I neither have Galaxy S series nor iPhone, but I double any smartphone will have as tight a spec as X3. I have a BBK Vivo X1, a purpose built audiophile smartphone from China ( and being praised as one of the best sounding smartphone), and I don't think X3 is anything lesser in comparison.

Of course, if we're talking about firmware for everyone, advanced features shouldn't get in the way of the basic ones, but that doesn't mean features are bad.

True, that's why I said in previous post that as customizable as RockBox can be, it could do better if it take a modular approach.

James can you please tell me if you used the strong new jacks imputs on X3 and if there will be a recorder function built in the DAP anytime soon?

Thanks,Levi

As mentioned, FiiO is not allowed to release any code. The headphone jack on X3 is the new type, I believe.

Output impedance is well under 1 ohm, so CIEM is not an issue.

Thanks for the confirmation ClieOS, I wasn't sure about the actual number.

The only edge that a phone like the Galaxy S4 would have over the X3 is USB audio out for DACs like the HifiMeDIY Sabre, UD100, and the Fiio E7 (I've tried the E7, it works like a charm!) but after a DAC and amp, it will be as thick as the X3 and have worse battery life, but also has Last.FM Scrobbling, and internet radio.

So all in all...it's safe to assume that this is an awesome product that FiiO put out...especially for the money. That's great!

I think X3 is the pretty much best price/performance product in the market. FiiO deserves it!

so far the initial feedback of X3 is released and it seems X3 is very good DAPs, and good combo with X10, HD598, XBA30 and some other IEMs, also some used it to drive HD600, lol.

 

the mass production will be start on 25th. hope we can delivery some to U.S, Taiwang, Hong Kong on time.

Musicday is the Rockbox developer... He said they wouldn't work exclusively on it. wink.gif

Is time for you to sell your ipod, and buy the X3

We will be able to buy it on Fiio's website with delivery worldwide?

I looked yesterday on Fiio website but wasn't listed.

Cheers,Levi

not , it will be very difficult to us to provide world wide service when there are any warranty issues.

not sure whether it is suitable to say the object test data of ipod classic in here, but depend on the specification which done by AP, iPod is lost in everything . of course, iPod Classic is very great product , UI, ID, build quality, battery life, fast response .

I for one am ready to trade my ipod and amp stack for this. I need something more pocketable that won't make me have to live on cup noodles for weeks past purchase.
