Thanks for this, I picked mine up from there last evening, very easy transaction and the guy was nice and helpful.  This is my first FiiO player and so far I'm loving it!

You're welcome. I ended up getting mine elsewhere (X3i upgrade discount), but got a really good vibe from the folks there.

I think that the seller that you found is FiiO . 260$ is a special price so that only first generation owners will be able to get discount to 160$.

i may be crazy/ignorant, but do you all not see the X3ii that has been selling on amazon for ~3days through "tinbel"? that store is rated well and they have roughly 7 left at this point.... i dont know why you all are dealing with aliexpress and this other garbage when you can just buy right on amazon... its not prime, but you'll probably get it before the weekend if u order now...

 

of course, i may missing something, i just simply wanted to contribute to this conversation as im about to buy one, and have been following this thread for like 2 weeks now..

http://item2.gmarket.co.kr/English/detailview/item.aspx?goodscode=670292428

Thank you very very much for this link :beerchug:
I've tried to contact Dignis directly via email and they gave me a price of 37.5 USD + 23 USD for EMS shipping with tracking. They also accept PayPal only and my new debit card is unfortunately not assigned with my PayPal yet, while this store has a 20% discount promotion for the new customers purchasing first order via Visa card (you can claim your discount coupon on the main page). They also charge 16 USD only for EMS shipping, therefore I spent € 41.25 only (certainly less than 60 USD offered by Dignis themselves)
As for FiiO service, please allow me to leave a couple of words also. On Monday afternoon I found a DHL tracking number within my order and later contacted local DHL office to find out estimated delivery time from China to Russia. However, they told me that Russian office doesn't import parcels to the individuals, they work with corporate clients only and such parcel won't be accepted by customs and will be returned. I wrote a message to FiiO in Aliexpress regarding that, representative was offline at the moment (Chinese time =+5 from Moscow, so I guess it was a late evening there). Imagine my astonishment when in the early morning I discovered an updated tracking number of Singapore EMS. Representative also explained that it is impossible to send battery stuff from China and the service is slow, so they sent it from Singapore. Such a service for an item purchased for discounted price. Simply Bravo, Fiio!

I find it hard to believe that you have been following this thread for two weeks and find it odd that some are dealing with aliexpress.

Tl,DR : Fiio X3 1st gen owner can buy the 2nd gen for $160 via aliexpress.

Also everyone is not from america ;).

post #1930 of 9272

no, i've definitely been following it for two weeks. you're right though about assuming everyone is from america lol. we tend to do that, myself included. i was aware of the first-gen customers saving money, i just forgot it was an aliexpress exclusive thing. i dont know why fiio didnt just offer this promo through their site rather than linking with ali-e. amazon ships internationally though, dont they?

Here are the details on the AliExpress order.  http://www.head-fi.org/t/761297/special-price-for-buying-fiio-x3-2nd-gen-to-customers-with-x3-1st-gen

post #1932 of 9272
Quick question on the FW shipping with the first 2nd gen units, does it have the 5800 song limit that was on some recent FW versions for other Fiio players? Or is this limit not present?

This is a key factor in my decision to purchase.

Am a bit surprise/confuse to see price US $135,00 for the X1 at the AliXpress sit. I have paid less here in Quebec, (Canada Computer/Layton) 125,00 $

$440,00CAD ==> X5. $250,00 ==> X3II.

Pleasantly surprised to find that on MiccaStore (US) you can get X3ii for $209 & bundle the E12A for only $130 ($30 off list price) !!!
Price wise that's equivalent to an X5... But hearing such good things about the E12A I'd rather go for a stack with a great amp than get a player that'll be refreshed in half a years time.
*edit* I see this deal was already covered in the thread, oops :P
