The new Fiio X5 III is based on a totally new design concept and is now running on a modified Android operating system. The company tags it with “doubling down on sound quality”, why? Because at the heart of the X5 III are two 32-bit AK4490EN DAC chips supporting up to 32bit/768kHz audio and features AKM’s unique Velvet Sound with a -112dB total harmonic distortion and 120dB signal-to-noise ratio.
The X1 second-gen is available in silver, rose gold, or black finishes. The 3.5mm headphone jack can be switched over to line output so you can hook up the player to an audio system, or a set of powered speakers.
Patent-pending dedicated source module + independent headphone amp module design keeps the compact integrated profile of a single portable music player while providing the sonic advantages of utilizing a separate headphone amplifier. The resulting customizability allows you to customize the resulting sound (warm, neutral, etc.), output power (for driving IEMs or full-size headphones) or output port (single-ended or balanced, etc.) by choosing among different modules.
