    The FiiO X1 Discussion and Help and Support Thread |192K/24B|100mW | LO | inline remote

    Finally got the uSD for my X1 today! The difference in SQ to my Sony NWZ-E454 is like night and day (managed to gift away the old DAP). Whilst I'll admit it's a bit of a dust/fingerprint magnet, I'm liking it already and the chunkiness of the casing and switch action reminds me of the Minidisc...

    Ah, thought as much. I did peel of a thin sheet second time round, so that explains it.   Now to wait for the uSD and headphones!

    The FiiO X1 Discussion and Help and Support Thread |192K/24B|100mW | LO | inline remote

      Couldn't resist it any more... Just fired off an Amazon order for some NAD HP50 headphones. So some point next week I'll be able to hear what the new X1 HP50 music combo sounds like.   EDIT: Unfortunately one miniscule critique of the X1 packaging, namely, the Number 2 tab, which is...

    The FiiO X1 Discussion and Help and Support Thread |192K/24B|100mW | LO | inline remote

    Hi   Just wondered if anyone has played with the line out settings in the X1? Is the headphone volume setting remembered when you go to 'line out mode' and restored when you go back to 'headphone' mode?   Cheers   Locksbury   P.S.: For my 2p worth, audio is always a subjective thing, so...

    Closed Headphone Suggestions?

    Za Warudo. Annoyingly, my ear canals do not play nicely with ear buds or IEMs. But I'll add the HP100/150s to the list. :)

    Will the Fiio L5 LO Cable work with Sony NWZ-E454?

    Hi   I was wondering if anyone has tried the Fiio L5 LO Cable with the Sony NWZ-E454 successfully? It'd be nice to have a line out from the portable to drive my amps (the headphone output on the sony isn't much good for that).   That should keep me tide over till the X1 becomes available...

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    Hi Joachim   As per sods law I managed to get some sound a bit later; well at least playing through Xmms.   I'll have to look at that guide you linked and similar ones later to get all sound via the ODAC.   Locksbury

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    Hi   I had success yesterday listening to my O2+ODAC combo on my Windows box and again very please with the sound.   However, when I tried it on my Linux laptop (fresh Slackware 14.1 install), there was no sound...   I've done the usual searches on this forum and elsewhere, but not found...

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    Hi guys   Just a bit of a quick update, I put my O2 kit together last week for some tests and it's sounding promising on the Grados! Personally I had no 'ZOMG' moments, but the little extra bass on stuff like AC/DC and Muse is welcome, I can't wait to see how things change as my brain adapts...

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    In a similar (but digital) vein to jhao19's switchable setup...   I have two PCs at my desk, one is a Mac Mini (on top of the desk itself) and my Windows PC (where I've got the USB hub in my monitor cabled to one of the root USB sockets on the motherboard) and I'm aiming to use an O2+ODAC as a...

    Yeah, if the chap is popping over the border to Germany to post things, then no extra tax.

    Quote: I did spot this option and read about it on Headnhifis website, but just wanted to check. Just as I thought; I'll have to take my chances then.

    The Fiio X3 Thread.

    Changing tack a bit, I understand that there is still no playlist support in the latest firmware. I did try to read the pdf of the manual and watch example videos of how to drive an X3, but just wanted to check a few things.   So, am I correct to assume that:   a) To get a selection of music...

    The Fiio X3 Thread.

      I understand from other posts that the X3 has a 2Vpk-pk level line out signal which is better suited to proper audio gear and that sometimes the inputs on some car steros are more expecting the headphone outputs of things like iPods. So you may want to trying plugging your X3 into the car...
