-2 comes with a 10-band equalizer that allows you adjust the music according to your own taste and liking. The user-interface gives you the choice selecting five different display themes on the X5 so that you mold it according to your visual taste as well. An option for user-defined playlist allows you to add different songs in a playlists.
The X5 Gen-2, like other music players from Fiio, come with a universal 3.5mm audio jack, making it compatible with almost every performance headphone. The Line Out/Digital Out (Coax) port allows you to share your music with others. The dual microSD slots support 126GB memory cards each so you can store your whole music collection in just a single device.
This is my first digital audio player, so I don't have anything to compare it to. But so far, after using it for three or four months, I'm exceptional...
