Well I decided to go the colorfly c3 route with amp, the x3 is still to expensive to get as early adopter in europe. It costs 200 euro which is 260 usd and that is without shipping. That still is great value compared to other daps, but I am sure prices will go down a bit as supply will go up. For now I decided to wait more and postpone if I find the c3 good.
I have been following this x3 thread for a while and it seems an almost perfect dap. I do think it will be updated and bugfixed alot quicker then c3 and it should sound great!
Actually the c3 and x3 cannot be easily compared imho, the ui and its features are way better then on c3. The c3 has no built in amp that could match the output power from the x3. Still I am looking forwards for someone comparing x3 and c3 with amp. Then x3 with amp on LO and same amp on c3 HO. Soundquality would matter most. Gladly both daps are in the pricerange that one can have both .
Why exactly did you go for the C3?
Colour me confused.
