The X3 is the heart of FiiO’s selection of high resolution digital music players, now in its 2nd generation with all new updated circuitry and exterior design.

Native DSD Support
All new digital audio architecture means the new X3 can now handle DSD decoding natively, giving listeners access to this highly regarded digital audio format. Of course, the X3 also supports all of the popular lossless formats in your music library, including WAV, FLAC, APE, WMA, ALAC, and AIFF.

Dual Crystal Oscillators
The X3 makes use of two crystal oscillators, one each for the 44.1kHz and 48kHz frequency multiples. This no-compromise design ensures the lowest jitter and highest precision for playback of music at all sample rates, eliminating all conversion artifacts.

Audiophile-Grade Architecture
Utilizing the Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC coupled with our painstakingly tuned low-pass filter, the X3 realizes extremely low noise and phase distortion. The X3’s analog circuitry utilizes premium tantalum capacitors with minimal internal resistance for the best uncolored sound signature.

There’s only so much that can be put into words. Take a listen and let your ears decide.

Product Features

  • All new digital audio architecture with native DSD support
  • Dual crystal oscillators dedicated to multiples of 44.1kHz and 48kHz frequencies for lowest jitter at all sample rates.
  • Audiophile-grade architecture and components with Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC

  • New user interface design on a high quality 2-inch LCD screen

A VERY mature budget hi-res DAP Starting with packaging, I do appreciate FiiOs attention to details with a sturdy carton “gift” box inside of a packaging sleeve which comes handy for storage of DAP and accessories.

Great DAP but little bit overhyped by some reviewers First of all I’d like to mention that my previous DAP was Sony X1050 and this review mostly will be loosely based on comparison with it.UI and features:I don’t want to talk much about features and user interface. UI is pretty simple and responsive, slow at times. Coming from x1050 finding tracks takes much more time and while still good overall UI and navigation is nowhere as good as sony’s, no surprises here.Another clear downside from walkman is battery life which is still…

I LOVE THIS DAP: Best FiiO High Resolution Music Player for the Money — Hands Down! I LOVED the original FiiO X3 and upgraded to the new FiiO X3-II based on that experience. Of all FiiO players, the X3-II hits the sweet spot best of cost, specs, quality build, features, and performance. Comparing the X3 to the X3-II, you first notice that the X3-II is a complete rework of the device. The screen is smaller (to accommodate the new wheel navigation), no internal flash memory is provided, and the line out and digital (coaxial) out jacks have been combined. The new navigation…
