Re: Help With Fiio X3, new owner.

Try a different usb cable. change the setting back to storage (unless you want to use it as a usb dac....I am assuming you want to use it as an mp3 player, yes?). Linux may give you some problems, yes. Try windows xp or 7 if you can. TRy different usb ports on your computer.

Good luck!

Re: "fun" sounding full size open phones?

Marcus, ain't that the truth ;)

Re: "fun" sounding full size open phones?

The new oppo pm-3 should not need an amp. Any chance we may see one of these soon, Marcus? Would love a listen ;)

Re: New DAP

I have the dx50 and it is great! You may also want to check out the fiio x1 when marcus gets it (should be soon, right?). Pretty cheap but apparently good option. You cannot use it as a dac, but it does do line out, which is great.

Re: Indecisive between Fiio X3 and Ibasso DX50

+1 on the ibasso dx50 (which is what I have). It should be a more analytical sounding player over the x3 (which I found to be slightly warmer in flavour when I listened to it). I really like my dx50 but I also like the treble and bass controls on the x3 (the equaliser on the dx50 is not great and it...

Re: iBasso DX50 landed!

I find mine just locks up randomly sometimes. Have checked the files and they appear fine and work fine on the computer. Always try and note when it does lock up and what its playing - still cannot find a trend. I wonder if it is a cache issue and the cache is full and is having problems. Might be w...

Re: Need a good DAP

Wow, harsh realities Marcus. Maybe I should just save my cash and get another headphone (Ive got multiple heads :D ). Was thinking about the hifiman he400's, although I know that I would probably need some more amplification. Maybe they would be fine with my fiio e7 and my macbook? Have not blown th...

Re: Need a good DAP

Honestly, there should be a greater difference between cans then there is between sources. My only query was really between the dx50 and the x3. The quick listen I had to both of them was not really enough to discern which was better, as I was listening to felix's music on one and mine on the other....

Re: Need a good DAP

You legend! Well, that pretty much seals it for me. If you think the dx50 and dx90 sound relatively the same, and you think the dx90 sounds better than the x3, then logically the dx50 sounds better than the x3. Who's on first?

Re: Daps

Yeah, good call Felix . My mistake, my understanding was that u had not listened to the x3. Dx90 sounds interesting but short battery life!

Re: Daps

Well, well, well, it is interesting to read up on all these new "so called" audiophile daps. I have been using my iriver e10, and while this thing on has a small hdd (6gb), it has bags of power. It has 40 steps in its volume control, and I cannot remember the time I went over half way with any of my...

Re: Daps

Cheers guys. Gougman, nice to hear that it sounds better than your j3. You have tried it against your other players and perceive a notable difference in sound quality? I know that the fiio x3 would probably blow the other two out of the water with its amp power. I know that Felix went with the dx50 ...
