Class 6 should be fast enough for flac (not sure bout hi-res), but amazon.jp also has class 10 listed as well.

If you click the specification tab on the microdia link they do have 128gb listed so it might be legit. Unfortunately by the time I get it to Canada shipping and taxes would drive the price high enough that I wouldn't want to risk it.


The card you linked to seems to be a class 10, the text wrongly states class 6.

Trust the text, not the picture. Ask if unsure.

Which link? amazon or microdia? Anyways if you scroll down the Amazon page they have the link for a class 10 (15060 yen vs. the 6440 of the one I linked. Makes sense to me the class 6 would be cheaper)

 

Question...would the class 6 be fast enough for high-res? I remember reading over on the Tarkan mod site that class 4 theoretically should be enough for lossless at 16/44.1.

Hello

 

What I did with my cds was ripped them with Helium Music program in my Dell PC in FLAC audio files.  I bough 2 32 GB Micro card on sale.  I have 3.  The one that came with my X3.  One for jazz.  One for Academic music and the other one for "Misc".  Im very happy.  I also connected it to my NAD 3020 vintage Amp and sounds really good.  I also have a Home theater and it sounds great as well.  No complains here about this little gem of portable sound.

Holy Crap!!!!

 

I got it all to work. Songs, albums, artists are right where they should be in "Category"

 

I messed a bit with the tracks at mp3tag and I deleted the database file and updated library. I've done these things in the past but songs never showed up in "Category". I'm not sure what fixed it tonight, but its all there as it should be. I'm a happy head-fi'er.

 

Thanks to Joe Bloggs and others here who helped.

I looked at Samsung and Sandisk, they offer no 128GB microSDXC cards. These are probably fake.

Guys, when I use as DAC for my laptop, I should use the headphone output right? What happen if I use amp out? The music just past through the DAC and not amped? And what is the use of coaxial out?

post #7823 of 11752

i have this charger came with iphone

specs are

input:100-200V ac 50-60hz

output:dc5.0V  1000mA+-5%

 

will there be any problem using this to charge x3..??

post #7824 of 11752

Hmmm... I've run into a few MP3's that will play normally on my Clip, my phone, even my laptop with no issue but the X3 says "Unsupported".  I've checked the files using MP3 Scan + Repair and had the files rebuilt to fix any issues and same problem.  Is there any other way to 'fix' the MP3s so that they work well?

Using the headphone out with a pair of headphones allows treble and bass control along with volume control.  If you are pumping the sound out to another amplifier, use the line out.  If you are sending the sound to another DAC that has coaxial input you use that connection.

No problem.  It should be faster than using a USB 2.0 and about the same speed as using USB 3.0 to recharge the X3.

So from line out, it's directly from the DAC right?

Try Foobar2000 file integrity verifier plugin - that could show you, what is wrong.

Another nice tool is MP3 Diags http://mp3diags.sourceforge.net/

The fix depends of what type of error are detected in the files.

I was thinking that myself, especially at the price they are listed. I've heard no shortage of people complain about getting fake cards from amazon 3rd party sellers, but this is a company I haven't heard of before and they do list 128gb on their site.

Now that CES is over hopefully we'll get some proper news about 128gb microsd.....

Cheers

Sandisk have a 128GB microSDXC card developed (spoke to a Sandisk representative a while ago), unfortunately there is no confirmed ETA for that card.

The Microdia cards (when original) seem to be rebranded Samsung cards, no clue whether the 128GB cards on Amazon are legit, the price suggests they might be fake.
