The Fiio X3 Thread. - Page 688

post #10306 of 17129

This weekend I played around with the DAC setting on my X3, mainly just to figure out how to do it. (I'm on a Mac.) Thanks to a Panda video, it was easy to do.

 

It  allowed me to set the Fiio X3 to 96/24, while leaving the Mac's headphone setting at 44.1/16. Since I have a fair amount of 96/24 ALAC files (ripped from DVDA discs), is there any disadvantage to also setting the Mac's headphone setting to 96/24 as my regular setting?

 

Or is there any reason for setting the DAC for the X3 at 192/24, if I don't have any 192/24 files?

I have also recently tried out the X3 as a desktop DAC and it does the job just as effectively as my FiiO E10. I like the fact that the X3 has a bigger range of EQ. I prefer to listen to my computer audio through the E10 though because of the dial.

How to delete the database file in the X3 disk?
1. Please connect the X3 with your computer via the USB cable first, and find the X3 disk in the
computer after the X3 has been regconized.
2. Double click the X3 disk to enter the X3's internal memory. On the pop up dialog box, please go
to Tools—>Folders Options—>View—>Advanced Settings, and in order to display all the files in
the X3 disk, it is recommended to UNCHECK "Hide protected operating system files" option and
CHECK "Show hidden files, folders, or drives" under the folder of "Hide files and folders". You can
refer to the two red boxes on the attached picture.
3. After the second step done, please just delete the pop up database file named
"usrlocal_media.db ".
4. Disconnect the X3 with the computer, and update the library manually so as to create a new
database file (usrlocal_media.db) in the X3.
Note: Following Step 3, it's suggested to restore the settings mentioned in Step 2 to factory
default, in order to avoid deleting other important operating system files by mistake.

 what should i do

ive deleted all the music but the library is full

updating the library takes 40 min and doesnt change anything

Delete all the files from the internal disk (music_list.lst, usrlocal_media.db, and usrlocal_media.db-journal).

Hey, quick question. Is it somehow possible to play a directory and all sub directories in it?

post #10312 of 17129
Not yet. Common request, though. Hopefully Fiio will implement this option for us.

Is it possible to write a script to get the x3 to work with last.fm?

Didn't we already say "no" to this already?

How does the X3 handle gapless playback?

 

Wanna pull the trigger but just want to confirm.  Torn between the X3, X5 and DX50 or 90.  I have products from both iBasso and Fiio so know what they are about in terms of customer service and sound.  Just looking for a few deciding factors.

 

Thanks!

Well, prior to the beta firmware version 2.14b, I'd say...badly. Depending on what you're playing, it seems spotty, and in the case of 24 bit, 192 kHz FLAC, frequently crashed my unit.

 

With the 2.14b firmware, it's much better. It's not "true" gapless, I don't think. For anything I've tried that's under 24/96, it sounds flawless, but as soon as you get to 24/96 or 24/192 FLAC, you can notice a bit of a click when it's transitioning to the new track.

 

That's just my personal experience, so your mileage may vary.

Thanks umdesch4,

 

Most of my gapless albums are 16/44.1 (house, trance, live etc.).  So basically with 16/44.1 it plays flawlessly on the transition with no clicks?

 

I also have been trying to keep up with the firmwares.  I'm guessing if I purchase from Amazon it would come with the 2.1?

 

Thanks again
