The Ultimate Portable Music Player?

fiio-x5.jpg

Streaming music over the internet is great. But you don’t always get perfect quality audio.

While it might seem like a retrograde step, a portable music device like the FiiO X5 Lossless Music Player actually offers the most dynamic sound it’s possible to get. Just don’t call it an MP3 player.

Instead, this high-end gadget plays every other kind of audio acronym: from DSD, APE, FLAC and ALAC, to more common file types like WMA and WAV. The blizzard of letters may be confusing, but the bottom line is this: they ALL sound markedly better than MP3s.

In addition to these capabilities, the X5 has two microSD slots for up to 256GB of storage. Its sleek aluminium body houses a 2.4” screen for easy navigation of your newly-HD music library.

If you're still desperate for an unfathomable acronym, you can always brag about the X5’s TI PCM1792A DAC, OPA1612 and LMH6642 op amps to anyone who'll listen. Though finding those people might be the tricky part…

Prices start at $399.99 (£260).
