Xduoo X20- Control it on your smartphones
2017 is quite a busy year for Fiio and Xduoo. Both of two companies released many new products this year.
Last month, Xduoo just published the xduoo nano D3 music player. Now, they released another total new lossless music player, Xduoo X20.
When we said that X20 is a total new player, because it adds many functions.
Well, without wasting time, let’s go into the detail now.
The main features of Xduoo X20
- Dual way Bluetooth 4.0 , support Aptx ( Finally, we saw Bluetooth on Xduoo products now, and it is great to see that it is dual way, and support Aptx. )
- Support 32bit/384K
- 2.5mm Balanced output ( Balanced to the end ? Yes, That’s Fiio’s slogan. It is also the first time that Xduoo player has balanced output at their music player series)
- Native DSD 256
- USB DAC. Now, you can connect Xduoo X20 to your computer, and use it as an external USB DAC, which support PCM 32 bit/384K and DSD256.
Want to know the best parts ?
Well, you can control X20 on your smart phone. So you don’t need to take out the music player every time when you want to choose the songs.
Download and install the Hiby app to your smartphones, connecting the X20 via Bluetooth, then you can choose search songs, browse song, play the song, adjust song, and manage the files on the phone.

Really interested in this player. With 300mw at 32ohms of balanced output this player should be able to power high impedance headphones like Sennheisers and Hifimans. Would be nice to hear your impressions on these or other Headphones? Also would like to know if this player bypasses the built-in bluetooth chip DAC or does it use the ESS DAC when used as a bluetooth receiver? Can you test using android phone streaming via Spotify connected to X20 via Bluetooth? Thanks. I’m sure other Spotify fans would like to know if this is possible.

Thanks for the comments.
We didn’t test on Sennheisers or Hifimans, but we test it with a domestic brand, Oriolus, it is quite good.
Yes, it will use ESS DAS when you used as bluetooth receiver.
As to the spotify, ok, we will do it later, and updated in in the blog content.

You can go to here to download the X20 User’s guide, but at the moment, there is only English version available at the moment.

The gapless playback seems a little off on transfer between tracks is there any solution to this problem. This was the biggest selling point of me buying but was disappointed by the messy sound you get when going from one track to the next it’s gapless but out of sync.

If x20 wakes up from sleep, it resume the song it played from beginning. The resume play feature should resume from the exact point (+/- sec) where it left off. This happen in firmware 1.15 and 1.18. XDuoo, please fix this on the next firmware.

Ok, we will tell xDuoo company about this issue.

You can try setting-breakpoint play, set it to Location.

I have been contacted by Steven of Xtenik thru pm and used the suggested solution for the resume feature. It works!! I was aware of the “location” in breakpoint setting but not knowing what it does, so I used “track” instead. Track parameter will resume at the beginning of song after x20 wakes up from sleep, not what I want. Thank you Steven of Xtenik for his quick help. User guide would help if all parameters are documented to help user understand the implification.

Can the X20’s battery be serviced if it dies?

You can return it to us for fixing.

My USB port on my X20 has stopped working. Any way for me to access it to have it replaced ?
I need the player functioning asap, so I was hoping for some info on how to dismantle the unit correctly.
