Thank you.
I have a suggestion for you: would you be so kind to make a sound signal or an on screen message when x3 drains its battery to 0%? It just powers off in the middle of the track when it is empty and then you can power on it, so you don't really understand what had happened and have to look on battery icon in the corner to understand that it is out of power.

Hi Gix,

Unfair... the X3II is a "mature" product with a "final" firmware revision... on the other hand the X3MIII is a better player (speaking of the hardware) and just had its first update...

The only complaint I have is that FiiO should have released this update LONG ago... but unlike other manufacturers, FiiO is still listening to their customers and update their products... so I keep the faith for an even better X3MIII experience in the near future...

Regards, iBypass ;-)

I noticed a bug in the new firmware. When i switch off completely the player and then turn it on again later, it shows a white screen and turns off immediately. Then when I switch it on again, it stays on and works well. It happened to me 3-4 times already. Never happened with the previous firmware.

Hy there,
after installing the new firmware listening to AIFF Albums results that some titles only have loud hissing noise (no sound transfer), next time listening the tracks do playback. Same with several Albums. The same noise appears with AIFF in playlist while listening via bluetooth (would be nice if all non funktional tracks would be skipped while connected via bluetooth).
best regards

The problem i reported above is happening more often now. Everytime I turn it on, it just shows a white screen and turns off. Then i have to turn it on again for it to work. I tried doing a factory restore but the problem still persists. Please acknowledge and fix problem. This is a serious problem.

Welcome FiiO beta testers.  This is standard practice for FiiO.  Go Sony if you want a player that just works.

Does Sony have a unit at this price point with built-in coax spdif output? That's important to me.

The new firmware is working well so far.

Hello everybody, first post!
I have upggraded my X3, the new firmware is much better, even if I still experience some problems with gapless playback (not as before, but the playback is not perfect).
I also have some problems with images (cover art) in FLAC files: some are displayed, some not.
Is there a maximus size/resolution or embedded file type limit/restriction?

PS: I can provide output from metaflac, if needed.

have reported a firmware bug in 1.1.4 in the Fiio forums but there is no reply or acknowledgement from anyone. When the battery drops to 2 bar the player keeps switching off when headphones are plugged in. If no headphones are plugged in, it stays on. And when battery is full or while charging it stays on as well. I never experienced this before. This is a serious issue and hope it gets fixed soon. 2 bars of battery is still a lot and was ok prior to the update.
