The Fiio X3 Thread. - Page 88

post #1306 of 17125

I'm quite excited by the coming released of the X3 and hope to purchase one when it becomes available.  I don't expect it to match the DAP benchmark set by the DX100 for me.  If anything, I'm quite found of the fact that it will act as a really good transport for my hirez/lossless files without the need of computer.

Same here. That might be the final nail in the coffin for me. Sure I could hook up another amp, but an all-in-one solution at $200 is just so tempting. Guess I'll wait and see what the X5 has to offer.

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.


I have nothing but good things to say about Mecca

I am hoping for some good news soon about the release from them. For now, I sit and wait patiently. bigsmile_face.gif

I wished that Fiio made the X3 have a larger footprint, but thinner. That way, it will be more portable.

You wish this,I wish that. Etc
Let's be grateful that Fiio James will give us the best DAP for the money. Is anything better and cheaper out there? No!

Maybe for the X5? Or is that out as well already? The X3 seems like the benchmark for what $200 can buy though. It may even be better than the AK100 because of the 22 ohm impedance.

No, the X5 is expected towards the end of the year. It's dimensions so far are cited as:

 

Quote:
3. X5 is wider than X3 by 1 cm (about same width as iPod Classic). X5 is thinner than X3 and of about the same length of X3.

(See the first post in the X5 thread.)

looks like some possible options of integrating in a hi-fi set-up which will be a boon... the X3 does appeal forsure & the X5 could be a game changer if FiiO & gets it right.

Or get one from Hong Kong on ebay....

post #1320 of 17125

I don't  have good luck ordering from Hong Kong. The shipping can get a bit sketchy and the wait time even longer. I'll hold out for a US distribution for now. 

 

Thanks for the suggestion though...
