Will this be E17-sized? How does it compare to the E17 in terms of DAC and amp?

 

 

Edit to add a couple notes. I appreciate aesthetics as much as anyone, but I would test the button layout for a little while before putting it to market. By and large we are conditioned "left = previous, right = next". The groove in which the previous/next buttons sit may help, or it may be useless; like I said, I would test this for a little while first. The same applies to volume up/down. It would be very nice to have a small, high-quality DAP that we can control without seeing it (without taking it from our pockets, for example).

 

the button layout was discussed here last year before the halt of the project, just grab a phone or something similar, recreate that diagonal movement with your thumb and see and feel how much more natural it is than the typical cross layout.

 

besides, I'm certain that it will only take you or anyone else a couple minutes of use to memorize it and use it without watching.

and it is cheaper than other hifi audio players.

 

it's been a long time and still I want this so badly, more like I need it to be honest.

Please forgive me but what do you mean by silk screen? That has to do with screen resolution? Or the UI run smooth as silk? Can we replace battery? Regarda, Levi

silk screen is what we print on the front pannel so the user can understand what the function of the bottom. I just want to see if the design is clear enough.

 

the battery can't be replaced by user.

The front and back look great! Could we get "silk screens" of the sides, top, and bottom? biggrin.gif

Silk screen looks good to me, as long as the line out / coaxial out / etc. are all labeled too.

 

Just waiting to see dimensions now, I guess. smile.gif

First off, it's looking fantastic. Keep up the excellent work.

Second, the battery can be replaced by >this< user. wink.gif

I can't WAIT until it's April release,...

Not having a lossless format and external storage would be a deal breaker for many. I personally use LAME MP3 -v0 for music on the go but many dont and are already putting a 64GB micro SD card on their wishlist for the X3

Wild guess, long day of excessive drinking while playing with ROM's on your SIII? Enjoy the bottom video biggrin.gif

April release? Holy crap! Will it be Rockbox compatible? That's an amazing price-point for the hardware you're selling.

The X3 will have lossless (and an SD card slot), it's just not clear yet whether it'll have ALAC. And I can see how transcoding a huge ALAC collection for those who have one can be a bit of a hassle but regardless, FLAC is a better lossless format for DAPs because it's very easy on the battery.

A small notion.....Please show me any picture of Steve Jobs listing to the ipod in his daily life!!!!!

Steve liked everything about the Ipod except its sound

Prove me wrong.

He only listened to LP, and was developing a HD music store and a player with Neil Young.....PONO?
