This needs to be released already!! Hopefully it will end my search for a portable DAP and amp as well :)

post #257 of 17125

I think I'm definitely going to be using my ALO Rx MK3 with it, since I intend to use the rig with a pair of Mad Dog orthos (on the hard side to drive). Hopefully I'll wind up with a cleaner signal going to the MK3 via the X3 (compared to the Sony F806).

Yes it does look good, and I hope will sound good, but when we can buy it?

I remember seeing this silicone render (I think it's a render), and the wallet-style one below.

But given that this is a piece of kit that many of us will develop an unhealthy affection for...

How about a Yotank-style?  Something unnecessarily masculine, for those of us who do extreme sports (like riding the bus).

second the though on the range of accessory it have. one thing i notice abt the ibasso dap is not much accessory in the market.

 

having said that, waiting for this DAP release!

If this was currently available, I'd shell out for it. Instantly.

hmmm maybe "READ THE FIRST POST BEFORE POSTING (UPDATE:March 20th) Fiio X3...." would be a better title, if bold and underline was available options for the title

Nope, I think that is the hm-602, not the hm801.

I can't believe I'm only today learning of the X3 - I'm so excited.  

 

Finally we will have an affordable, high quality DAP that plays FLAC, has a card reader, and a Line Out (instead of headphone out, or only optical out, as with the overpriced AK100).

 

What else can do this at even 96/24 resolution (or higher)?  

 

My Sony PCM-M10 has a card reader and Line Out with 96/24, but no support for FLAC, and its proprietary delta-sigma DAC is a tad grainy and bright.  

 

I'll be an early adopter of the X3 - hoping I like its DAC section.  Interface awkwardness,if any, won't be a problem for me.  (Try using a PCM-M10 as a DAP.)

1 April today, so James no more news about this X3?

Many thanks.

It now supports the new 

 

1TB XSDH TFT Card format 

 

and the Chinese also just released JREAP lossless format.

 

It's still in beta but it allows for sub MP3 file sizes while still maintaining lossless 'data'
