FiiO Electronics Technology Co. Ltd has recently launched its highly anticipated first Android based Digital Audio Player, the FiiO X7 in India. The Chinese company started out in 2007 and has since made a royal foray into the headphones accessories market. From its iconic amplifiers, portable media players and to its DAC+AMPs, cables and Desktop converters, FiiO has made a name for itself in a very short time and has developed a loyal customer base all over the world.

FiiO is in partnership with Indian distributor Ferrari Video and its retail brand Headphone Zone. “In today’s era of music streaming services, high resolution audio is often over-looked at the price of convenience. The FiiO X7 changes that,” says Raghav Somani, CEO of Headphone Zone about the FiiO X7.

The FiiO X7 is available for purchase in India at at an MRP of Rs.49,999/-

The X7 is FiiO’s first Android-based Digital Audio player that has overcome Sample Rate Conversion (SRC) limitations. It comes with a customizable music app. X7’s music player app can take over the audio sub system and take its own SRC-free path to the DAC, outputting music of all sample rates at their native sample rates, ensuring lossless quality.

While developing the FiiO Music App, FiiO wanted to cater to the needs of the most serious audiophiles. The sheer volume of an audiophile's audio library was taken into consideration to create an app capable of seamlessly supporting a vast collection of music files across all formats be it DXD, DSD 64/128, PCM @384kHz/64bit, FLAC, ALAC, WAV, or APE.

It has a high-impact 3.97” multi-touch screen which supports upto 5 simultaneous touch points; utilized in numerous gesture operations. The X7 utilizes the Rockchip's RK3188 SoC, with 4 Cortex-A9 cores running at 1.4GHz for smooth music playback under all circumstances. It comes with a 1GB high-speed RAM and 32GB internal memory for faster app loading and smoother multi-tasking.

With customizable mapping for left / right hand control and symmetrical button design, the X7 comes with 6 hard buttons, 3 on each side which may be mapped on either left / right for most comfortable control.

The X7 uses a 6061 aluminium as used in iPhone6S chassis. A block 6061 aluminium shall be cut into size, CNC machined, polished, sand blasted and brushed, colour anodized, diamond-cut, installed with rivets, inspected and packaged before it becomes an X7 chassis.
The Process of making a FiiO X7 takes a total of 410 mintues: 160 min chassis CNC machining + 80 min colour anodizing + 100 min button machining + 50 min amp module machine.
The quality assurance department monitors all stages of development and production. The Engineering department inspects performance of all X7 assemblies and sub-assemblies, with quality assurance department monitoring throughout.
With the FiiO X7, the company continues to redefine the standard for digital audio players all over the world by constantly innovating and setting the benchmark for personal audiophile products.
