Information

Features

Technical specifications

Dual crystal oscillators
Native DSD decoding
All new X3 : Giving its peers the jitters


All-new digital audio architecture

JZ476OB+SA2000+CS4398, natively supporting
DSD, decoding SACD ISOS directly, also
supporting Iossless formats WAV,
FLAC, APE, WMA, ALAC, AIFF etc.


Dual crystal oscfllators

Dual crystal oscillators dedicated to multiples of 44.1 and 48kHz respectively,
ensuring lowestjitter and highest precision for playback of music
at all sample rates and eliminating all conversion artifacts.


Audiophile-grade architecture and components

Utilizing Cirrus Logic's top-flight CS4398 DAC coupled with our painstakingly tuned low-pass filter,the X3 realizes extremely low noise and phase distortion; also utilizing premium tantalum capacitorsin the analog circuit for minimum internal resistance for the best uncolored sound.


Further Improved USB DAC function

Supporting up to 192 kHz/24 bit audio as well as DSD playback*
+ASIO driver installation required for windows computers(plug-and-play on Macs)
via DSD plugin on windows computers

 

Supporting CTIA standard inline remotes on earphones (Apple, Samsung etc.)

10 band EQ and user-deflned playlists


All-new power management features

Supporting hibernation mode (power
consumption <5mA) for instant-on playback;
coulomb meter integrated in battery for
accurate battery % readings. Power
button flush with chassis avoids
accidental activation while remaining
easy to press; volume+ button includes
tactile marker for easy operation even
in your pocket.


Better build quality than ever

With all-metal chassis and high reflectance fine-grain faceplate bringing fit and finish to another level
Unique titanium color brings fresh appearance to a FiiO product.

 

All new UI (User Interface) design

With classic scroll wheel operation; six unique UI themes to Choose from.
