Anyone have/use a Fiio X7 II?

(1/6) > >>

Rob D.:
Thinking about getting this or the Astell&Kern SR15 for the same money. If anyone out there has any personal experience with these or any of the Onkyo DAPs, I'd love to hear it.

If you're considering the SR15: https://tmraudio.com/personal-audio/portable-music-players/astell-kern-a-norma-sr15-portable-music-player-64gb/

The Pioneer XDP-30R. (Onkyo cousin) has dropped in price significantly.  ($160 on Amazon)
Dual-DACs. (Sabre)
Upsampling
Balanced output line-out / standard headphone out (not both at once)
Space for very large capacity SD cards
32/192
DSD256
WAV, FLAC, MP3,...
Tidal
BT /Wi-Fi   (no apt-x on BT)

Not too shabby driving a pair of Senn HD-580s kicked back in my chair at the office today

My jogging Fiio is the tiny M3 and it drives a set of earbuds well, but I haven't played with an X7 II.
I've heard that it is stellar.

Good grief the learning curve going from iTunes to a Hi-Res DAP is huge! The manual for this device is helpful but at the same time, still lacking a lot. I think the biggest difference I've noticed (unless I'm wrong?) is that most of the control is on the device itself, rather than the PC/MAC sync'ing the device (Fiio X7 doesn't even do that).

Just picked up a $179 30r from B&H, checks all the boxes, has really nice specs. We’ll see how she sounds. Medium hopes. The storage is nuts. Two 256 slots plus the 16 onboard.

If this isn’t a leap from my ct10 the SR15 is next, couldn’t resist a try of the Pioneer for that price.

I really do like the ct10 good not great and a good price.
