Added a little bit of internal memory)
Met with a fellow head-fier last night, testing out the X3 with my JVC SZ-1000 headphones. It really opens them up over using the old iPod and E17. I was super impressed with the clarity, and general hi-fi sound out of the X3. It was clean power to really open up the 1000's, which are hard to drive to my preferences (notorious basshead), and the X3 did it easily. I was so impressed, I ordered one. Can't wait to get the shipping notification, and to have it in my hot little hands. Already have a 128Gb memory card on the way, so I should be set for a while. I love the fact of having SSD memory over my iPod, means I can use it in more situations, and not worry about damage to the HDD.
Really nice done, good to know that is possible, so you can have with this mod 256 GB storage with two 128 GB mircoSD cards <3
Can you provide us with more details on exactly what was done (including part numbers)? I see some white wire jumpers and assume those are all required for the mod (so you can address the extra memory). Thanks...
There already is one... sort of... it's been dedicate to changing the op-amps in the X3 to achieve a different sonic signature:
Not sure if ClieOS wants to make it a general mod thread.
Ohhh Yesssss I remember that DAC mod !!!
I just telling this, because this thread is so so big now, I could read only the las 100 pages, this night I will try to read 100 more jejejej
But no problem luckily the forum has a good search engine !!
Finally I could get very good audio quality from the Fiio X3 as external DAC using Audirvana (Vox and Itunes distorts the sound, sure these applications are altering the sound).
These are my setting, I guess in this way the audio is delivered to the external DAC with the minimum manipulation.
Anyone has any recommended settings to get the best sound from Audirvana with X3?
Thanks Guys !!!
