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.

 

 

 

Good to know. I'll keep an eye out on the US/Canadian amazon sites, and see if they pop up there. At least if they're fake it'll be easier to return.

There are 128gb SDXC cards already but not Micro SDXC.

Ok another note, my FiiO X3 is arriving tomorrow. Getting really excited! biggrin.gif

Wow, my X3 is in a foul mood today. After months of trouble free use, now it doesn't want to do anything right. It will only play 1 song at a time - have to press the "next" button to listen to a whole album. The database update isn't finding all the music or just freezing completely (yes I did try deleting the db). And I've even had it freeze just trying to shut it off. Rolled back to earlier firmware versions, but no joy. I'm almost thinking about permanently mounting a paperclip to the reset hole. I hope the Fiio engineers are working double time to get the new firmware out this month.

Cheers

Is there an ETA for firmware this month?

Fiio never did set a date, they just said that if they can't get it out by the end of this month we probably won't get one till after Chinese New Year - March....

Here's hoping :o

March:eek:. If they're going to hold out that long, at least they should release a beta fw.

I think the problem was just 1 or more corrupted/wrong files. It always would freeze trying to do a library update. I switched to my other Sd card and boom, update successful. Either that or my X3 was getting jealous cause I've been using my ipod:D.

 

Question for Fiio: How come when I format using the X3 I need to scan & fix the card before I can use it on my Win 7 laptop? 

 

Sing while you may.....

It is because you did not use Windows's 'safely remove hardware' option. Since you didn't use that option, Windows then wants to do a scan and fix.

 

FAT32 drives, and the type of device that the FiiO X3 is makes 'safely remove hardware' pretty much un-needed. It's a relic(but useful) of the old days.

Actually my X3 wasn't even connected to my PC when I did the format. After I formatted the card I ejected it and stuck it into the card reader on my laptop and that's when I got the message. When I use the reader I always (almost) do a proper eject, and hardly ever do any file transfers over USB - just too damn slow. The only time I even plug my X3 in is if I'm using the DAC.

I believe it also has to deal with 'changes' in a storage carrying device or if its new and not factory new.

This was only my first attempt as my usual preamp is in use by a friend right now, so I will reserve my opinion until I have tried the X3 with it.

I forgot how much output the X3 lineout has and it caught me off guard compared to my Clip Zip:basshead:.

So glad to hear someone else point out the midbass hump that is so prevalent through the line out.  I noticed it's nowhere near as pronounced through the headphoneout.  Unfortunately, the line out was the main reason I bought the X3 in the first place. 

 

Has FiiO ever given an explanation for the cause of it?

Do they have oversized album art embedded into them by any chance?

There is some incompatibility between the X3 formatting and windows. Hoping to get it fixed in the coming update redface.gif

The 3M Dual Lock is a little high as we can't get the low profile stuff here in Canada...

Now if someone wanted to send me a chunk of the stuff, it would make this much nicer! :D  

I wonder how they compare to the 8.35d. the german took a bass boost from fiio really well and has some of the best bass around. How much does the fiio e12 help any way. the x3 is pretty loud as it is and the amp sounds decent to me.

From Hi-Fi World - January  2014 issue

"The Line output is unaffected by the volume control, having a fixed output of 1.7V and similar performance to the headphone output. This is suitable for driving a hi-fi amplifier."

 

FiiO X3 PORTABLE, HIGH RESOLUTION, DIGITAL AUDIO PLAYER

 

All measurements were made with our Rohde&Schwarz UPV

Damned if I can explain it.:confused_face:
