post #5791 of 9304

Just some of the growing pains to go through with a new product I guess.  I still think it's a great player though!

post #5792 of 9304

Well, in regards to my X3 becoming unresponsive to input it looks like the Sleep  and Idle Poweroff options didn't make a difference.  For the third time today, after letting it loop continuously through and album, the controls became unresponsive thought the music kept playing.  Also, where I thought low battery might have had something to do with it, this time I had 1/2 power left (at least according to the battery meter).  I don't believe that it's FW related, as I've been on 1.3.1 since it came out and didn't experience the problem until recently.  It doesn't seem to be related to any particular albums or tracks either as it's happened playing several different albums.  I'll have to play with it some more to see if I can pin down the circumstances under which this occurs.

1, The output voltage is 2.9V , the test result is mistake because the reviewer has not set the gain to high in X3.


Measurement amplifier FiiO X3 update. Before really was a mistake with the choice of the gain. I apologize for the inaccuracy.

2, The distortion of X3's line out , you may notice it is very great when it is tested in -3dBFS but it is not so great in 0dBFS. to make it clear,

 

    0dBFS is something like you test your car in full power ( or at the highest speed 200KM/h), -3dBFS means you are driing your car at 150KM/h. the music is change all the time but not an constantly signal ( sine wave signal ). so you the distortion only

 

   will become a little bigger when the music is in the biggest sound level.


0 dBFS is independent of the level, as level is adjusted after the DAC X3 and not before.Most modern recordings are normalized to 0 dBFS at klippnig DAC X3 makes more explicit normalization as a defect of sound.

I'm a new X3 user. Upgraded to 1.31 without a hitch.

 

I just wanted to congratulate James and co at FiiO for a peerless product and evidently active support. I look forward to your future f/w releases.

I forgot: the FiiO reports those 24/96 WMA Prof files as 24/96 - but plays them back as 16/96.

Shoot. I wanted to thank you for your suggestion because with mine it now seems to work. But I haven´t heard yet enough since yesterday to make a sound statement about this.

I can confirm that it doesn´t seem to be related to any particular album, it happens on random tracks. What is the file format you´re using?

I read that the new firmware needs to be delayed for further tweaking... But still very curious about the dsd part of the new firmware... Did it work?
Thanks...

Switching 'Idle Poweroff' to OFF was indeed unsuccessful as mine crashed again. This is getting tiresome.

I've been using FLAC exclusively.

It is a little tiresome. I did a reset this morning to see if it makes a difference.  The X3 is playing while I work.  I'm hoping that maybe that did the trick.

Ok, then it doesn´t seem to be format-related.

I did that. Didn´t change anything - for me at least.

 

I´ve started to think that my unit is broken. I´m not sure so I´m waiting for the new firmware to be released.

 

I can live very well with the odd Cue-sheet behaviour, the low track skipping speed, that tags aren´t shown and can only be accessed via 'Information'...

 

but I can´t live with HiRes formats not properly decoded and curious crashes. IMO this needs to be adressed first... and not that the X3 can be used as a soundcard or can play DSD.

 

EDIT: second crash within just one hour. It was only playing music, nothing more. And when I wanted to change to another album... nothing. Crashed again.

it is quite easy to be fixed by firmware upgrade. all we need to do is decrease the output level before DAC, but again, it make not sense at 99.9% time cause the music is change all the time. not the sine way.

 

anyway, hope the reveiwer can learn more about the products before they made the conclusion.
