The FiiO X3iii Portable High Resolution Music Player is the third generation of FiiO’s celebrated X3 Portable High Resolution Music Player series, new for 2017. The new X3 3rd generation player is available in black.
Compared to the second generation of the FiiO X3, this model is now lighter, thinner, features an improved scroll wheel and tempered glass all whilst maintaining the classic FiiO control layout.
The X3iii features dual PCM5242 DAC chips for higher channel separation and stronger anti-interference technology to improve the signal to noise ratio.
The X3iii also features a 2.5mm balanced output to help you benefit from a wider sound stage. There is still a 3.5mm single-end output port on this model, as well as a SPDIF output. This makes the X3iii one of the most cost effective DAPs that feature both dual DACs and a balanced output currently available on the market.
Additionally, FiiO have added a new multifunction button to the side of the X3iii, which can be used for functions related to playback control, switching EQ settings, jumping through playlists and switching themes.
The X3iii can support up to a 256GB micro SD card, and supports WAV, APE, WMA, FLAC, ALAC, DSF and DFF file formats. The player also supports in line controls, has Bluetooth 4.1 built in, and a deep sleep mode for minimal battery drain.
