With the development of the times, dramatic changes have taken place on the methods of recording sound, from wire recording at the earliest time, to reel to reel tape recorder, LP record, and then to CD, DVD in digital era. For now, digital audio formats which represented by MP3 have become the main stream. However, due to the convenience of obtaining and recording sound, after the procedures of recording, transforming, compressing and format-changing, the sound would be no longer the true and original one of the live scene. Fortunately, after long periods of research and development, FiiO Company finally succeeded in making one high quality portable music player which can support five main lossless music formats and original master copy at 192K/24BIT, aiming to help music lovers to find the ever lost sound.

X3; Way to be!
from New Rochelle NY
I gave up. I had had it with my MP3/phone all-in-one device. I wanted better sound. Along came the X3 and the reviews were quite good so I bit! It's been fantastic. The unit takes a little bit of getting used to with the button layout but other than that the music is superb. That said I'm now playing Apple Lossless files (ALAC) on the player with really good headphones (B&O H6s). And fear not; this little unit can drive the larger cans without issue. Do know that you should update the software once you get the unit and while it can accept a 64 gig MicroSD card, the manual states the software should be copied over to a 32 gig card and then installed. Also Ive had no luck displaying artwork on the player's screen. Perhaps ALAC files dont display it from the metadata. Im enjoying my X3 immensely. Ripped CDs sound excellent as well. Im a happy guy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
