Just a quick question:

That will be awesome.

It seems that it can't.

I've tried to find a software to transform SACD DSD ISO files into other 24bits formart that X3 can support, but I couldn't find any.

Tell me where you are and I will bring you some bread.

But maybe you won't eat bread.wink.gif

In the X3 forum we can ask anything about X3.

Extract the ISO with sacd_extract and convert to what you want with foobar2000 - you need the DSDIFF Decoder plugin.

Or you can try the Super Audio CD Decoder plugin (foobar2000), it should be capable decoding the ISO directly.

Barton, it was a joke. ©

But the rationale behind the joke was, for all the talk that X3 is not an audiophile player, it's a player for people who care about sound quality. Not everything that is true about iPods or what have you should necessarily apply to X3.

Was that "Pardon"? rolleyes.gif

And yes, we all know it's not touted as an audiophile player. But FiiO is also a modest company,...time will tell.wink.gif

Hey James, will the June batch include Singapore? Plenty of us over here are excited over the X3.

No, it wasn't wink.gif

 

I think X3 is “not and audiophile player” in that it's a) moderately priced and b) reasonably convenient. Unlike some other DAPs that sacrifice everything for SQ rolleyes.gif

No 1: your link is dead.

No 2: I don't know you, and I don't know what your inferring by "Barton". I'm not liking the irritating sarcasm. My name isn't Barton,...or should I just call you "Boris" or "Borscht" from now on?

No 3: moderately priced & reasonably convenient mean it won't be audiophile? Your the type that equates exorbitant amounts of $$$ with better sq. Quite foolish in the long run. I guess if it were an $800+ device, sized like a brick, and you'd expect audiophile performance. Funny,...

I agree with this. FiiO has a great track record for making quality products that both deliver great sound while maintaining affordable prices. There are plenty of headphones, amps, dacs etc. that perform way above their price, and this product seems to be one of those. Obviously, no one knows yet, but given the information that is available one can only assume it will be a great sounding DAP. It is perfectly possible to have to get great SQ from low priced or moderately price gear.

Let me explained why I said it is not for "audiophile" because I think our products is designed for anyone who love music. as you can saw we never claimed our products is belong to hifi or hiend.

 

but it is not means it is not suitable for audiophile.

I doubt any of us will be disappointed. And the fact it's NOT $800 doesn't mean the sq will be worse than any other "QUALITY" player. I think this will be a WINNER!!! cool.gif
