I'm subscribed too. I've been looking for an alternative to the Clip Zip but I might not like the house FiiO warm sound.

Damn, and I just forked out for a cowon d20.  

 

Seems like a fairly large battery.  Surprised that it only lasts for approx. 10 hours or so.

Thanks for the review ClieOS. So I guess album art isn't supported on flac even if it is embedded. A very minor quibble I guess but would like to see it in a future firmware update.

Yes, each new feature may adds some bugs and spend time to test, so we now try to fix all the bugs and make the current firmware more stable, 

 

some new features will be added in the future.

 

1, AIFF support.

 

2, Album cover of FLAC, WAV, APE, ALAC and other format.

Perfectly understandable. Thanks James!

Likely needs an additional or larger buffer implemented. I guess it depends on how one feels about buffers that 'should' be inaudible.

I can compare it to any DAP if you are willing to send one my way :)

Clieos, do you have a headstage arrow or a pico slim? If so, could you put it under the x3 so that we could see how thick they would be together?

 

Edit: an E17 instead of the x3 would work too, since they're about the same thickness.

That's because of the high output power. Your D20 puts out 29mW per channel @16ohms,  whereas the X3 is pushing out  300mW @16ohms.  500mW @16ohms. (as noted by JamesFiiO below)
