    Fiio X5 3rd gen || 2x AKM 4490 || Balanced Out || DSD || DXD | DTS | Android || Dual Card Slot

    My current portable is an X3 1st gen, Leckerton UHA-6S.MII and Weston 4R.  Thinking up upgrading this year to the X5 3rd gen and some Campfire Andromeda IEMs.

    I know, old post but I always get a chuckle when people claim digital is nothing but a bunch of ones and zeros.  It's not.  It's a bunch of pulses and the condition in which they arrive at their destination will make a difference in the reconstruction of the signal, including amplitude, timing...

    Have you tried plugging it into your PC/MAC and see if you reformat it?

    The problem is, if  Windows does not recognize a file or filing format, it will assume it's corrupt.  I have a 2TB external hard drive I use for work that I know with 100% certainty, there are no issues but every time I plug it in, Windows always wants to scan it.  This can also arise when a...

    Don't ever let Windows scan any removable media.  It's always a good idea to eject it before removal but last time I scanned a memory stick, Windows corrupted it to the point I had to reformat.

    New Leckerton UHA-6S MKII Portable Headphone Amplifier Announced (Update User Impressions Added July 20th 2012)

    I never tried the 4627-1Bs with my AKG702s or Grados but used the 8620 with them and didn't like that combo. 8620s work very well with Sen HD600 and HiFi Man HE500.

    With the AKGs and Grados, you might try an OPA627. Both those headphones are very forward and the 627 my smooth things a bit.

    New Leckerton UHA-6S MKII Portable Headphone Amplifier Announced (Update User Impressions Added July 20th 2012)

    With my old iBasso P4, I spent a lot of time swapping OPAs but I always seemed to settle back on the 8620.  I have been running the 8610's in my Leckerton but recently I ordered a set of 4627-1B from DigiKey and soldered them up.  Been using them for a bit over a week now and this morning I did...

    iFi iDSD Micro DSD512 / PCM768 DAC and Headphone Amp. Impressions, Reviews and Comments.

    So where do you buy this thing?  I found only one seller on the iFi list, Music Direct, but they have it listed for $499.  That seems excessive as I saw a listing for $189 but none in stock.

    New Leckerton UHA-6S MKII Portable Headphone Amplifier Announced (Update User Impressions Added July 20th 2012)

    The 8610 and 8620 are the same OPA but the 8610 is a single and the 8620 is a duel. In reading on the Leckerton web site, the 8620 will give you more gain with low impedance headphones by running duel OPAs for each channel.  For me, I don't have a need in my Leckerton but I do run a single 8620...

    New Leckerton UHA-6S MKII Portable Headphone Amplifier Announced (Update User Impressions Added July 20th 2012)

    I have gone back and forth between the X3 DAC and the Leckerton and 'I think' I prefer the Leckerton DAC. this comes from long listening to music I know well but it is not blind testing and I may be swayed by the coolness factor of my digital cable. :sunglasses: Ether way, I'm very happy with...

    New Leckerton UHA-6S MKII Portable Headphone Amplifier Announced (Update User Impressions Added July 20th 2012)

    Yes. I use the digital out of my FiiO X3 and then drive a pair of Westone 4R's. Just made up a quick coax cable using Switchcraft right-angel connectors. Best sounding portable I have. Previously I was using an iBasso P4 with the line out of the X3.

    Will you guys please stop!! About a year ago I sold my DB2/PB2 combo with a whole boatload of OPAs and buffers thinking I wouldn't miss it.  I was wrong, I was honorably wrong but right now I can't afford to replace it.  All this talk is making me want them back.  Where is that damn unsubscribe...

    Did you try to hold the reset button for ten seconds or more?  Worked for me in the past when I thought I killed mine.

    Let's see what they come out with in the next version.  Nice thing about the X3, unlike an iPhone, if you don't like it, you can switch back.

    The Fiio X3 Thread.

    I have found that version 1.31 was the last stable release for the X3 as it fixed the hanging issue in version 1.23. Version 2.1 is mostly a disaster. My unit couldn’t play three songs without locking up and you need a paperclip to reset it. Being that nothing has come out of FiiO to support the...

    For now, I'm sticking with firmware version 1.31.  Prior to 1.31, I had endless problems with the player hanging during playback and bricked so many times I returned two units.  Update to 1.31 and its was stable for months but once I upgraded to 2.10, all the hanging problems returned in...
