I would never consider it a dedicated hifi audio product.

I thought the 4th gen Touch was a very nice sounding player. I traded mine away because the screen was too small after getting another device with a 5" screen.....but there are days when I wish I still had it.

Let me guess, you traded it for a Samsung Android player with a Wolfson DAC? :P

This is really an orange to banana question as xba1 and xba3 has quite different sound signature, even with the same source I won't say xba3 will be better for everyone than xba1. but with the same IEM, most if not all would sound better out of the X3.

This seems an obvious question to me, but I'm wondering why no-one's asked it before. Why is the internal memory so small, given the amount of space hires tracks take up? I'm buying one, and am going to put a nice big memory card in it, but still.

My J3 running FLAC is probably only good for about 20 hours max, using it 4 - 5 hours a day. I need to charge every 4th - 5 thday, however, I never let it run flat charging at 20%.


Fully drain. I use a variety of formats because I've started listening to podcasts (Joe Rogan Experience podcast is the bomb). Since I have no desire to re-listen to podcasts, I delete them and drag in some new music or whatever floats my boat, thus charging it a bit. When something is loading, I view different websites and don't always eject the J3 immediately after something finishes loading. Basically, I don't really think about the battery at all, which is exactly why I think it is such a good feature.

still beats the 901 who doesn't have internal memory for tracks at all.....!

Does putting HD music on a portable media player make sense? I mean it's not like most people can actually hear a difference between HD and 16/44 on a full-sized desktop rig, right?

It does if ALL your music files are high res. Having to re-sample to lesser bitrates is unnessasary if the DAP can handle 'em.

 

Example: Rockbox FW in a player can play ANY res file & type ever made period.

Actually it's easier to distinguish with a DAP+IEM than my full speaker rig for me...

I don't even think lossless on a portable makes sense....lol. High bitrate LAME or AAC lossy files sound transparent these days for most people, since the encoders have improved so much over the years.
