If you have Windows 8 on all those devices then these drivers won't work as Windows 8 enforces driver signing.

Yes, it works, only you have to configure Windows 8 to let install unsigned drivers.

"Yes, it works, only you have to configure Windows 8 to let install unsigned drivers." +1

 

The information is in the documentation on Fiio Website. I have windows 8 with driver signing and I managed to install as per the instructions.

Hi there!

I'm new to head-fi. Had read this thread as much as it possible) But can't find direct answer to my question. I have X3 with latest firmware (2.1). But have problems with some ape-cue files (for example this file http://yadi.sk/d/qskkLQUtJeYeU). Wave file in cue sheet has the correct name *.ape file. But player says "/filename/ File not supported". What's wrong, maybe you can help me? Thanks in advance.

Thanks, iUSB seem to be too expensive for using with X3. I am very stupid in new technology, will check for cheapest option

 

This is the USB power isolator from hifimediy: http://hifimediy.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=60&product_id=122

Hi guys, from what I've been reading, the X3 sometimes doesn't play nice with MP3 files.  Wanted to ask opinions on what is the best format to rip CD's from to put on the X3?

 

Maybe just copy them over in WAV files to insure the best bit-bit copies?

 

Also, if anyone has recommendation for how they burn CD's from a Mac for the X3, I'd definitely appreciate the information.  Is iTunes with "Apple Lossless" OK?

 

Thanks

Dear Coop,

 

I'm very appreciate for your kindness.

 

I just use the simplest solution first, since I will be mad if I cannot hear a clean sound from my rig within today. So I use this adapter and noise completely gone when I connect notebook to either WA7 or X3. I will order USB isolator from your link tonight. Thanks again Coop :beerchug:

I don't know about that isolator as there are limitations to it...

It works with dac's that support up to 96Khz/24bit, it does not work with 192/24 sample rates. 
Also, some dac's requires more than 200mA power. This might be if they have a headphone amplifier, or a MCU that draws more powe

You will not have any 24/192 support and it will take a month to charge the X3 with that unit.

Just sayin...

I use FLAC all the time and have quite a few ALAC from iTunes as well. They all work great, even high bitrate AAC's. :)

 

Rip your CD's down to ALAC and enjoy!

I'm interested in this.  Just to confirm, X3 does not have an FM radio feature right?

Nope.

It will crash X5 (and highly likely X3 as well) and requires a restart to get back to normal when you have an USB isolator in between the player and the PC (*Yes, I have tried it). Both X3 and X5 will need high speed (480Mbps) USB 2.0 to work, but most USB isolator only works up to full speed (12Mbps). USB Isolator that actually supports high speed will cost about 10~20 units of X3, last I checked. The only thing that is workable is actually the iFi iUSB Power that has been mentioned, but it is still more expensive than X3 itself.

That's too bad, would be a nice thing to have.  I'm not sure whether to wait for the X5 (month and a half) and spend more (about $200) or get this right now.

Much thanks, TrollDragon.

Thanks for clearing that up ClieOS, I didn't figure it was a good unit to use with the X3.
