FiiO X5ii 2nd Gen Audio Player £245.65 (with coupon) at Advanced MP3 players

29
Found 29th Jul 2015
Now that the ipod classic has been discontinued by Apple, this is really the only way (as far as I know) to have a large number of mp3s on a single unit. Even with the discount code, you still have to add the cost of two high capacity micro sd cards but you can have two 128gb cards installed which is a considerable increase in the ipods 160gb, but at a high outlay.

This is the details from the Amazon website-
Product Description
The New and Improved X5ii 2nd Generation has now hit the market. It has an All-new exterior design, improved build, with metal finish changed from powdered to brushed The New X5ii is more compact and lightweight with smaller black borders around the LCD. The all new independent amplification stage with analogue volume control, increases audio resolution and the new digital audio architecture, utilizing dual crystal oscillators dedicated to multiples of 44.1 and 48kHz respectively (including 176.4kHz=4x44.1, 192kHz=4x48 and DSD64 and DSD128 (multiples of 44.1), handling all major sample rates without resampling artifacts and minimal jitter. The X5ii supports hardware DSD decoding and supports CTIA-standard in-line earphone remotes (e.g. Apple, Samsung compatible earphones) The X5ii's breakthrough power architecture design utilises different system voltages for low and high gain, allowing maximum flexibility between long endurance and high driving power in the same unit. The new power management features of the auto standby mode allows player to remain in standby for weeks, ready to continue playing instantly. The X5ii has also got a Coulomb meter for precise battery level readouts. Internal battery: 3300mAh Output power: >255 mW(32Ω/THD+N<1%) THD+N: <0.001%(1 kHz, PO) SNR: ≥117 dB (A-weighted, PO) I/V Conversion: OPA1652*2 (Right & Left channel) LPF: OPA1612 Volume adjustment: PGA2311 AMP: OPA1612+BUF634U*2 (Right & Left channel Charging Time: <4 h (DC5V 2A) Battery Life: 10h (32Ω; normal volume with display off) SoC: JZ4760B, DAC: PCM1792A LPF: OPA1612, OP: OPA1612+BUF634 FPGA: SA2000 Dimensions: 109mm x 63.5mm x 5.3mm Weight: 165g

I wasn't suggesting you do! But the reason I was looking is because a friend of mine asked me what was available to replace his ipod. This was the only unit I could find with a large capacity.

Took advantage of this deal, excellent sound quality and worth the price.

Never had any problems with advancedmp3players, quick delivery and easy exchange/refund when had to return stuff.

Why not?

Should be FLAC audio files paired with a decent set of earphones/headphones for audio files.
surely any cheap media player compatible with micro SD cards would do the same if only for mp3s?

If you can hear the difference sure.

mp3 players are already obsolete

I was planning on getting one of these but found the interface a little clunky. In the end I got the Sony NWZ-A15 Walkmanwhich sounds fantastic to me and has a nice interface. It's also really small, really light, and the battery lasts ages. I purchased the Sandisk 128GB micro SD deal that's in here for £30 so have plenty of space for my FLACs

I've tested quality sourced MP3 vs FLAC with ABX Comparator (foobar2000) and I can confirm that I don't have supersonic hearing.

I've used one. Great value, but not really as good sound as the Fiio or the Sony. Great for using and not caring about though

Our really depends on the quality of the headphones your using and your hearing I suppose. I'm only using my note 4 and a pair of £20 sound magic earphones and I can hear the difference.

I think it is supposed to sound better than an Ipud which is what your friend is used to. Admittedly he may be scared of being laughed at by all his sophisticated friends!!! However, these Sansa's are tiny and can be hidden away out of sight....:D

Not true! Its a great little player and I love mine dearly but the max mem card size it takes is 32gb. It also has a play time of about 6 hours before needing a recharge...

Can use this as an external DAC for PC/Mac/Console and feed it to an amp, gives the sound a decent boost.

Depends on the source. If you use low quality MP3 and good quality FLAC of course you can hear the difference.

have you tried a blind listening test with matched volume levels, such as the foobar ABX?
