    FiiO X5 III Digital Audio Player


    Doubling Down on Sound Quality

    FiiO have really stepped up their game with the with the X5 3rd gen, which implements some impressive components. The X5 is a digital audio player that is truly dedicated to faithfully reproducing your music, for top-quality tunes wherever you may be.


    The X5 3rd gen is equipped with two 32-bit AKM AK4490EN DACs (one for each channel) that support all PCM and DSD formats. Utilising dual-channel implementation of AKM's unique VELVET SOUND low-distortion architecture, which includes digital filtering with 32-bit processing, the DAC chips in the X5 3rd gen have the ability to finely and exactly reproduce your music.


    Other elements dedicated to high-quality sound reproduction include the dual crystal oscillators, which ensure that under all sampling rates, there is significantly reduced jitter, improved clock accuracy, more stable operation and virtually no sampling rate conversion artifacts. There's also a four-way low pass filtering stage (with two dual-channel OPA1642 chips) and a custom-made audiophile-grade OPA426 chip that provides a greater power output and improved ability to deal with capacitive loads.


    The X5 3rd gen uses a deeply customised version of Android, which circumvents the problem of third-party Android apps automatically converting the sample rate of music. It also has two operational modes; Pure Music mode, which leaves only the main music player available, and Android mode, which lets you install and run third-party Android apps.


    Constructed from specially-selected No. 180 zirconum sand, the upgrade in the feel and grip of this digital audio player is immediately apparent. The molded chassis, plastic and stainless steel come together for a sleek look. Decorated with subtle patterns, along with titanium and gold paint, the X5 3rd gen offers an understated yet luxurious appearance.
