The wonderful thing about opinions is that we can each hold one.
Fiio clearly intends to support use of the X3 as a DAC with the new firmware releases. I was hoping to make my E07 less necessary and use it the X3 as a DAC for the iphone. There is quite a bit of discussion about DAC units that work with the iphone and ipad. The E07 when set to not charge via USB is one such DAC.
My hope is that a similar setting can be added to the X3.
My interpretation of your comments is that you view my thoughts as being somewhat out of line here. Given Fiio's support for just such a function with other DAC units from Fiio, an observation that the function is currently not available is not, in my view, an out of line observation.
