Fiio has launched its latest high-resolution audio player, Fiio X7, in India at Rs 42,299. The android based audio player runs Android KitKat and it is the improved version of the previous flagship Fiio X5.
The device features a quad-core Rockchip RK3188 SoC for audio processing, and the ESS ES9018S digital-analogue converter, which is capable of working with 32-bit/384kHz audio files.
It comes with a 4-inch 480x800 capacitive touch screen. It also comes with 1GB RAM, and 32GB internal memory. The expandable storage slot supports up to 128GB microSD cards, allowing for over 150GB of total storage space for your music. The Fiio X7 supports all popular audio formats, including FLAC, WAV, ALAC, MP3, OGG and more. It also supports new formats such as DSD, DXD, and PCM.
The device is compatible with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity options. The Android Kitkat operating system can be used either in typical Android mode, or in Pure Music mode. With the Pure Music mode switch one can run the X7 as a music player alone, by locking off any multi-tasking or apps that may be running parallel to the playback. The X7 packs a 3500mAh Li-polymer battery which allows for a phenomenal 9 hours of play time.
The device is built with aluminium alloy for the casing, for improved durability. The X7's edges are beveled with a mirror finish on both the front and back, with the back further comprising a stepped shape for best hand-hold ability. The FiiO X7 is a well sized and shaped product both in terms of width and depth.
