Two obvious weaknesses so far - 1st, there is a very annoying 1 second fade-in effect on every track and there is no way to disable it. It is very annoying because it acts less like a fade-in and more like a 1 second cut-off, meaning I am losing the first second of every song. 2nd, severe bass roll-off. With a 16ohm IEM, corner frequency (-3dB) is as high as 80Hz.

Between Teclast X30 and Sansa Fuze, which one has a wider souns stage, clear vocal/ instrument separation ?

In your opinion, if Teclast X30 is a good DAP for playing FLAC?

I can live with an extra amp, but the 1 sec. fade-in is annoying as hell. The last FW update is 10 months ago and I seriously doubt we will see another, especially since X30SE is on the horizon.

X30 has a cleaner sound, but only because it doesn't offer much texture in bass. I picked X30 up for $30, and I think $5 more with the Clip Zip is a much wiser deal.

Hi ClieOS,

Have you tried the big brother of X30 which is C430+ with 1080 P?

Some said it has the best sound quality when platying lossless file such as FLAC.

It also support OTG, meaning you can play directly with your external devices like HD or thumb drive.

No, I have no interest in video player, only need a music player.

Got the player today. Very light, good sound quality, but the user interface is sluggish and annoying, and there is no english user manual. Sadly I doubt there will be a rockbox port for it, as it's a bit of a problem to find the relevant data sheets for the insides of this player.

 

My previous player was sansa fuze, but it seem to become extinct and I really don't want to pay 50 bucks for one.

 

It will do till I find something better, at upto 40 bucks. (preferably lower and still with micro-sd support)

Why didnt you pick up some sort of clip?  Is it the price. That is very interesting?

There are two versions, X30 and X30SE. I was told by a China Taobao seller, the older version is X30 which is thicker and heavier. Other than that, everything else is the same according to Teclast's own listing. None of his customers has commented on the difference of sound.

One of the things that really bugs me, is that when you want to play the contents of a folder, the order of the files is not according to the file names (EP80,EP81, so on so forth) but rather jumbled. It was pretty obvious to me with my previous players (and on my android phone) that the files play in the correct order as long as I name them properly.

Does the player support PLS or other playlist files?

I don't really like the clip design. besides, I love the fuze in big part due to it's wheel and rockbox compatibility.

 

Eventually, if sandisk or someone else won't put out a good new player (which it seems they won't), I might try and design one of my own.

Eh its fine, i never liked the tininess of the clip either (going to get a zip one day though, just to have one)

ClieOS,

Do you have both x30 and x30se?

What you said about the 1 sec fade in, do you managed to disable it?

 

If you have both, it worth buying the x30se or x30 is bether?

 

Thank you!

That's no way to disable the fade-in. It seems to be an issue due to firmware / hardware. I didn't buy X30SE as according to what I have read, the two are actually based on the same hardware. Only the case and the UI are revised. So they should be pretty much same sounding. Just get the cheaper one if you are interested.

Thank you for the advice!
I've bought it. When it arrive I'll try to give a feedback, at least about the fade-in problem.
