Questions about Fiio X3

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have been using the iAudio X5L media player for quite some years now. It is about 6 years old. For a few months I have been using the line out on it and strapping it to the Fiio E11. The line out of in seems to be loosing one channel a lot of the time so I have some things to ask about the Fiio X3. The main thing that I think I will like about the X3 is the fact that it isn't touch screen. I have never liked them. I also much prefer dials rather that buttons to control the volume. I am planning on strapping the E11 to this too if I get it. On my iAudio X5L, if I am using the line out, I can only control the volume by the E11 which is what I want. I always have the volume on the lowest possible on the X5L so the battery lasts longer. I am hoping that you can still use the sound effects like the EQ while using the line output on the Fiio X3.

 

If people know about the X3, I would like to know more about it.

There's no reason to strap the E11 to the X3 since the amp in it is equivalent to the E17.

And yes. People know lots about the X3 :

I will ask more on those threads. The only reason I like the E11 it because of its dial. It means I won't need to take the device out of my pocket to increase the volume as well as improving battery life. I am also much much more used to dials for the volume control.

Better go with the x1 if you really want to use an external amp. It has line-out.

 

In due time there'll be a new version of the x3 with scroll weel and stuff as I remember.
