    @Igor Ruzaev, thanks for your "help". Let me be the first to say you're a real asset to the Head Fi forum! For your information, I did read the manual posted on xVortex's site before I asked my question. He gives clear instructions on how to Rockbox the X3, but I didn't see any specific instructions for the X20,,, So, if you will kindly step aside, maybe someone else can provide a more helpful answer. Or is this no longer allowed in this thread?? I guess I'll just ask xVortex thru a PM.

    The procedure to install rockbox it's just like updating the fw: copy the file to the micro SD card and select update firmware from dap menu.

    @jaxz, thanks for your kind and helpful reply. Much appreciated....

    sure thing, you're welcome. and don't forget to visit page 17 of this thread to find all instructions from the developer.

    @Igor Ruzaev, you could have given your second reply the first time around, and I might have respected you more....

    What happened to the Xduoo X10 II ?
    Cant find it on aliexpress or gearbest or penonaudio..
    Is it going to be released at some point?

    I am trying to decide today if I buy the X3II or the X20 although the X20 double the price and is out of my budget..
    Then I decided to look into the X10 II but cant find it.

    Thanks.

    Just wanted to quickly follow up on this.
    It took forever (about a week), and it crashed several times, but the script vetted my iTunes library and music folders to only contain music rated 4-5 stars.

    Unfortunately, it will be some time before I will get to enjoy the results on an x3ii.
    My eBay purchase was cancelled by the seller (who claimed he was trying to help me).
    He claimed there were problems with his latest batch, which sounded like total BS.
    My guess is a power seller employed slave made a mistake listing (it was $10 less than regular market price).
    I reordered from Aliexpress on 11.11, but will not likely get it anytime soon thanks to massive backlog delays due to an ongoing postal strike here in Canada.

    Since I have time to kill, I have wiped my 256gb microsd, copied my itunes (not the database) music folder (which was located in the main directory of my M: drive) and tested the results with my Benjie T6 (using both native firmware and rockbox).

    I can confirm that I am now able to use playlists from iTunes on the device, and am also able to generate playlists on rockbox which I can then import into iTunes. For both scenarios, I've still needed to use further scripts and programs in order to get the playlists to work. I can provide more details if there is interest.

    If anyone is interested, I explain how I used this on my T6 here: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/the-shenzhen-benjie-bj-t6-agptek-rocker.834797/page-46#post-14619946

    I am trying to figure out the difference between X3ii and X20.
    Other than the DACs and different design, anything else I am missing?
    Do the DACs justify the over $100 price difference?
    I don't think there are any reviews for the X3ii in this site.
    I see two for the X20.
    I have 48 hours to decide which one to get.

    Thanks

    x3 uses cs4398 (not ak4490 like x3ii). it sounds good, but i usually prefer ess9018. it also depends of the amplification, but find sabre dac a bit more analytical, cleaner sound.
    between x3 and x20, there is also a difference of amount of distortion vs power. so you can get a cleaner sound at same power. x20 is more powerful.

    x20 has balanced output. although this is a feature i thought i'd not use (iems usually don't need the extra 6dB, power, of balanced mode), i've found myself using balanced output more often than single end: crosstalk difference is big, so you get wider soundstage (this might be interesting for some iems); i've managed to drive even he400i headphones with this little beast (balanced mode, near maximum volume) with low distortion.

    so the differences can be big, depending of what's important to you.
