Could be true. I would be happy to see a Cirrus Logic DAC inside a X3 and maybe also some other amp-section, without the often used AD-opamps. Seeing how Fiio is progressing with technology and style, it would be only natural to release a next gen X3. I will wait here for any update
Man I wish to have this player, but Santa does not to spend so much money on me... I have to be happy with socks. Sorry to hear about this Database issue. I am sure Cowon will look into it anyway. I noticed that they even release new firmware for the D3.
