My question is will the x3 sound better using 16/44 files than the ipods, there are no high-res files available for this music.
YES! Most definitely, I was a die hard fan of my imod/cf ipod video but after buying the fiio x3 I am surprised.
The quality is finer and the benefits of the x3 weren't as expected. It has a very black background, it's precise in a musical way not in a analytical way, and it has the wolfson feel to it, it is absolutely stunning listening to the deftones on it with some ue6000
