# The Fiio X3 Thread. - Page 400

Just posting back as promised, I now have the X3 running perfectly well as a USB DAC running via VLC. The issue seems to have been some conflict between software DAP's I had on my Mac as I removed them all, and just put the latest version of VLC back on and all is working well. I imagine that the update to OS X Mavericks may have compounded some of the issues with software incompatibilities.

Anyway, all is well now and thank you again to those of you that offered helpful advice.

if you're plugging in headphones, plug them into the hole marked with headphones.

If you're plugging in an AMPLIFIER, plug it into line out connector in the bottom.

If you're trying to plug in a pair of passive speakers with bare wire, you are wrong. More than likely you have a headphone jack looking thing and a pair of speakers with a power button on them. I hope.
Thanks a lot ...just another question ...when i plug my x3 into my laptop ( crappy sound card ) and I used a my Altec Lansing speaker connected to my laptop...so should I plug the speaker jack to the headphone or the bottom line out ?

Once again thanks a lot.
laptop -> usb cable -> fiio x3's USB port -> Fiio X3 line out port (headphone jack cable) -> Altec Lansing speakers

shoot email to support@fiio.net

Thanks James. Much appreciated.

Like myself.... It appears there is a big need as to what cables are needed and what plugs into what.

Hey everyone... I've updated my X3 to the latest firmware(2.05) but I'm having problems using it as a USB Dac.

I have installed the usb software and have the X3 in the DAC mode. Every time I connect the X3 to the computer the DAC screen on the X3 shows for a few seconds then goes away and it doesn't work as a Dac. There is a clicking sound when I plug the usb cable into the X3, the same clicking sound can be heard when I remove the cable(This clicking sound comes from the X3 unit itself).

Has anyone experienced this?

I just tried the initial green version, and it looks really great ! I will keept it from now.

And as some others, I also immediately thought: “Hmm, would be even better in blue...”

May seem a small thing, but I really like the idea of the pause symbol in red and the play symbol in green. It is much more visible. So even in the future blue version, I would probably prefer if you keep this pause=red/play=green association.

I've tried using it on every usb port on my Asus G750jx. Same issue each time.

the fiio dac panel runs in the background. is the actual application not running anymore? or is your computer automatically switching to a different audio output device and getting conflicted or something?

The application is not running. I uninstalled the driver and tried installing the TUSBAudio Driver again but it fails. :(

Btw I have windows 8.1

This is the error that I get from the installer:
