DX50 vs. FiiO X3 - For my CAR - any input appreciated!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have an ok car audio system (I hesitate to say good on a forum like this where good may = $100k+).

 

I just recently got the ability to have line-in so I can use an mp3 player in the car.

 

The DX50 and FiiO X3 caught my eye for two reasons.

 

1. The price is where I need to be.

 

2. They each have LINE-OUT - which is what I would be using to connect to my system.

 

 

So the scenario in the car arena is a little different than most folks here who are pairing these devices with high end head phones.

 

Unfortunately most of my collection is in lossy MP3 format (although higher bit-rate at least).

 

I WOULD like to experiment with studio quality audio - and I saw that the DX50 has the ability to play this format (does the X3 as well?).

 

I have read so many different things on the players - to the X3 sounding good with Mp3/lower end stuff etc etc.

 

Some opinions would help me greatly - and if anyone has had the ability to use either of these players in their cars that would be nice to hear about.

 

One final thought - I DO like the idea of buttons compared to touch screen - because then I can change stuff WITHOUT looking at the player while driving - however I would get a touch screen unit if my listening experience would be greatly improved.

Also something I would take into great consideration would be BASS response from the players - so when its time to crank the volume the bass is there on my digital bass tracks.
