Perhaps James at Fiio could look into this? I'm sure we are not the only ones managing their files in ALAC with itunes...

Same here with ALAC Music-Library and missing gapless-support. A solution for this issue would be great. Nonetheless the X3 revolutionized my daily way to work / University.

We are working in the new firmware and hope the gapless work better in the future not matter it is in album or other playback mode.

I have a Rockboxed Clip+ and I love the way it sounds.  It is able to scan a 32 GB card in less than a minute, it provides the ability to browse by Artist/Album (my preferred method), and it is very reliable.   I have all my music organized as Music\Artist\Album on my music server and Clip+ SD card.  I figured that since I have all my music saved as 16/44.1 FLAC files, maybe I should get the Fiio E07K.  I just bought one and tried it as an amp for my Clip+ (when connecting to the auxiliary jack in my car).  I know double amping is not the preferred method, but it sounds very good in my car.  I did have to change the treble +2 and bass -2 to get a neutral sound to my ears.  I also like the sound of the E07K as a DAC for my laptop.  

 

I see that the X3 will have the DAC feature in a future FW upgrade.  It is also a DAP with a good amp all inside a single device.  Having a single device is convenient, but I worry about the complaints regarding scan times, having to re-tag files, having to change file names (or folder structures), issues with gapless playback, having folder browse instead of Artist/Album view, etc.  If I have to work too hard to get a device to work, especially after being spoiled by the ease of use and reliability of my Clip+, I am hesitant to risk getting frustrated

 

The X3 seems way further ahead compared to the issues I read about on the DX50 thread.  I also think James is a good guy who stands behind his products.  I am wondering if I should get the X3 and return my E07K.   Has anyone else got a Clip+ amped with a E07K that can compare it to an X3 and offer feedback?  Thanks is advance for any insight.

Hi James, is there an ETA of the new firmware with DAC capability?
I'm really excited about it smily_headphones1.gif

James said elsewhere that in 2 weeks the new FW should be out.

The sound Of a Rockboxed sansa is ridiculous versus x3
I use sansa players since 5 Years... The x3 is much better with top line iems.biggrin.gif

So I just got my X3 in the mail, can anyone tell me what the two thin plastic strips are for?

Replacement screen protectors once you scratch the one that's pre-installed.

Ok thanks.

 

Having slightly worrying issue though, I tested my sennheiser HD595s with it first, and it worked fine. 

 

Now I'm trying it with my Yuin pk3s and it just makes this weird ticking sound and I can't hear anything coming through the earbuds. What gives?

 

edit: Nevermind, I didn't have them plugged in all the way :P. I guess the clicking in something indicating this? Went away once I plugged them in completely.

Hey everyone! I had an issue where the FiiO X3 was giving a slight hiss on my IEMs but I noticed it only happens if I played with the Treble/Bass settings. If I set Treble/Bass to 0, there is no hissing. Is this normal?

post #5518 of 12358

I don't have it and I have my treble increased and bass decreased all the time.

Just purchased one, awaiting delivery today, and hoping for the best with all my FLAC files.

All FLAC here and it works like a charm.
