This.

I don't know if any of you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, but everytime a new beta is released, the number of people leaving negative feedback in the appstore because the apps crash on a beta firmware version thousandfold.


Don't be these people. Just wait for a stable release, or join the beta group to actually help make it stable.

I was just being a punk, excuse me. Glad to be a new owner of the x3.

Interesting, but not state of the art.

Oh man you have any "recommended" oscilloscopes. The only audio I've done and I would not say it's even a test more just having fun with my crappy speaker setup when 3ohm sub is connected to 8ohm outputs!

Hey guys.  Long time lurker.  Got my X3 back in August and have really enjoyed it (although I keep looking at the X5).  I've tried back reading a bunch and didn't see this mentioned, but has anybody else had their hold switch break off?  I can still slide the switch with a pin/paper clip.

I suggest contacting FiiO or the company you bought it from.

OK, I don't have the 2.18beta, but the 2.14beta and personally, I like the 2.1 a bit more when it comes to sq.

So it is not just a feeling. i tried yesterday 2.14b with beyer dt880. 2.1 sq seemed better to me too but i'll give 2.14b a chance again today.

Some previous posts say that mp3 sound is better but, c'mon, we didn't buy for mp3 :)

We most certainly did not.

Some amps can become unstable under excessive loading but it seems your receiver is OK.

for now. 808 kick in a song (which is in most to all electronic music) seems to be the pushing point on it. About 5 minutes it will shutdown with high volume and you do smell a bit of plastic burning. Turning it back on and it's solid!

For those of you who do rips from vinyl for playing on the X3… what do you rip them to?  192/24 WAV?  192/24 FLAC?  96/24 ALAC, WAV, FLAC?  I've done so many compare & contrasts, my ears are giving up.

Honestly you'd probably be fine with 24/48 FLACs.  I really doubt you will hear a difference.  WAV is pointlessly large, no reason not to use compression.  I'd go with FLAC.  Most Vinyl rips I've seen are 24/96 FLACs.

New to Fiio X3 and this forum, just wanted to inform all that I use a Sandisk Ultra 64GB card without any problem what so-ever, I just popped it into the X3 and formatted it and since all is just great, the X3 is running the 2.1 firmware.

 

Hope this helps for those looking for 64gb cards

Thanks guys for the confirmation! :)

Someone should really put the text these posts in the first post or something...

With audiophile headset you will hear difference between 24/48 and 24/96. So if you have one go with 24/96.
