Anyone know the output impedance coming out the 3.5mm and 2.5mm?
rodizzle
Yes, it is.
Expected a lot from the technical data but was sorely disappointed after listening it. Sound is flat, lacks energy and excitement. I am glad that I did not order it blind as I did with X10, which was total disappointment, X20 sounds a little bit better but not enough to use it. I have X3 for a couple of years now and it is an excellent DAP even with all its interface limitations and for a price it is just a steal. I am really puzzled, why in the world xDuoo could not repeat their their success with X3?

Thanks buddy...Maybe the HIBY R3 is the one to look for as for an upgrade.

No problem. I am waiting for the R3 but purely sound wise, the dual 9018DAC DP-S1/XDP-30R looks to have R3 beat based on initial reviews. So long as you can do without extra functions the R3 has e.g. streaming.
I have a good looking xDuoo X10 brick...just sayin'.
For how much was it sold at massdrop.com last time?
Is this a dual DAC DAP? From what I could gather from reviews, it is just a single Sabre DAC.

Depending on where you are, the Pioneer XDP-30R or Onkyo DP-S1 with two of the same ESS DACs can be found for just a bit more.... on Amazon/Newegg. I liked the DP-S1 I had for a while.
The xDuoo X20 or the Sony NW-A45 Walkman? Organization, format play, sound quality, battery life, performance....? I'm looking to replace my Zune HD.

A-45 has one of the strongest battery life out there but output power is relatively weak, pairs best with sensitive earphones. Consider the DP-S1/XDP-30R for sound quality from newegg/amazon too.
Depending on where you are, the Pioneer XDP-30R or Onkyo DP-S1 with two of the same ESS DACs can be found for just a bit more... I haven't used it but on paper looks like an alternative to consider. Currently I see the Onkyo going for $249 on Amazon.
This makes me kinda wish I hadn't gotten my Sony Walkman NW-A35 a couple of months ago and waited for this thing! If only we could predict the future LoL 😁
This has more power via the 3.5mm than my Sony Walkman NW-A35 does, plus the extra 2.5mm balanced output. I have never tried running anything with the 2.5mm balanced option yet, but it's really intriguing me! Supposedly I can ditch my FiiO E11k HP Amp out of my Sony and just run xduoo x20>Nuforce Primo 8/EDC IEM's without the need for a HP Amp?
I'm saving up for some Nuforce Primo 8's here really soon, because I really like my EDC IEM's, and running either of those in balanced mode does sound mighty fun and interesting!
FOBean
I have a pair of Primo8's that I may be interested in selling or trade. I have the boxes and all accessories. dan@letsmerge.com.
FOBean
if you like fun sounding.... are you trying to try out more neutral signature? is that why you are eyeing on primo8? if you are fond of fun sounding signature, primo8 may not be for you.
Quite funny how Massdrop omits the specs. I would never buy a DAP without seeing the specs, especially one with such an old DAC.

The specs weren't there. Massdrop must have put them up after I posted my comment. And now we see the specs, they're too low for me. 120db S/N ratio is a must, as is 0.0007 distortion and at least -100 crosstalk
Mbot
You also can find the spec. of X20 right here. https://www.xtenik.com/xduoo-x20-control-smartphones/
Ooooh, it's amazing how things I didn't even know existed yesterday can become so tempting so quickly.
9018k2m DAC for barely over 200 with a balanced out? That's pretty awesome. Been wanting to try balanced out, and really it's either this or the fiio q1ii to test the waters (q1ii isn't a full blown DAP and has just an ak4454 DAC).
Now do I play the chi-fi lottery or play it safe (who ever thought fiio would be the "safe")? Massdrop is giving me damn near daily struggles.

So very true. Good luck if you can get xduoo customer service to response .Never got a response from them on my x3 either, Buyer Beware. Just realize you are buying this from a company that doesn't respond to there customers ...
I bought the X3 a year and a half ago and it simply wouldn't load or play or anything. Had to send it back, but then got an X-10. I've had it for over a year and like it just fine. Some great sound coming out of it!
Obligatory question; Rockbox(able)?

Seems no.
Good price but the wait is a bit long. I have their X10 and I have no complain. X10 Software have no bells and whistles, but it load super fast. that is more important to me than gapless.
Vloh
Where you from you? Maybe you can try to reach this store, www.hitenik.com, they ship it very fast.
What was the price?

Oh, where to buy cheaper? I only saw that the official price .
steven.0324
Massdrop at $209.
Do you think this will this work well with the Massdrop x Fostex TH-X00? I'm not super experienced with higher end audio equipment, but I have a whole collection of .FLACs on Bandcamp that I never felt like I can truly appreciate.
Taintrunner
it's been 3 weeks you asked this but yeah it will drive them. even a smartphone can drive thx00.
Taintrunner
oh my, di not drive your fostex with your smartphone. That will make the sound produced by those headphones so much undervalued.
Xduoo has released a firmware update for their nano D3 player less than a month from its release so perhaps they are improving their product support.
From a single comment on Head-fi the X20 has a gapless menu item that apparently works. On paper it has an impressive list of features. I'd just like to have some real feedback on the unit before committing my money. I was burned with my Nano D3 purchase so far but I have a bit of hope for more firmware updates.
The only xDuoo X20 Digital Audio Player Review I have found so far, some newly added features for xDuoo are Dual way Bluetooth 4.00, Apt x support, Balanced output jack etc. More details here, https://www.xtenik.com/xduoo-x20-control-smartphones/

Thanks for sharing. I just visited that blog, not very professional article, but got enough information to understand Xduoo x20.

Some me very unimpressed first buyers with gapless performance, it seems.

Try X20, if you are looking for gapless playback
steven.0324
My x10 sound degraded over time. Some others also had the same issue. Unless support / warranty is avsilable, it's still pointless no matter what they offer. I may look into hiby r3 instead.
Is gapless support implemented?
ath2001
One person at head-fi.org received already X20 and he said that YES, gapless is working: jaxz said: " the options menu has gapless playback and after activating it, it seems to be working as intended. No gap at the beginning of songs and gapless looks to be working. Mind you I am using a back up slow microSD card. I need to order a proper class 10 card for fast performance. Even then, the UI is BLOODY FARKING fast. As in the X20 doesn't know the definition of lag. Instantaneous startup of songs and loading library.

My Sony Walkman NW-A35 is lightning fast with regards to it loading the library content! Just a couple of seconds and it's all done loading, even after I added a bunch of new music to it! Oh and it's 100% GAPLESS playback too 😇
I love my new Sony Walkman, I just wish that it had a little bit more power, that's all. But combined with my FiiO E11k HP Amp, it's still a ridiculously small setup!!!
I'm definitely intrigued with this x20 though, so please keep the reviews and advice rolling 😎👍 I'd love to have a DAP that doesn't need a HP Amp to listen to my HQ audio recordings! But no matter how kick-ass the x20 is, if xDuoo doesn't have good customer service to back it up, then they won't be getting my money anytime soon 😉
BTW, what are the benefits of having a "balanced" cable and DAP output? Just more power?
Thanks in advance, Bean
