This it the second fiio product that has died prematurely on me, and will be the last product I buy from this company. Not impressed.
I think you have just been unluckey. What was your other FiiO product?
I have have the E5, E10 E11, D03K and the X3 all by FiiO and they are still all working fine accept the odd noise issue with my E10. FiiO are getting much better with their customer service. I had an issue with my E11 the first year I got it and it got sorted out. My E11 is now several years old and looks pretty damaged, dented and scratched but it is still working fine.
The one thing that is a shame is the 1 year warranty on FiiO products.
You could try sending FiiO an e-mail about your issue even if it is out of warranty and see what they say. I am sure they will reply.
