It's pretty much on par with ak120! eek.gif

 

 

For those who can't understand Korean, the conclusion is

 

1 Not the best specifications but very respectable.

2 User interface is a bit slow and fiddly.

3 A shame there is no Optical/USB DAC functionality

Hmm, wonder why my desire for this gizmo isn't abating at all!

the most result have not problem but they must forget to set the gain to high so the output voltage is limited to 1.5V which should be 2.9V. Not sure if someone can ask them correct the test

Remember that AK100 has such a good looking spec is because they skip almost the whole amp section. It is essentially DAC->buffer->headphone, so there is less things to add noise. But consider the high output impedance and very weak output, it is pretty much a way of cheating for just a good looking spec by not implementing a proper amp section.

James,

Just would like to ask can I backup the previous firmware before do an update?

If after update can I downgrade it back to previous version?

sorry, you can't, but we can send you if you need.

I think they've added high gain results - turned out to be 2.972 Vrms. Nice.

2, it will be better use a blank TF card , but so far it work in most time even the TF card is not blank, and the upgrade will not clean any music files.

I dont have a card reader at work, what I did was
1. Connect x3 to computer
2.move music files from sd card so it becomes empty
3. Copy firmware into sd card
4. Unplug and power off x3
5. Press those two buttons and upgraded successfully

never mind, we will studying and make better and better in the future, and you will see it when you compare the UI between 1.0 and 1.2. and the UI of X5 will be a big step from X3 too because we will use a 2.4 inch 480*360 LTPS screen which used in Blackberry 9100. 

 

do remember good UI need good screen.
