Product Details

FiiO X3 Portable Lossless Personal Audio Player

FiiO's X3 personal audio player is the perfect music storage device for audiophiles and music lovers alike. Focusing efforts on high quality audio, this portable music player supports lossless music files like APE, FLAC, ALAC, WMA, and WAV. If that wasn't enough, it also supports master copy music at 192 kHz/24-bit, making it the most complete professional portable music player in the industry.

High Quality Chipset

Rather than using the DAC function of the main controller chip, the X3 utilizes the WM8740 chip designed by the Wolfson Company. This chip was also adopted by HiFi audio brand REGA for their top-level CD player, Saturn. Because this high quality chip is committed solely to the DAC function, the X3 exceeds all other portable audio devices in quality. Additionally, the X3 adopts the AD8397 amplifier chip, which has an output sound quality similar to a Class A audio amplifier.

Power and Function

Enjoy 10 hours of playback time with the built-in, USB rechargeable, lithium polymer battery. The bass and treble adjustable circuitry in the X3 is analogous, offering a more natural influence on audio to get the sound you want. This device also provides cover and lyric display, gapless function, boost volume, and maximum volume settings.

Physical Build

The FiiO X3 is well furnished with headphone out, line out, digital coaxial out, and USB 2.0 for charging and syncing. It is also equipped with a 2.4" colorized TFT screen with a 240 x 320 resolution and the body is made from aluminum alloy. The X3 includes 8 GB of built-in memory, which is expandable up to an additional 64 GB with a Micro SD card (not included).

FiiO X3 Portable Lossless Personal Audio Player
FiiO X3 Portable Lossless Personal Audio Player is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very hard to get music installedI was very excited about this player because I wanted to replace my Ipod & dislike Apple products. I purchased a external memory card for it the same day I bought it, in anticipation of storing lots of music on it. Since this unit is made in China, I was not suprised the instructions were seriously lacking. The navigation is a bit wonky & takes some getting used to. However, after spending at least 20 hours loading music onto the external card (several different times & methods) I was not able to get more than a hundred songs onto it before it would stop recognizing the external memory or say it was in the wrong format & finally it displayed a "blue screen of death" similar to a memory dump & so I returned it after only trying it for 3-4 weeks. The player performed fine from the internal memory, but way too much money for a 8gb player, plus I have tons more music I need to store on any player I purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it !!!!Great features and sound. I love that it has both headphone and line out capability. It can also be used as a DAC between your computer and sound system. I have started purchasing high resolution albums, but it will also handle all my ripped CD mp3's and recordings from vinyl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good thinkit comes to me in spain in only on weak. I listen defferent music all this time and it is very good. i use headphones - atomic floyd from apple store, not much bass in them but the player got settings tthat increase bass. but headphones got alot of power and good soud specialy with the player. I listen the FLAC LossLess music and it is realy amazing. I got my sound card for computer - creative sound blaster. and the cuality ofm sound is much better in player then in card! And one interesting think player got relay on output of head phones. I think it is very cool player

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, flawed firmwareI've never been an early adopter, but I admire FiiO's other products very much. They are well-designed and great values. I could not wait to get this DAP.First off, it sounds wonderful. You will notice the difference even with a cheap stereo. The sound is tight and colorful. The X3 in the same league with my Dacport. The unit's connectivity is superb, too. Connecting and transferring songs from a computer could not be simpler, no drivers needed. The X3 appears on your directory like a regular flash drive. It can play any kind of music file that you throw at it.I like the hardware UI very much. The buttons feel natural and it is easy to use with one hand (if you are right-handed). And FTW, they included a line out jack.The firmware is rather clunky. You won't find your songs in the index until you manually index it. It won't index lossy files (lumped into unknown album). And it won't separate artists' songs into albums. All songs from all albums are thrown together. Hopefully they will upgrade the firmware to fix these issues, but they are not show-stoppers.The X3 sounds so much better than other low-price DAP's (and there are some fine ones), that it is quite a different product. You can really blast your hi-fi cans with the X3.

So I just purchased a NAD C265BEE Integrated Amplifier and I would to use this device as a digital player through that amp. Will that work? In other words can I do a line level out with this device? Thanks.
