The all-new X5 also inherits various helpful design touches that we learned from previous models such as the 3 closely spaced but unique side control buttons—recessed power button, raised volume+ button with tactile dot, and raised volume- button without tactile dot together allow speedy unsighted control without risk of mis-press. The status LED has been moved to the side to avoid glare in usage. Various control schemes allow flexible control of the player even while the screen is off.

The all-new X5 also supports 10-EQ and user-defined playlist(.m3u/m3u8), and can switch between 5 different display themes on the same firmware.  It utilizes an all-new digital audio architecture JZ4760B+ SA2000+ PCM1792A+ PGA2311A, and is able to decode native DSD64/128, and directly play SACD ISOs.  Other lossless formats such as WAV, FLAC, APE, WMA, ALAC, AIFF, etc. are also supported at up to 192 kHz/24 bit. To avoid interpolating the DSD signal for volume control, we added Texas Instruments’best analog volume controller PGA2311A, ensuring the most faithful reproduction of DSD while avoiding issues with knob potentiometers such as channel imbalance and poor durability.

The all-new X5 employs two silicon crystal oscillators, handling multiples of 44.1kHz (44.1/88.2/176.4kHz, DSD64/128) and 48kHz (48/96/192kHz) respectively. Moreover, it employs the SiTime MEMS oscillator which has a wider working temperature range and jitter within 1ps, improving accuracy by 25 times.

The player is priced at Rs. 24,499 and is available at leading retail and ecommerce websites.
