Dear respected customers,

All the existing X-Series DAPs (except X1) can work as DAC for the computer. Each time we release a new official firmware on our website and forum, we provide the DAC drivers (v1.61.0) of the players for customers to install it on Windows computer.
However, although there is no need to install the DAC driver for iOS system users, but it is still required to disable the driver signature verification for Windows 8/10 users before the installation, while the majority users are using computers running Window 8/10 nowadays.
Therefore, in order to improve the user experience, we have made a major upgrade to this Windows DAC driver -- from the ancient v1.61.0 to the shiniest latest v3.34.0, which enables you to install the DAC driver directly without make any extra settings.
Thank Thesycon company for working with us to work out the licensing plan for their latest and greatest!  
>> Click Here for the download address of the new DAC driver
>> Click Herefor the corresponding instruction about the installation
With the brand new UI of the driver, this unique DAC driver can be compatible with FiiO DAPs including X3, X5, X3II, X5II and X7.  For X3, X5, X5II and X7 users, you can just uninstall the old DAC driver and install this new driver to use directly, if you’ve ever installed. But for X3II users, please kindly update your device to FW1.6 and then install the new DAC driver.
>> Click Here for the download address of X3II FW1.6 (X3II FW1.6 or above can be well supported by the new DAC driver)

The following is the cumulative list of main changes from driver version 1.61 to 3.34 (in chronological order, newest to oldest):
* Chg: USB buffer size default changed from Safe (16ms) to Reliable (12 ms)
* New: support for APO registration
* Fix: stop/start connector state polling timer on power down/up
* Fix: BSOD when multiple devices are connected, ASIO is playingand one device is disconnected
* Fix: channel mapping for speaker sound devices

* Chg: report 24bit format also if device supports 32bit
  Windows 7 did not show the 32bit format
* Chg: Windows XP and Windows Vista no longer supported.
  Driver supports Windows 7 and newer.
* New: added DRM handler
* New: 64-bit API DLL included in driver installer,driver API now available to 64-bit applications or services
* Fix: control panel shows invalid ASIO buffer size warning in DSD mode, ASIOBufferSize returned invalid min size for DSD sample rates.
* New: ASIO buffer size selection applies to DSD mode as well.
* New: Automatic ASIO buffer size selection via control panel.Automatic mode is the driver's default.
* New: ASIO buffer size 16K and 32K added in control panel.
* Chg: KS filter internal name includes AS (stream format) ID now.
* Chg: On Windows 7 and newer OS: Driver Setup does not requirethat device is connected during install

>> Click Here for more details about the changelog history

Note:  Rather than the FW1.44beta, the new firmware FW1.6 is upgraded based on the official FW1.4. Compared to the FW1.4, the main changes on the FW1.6 just include 2 points:
1.Be compatible with the new DAC driver and 2.Disabling the OTG function.
So some new functions on the FW1.44beta are not available on FW1.6.

Best Regards,

Any news about the X3 II DAC driver problem I reported (Win 10 x64 won't load the DAC driver reporting error 52 unless boot with driver signature disabled or disable secure boot)?

I've finally fix the problem I was having with fast boot (an old driver was causing the issue) so I re-enable secure boot as it's required by fast boot function and can't use my X3 II anymore as a USB DAC with the new driver.
Where can I find the old driver?

Have you check the issue on a system with last Windows 10 insider build? Maybe Microsoft hase change something since the last stable build. The DAC driver is the only one that give me error 52, I have never had issue with other drivers.

Code 52        Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device.

When try to manually install the driver it says something like "invalid Authenticode(tm) signature"  

Actually when I connect the FiiO X3 II in DAC mode the screen of my FiiO X3 II show the DAC picture for some seconds then the device looks like it is disconnected

How about allowing the next or last track to be played without having to press the power button.  Seems the battery can drain faster since the screen has to turn on with each track skip.

Hi, rosickness, do you mean that dac mode or storage mode? If it is storage mode, you could control the track with the screen lock. System settings> Key-lock settings then choose mode 3.
