xduoo X3-B High-end- DAP

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 

Xduoo is a new company in audiophile market and judging by reviews they aren't bad for being a fresher.

Their current offerings are some portable DACs/amps (XD-01, XP-1 and UA-05)  that has already been released and has received quite good impressions.

 

According to their website they have a high-end DAP , X3-B under production (wonder whats with the tag X3 and Chinese DAPs, we do know fiio X3)

 

Now there i had to use google translator, figured its in Chinese from those cross-arc signs

 

Using patented technology: ZL 2010 2 0214978.5

Supports MP3, WMA, WAV, APE, FLAC, OGG, AAC and other audio files.

Capacitive touch screen,

Dual WM8740.

Headphone amplifier uses opa627 + buf634u.

CNC aluminum shell,

 
 

 

Little thick but looks cool, the potentiometer looks  little similar to hifimans flagship.
From the looks and specs saying cnc Al shell, i guess its sturdy.
 
 
Their is no speculation regarding run time and release date. 
 
I 'll update this post with further details.

Looks like a combined Ibasso DX100 and Hifiman 901.

I believe that there is a X3A too. Though I must say that the X3s on their website are there already for some time...

I am too very much interested in that player smily_headphones1.gif

This reminds me of iRiver SPINN.

the screen-less version was sold in China for a while ( suppose to have same circuit / SQ).

The review was so so. don't expect to compete with HM601/ FIIO X3.

Sub'd, looks interesting. As mentioned above it is like hybrid of DX100/HM901.

No word for the pricing yet, will update soon.

 

other than price and UI, i would worry about battery run time and sampling rate and hopefully it will be 24/96 or 24/192

Is there any word on the availability yet?

It is always a good thing that fellow headfier noticed these item, I have talked to the boss lately and they said they are still fine tuning the interface for the X3.

 

They have a lot of experience in manufacturing headphone amplifier/dac combo box, and their latest release Xduoo TA-01 (Which is also a dac with built in head amp, vacuum tube) sems rather promising, their X1 (Screenless music player) is not bad and powerful. Although nothing spectacular.

 

In summary, a brand that well looking at.
