The FiiO X3 Thread UPDATE: Project Back On! Read the First Post for Information. - Page 231  

post #3451 of 3613

Same here. My iPod Classic's HDD died back in November... so it's been a long wait for the X3. My iPod can hold a maximum of TWO albums without the HDD giving out, so I've been swapping songs every day since.

 

Please, FiiO. Give us a sign that the X3 is really coming soon.

James told me via PM that release is now April for China, and June for the rest of the world.

JUNE!!!! its too long....but if thats the time FIIO should take to give quality DAP with bug free UI then I'm ready to wait

post #3455 of 3613

My Meizu miniplayer (one famous DAP made by Chinese company) has lots of bugs, with very poor compatibility with MAC.

So, it is definitely worth spending more time on the UI. 

I wish we could use Rockbox on X3...

It's not THAT far away...

It will be summer by the time the X3 comes out, but that's OK...

You just have some more time thinking up a playlist of music to play...

Why don't you just get off Head-fi and call it a day...

I guess the X3 April Launch is just speculation.
At this time, there is no information about X3 in Fiio website.
So far anyone has the latest product spec?
I am very interested to know what is the SNR and DAC chip in X3?

April is just an internal projection from FiiO. It really depends on how fast they can wrap up R&D and go into full production.

 

DAC has been mentioned before, Wolfson WM8740. SNR won't come out till final production is ready.

I think they've chosen all the right compromises and like that they aren't rushing it. We just need to wait for the results,bigsmile_face.gif

Some rumors say the Wolfson WM8741 will be used in X3 instead. Not sure how true is this?

I checked the Wolfson website, apparently WM8741 has a better spec. than Wolfson WM8740.

feiao (JamesFiiO) said a million times that the X3 will be using the Wolfson WM8740 (as stated in the first post of this thread). Not going to argue with your "rumors", however I'm prone to give some more credit to FiiO CEO. biggrin.gif

At the moment there is no official published product spec for X3, therefore any last minute changes can be happened.confused_face.gif

No,...only the software needs work. The hardware is finalized.

post #3464 of 3613
Only software is left? Great :P

Too bad there's no chance of an open source X3

Err. no. Forget where I read it, but some engineer actually took the time to look into both and conclude that there is no significant difference between the two. Whatever improvement WM8741 has is mostly on paper.

 

As said, It has been 100% confirmed by FiiO that X3 will use WM8740.
