Should have went with an iBasso DX50 over the FiiO. Uses a custom Android OS and uses an IPS Touchscreen that's SUPER accurate.

What killed the DX50 for me back when I bought my Fiio X3 was that it lacked USB Dac functionality. But it seems to have that now.

Comes with these if you want to deface jazz it up a bit.

But why would you???

With the included silicone case you wouldn't even see them. With the gaping hole SD slot on the side I think the cover will be a permananyt fixture.

Thanks SpykeZ.
If it was the X3 or X5 I'd probably spend another $40 on a case, but seems excessive for a $130 player.
Maybe if/when the silicone one starts getting tatty...

Sorry, that's JPlay v6. JPlay is a high end digital music player and, in my opinion, has the best SP of any player and I've pretty much tried them all.. It's not a music manager, just a player that uses as little computer resources as possible. The tl:dr story is that it streams digital files from the memory sticks in your computer using the clock in your USB DAC (and will even do so while the computer is in hibernate mode). If buying new speakers. new amp, new preamp, new cables etc. peels back a layer of an onion where perfect SQ is at the core, Jplay will peel back another layer.

"Fully DAC-driven asynchronous playback for all playback Engines: PC clock not used anymore thanks to new “DAC Link” feature! "

LOL TT and cassettes...I'm older than that!
