Cue files and gapless playback are not correlated.
What I meant is you can have gapless playback by joining all song files of an album to one file. Then it's by default gapless ...
... but you can't navigate through the album song structure anymore.
Though with a cue file embedded in the album file the information where a song begins and ends would be available again and software could use this information to display the album structure and you could access the single songs inside the joined file again.
If this could happen in the normal folder structure it would be even more wonderful.
Perhaps it were enough to have an independent cue file in the same folder as the album file.
Currently you can use independent cue files with the Hifiman, but the resulting song structure is just one very long list over all songs for which cue files exist and it shows up only via the CUE lists menu entry and not via the SD card menu entry in the folder structure where the album file resides.
Whew, ... maybe my English isn't good enough to explain this intelligibly.
