    The 1642 uses JFETs whereas the 1612 uses bipolar input transistors. They're functionally identical, the 1642 has a higher noise spec, but it's still incredibly low.
    One listening test found the 1612 to be more ' "rocky" and forward' and suitable for listening to Springsteen, though you'd want to use a different opamp for Baroque chamber works. [​IMG]
    I guess that sums up the value of 'listening tests' for you...  [​IMG]

    I was thinking of buying a fiio x3ii in a couple of months, but this other x3 looks really promising too! Looking forward for some impressions!

    I agree and will they sell the RRP (100usd?)?....I get more peace of mind too with their after sales support than AE, Im ok if its <50usd from AE but it's a "Nay" beyond that, so far....just me sayin.

    One thing that cracks me up about the x3 adverts is the 'Application Scenarios' bit at the end. You know, to give people an idea of why they might want to listen to music: "Listen to the music indoor to give a good mood." Thanks for the tip!
    To be fair, though, it's not much different to the old iPod ads that claimed music increased one's desire to dance. [​IMG]

    Ok, I have sample in my hands for a while. Ergonomy sucks, so you know that is from China...
    But X3 is very well made, little bulky, but solid.
    Sound is warm (not much, but still warm) and dynamic (not lazy like Fiio X1). Definetly more refined and detailed then xDuoo X2 (and you can almost forget about hiss!). X3 has good separation, but narrow soundstage (damn...). You gonna love his power :)
    For me - must have in this budget. But you have to give credit of trust to developers.

    Soundstage much narrower, or just compared to x2?
  14. Inszy
    X2 has little more spacious sound, but with worse holography.
    But this X3 is just a sample not for sale. I don't know if it's gonna change when it's gonna hit to the stores.

    Is this a downgrade compared to Fiio X3 1st gen?
