FiiO X3 2nd Gen. It is that time of year and I am looking for something cool for my son. I dived into the IPod thing big time back when the 2nd generation Nano was cutting edge and expensive. The 8G model was $$$ and I splurged on it for myself. Ripped everything I could get my hands on. A couple of years later, I found "obsolete" 4G versions at Apple for a song and gave them to my kids. Great products. All three are still kicking and used almost daily. Time warp to this evening. I was wondering what replaced the earlier IPods: Well built and designed for music. File storage. Quality sound output. I was surprised to see the niche products available. Very nice. Which brings me to the FiiO X3ii. Is it really what is it is said to be? Anyone have any experience with this product? I am intrigued. It looks to have the capabilities of a music server from several years back. I looked into those and even considered building one on a bare bones PC chassis. Now, it looks like someone finally built what I have been looking for. My son has a massive CD collection. CD's are his thing kind of like vinyl is to many of us. Hell, CD's are just about as vintage to his generation as vinyl. With this new device, he could rip again all those CD's to high quality samples and begin a new library of killer recordings. Of course, we will all do the same, share, and eventually have a similar playback device. Kind of like the IPod craze all over again, but bigger and better. He carries a very powerful ThinkPad and has a high resolution external DAC, so digitizing vinyl is a possibility too. His turntable is not very good. We will need to work on that. Opinions? Thanks.
