Who says portable hi-res audio players have to be expensive? Not FiiO. Adrian Justins asks if the X1 is as cheerful as it is cheap
If you’ve been itching to get into portable hi-res audio but can’t justify the outlay of an expensive player, the FiiO X1 is here to try and lure you in. At a whisker under £100 this is by far the most affordable hi-res digital audio player (DAP), with its closest competitors being the Sony NWZ-A15 and FiiO’s own X3 Mk 2, both of which sell for £159.
