    The Fiio X3 Thread.

    Hi,   I just received my X3. Is it possible to hide all the tracks that are in the memory (from the factory), short of deleting them?

    HRT Music Streamer II causing static every few hours

    Was anyone able to grab a pair of the DT-1350's from AC Gears? I caught it too late but am curious if it ever was truly available for that cheap.

    The Fiio X3 Thread.

    Just picked up the Fiio X3 for $139 shipping from Adorama. I have been wanting to replace my Zune HD. To be honest, I don't listen to portable music that often but when I do, I don't want to drain the battery on my phone. This is a small-ish barrier to entry.

    Help, I can't decide how to spend my $300 between noise-cancelling and open-ear headphones!

    Cheap DACs coming for iPhone 5?

    It makes it easier because it's sending a digital signal out (like optical or coax digital). So you just need to plug it in to a DAC. This is even better than using a LOD which relies on on-board DAC.

    Replacing Zune HD

    I'd like to hear the responses too because I don't think such a thing exists.

    If USB sends a digital signal, why can you change the volume at the source?

    So are you guys saying that the "purest" signal you can get from a DAC is to set it at MAX volume through the source/OS/media player? And control the volume through the amp?
