If someone else does it before me then
Please stick with mediafire and mega guys. And uploading from a real account.
All others suck
nice,, is yours the december or april batch? =)
one reason why the AK10 looks tempting, but the fact that it cost $300 is ridiculous... but if the X3 can really be used as USB DAC with phones/pads, wow awesome bargain...
Any chance of keeping the same audio as the FW1.31 (not in DAC mode) but add the function to the same FW DAC.
Note very high tones charged with FW2.05, hurt my teeth.
Sorry for my bad English.
Alguna posibilidad de mantener el mismo audio que el FW1.31 (no en modalidad DAC) pero agregar la funcion DAC a ese mismo FW.
Note muy cargado a los tonos altos con el FW2.05, me dolieron las muelas.
Disculpen por mi mal ingles.
It's certainly a funny thing. I too could swear I heard an improvement in sound quality after installing the new firmware and re- listening to a file that i had just listened to the day before. All of this was prior to reading the initial post claiming an improvement in the sound quality after installing the new firmware. The placebo effect would hinge entirely on both expectation bias and the power of suggestion. How could either of those be a factor however when i had no cognoscente expectation bias due entirely on not experiencing any sound quality improvements after the installation of the previous firmwares, and also not having read the relevant post before hand so there would be could not be any power of suggestion. I am not about to go through the aggravation of returning to the previous firmware to do another comparison just to try, most likely fruitlessly, to confirm this one way or the other. i really don't see the point. Also i can also swear that I can detect subtle sound differences between a file played back through browse files and the same file played back through Categories/Album.
On a completely unrelated topic I read in a previous post, in this thread, about a way to get gapless playback from the Browse Files header previous to the availability of the new 2.05 firmware simply by turning off the X3 and turning it back on while having the player set to resume from the start of the last track listened to. I never experienced that, but I did experience something very similar and I would presume connected. I have found that if you start playback from the Categories/Album header when having the player settings set to resume from the beginning of the last track when you turned off the player, and then turned it back on again, it would no longer play that particular file in gapless. So basically the exact opposite of what the other poster experienced. Spooky! Actually it appears that for some reason turning the player off then on again seems to reverse the gapless setting.
All sort of a moot point now however, with the release of firmware 2.05
Sorry for the delay.
The only vendor listed on Fiio website here in Brazil still didn't have the device at the time I was about to buy and I couldn't wait whether or when it would arrive. And yet it wouldn't be locally: they would have to ship it to me, because the store is in São Paulo, I live in Aracaju... and maybe it would be more expensive. Whether by customs tax or local vendor profit margins, my wallet would gonna hurt anyway.
