It is. To be honest, the iTunes AAC encoder is very good and where it really shines over MP3 is at the lower bitrates. For me, Q91 TrueVBR (~192kbps) seems to be a good balance of sound quality and...

I have done the ABX tests against MP3 using foobar2000 and with most of my music can't hear a difference. I only hear one on the small amount of jazz recordings I have. I settled for iTunes AAC Q91...

FiiO X1 and a 128gb microSD card. I probably wouldn't spend much more money than that either unless you have a set of high end headphones that require more juice.

I'm also curious why we are comparing lossless to MP3. Why not compare it with a more advanced codec such as AAC? AAC today is just as well supported as MP3 is on portable music players.

You'll want to have a lossless backup and that is really what FLAC is intended for. WAV can do the same job though the tagging isn't there as it is with FLAC and the files are significantly larger...

I figured out eventually that Windows Media Player can do it, though you need to install a couple add-ons to make it compatible with Ogg Vorbis or FLAC files.

Sure it may be around 10 hrs if you're playing FLAC files on it. I have the iPhone 4S and my X3 battery lasts just as long as that does.

I have the original as well as an X1. The files I play on it are AAC vbr at 192kbps. I can easily get just as much battery life out of them as I can out of my iPhone playing the same files.

I don't find the firmware in any of the Fiio players difficult to use. Sure, it takes some getting used to, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist.

Isn't this thing $700 new? Sony makes good stuff, but their DRM paranoia craziness drives me away from any of their products.

Fiio Forum

Now that Fiio has entered into the portable music player market, can we get a forum dedicated to that brand?

Thanks.

There is also the Fiio X5 which will accept 2x microSD cards, so 128GB each = 256GB. Outstanding sound quality too.

I notice with the Sandisk firmware, it doesn't report the battery power accurately and shuts off. If I boot back into Rockbox, it works fine.
