Any reason you did not consider to use the Sabre ESS9018 32Bit DAC Chip?confused.gif

Because ESS9018 is the best DAC Chip in the world according to some HiFi experts.

I would say cost the X3 should cost ~ $150-180 USD the DX100 cost more then $800USD  that people think that they should be the same in mind boggling to me.

That does not answer my question.
What is the X3 missing to be called "audiophile"?

about $600 worth of stuff and battery to power it. Mainly unicorn poo and Leprechaun snot. 

 

Are you asking features or parts?

Nah, nevermind :/
Maybe I just don't get what it takes a DAP to be called "audiophile" I thought it was just about the SQ, the number of supported formats, lots of storage and beeing able to drive even more demanding headphones/IEMs properly.

FiiO states it's not going to be an audiophile dap, but I'll bet we'll all be pleasantly surprised. Especially at the price point it's being released at. I think they just don't want us to expect the moon & stars,...I like how they work.

From what they've said in this thread it's not an audiophile based player. But, from past experience with their amps, I think we'll have no complaints. I am disappointed about the May/June release schedule. But, sadly, we have no control over that.

Can't wait for the X5. In the mean time, however, my iPod Classic 7g is fine...though it will be replaced by the X3
