This is the most common/likely problem but of course, it may be firmware or some setting in the X3 that is messing it up with working with Win 8 although the chance is unlikely.
You must not have gone to engineering, business or IT school.
All of your points are VERY accurate from a consumer standpoint. But from a business standpoint make no sense.
Currently running 1.31.
I assumed it was a problem with my Win8 too but not if only the x3 cant connect.
Its only a week old for the laptop and just got Win8.1 OTA, all my other external devices have no problem though.
Any particulars settings to set within the player itself but it should just be plug and play right.
hmmm, I actually am from a business background which is why i cant get my head around the x3 problems. Did the operations department got a batch of supppliers that wasnt up to standards? Did the marketing people hire the wrong unit testers? Did the software side ran into coding problems but sales decided to jump the gun and release it?
Anyway my point is, X3 AS A WHOLE PACKAGE isnt like the other fiio products eg E5 or E17 amps where consumers or I, rather, had the impression which i thought was brilliant.
Sound yes, software no. Im not expecting apple / googles cutting edge software tweaks but at least be decent. Did the engineers think the software was decent? Seriously?
How about you, which industry/ sector are you in and kindly bring me up to speed on how your industry feel about the x3?
Anyway, I spent about half year in Shanghai for work and nowhere during that period did the chinese gave the impression that it was really smart good business to actually release half baked software, albeit with fantastic hardware. If thats what you meant about your business standpoint, i do hope you clarify.
