    I wish it would power my 702's! lol

    No, i do have a desktop headphone amp made by british hi-fi manufacturer Naim.

    If you can get it at the new price i believe is £190 approx i don't think you get much better than that for a touch screen 32gig player with the SQ the X deliver's imo[​IMG]

    My best earbud is YUIN PK3. I don't have any IEM's cos I don't like stuff going inside my ears.

    I think you may be right about not being the best synergy??

    I've got the Koss KC75, no fatigue at all.

    I do rip all my music to above 256kbps.

    Strange , may be I need an amp like fiio3 just to give the earbud a boost!

    Got to say i have had good dap's in the past, enjoyed the sound from such players like my old Sony A818, further more with the A829 and Cowon D2 and i would listen to them when it took my mood for a bit of "in the ear fix", but this X, once i pick it up can not stop listening to the bleeding thing!

    I have had one very lazy sunday chillin out with the X, i must of racked up 8 hours playtime, my ears are melting! [​IMG]

    You can fry egg's on an X[​IMG]

    Ah, that does limit your choice in earphones i suppose. I know AKG do some earphones that are not canal type's, but not sure how they would compare to your PK's?

    Again, not owning a Fiio3 amp, i can only imagine that would take away from the excellent sound the X amp delivers and might defeat the object of such a good internal amp in this dap, just my guess[​IMG]

    Hope you find some good drivers soon, as the true X sound awaits you sir.

    Shame you cannot get on with in the ear, would really open up your option of some of the iem's that are on offer that go very well with the X[​IMG]

    Whats this 12 TONE ANALYSIS function is available?




    I think this is for the transfer software on the pc to fix bugs within that and not any firmware upgrade bug fix's of the actual player software itself.

    Yeah, what the hell is 12 tone analysis! anyone.

    I was gona go for AKG 319, which are the best earbuds by AKG, but in a review it was close to the YUIN PK2 (Which were too harsh for me)

    I think its best to buy an amp! and see,

    But I'm still listening to my X!!

    The battery doesn't seem to last long, maybe because I have all the sound effects turned on except for the clear stereo, and VPT but EQ on, brightness is on 1.

    Akash, is your wifi turned off? You might get longer life out of it once it's been charged a few times.

    And the firmware update is for the content transfer tool.

    # Additional function of Content Transfer Version 1.2
    Video file conversion function is available.
    This feature is available for WALKMAN models that can play WMV files.
    Refer to the Operation Guide of your WALKMAN to see which models support WMV files.
    # Automatic Update function is available.
    # Windows Media Digital Rights Management (DRM) files (e.g., WMA, WMV) are supported.

    How do I know if my WIFI is ON or OFF, I've not used it yet.

    Is there a symbol on the display screen?

    Thanks Sooieq and FortisFlyer75

    What does content transfer tool actually mean?

    Thanks Sooiez and FortisFlyer75




    The content transfer tool is on the CD that came with the X.
    I don't use it at all, I just use Explorer or WMP to transfer and I don't use the X for video.

    Re: the wifi. Go into 'settings' and look for 'Wireless LAN settings'. Select it and then see if it's on or off. The symbol only appears on the top right of the screen if it's actually connected to a network.

    Talk about gobley gook!

    Is anyone going to find this feature usefull?

    If it improves shuffle mode in anyway thus not repeating certain songs with a strange regular occurance or play two or even there songs in a row from the same album then that would be great.

    Even with my Naim headphone amp and power supply which is around £500+ worth there is not a huge gulf of difference in improvement over the X sound by itself, i actually prefer to go back to direct hp out when i am not listening to full size cans, as the X amp gives it that unique sig that it has.

    I think even CN11 has stated there is not a world of difference between his Shadow amp and the X alone.

    I think it's still the bud's possibly Akash?

    Is there a reason you cannot have in ear canal iem's or does it just bug you having it in the ear? as it is a shame you cannot have canal iem's.

    Most probably having most setting's on will drain the battery a little quicker, but like SooZieq pointed out, wifi turned on would be a killer.

    Have you also tried having all those settings off as maybe that is discolouring and distorting the sound somewhat.

    I usually have all my setting off. Ths may be why my battery last a looong time[​IMG]

    Correct. The difference is not huge, but it can be noticeable with better quality recordings. Think of it this way, a very high quality amp takes the SQ of the X and sort of expands on its strengths. Soundstage gets more encompassing, and deepens, and bass gets deeper as well. Those are the two biggest areas of change that I hear. If I had to quantify the amount of quality gain I hear, I'd say about 10-20%... The ALO Rx is also a very nice match with the X and takes it to another level. The X does sound so good on its own that when you go back to listening it alone, it quickly becomes enjoyable again.

    Since the Shadow is on loan over The Pond, maybe soozieq can describe what she's hearing with it now too. [​IMG]
