TransFlash, a.k.a. microSD. You should at least try to google it... just saying.

X3 doesn't display picture in the folder. You need to embed it into the ID3 tag. That's probably the reason why only mp3 files display album art correctly.

is it possible that with current firmware it isn't supported yet, or, that it's only possible if you "mount" the album art in the metadata?

Thanks for your answers!

I will try the ID3 tag.

Not being able to display the album art is actually not a big deal for me.

I found that the electrical noises come out quite randomly when I play 24/174.6 Flac, I mean even for the same file.

After some retesting, I can confirm that X3 does play 24/96 and 24/192 WAV just fine. The wav files I used to test X3 previous are generated by a software that somehow doesn't play well with X3. Using another software, I was able to convert the some new wav files and all of them plays on X3 without a problem. Sorry for the hiccup.

Very excited for this. I have my desktop rig sorted, so next on the list is a portable stack. It sounds like it's on track to sound as good as the E17, which I very much enjoy the sound of, and the digital output will hopefully make this a great source to feed other DACs [=

Am I right in thinking the X3 only supports optical digital out. If so, what options does that leave in terms of compatible portable DACs?

Off the bat, Ibasso's D10 and D12, plus the DB-1and DB-2 (and the matched PB's). E17 has optical input but I'm not aware of any inline, passive coax to optical converter, however the X3 is basically the E17 with a player (screen, card reader, etc) instead of a USB input for its DAC, I don't see the point.

Coax-out, not optical.

From the website it seems to be build in, and non removable..

Can it sort songs by the album artist tag? If not, could FiiO perhaps consider adding that feature?

The artist sort becomes such a mess with all the "blahblahfeat.blah" stuff.

Next to the first image on the site it says:

"Lossless playback for APE/FLAC/ALAC/WMA/WAV    192k/24B"

And on the specs page it also says:

"WAV: 192k/24B"
i took that information from fiio.net yesterday.

You were probably looking at their WMA spec.
