It's still months until release so its looking good at the very least.

 

Thanks for your impressions man.

 

Yeah, anything will look like a brick next to the F800 series. It's something like 8mm I think (thin) if I remember right.

X3 had a very nice form factor... a touch shorter than the F806, and about twice the thickness. Not bulky at all and very pocketable. I did some listening with my Fitears, and I got the impression it provided very smooth and detailed sound even though I was listening to music which was totally unfamiliar to me. It did hang up and crash a couple times... definitely still in engineering mode, but was simple to navigate around and menus were very intuitive. With the (hopefully) solid sound quality, highly transportable form, memory expansion, and decent battery life, seems it should still be a winner after the development time it has been through.

 

Kudos Fiio guys. I had a great time in the booth.

(apologies for not wiping down all the fingerprints before snapping the images!)

 

OT: hows the E12 and the F800 bro?

Probably too late. How about dual microSD slots for extra memory?  :)

I dont want to be rude, but that brushed metallic finish for the X3 somehow make it look 'unfinished'. I knowit will hide scratches etc. bt somehow compared with the Z the look just isnt there.

 

Can this play video too?

That really would be great!

Having said that though, if we can use SDXC cards we might eventually see 2TB cards anyway?

As long as there isn't a limit on the number of files like Cowon put on the D2, that's pretty important too :-(

Sounded really nice together. Adds somewhat more of a full sound to the F806...

Question...how high impedance can's can this X3 drive?

 

Hmmm....that didn't come out right...but you get my drift.

Generally there is no upper limit on impedance for a transistor based amp, with higher and higher impedances being driven better and better (since a high impedance represents a small load and smaller loads are easier to drive then big ones).  However, its hard to design high sensitivity headphones with very high impedances, so you may find that high impedance headphones have few dB/volt and thus require an amplifier with a very high drive voltage to reach high volumes.  

 

So the short answer is that you need to look at the sensitivity of your headphones.  If its very low, you may have a problem.

good good.. i should buy one... since it has the same length as the F.. unlike the arrow xD

It's a pure music player.

As far as we know that is only the demo unit (prototype). That doesn't mean it's a finished unit that the consumers will have. From some of those pictures they posted I think it has the potential to be a very sexy looking DAP. Just not sure if I'm really in the market for anymore players lol. I gotta run away from the ugraditis bit, especially when it entails not upgrading :P. I think that has at least been a problem for me with 1/3 of my total purchases lol.

I hope it can fully drive my 150ohm re-262. With AD8397 amp chip i think its not that hard.

Yeah, the form factor together was just about ideal. Even the Fiio guys were surprised at how well it lined up.
