Sorry not now because the firmware still not the final version , and the Soc will working in different speed ( up to 600MHz) so I can't answer your question now

Already confirmed X3 support 192k/24bit ALAC music

post #3033 of 3613

Guess that's good news for the apple-heads ;).

Yes, now support APE/FLAC/WAV/WMA/ALAC , all up to 192K/24B, is X3 will be the first DAP which support so many kind of Lossless 192/24 music in the world?

post #3035 of 3613

now we are working in some very difficult part of the firmware, whether we can make it support APE in extra high and insane model.

Sounds like it :). Will the battery drain severely on APE? I tend to hear APE is quite brutal during conversion.

? What do you mean in extra high and insane model?

post #3038 of 3613

APE format includes 5 different model, fast, normal, high, extra high, insane, the insane can compress the music file to the smallest size, but it need the player very high speed so it can extract the file and play.

 

and FLAC includes 8 different compress model. and so far, none of the DAP can support all the APE format, maybe next time we need a dual core 2GHZ Soc and 2G ram to support it. lol

post #3039 of 3613

I say don't bother with APE.....who uses that anymore? FLAC and ALAC support are all good. Any time I've come across APE files, the first thing I do is convert them to FLAC.

That would be interesting if you could achieve it. It would be a nice selling point regarding lossless and more space. But the question would be how much would that impact battery life?

our target is 15 hours

post #3042 of 3613

Not bad at all :).

yea ALAC and FLAC is more than enough, I never store my files with ape

It's still a nice feature to have. I mean if it really saved enough space and still had similar battery life I'd be likely to convert my files on the device (not my actual files) to APE to benefit from the saved space. Although I agree with you I don't see it as a requirement at all. But it shows you their dedication and support as a whole.

post #3045 of 3613

Now I wonder how much of a difference in battery life there would be between an X3 loaded with 16/44.1 FLAC, and one loaded with 320k MP3. I for one don't have any hi-res files, and don't plan to.....16/44.1 is just fine, IMO.  But I don't have all my music in FLAC, either.....a fair amount of it is high-bitrate MP3.
