I couldn't resist anymore so I put in my preorder today. I'm really looking forward to try it out.

James, does the will my X3 allow for channel swapping? I looked at the specifications page and it didn't mention it. I have a pair of iems that I prefer to wear over ear (which reversed the channels).

 

Also, is there a pdf version of the manual that can be downloaded?

 

Thanks!

There is no channel swapping feature on the X3.

 

There is only channel balance, treble, bass, and gain.

 

Swap your over ear cables if they are removable. Otherwise, drop the song into Audacity and remix every one of your songs to include a channel swapped variant and export that.

Ok, thanks for the input. The cables can't be swapped, and the remixing isn't really a viable option for me either (unless I keep a separate 64G card for the remixed songs, which is something that doesn't appeal to me).

 

Who knows, maybe channel swapping will be in a future FW update. Or maybe the X3's will be able to be rockboxed someday.

 

Anyway, thanks again.

I'm in the process of writting the FiiO X3 review right now

 

IT IS MONSTROUS is all I can say. This is a DAP, so a lot of extra stuff is written.

 

This is really for people who WANT a review.

 

HOWEVER there will be overall sections after each important section for those wishing for the abridgment.

 

 

Please look forward to it everyone, and thank you all for your support.

3, We have not found any X3 become brick but of course, the quantity is not enough to make sure it will not happen, but we may be the only chinese company who has some many sales agent around the world.

 

    and you can easy to find a local dealer to handle the warranty service.

Have you tried manually updating the database in the system settings?

 

I had a 16 GB microSD almost full capacity and it managed to read it really fast, no problems actually.

Very easy fix for this would be to buy yourself a 3.5mm stereo phono plug and a  3.5mm stereo phono socket, and a few inches of cable, and solder these into an adapter that simply has the polarities swapped.

 

Then, every time you want to use the pair  of earphones in question, you just use the inline adapter you made.

 

 

But if it was me, I wouldn't be concerned that the channels are swapped during my listening sessions, so I wouldn't bother to make an adapter. But that's just me!

You could also buy a plug and replug the earphones themselves if you use them swapped all the time.

please try to upgrade to frimware 1.2 first, and please tell me what format( fat32, NTFS) the card is , or maybe you can change a new TF card, this is not a normal situation.
