Hi Everyone, My ancient player died so I went looking for a new one. Preferably one that could handle pretty much any format of music. After much searching I settled on the Fiio X3 series 2, not the series 3. Cost was a factor but quality more so. You can spend as little as $10 or as much as $1000. Neither end of that list had what I wanted and was willing to pay for. The Fiio X3 series 3 is just a bit cheaper than the series 2, but the features, and reviews favor the earlier model. The new one has better blue tooth and a few extra features (that likely no one will need and are marketing gizmos only), but the series 2 is sturdier and at least as capable. The series 2 is running about $200 and the series 3 about $180. Now the important part. It works great. It will play pretty much everything from MP3 to high rez. It doesn't care and will handle them all at the same time. Unless you look at the display it is not easy to tell them apart (except for really low rez stuff). It works as an external DAC as well. Storage is external by micro chip and it can use up to 128GB. That is the size I have. I have no idea how many files it can hold, but the number is huge. The number is huge even for uncompressed WAV files. It is easy to use and pretty much self explanatory in settings. It can handle high and low sensitivity phones. IMO well worth a look see if you are in the market.

Good listening
