Any experience with Fiio X3/5?

Wondering if anyone has any experience with the Fiio X3 or X5 music players? I'm looking for a HQ iPod alternative. I have a pair of Sennheiser HD598 and can definitely hear the difference between some devices.

I only have experience with the X1, and for it's price [$100] I'll take it over any iPod. The new X3 looks like the X1 and have the same UI as well, but it have a more beefed up headphone amp, and have native DSD decoding as well, in case that is important to you. For $200 that might be a sweet spot. There is a review of it on Head-Fi that compares all three.

You might have better luck over at head-fi. Lots of iPod alternatives over in their portable source forum.
