" The FiiO X3 (Second Generation) is another victory from the Chinese company that never fails to impress us. It isn't quite the budget champion that the X1 is, nor does it have the reference grade performance that the X5 provides. But is a solid mid-range product that keeps FiiO's flag flying high."
" The sound is more bright and the instrument separation is just amazing. Definitely, the FiiO X3 2nd gen is a worthy upgrade, and if anyone wants a dedicated hi-res music player and has the budget of ~15k then this is definitely the best choice hands down. "
