Congrats, she's a great little beastie! Get some dual lock to attach it onto the X3. smily_headphones1.gif
They both fit perfectly into a Pelican 1020 Micro case with a little on the side to stow the interconnect.

I'm sure it'll be great. Thanks for the tip on the Pelican case, I'll search for it on eBay.

I mean by altering the sound that the x3 have warm signature from headphone out and the c5 will be more neutral

Hi, nmatheis! When you use the E12 DIY with your X3, do you listen at low gain high volume, or high gain lower volume (on the E12 DIY)? Which opamp and buffer do you use most often when listening with the HE-400? Thanks.

Hi. I usually leave it on low gain and set the volume to around 1/3 maximum. I listen to a lot of experimental electronic, minimalist classical, and metal. So far, my favorite opamp has been the AD797, but I haven't tried the MUSES01 and MUSES02 I ordered for it yet. I'm betting one of those will be a favorite. I'm cycling through opamps at this point and haven't bothered with changing the buffer yet.

Hi, I was just wondering if I can plug a 2TB portable HDD into this player and expect to be able to play the music, and also if that did not work perhaps I could get a WIFI chassis for the HDD and then access the songs via Wifi with this player, or would I need the X5 for this ?  Thanks

At this point that won't be possible.

I heard that at least for the X5 FiiO is working on OTG playback, maybe for the X3 as well.

What you could try, but is impossible to get your hands on, is a "mobidapter"(small device that converts female USB to male microSD)

Accessing songs via wifi is going to be very difficult, because the X3 would have to see the files, and i'm not sure if your network can provide filenames this quick, let alone somehow stream it to the X3/X5

TL;DR: not possible, in future FW release for X5 OTG possible.

I'm not sure what are you referring when you say plug in a HDD.  Like jerry-rig a MicroSD card?  If you are saying directly plugging in with a USB cable, I would say no.  I think one of the #1 problem you will have first is, how would you power your HDD on the go?  Also, the X3 (and I'm assuming the X5 as well) read media straight from the MicroSD card or act as a DAC to a computer only.  Connecting a HDD will serve no purpose that I can see.  I know there is SD cards that is WiFi accessible but not MicroSD cards as far as I know and also I think that protocol is a 1 way transfer away from the SD card.  Honestly, the X3 and the X5 is meant to be a portable device and a DAC for a computer in a pinch.  I wouldn't hold my breath on having a support for this purpose in the near future for these device.

Thanks for you helps, I had a look and found out that the X3 does not support OTG which if it did would enable one to use an external Hard Drive with the X3 and have it read all the songs on it.  As for WIFI yes, I would like a player that can read the songs say from my PC in the player and have it play them over the wireless network.
From what I see the X5 has this OTG support atleast in part
