I want to know if there is a portable player that can play music like flac files as analog files by itself and play the songs without me having to connect that player to a computer or a phone to get the analog outcome
Sansa Clip+ http://www.sandisk.co.uk/products/music-video-players/clip-plus-mp3-player/ has an enviable reputation for quality.
Comparable if not better than a top of the range iPod. Amazingly it costs from as little as $30 on-line. Really. Check reviews. Don't miss out.
thanks for the answer but how will that convert digital to analog i dont see anything that mentions analog here, my question was is there a player that has the capability to play songs and inside it convert digital to analog by itself not just a media player the like the sansa clip
You can listen to a file digitally...but it would sound like a series of nasty rapid high-pitched tones. I know because I stupidly connected my HD25s to the coax out of my DX50 for a few seconds before I remembered that the headphone out was on the bottom and not the top.
When you are listening to your headphones plugged into your fiio the signal is analog not digital.
How are you connecting the X3 and your Xperia?
Were you using the Xperia as a transport to send the digital signal to your fiio? Or is the fiio capable of receiving the analog output of your Xperia and then amplifying the signal in this case if it is possible (I do not know much about the fiio) the Xperia is performing the digital to analog conversion and not the fiio.
whenever you use a DAP or your phone , they will always convert the digital 1 and zero of the music files to analog sound so that your ear can hear it , thus every single one of them actually have a digital to analog converter e.g a DAC
I really don't know the answer to your question there, could be many things contributing why the sound is less clear such as when you're using the X3 as stand alone player, it may have to with the power section of the X3 being supplied with USB power over just running on the battery. I would recommend you find the member ClieOS on our boards and send him a PM msg asking your question. Explain to him what you're hearing in which mode.
