Dual DACs for a Silky Smooth Sound

The X5 3rd gen is equipped with two top of teh line AKM AK4490EN DACs, one for each channel. The AK4490EN is a part of a new generation of high-quality 32-bit DACs that supports all PCM and DSD formats. By using a dual-channel implementation of AKM's unique VELVET SOUND low-distortion architecture that 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.
Dual Crystal Oscillators for Faithfully Reproduced Music

The X5 3rd gen utilizes two separate crystal oscillators - one for the DSD/44.188.8/176.4/352.8 khz sampling rates and the other for 48/96/192/384 khz. This ensures that under all sampling rates, there is significantly reduced jitter, improved clock accuracy, more stable operation and virtually no sampling rate conversion artifacts.
Four-Way LPF for First-Rate Amplification:

The X5 3rd gen utilized two dual-channel OPA1642 chips for its low-pas filtering stage and a custom-made audiophile-grade OPA426 chip for amplification, providing greater power output (up to 300mW under a 32Ω load) and greater ability to deal with capacitive loads. The outstanding sound quality of final audio architecture employed in the x5 3rd gen is the result of closed beta users working tirelessly together with the team at FiiO in a quest to make this new X5 sound the best that it can.

Deeply Customized Android 5.1 OS for Efficient Music Playback
Ti Circumvent the problem of third-party Android apps automatically converting the sample rate of music, Fiio's software team wrote an entire new audio software architecture for its deeply customized and optimized version of the Android 5.1 OS. This results in improved sound quality and better overall performance of the device, and also gives 90 more minutes of battery life compared to running under Android 4.4.

Two Operation Modes for More Enjoyment

The X5 3rd gen, following in the footsteps of Fiio's flagship DAP, also offers two modes of operation - Pure Music mode and Android mode. In Pure Music Mode, only the main music player is available - no other apps run for smoother operation and a purer sound. In Android mode, users ar free to install and run any third-party Android apps according to their needs. By offering these two modes of operation, the X5 3rd gen can satisfy both the music purists and those who need more versatility.

In this new design made of find stainless steel powder based on new metallurgical methods the gap between the micro SD card slot and the rest of the body is only 0.2mm-making for a more handsome body.

The volume knob contains several of Fiio's characteristic design traits, such as the 45° grooves on the volume knob as well as the rigid lines and smooth circular elements which complement each other for a striking and uniqued look.
2 Modes of Charging to Quickly Get Back UP and Running

The X5 3rd gen contains a 3.8V 3400mAh battery that provides more than 10 hours of playing time. But when you do run out of battery, the new X5 has new rapid charging technology wit temperature detection (with an on-screen indicator) that not only supports the typical BC 1.2 USB charging specification but also supports 9v/12V high-voltage rapid charging.
