Separate names with a comma.
I agree, my purpose in buying it........just not up to the dance.
Try reformatting, maybe you got a duff unit. Your experience is clearly not the norm
Already jumped through enough hoops, this puppy is going back.
Point accepted on not being the norm yet having used it, and suffered, I'm looking for a different player I can RockBox.
Get an X3 then, also a beautiful sounding unit
Ordered last week. Wondering now what smaller sized amp to go with it.....looking at the Oppo HA-2, is that overkill?
Oppo HA-2 is a dac/amp combo, and the output power is larger than x3, but not much. I suggest you buy a pure amp, like Fiio A5. It's a new product.
My short listed thoughts are for the X2, Oppo HA-2, Opus 11.....just not yet clear on which way to go, still learning you see.
That's a possibility. Or maybe just get a higher end DAP (Lotoo 5000 / Cayin N6) and be done with it for now....
X2 is a decent budget DAP that can drive budget earbuds like this Senfer PT15 I just got.
Quick photo I took of the pair:
That depends upon what cans are you trying to drive.
the X3 is fairly powerful, you might need an amp for the Havi's, I used to pair a Topping NX1 with mine, its cheap, clean and fairly powerful.
Penon suggest the A5 as a starting point. I'll probably wait until the X3 arrives and see how well it drives the Havi's and go from there.
X3 has enough power to drive Havi.
But why not wait for X10?
Thank you for the info regarding the Havi, much appreciated.
No thank you on the X10. I recently returned my Cayin N5 because it has a goofy wheel, although the player is very fine for the money the wheel just kills it. Definitely not interested in any DAP with a wheel.
I'm looking for a highly portable DAP, hopefully a Rockboxed X10 will fill that need. My 'full sized' main unit will be an Lotoo LPG or something similar.
Someone who has had all of them prefers Onkyo DP-X1R after AK380
