Never heard Dr Chesky, but having freebies is always a good thing. smily_headphones1.gif

Yep, I'm still lovin' my D-777s, although I may sell one of them off soon, as I don't really need 2. I have to agree that the early 1990s Sony PCDPs sound amazing, all things considered.

I have a quick question,  I pre-ordered the X3 from mp4 nation about a week ago.   My question is regarding using the X3 with a Fiio E17 (which I already have).   Will there be any benefit to pairing the X3 with the E17?

 

Thanks

Mike

If you use the 'Search This Thread' function near the top of this page, you'll find this has been discussed a few times already.

Broadly-speaking, the X3 amp stage is considered (mostly) identical to the E17, and thus there is little to be gained by using the X3 with an E17.

i don't think so, except maybe save some battery on the X3.

i am only waiting for the usability tweaks to be implemented right now, and apart from that its looking like a great DAP.

One thing that would be awesome is if theres an option for treating audiobooks seperately, or defining an audiobook folder. Another suggestion I have would be to have an option to treat the internal 8gb storage as part of the external 64gb storage or treat it as one contiguous space. Obviously it doesnt have to be this way in hardware, it would be transparent to the user, but in software it could be implemented based on which directory they are in.

For audiobooks it can be a matter of bookmarking location for certain playlists or something, maybe if a certain file is present in the directory.

BTW Fiio, if you guys need a developer and have any United States positions open, I'm available.

Also, i've preordered, plan to pair with brainwavs R1 for lawn/gym/sleeping and with ATH-m50 for regular usage. MAYBE HD650 now and then but no real point if I'm at home and have an Aune T1 on my desk connected to my computer.

there will have a flyer inside the box so people can purchase high resolution music on HDtracks with special discount. 


Wow great news as I've read that this binaural album sounds especially great on headphones, not to mention a US20+ value! I've only listened to Chesky's "Concerto for Electric Guitar and Orchestra" and the SQ was amazing (and the entire orchestra is synthesized)!

 

So James this will be in the new batch coming soon? Thanks in advance!

yes, but it take time to manufacture the whole batch in short time. anyway, hope the test music can help you realize how good the sound will be from X3 in 192k/24b

Was looking at this in the spec page,

Headphone Impedance Range 16~300Ω

If I preorder the X3, is this freebie applied to me?
