I guess, that X3K won't be more powerful than X3. It will rather be designed for IEMs and easier to drive headphones, however when plugged into E09S, it'll have enough juice for more demanding headphones. It'll propably lack the balanced line out compared to X7.
CS4398 is not a good choice, it's a little too dark for my taste, but it will be an upgrade compared to X3, and they already have more bright and analytical X5, so this DAC is a possible option.
 
But all that is just a speculation. 
 
FiiO confirmed, in a PM, that X3K will be released in a couple of months.

Too late for me, I was also interested in the X3K, but without any official announcement I've just purchased an X1 this Christmas, now until it dies, I won't look anywhere else.


Advice: don't log into head-fi :D every need to upgrade will be found here, LOL

  I hope it is as powerful as the X3 but has the scroll wheel and a better build than the X3...something like an all aluminum body with no plastic and  still about $200.

 
that is what we done

Here is a link to a Russian website with some information about the soon to be announced X3K. I don't know how accurate it is but it all seems very plausible. I'd love it if the new X3 did have the same form factor as the X1. It won't be released in December though..hopefully early in January.
