:beerchug: ha ha ha ha ha. It's a risk, which may result in some "couch time"

Ok, 2.19b sounds as good as 2.14b, so best SQ ever + improved stability = way to go. Now I'm happy ;)

 

3.0 sounds too bad to be used by these ears. It's a truly sissapointement its SQ (IMHO, of course). Hope FiiO improves this in a future FW update. I'm patient and am happy, really happy with 2.19b till there (if ever...). If they don't, 2.19b gives me 90% of the SQ of X5, its stable for the way I use it, so I'm perfectly fine with the beta.

Personally I still find X5 to be a superior player without a doubt.

This is good to know :beerchug:

I hope they further tweak the sound so that the X5 is more comparable to the DX90 than it currently is. Reading impressions it seems the X5 sounds a tad bit harsher than the DX90, I hope Fiio gives this some attention!

Q: Where can I DL a copy of FW2.19b? It seems the beta testers are not allowed to share, but I'd like to try this out, if SQ is different from FW3.0.

double post.

Beware of anybody who tells you what you are hearing - it's much like a jedi mind trick ("...these are not the droids we are after...') and can implant expectation bias into those who are susceptible to the power of suggestion. Trust your own ear/brain interface.

X3 with FW 3.0 as DAC on a Mac Mini.

I skipped the whole 2.14b thang, but I'm listening to my first song with 3.0. I set the bass at 3 and that is way to much so I rolled it back. Then set it back to 3 which is way too much so I set it back to 1. It's at 3 right now. Fun. So far I think FW 3.0 is one louder.

Um, I'm just guessing here, but do you like the bass at 3?

I don't know yet. I see 4 is also an option. Must resist 4.

I am listening with B&W P5's at the moment. They are somewhat tubby on their own, but I can't resist the thunder.

(Jimmy Page and Robert Plant - No Quarter - Four Sticks, yow!)

I was listening with bass on 5 with my Yuin ok3 when going to sleep last night and forgot to roll it back to 0 when I plugged in my HE400 at work - YOWZA!!! Rolled that back to 0 pretty quick smily_headphones1.gif.

You can always ask FiiO to investigate the possibility. For what I know, X3 still has a fairly strong sale even after X5 release, and they already sold more X3 than X5, so there is the incentive for them to create accessories for it.

Anyone else try to play aiff files? I was listening to them fine on FW2.1 and now they won't play on FW3.0 at all and freeze my X3 - upon restart I have to reset all my settings, it goes back to factory install…weird?

I also see a bunch of goop on my card like .trashes and .temporayitems files...

when I look at the folders with AIFF files on them each song is repeated twice once with a dot prefix.

Sux - as I had a whack of albums on my card in AIFF.

@rocker: did you transfer the files on a Mac (or other Unix-type system)? Sounds like you need to clean up the hidden files and re-scan your library!

Yup - straight from iTunes to the card…what's up with that?
