Also, how is the soundstage with the X1 > Havi? I remember reading one review that said the X1 lacked some soundstage depth, and I'd hate to buy an IEM with a nice soundstage only to have it held back with my source.

 

It will drive it in terms of adequate power, but not with a same sound enhancement as E11k.  The details and sondstage will improve driving Havi from X1/LO with E11k vs direct connection to X1/HO.  Regarding NX1, I'm waiting for that one to arrive.  Will do my comparison once I get it, but I'm more than sure E11k will be better.

Anyone have both the X3 and X1? Would like to know if anyone has compared these two?

post #2045 of 7658
Hi. My Havi is coming in and I take a preorder for the X1 at a local FiiO sales agent. I read that NX1 deliver 100 mW@32 ohms. The X1, 70 mW@32 ohms. So, the little difference in power really make an audible improvement for NX1, over the X1, for the Havi. I want to keep my portable rig as simply as I can.

no not as powerful from what I've heard. The X1 is weaker than both the X5 and X3 according to other people. It still is fairly powerful though.

I'll try to do that comparison when my demo unit arrives. Really eager to listen to the X1+E11k vs X3 as well.

Pre-ordered a X1 as well, I am wondering if I should cancel it and go with a DX90 now. Wanted to give the X1 to the other half, but if it sounds better than my X3, might keep it instead :redface:

just get a DX90 imo

Does X1 have a Voice Recorder function?

If you have the money to spare for the DX90, I'd totally go for it. Its a wonderful player and a fantastic DAC for line out use

it is most depend on the sound signature but not the power output when taling about Havi.

If it's not as powerful I think I'll stick with my X3 as I don't need and external amp at least not for my IEMs. The X1 looks like a very nice DAP but I don't want less power.

I see. Power related only, the X1 is capable for driving the Havi. Thanks!I have the X5/E12 combo but i don't use it for daily commutes, a Clip Zip do that for me but will be replaced por the X1.
