Last I remember. The arrival time is near guaranteed. Not officially but most get it in 4 days.

Their website is pretty barren. But their Amazon counterpart is filled with glowing reviews and no problems.

I also had no problems with them. They bundled stuff and offered good bundle deals and provided quick shipping. They shipped with a cheaper usps pckg so tracking wasnt up to speed but that wasnt their fault.

Do you expect to find something that subtracts, say, the $120 cost of the E17 from the X3 and gets you a pure digital source for $80?? Not going to happen. Ever. 

 

The X3 @ $200 is as good as a digital transport you are going to find, anywhere, at that cost. Get it and bypass the DAC/amp if that's what you want to do. I think a lot of users are going to do exactly that and be perfectly fine doing so. It's still a bargain. 

Agreed. I was just hoping I could find another dap out there that is possibly cheaper though that could act as just a music source though.

Given that an ampless and especially DACless DAP would appeal to a very small crowd of hardcore OCD-ridden enthusiasts, the price for such unit would probably only be higher so that FiiO could get back all the money spent on R&D.

Now that the research is done, maybe they're gonna scale the X3 down and make X1 with pretty much the same firmware, provided there's at least some demand for that.

 

BTW, what's your dream setup? Is there a perfect DAC/amp? Or are you willing to lug around a three-piece combo? Are you sure you're going to be able to hear the difference on the go?

I heard (from the nz dealer) that it's coming to nz as soon as released.

I have a feeling that X3 will be a great success. People will forget about the other DAP's.

I have to congratulate Fiio James for it and we waiting for X3 release in England.

I believe FiiO sends out the units to the dealers in the first week of June is what they said. So hitting F5 for in stock X3's is probably not gonna come tonight wink.gif

The iPod Classic has many shortcomings but one thing it is fantastic for is creating it's own playlists:

 

* There is virtually no limit to the number of songs one can include in each playlist (unlike the limitation on the Cowon J3, which is infuriating)

 

* The iPod Classic allows creation of MULTIPLE playlists (unlike Cowon J3, which only allows one playlist - again, this is infuriating).

 

* One thing the Cowon J3 is really good for, though, is allowing creation of usable bookmarks, on-the-go.

 

 

Anyway, can anyone confirm what capability the X3 has for creation of it's own playlist(s)?

 

Thanks!

 

This is important. Anyone?..

What exactly? All of those requests? I can see them being handy, but whether or not it is important is up to you.

Now this here is important to note. 

 

Apple's DAP's ruled/rule the world and they don't feature a majority of the stuff that many of us want here. 

 

Sometimes compromises have to be made. And with that being said, it also needs to be debated if not having a UI feature will kill the device. Many people wanted X on the iPod but never got it implemented. It may have been decided that it would cluter too much, make it not look good, or not be worth it because most don't need the feature.

 

With my 'other' side argument out of the way. (It's good to be objective ph34r.gif)

 

I personally do like all the requests you guys make. Because the 'other' DAP's are of course for the regular guys. rolleyes.gif. James may have said that this wasn't exactly audiophile. But we all know who the buyers are going to be. biggrin.gif

Whoa! Now hang on.

 

NONE of my quoted post was in the form of 'requests' - it was a discussion of what the iPod Classic and J3 (variously) have had for the past several years, followed by a question as to what equivalent playlist implementation (if any) the X3 has.  It would be rather surprising (and disappointing) to me if there is absolutely no playlist functionality whatsoever on the X3 - it's an extremely common and useful feature for those of us who like to create a playlist according to spontaneous moods whilst out and about, rather than being forced to settle for listening to entire albums, or repeatedly having to re-select alternate track choices, or settling for 'Random' (which does not cater for a particular mood).

 

If the answer is'No', then I don't see why James can't simply say so, or, instead, inform of us of any playlist provision that, perhaps, may be a part of the X3 firmware.

 

 

P.S.:  peace.  Just wanted to be clear, that's all.

I have been adding smiley emoticon faces to my posts because people never get my tone. frown.gif

 

I like to type. I'm an avid typer that likes to type on my keyboard.

 

These posts of mine are just me thinking about the market and how it reacts to these things. Nothing really directed at anyone.popcorn.gif

 

Same thing as discussion.  bigsmile_face.gif (smiley face anyone?)

 

Anyway, I guess I'll always get some people angry at me frown.gif Sorry if I did. Just me typing and wanting to join in and talk about DAP's.
