That's strange, mine really plays all doing this....

yeah, you have to update lib or in settings select auto-update and everytime you unplug the player from computer it will update tracks from internal storage and memory card.

here is the senario

 

lets say I listen to a flac file song in two ways

 

Scenario -1: Fiio x3 not connected to anything else - only plugged into it a headphone ( outcome of quality is good )

 

Scenario 2: Fiio x3 connected as a dac using the otg cable to my xperia z ultra and using audio recorder pro app to listen to music, and plugged in the same headphone ( Outcome is quality is phenomenal great )

 

Why there is better quality in scenario 2, this is so confusing to me

Hi! My question about feature "Memory play > position"

Looks like dap can save only one - first position after dap first time turned off.

After second and more poweroff (no matter how much you next listened to this track) dap will play each time from the first time of save.

This is terrible because in my library 90% of musiс includes mixes, podcast and radioshow with time more than 1 hour.

Simple test: take track more than 1 hour.

Listen to the 20 minute and then turn off dap.

Turn on - music starts playing from 20 minute, ok. Next listen to 40 minute, turn off dap.

Turn on again - screen show that music plays from 40 minute, but in fact music plays from 20 minute.
Now no matter how much you more listen to this track, with each new turn on dap start playing from 20 minute.
Looks like mistiming that really plays with the fact that shows on the screen.

Bug in 2.05 & 1.31 fimware with many mp3`s.

Are you carefully matching levels?

Louder sounds better as has been demonstrated often

It's been discussed, i noticed same situation, for me, x3 sounds better as usb dac than standalone dap.

How's the battery life with the latest FW? Originally they stated around 10hrs but are there any improvements now? Couldn't really see much talk about it, or maybe my searching sucks!

Just got mine, upgrade firmware, does this unit benefit from break in?   I only ask while sounds good, upper mids (with 24bit files) seem harsh to me  my cowon with 16bit seems more balanced.

Erm, don´t know exactly. But when I´m playing FLAC 24/96, also powering my HD-448 with the X3, the battery is still half full after 6-7 hours. The last two days I´ve experimented a bit with the digital output... boy, when the X3 doesn´t use its internal amp it runs forever. I don´t know how many albums I´ve played this evening but the battery still reports as being full.

Are they playing the same source? Ie. did you take the 24 bit file and convert it to 16bit for the cowon yourself? If you download two versions of the same song online they may be mastered differently. Same goes for CD and SACD layers of a SACD.

I have not been following the X3 threads very closely lately so am not sure if anyone has been having trouble with 2.05 but my X3 started acting strangely after updating to it.  I would get frequent freezes that required a reset and somewhere between the upgrade and plugging the player into a W8.1 PC zapped the content on the internal memory. 

 

I don't really care about the Chesky stuff but I rolled back to 1.31 in the meantime and everything seems to be working OK.

How many of you guys are interested in the X5? :wink_face:

Have you got a sample already?

I'm definitely seriously considering it.
