Players Fiio audiophiles X1 Silver (Electronics)

Customer Review

The market for audiophiles players is quite a niche area where some models easily exceed the budget of many enthusiasts such as the Astell & Kern AK240 2500 euros, that's why the arrival of Fiio X1 to 99 euros is very good news for audiophiles who not Nont income professional footballers.
Since the opening of the packet this is Byzantium with two pieces of screen protector, a black silicone case and three blisters to customize Lengin.
The unit inspires confidence for the construction and lassemblage seem impeccable. Few buttons, a scroll wheel, in three minutes we understand all of its operations without having to look. But most important is of course the sound and there it must be said, the performance price ratio is very high.
The soundstage is rendered perfectly neutral and without légalisateur. Immediately quon we understand has to do a good player because the return abruptly changes depending on the read file and the quality of the sound recording. The MP3 should be avoided for flac waw and who should be given priority and especially on 24-bit studio Masters.
Compared to a very good CD player such as the Marantz 605 on a Sennheiser HD600 there is (still happy!) Less dynamic, less refinement and for interrelations but frankly for such a small device, a portable player, the sound is simply stunning and will fill most audiophiles except to be a madman in stereo without any concession.
Note that the unit does not include internal storage but a slot for micro SD cards (up to 128 GB). It is strongly recommended to format the card in the device because Windows does not handle the 32 fat above 32 gigas.
