FiiO Electronics raised the bar once more when it comes to budget hifi music players. I thought that FiiO X3 is already super affordable for the performance it delivers but I was wrong. The portable amplifier manufacturer giant is set to release another budget audiophile grade powerful music player for the masses this September. It is a very bold aggressive innovative move by FiiO to bring down the price of this type of quality parts to an unprecedented price of USD 100 only!
