Hello,

I do also have a XDuoo X3, and I can confirm that Rockbox talks on it.
Nice player, very good audio quality indeed. Only downside I have found
is the relatively limited battery runtime; between 8 and 9 hours before
it needs to be recharged.

Personally I still have an Iriver H340 as my all time favourite, which I
still use despite of the Xduoo. I have replaced the hard drive on the
Iriver with SD cards and a total storage space of about 500 GB, enough
to play all the FLAC albums I want to bring with me. :-)
