I have been relatively happy with my xduoo x3. I think ive had it for a few years and it has just died on me. I am looking for a replacement DAP. I know that there are probably a lot of advancements made since this unit came out. I am not looking for anything in particular. I was happy with almost everything about the x3 except the screen sucked. Looking to spend less than $200.
I recently purchased the Sony NW-A55 Walkman and, after easily uncapping the European volume restriction, has proved to be an excellent player which can also double as a bluetooth headphone amplifier and a USB DAC for your laptop. Excellent battery life, excellent sound quality and nice size. Only real issue would be the dedicated 'Walkman' data cable.
