Know it's been used already but feel it can't be overstated.

Can't wait to get ahold of this bad boy I want to be able to walk around with my 24/96 vinyl flacs without them being downgraded.

Oops double post.

Well, it's on the company's site now. (I don't remember it being there a couple of days ago.)

Yup. Saw that yesterday and thought that x3 was officially released.

I have written ad copy freelance over the years - I wonder if I could direct some work my way by offering my services to the various Chinese electronics firms that are trying to make a dent in the US/EU marketplace.

 

The three paragraphs under the heading: "Looking For The Lost Sound" are some of the worst ad copy I have read. It makes no sense and does nothing to entice buyers to spend their hard earned dollars/euros...

 

It won't make a lot of difference to the folks here at Head-Fi, because we are already sold - for the most part. But the general public?

 

Hoo Boy!

 

Going to have to brush off the resume.

I glanced through X3's English page at Fiio's web page. Some translations do not seem accurate. For example, X3's bass EQ and treble EQ are both hardware-based, correct? Fiio's official page reads "firmware bass" and "firmware treble". Not a big deal for me (I will buy an X3 however they call it), but it is better to be accurate in the official page.

The other obvious improvement is to use left alignment for paragraph text. Center aligned paragraph text is just a bad idea.

No offense, but I've noticed problems on pretty much every product page on FiiO's website for a long time now.

 

That said, there are a few errors this time around (as zzffnn pointed out) that seems to be more critical.

I'm going to buy an X3.  Having said that Fiio's mangling of the English language doesn't inspire confidence.  They would be wise to hire someone with a firm grasp of the language who can translate text clearly and accurately.

I can't wait for a x3 vs Colorfly ck4 impression

The translation of the X3 itself was done pretty well. Head-Fi'ers, myself included, proofread it.

Yeah. But a good translation doesn't not necessarily make good marketing text. For example, "It plays just about every lossless music. You might love its sound." Might? This is marketing. You don't suggest doubt. Might as well go with the cliche of "You will love its sound."

While some of the sentences are grammatically correct, as Ivabign pointed, out they are not very good.

And then there are still some errors:

"For now, digital audio formats which represented by MP3 have become the main stream."

With errors corrected,

"For now, digital audio formats, which are represented by MP3, have become mainstream."

Then a little tweaking just to improve the sentence stylistically:

"For now, digital audio formats such as MP3 have become mainstream."

I'm into this because of the digital coax out, you don't get that in other $200 DAP. Does the Tone control, balance control or volume control has any effect on the coax out? I'm not a purist or something but it's good to have just pure digital out. Thanks!

I'm curious about this as well..I actually would like if the tone controls, etc DID affect the digital out. That would be great.
