The Fiio X3 Thread. - Page 178

post #2656 of 12290

I've been using x3 for couple of days and found 1 serious bug in the latest firmware.

 

Occasionally, when playing musics (standard MP3 files) following sequence of button manipulation triggers freezing of the device:

1. While playing - Press Play/Pause button to stop playing

2. Press Bookmark/Back button to return to list

3. About for 10% of probability (rough estimation), the screen only shows background image except top information line part (track number, volume, play mode, battery status)

4. The device doesn't respond to any button manipulations, except Reset button.

5. The device can be restarted by repeated 'Reset - multiple click of Play button' combination.

 

I hope this is firmware related issue and can be fixed in the next update.

 

Thank you for reading.

Hence you will not see any feedback about the goods yet, or that's what the scammer want you to believe.

 

But go on and buy them if you want to experiment, but don't say that I didn't warn you later.

Of course, I will not because I can get it easily from local seller for approx. $210. biggrin.gif

Pretty sure as there's only 1 headphone output, 1 coaxial output and 1 line out output. The mini USB port is for charging and synchronizing.

Hi,

 

I am sure as I have X3 with the latest firmware installed. I just want to recap that James mentioned he is not going to include this feature in future firmware upgrade. E17 is a handy gadget to keep around e.g. the office if you just want to play music on laptop with good quality.If you must have the USB/DAC function on your DAP, you can try AK100, but the price is more than X3 + E17

I don't know about anybody else, but I could care less if my portable audio player had USB DAC functionality. The music I want to listen to would be on the DAP already. wink.gif

For goodness sake,

 

1) if you need a USB DAC, then Fiio will be happy to sell you one, and at a very reasonable price

 

2) if you need a DAP, then Fiio will be happy to sell you one, and at a very reasonable price

 

 

Why do people expect to have both for $200 bucks?

I think the "issue" isn't firmware related. The X3 can't be used as a USB or S/PDIF DAC because it wasn't designed with that goal in mind, end of story.

Other countries you may or may not be charged, you should contact your local fedex or customs office, or better yet ask any friends/family who may have experience with purchasing abroad and using fedex if they got taxed.

 

About MP4 Nation & X3 preorders: We will only sell how many we can order, when we will get the stock depends on FiiO own production of the X3, hopefully we get them sooner than later and please be understanding if there are delays caused by this for the final delivery. Should we sell the amount of units we have requested during the preorder then we will close the preorder sale.

Thanks very much for the information!

Seriously, though, if USB Dacs are your thing, and you like Fiio gear, maybe you should wait and upgrade to the E19 when it eventually becomes available:

AAARRRGH!!!!!!!!!  It NEVER fails!  As soon as I pop for something I have been wanting to get for a long time, some stupid financial disaster slaps me upside the head! mad.gif

I gotta cancel my pre-order...which should free up one of the X3's for somebody.frown.gif NUTS!!

Thank you for reading.

hmm many are not happy after paying over 200$ for this DAP, no i am thinking of going DX50..... Fiio is filled with bugs that will make me throw it to the ground.... i mean seriously Fiio people are paying a lot here... test the damn DAP before selling it to people other than updating it 2-3 times where they are still suffering from the bugs,,, at least sansa clip+ didnt fail on that...

will wait 1-2 months and i really hope the X3 became bugless so i can buy it
