Your likely writing the fw to somewhere else. Turn off the unit. Hold the up button constantly while connecting it to the computer until you here the tada and then release the button. If you can see it in my computer, you didn't do it right and try again. Open the installer. Once the installer finds the player, it will become visible in my computer. Just quick format it there and then initiate the update. Check the erase data box for kicks to see if it takes.    If you...
Driver size has something to do with it as well. K10 has 2 woofers, the Layla 4 and they clearly take up more space. No doubt Freqphase will certainly affect the packaging as well. I think the Angie is more similar in driver size and count. I'm sure it will continue to be a bit larger than the K10.
I never understood that sort of thinking. If something is genuinely great, it will continue to be so regardless of whatever comes along.

agreed. It's not a giant killer but sonically, there's nothing I'd currently rather have under $600 and the footprint just makes it that much better.
It's personal but when I listened to the X5 with a variety of phones it sounded like that to me along with an oddly emphasized high end. It was an early unit with original FW so things may have changed and little things tend to get amplified with me. Contrasts with top kit tends to do that as well. I've heard it's good as a line and dig out but haven't listened that way.   Here's an exchange I had at the time.  thericochet   offline 118 Posts....
Never had an issue with mine when I had it. Just a really nice player for the price.
