Did you press 'update lib' yet? If you haven't yet, go to system settings and update library

ôk thanks, i will give that a try.

You can set Update Lib to auto or manual. 

 

But pressing it with the 'select' button will auto update your library

 

If you have not done this yet, this is probably the problem

I have given up on stacks. Way too much hassle. And if I were to do a stack the C5 is way too low powered for me. According to their spec sheet 32mW into 32 ohm. Compare to the X3 at 270mW.

I think the only amp I would consider is something like a pico slim or similar sized amp for the X3 but the internal amp seems good as it.

Yes. I can't understand all the posters who don't even have the X3 yet and are already deciding that they need an external amp.

I agree as well, this is meant to be a stand alone unit. It powers my 150 ohm IEMs with no problem. Try it first before you buy an external amp, you will be just wasting money.

Has anyone done a full set of measurements / graphs on the X3?

Well... being able to drive headphones to certain loudness is one thing, to drive it to sound good is another. I guess they knew the amp section of the x3 isn't that impressive.

Previous statement still stands: how can you know you don't like it, if you haven't even listened to it?
And from the reviews so far it seems it's a more than decent amp.

I have an X3 and I decided I need an external amp. :)  

 

The amp section of X3 is not that impressive in terms of sound. Also, having an external amp comes with other added benefits such as double the battery life!
