Now if they can get rid of the stupid wheel based user interface and give us the option of a list interface, and a properly working "Back" (Path Memory) button. I would be happy, providing the sound does not change again with the next Firmware...

 

One would expect these kinds of problems from a FOSS based code, or is it the company who wrote the BS proprietary base code just really doesn't`t have a clue.

They must have hired Colorfly`s code monkeys, but with the Colorfly C3 you knew the limitations up front and also knew they would never get fixed.

I've already proved its possible to make a list based theme. Not too hard, you should try making one your self, make it anyway you want.... You can also read many comments - some from myself - about near flawless operation. I really can't say why some folks have nothing but trouble, but others have none. Talk about ymmv.

Trolldragon,

 

Can you name another sub $200 dap that processes audio as clearly and precisely as the X3?

 

For those of us whom are not oozing with funds, it is a godsend. 

 

With it, come some growing pains.  

 

What is the name of the other sub $200 dap which is clearly superior?  Or do you like to compare Porsche and Volkswagen?

 

I, for one, knew full well I was purchasing a VW.  And, a damn fine one as well.

 

Thank you Fiio.

I sure can, the Colorfly C3 for $85 sounds just a good as the X3, if not better depending on your choice of a neutral player or not as the C3 is very neutral and very clean.

 

You don't need to be oozing with money to have great sound which is another Head-Fi "noob" misconception.

+1 To the above comment. C3 is an excellent sounding unit and amps clean from HO,

I'll try assume you're not trying too be too much of a jerk with that statement. We beta testers identified a lot of bugs and really tried to make a difference. However, we don't employ the coders, so cut us some slack, man!

Dammit.  Touche.  I should have been more specific.  

 

You're right, but I meant with a built in amp. 

 

At the same time, I should stop blowing sunshine.  I really don't know what I'm talking about!  

 

Touche.  Dammit!

I was "not trying too (sic) be too much of a jerk with that statement."

Just a bit. :smile:

I am very happy with my X3 and all the improvements since i bought it (FW 1.05?)

it was more of a comment vis-à-vis the continual expressions of dissatisfaction of various other posters.

Ah, I see. they're too much of a jerk wink_face.gif

Seriously though, anyone who wants to complain without signing up to help should either sell their X3 and move on or keep quiet (my humble opinion).

Sorry if I was overly sensitive. Server ate an important presentation I was working on on Friday, and I was busy working on a home improvement project today, and I HATE home improvement projects!!!

You have my deepest sympathy, on both counts (server ate our LDAP last week).
