Well they are like 2 different flavors of sound but I would definitely give the nod to the X3s overall ability..The amp section of the X3 helps tremendously with more power hungry phones. The Z is quite not powerful enough. I would say it works with about 80% of my phones with no issues but some of them I am pushing max volume. The X3 has no problems pushing 100% of what I own with ease and that is a big plus..I used my Z ever since it came out. I know that sound really well and still love that sound actually..The X3 has a fuller more spacious deeper mid section and even a stronger bass end over the Z..I find the highs sound more spacious as well. The Zs stage is excellent but the X3 has showed me the added depth it has over the Z which adds to the 3D like imagery Wolfson dacs are known for..If I do have a complaint I would say the X3 needs a more wider presentation of sound but for what it has it is a roomy sound and dimentiality akin to listening to a full end system on the go. That is completely worth it for that presentation alone imo.

 

Now if I throw on my 2stepdance amp on my Z then we are talking about bringing the sound of the Z to another level similar to the X3 by itself. But the whole idea of players like the X3 DX50 is so you don't have to have another slab of beef on the side of your order..

Btw, I think the work on the vsonic's DAP is going strong coz the ceo posted this image saying that this is what they made 13 years ago. 

He's probably implying that if they made this so long ago we can't even imagine what they can do now. popcorn.gif

This is not one of those cases where I am gonna just throw my Z in the trash. Like I said I love my Z and will use it till I cant recharge the battery but there is a different level of sound these dedicated Daps have with built in amps and using dac chip like a WM8740..The players sound is on a different level and the fact that you can play lossless files up to 24 bit...I loaded up some 24bit files but they are kinda pointless as they take up so much space for not much difference in sound so I stuck to flac and MP3 files. I like that these players are priced to be affordable too..

 

It is going to be interesting to hear how close the DX50 will come to ibasso's flagship the DX100 in ability and sound..I am sure there is a reason why the DX100 cost so much but will it be worth over 3X more is the question.

 

If you look beyond the minor UI quibles the X3 sound is easily worth what Fiio is charging them for and more. If you keep the folder structure fairly simple and format your cards to fat format it is all good. I am so impressed with the X3 I am now seriously considering the X5.

I thought you were intending to wait and get the X5 all along but cracked coz you lack patience and went for the X3 biggrin.gif

Ya I would expect a flurry of X3 sales on the used forums once that player hits. That might be a great time to snap up on a used X3.

Yup, I suspect that the x5 will be da bomb :-)

Nah, don't worry I'm definitely not after your title but there are plenty of young guns who might make you work for it again.

As far as the DAC talk - I'll be skipping on the geek. It's definitely interesting but I have zero use for anything above 24/96 coz the difference in sq is so minor it can't justify the file size to save its life.  At the most i might pick up the new asynchronous Hifimediy to test it

@Dsnuts, you might be interested in this phone: http://www.head-fi.org/t/678441/signature-acoustics-c-12-review.  Joker also reviewed them on #294.  I thought they might be up your alley for a budget bass heavy iem.  I think it is the first iem out of India.
