But will FiiO consider releasing an amp better than E12? The amp section of E18 is actually a slight improvement over the E12 IMO.

Will we get the option to change the colour? I would love a black one instead of red.

Yeah, it looks great except for the colour :X

 

And one more thing, is this new UI backward-compatible with those custom skins for the X3 I have been hearing about?

very very very nice :) ...... as said before i hope to see more colors for that theme ...... mmmmmm i see 5 band eq too which is great when needed ..... and the volume level up there is 70 which is strange because  X3 have 60 volume level ....will increase the no of volume levels for finer adjusting to the volume level or so ???

does the eq will be applicable to the line out ?

Looks good James, but I think it will be even better in black.

What colour options will be available for us?

+1 on the colour. Black/Dark Grey with white text please.

Also noticed the EQ. Will the X3 still have the hardware Bass and Treble control? It's hard to tell from the images. I find it a lot quicker to use (and it sounds great), compared to the EQ in the X5. If the X5 had more custom presets it would be much better to use, but right now I prefer the quick and easy X3 Bass/Treble.

Red is Fiio's signature colour.I like red and white mix better.

Looks more like mandarin orange color to me. Yes, it'd be great to have a few color schemes to choose from

Yes, looks great, but when?  When will this firmware update be available?

post #9177 of 14913

The new design looks very promising.

 

Is there any improvement in the quality of ogg vorbis files to be expected in the next firmware?

This is the X3 problem that bothers me the most.

same here

Nearly all of my music is stored in flac files and I could easily convert some of them with oggenc to save space on the device and keep all tags, if the X3 could play them. The files I tested sounded great with X3 as DAC but horrible on the device. It didn't even matter that the X3 was unable to display the tags. Right now, I wouldn't advertise the X3 as DAP with Ogg support.

That is not the solution Francisk... although depending on the importance of updates, I might stay on 2.1. It's is just unacceptable to create uglier UI which is actually designed for devices with scroll and looking like fake ipod from 2003!

I take it you've already used the new user interface, or are you making bold statements without having tried it yet?
