Thanks.

 

dcfac73,

 

There are a few things to know about using favourites (note the Canadian/British spelling the player uses?  That's right...we love our 'U's).

 

Firstly, it's not so easy to do within the player.  It takes a good deal of time, and typically it's a good idea to navigate your player twice - once to decide on what you'd like to add, and second to add the files.  I only suggest this because, depending on file names, it can take a while to figure out which track is which.  If you're very familiar with your albums, however, this isn't an issue.

 

Also, as far as I know, you can only have one list at a time.

 

List Creation Procedure:

 

1) To create a playlist, you have to go into your resource manager > into the album folder > move down/up through the tracks in that album > once you've found a track you'd like to add press the RIGHT navigation button and select 'Add to Favourites' (Note that the default position is 'Delete File', so be careful of that.)

 

2) Continue doing that with every track that you would like in your favourite list.

 

3) Once you've made all of your choices hit the LEFT button to navigate back to the menu options and select 'Music'.  The very last option in the music menu is 'Favourite'. Enter that and you'll be able to play from your list.

 

 

NOTE: The favourite list you've created will disappear if you ever hit a 'reset', thus you will have to create it all again from scratch.

 

 

I don't know if there's a way to create a playlist externally and add it to the player's onboard memory - so I'll leave that to someone else, if it's at all possible.  The favourite list is handy, but as you can only have one at a time it's not the best solution out there.

 

I also find that the 'random' play setting to not be very good - used this with a Favourite List once and it played some tracks multiple times before moving on.  Not idea.

 

 

That's all I can contribute to the subject, I'll leave any advanced techniques to the experts here :)

 

Happy listening,

Thanks Gignac I'll give it a go. Do you know if there's a way to add tracks by album to the playlist?

Having a cue is better than nothing.

Has anyone ever had any problems with the buttons on their Studio going 'soft' or sinking into the casing a touch? My volume/menu down button has become really soft to press, this is on my 2nd edition, the 3rd Anv is still very firm to press. Are there some screws under the buttons or pad that may of come loose? I remember someone was opening theirs up quite often, maybe they've know of a solution It's still working but I would like to fix this as it seems to be getting worse

Are you saying the Studio V supports cue files? If so, how does it work?

post #891 of 1160

No. Cue as in a line up like waiting in a cue.

I was under the impression when my 3rd Anv started doing this that it was the Li-ion battery bloating. Not sure if that is the case with yours, but Jack told me to firmly press and hold the affected buttons to help correctly space the actuation again. The problem gradually went away for me with this technique.

My button hasn't become hard to press, it's no longer clicking as it should and just 'soft pressing' like the sensor has worn out. I thought maybe the board had come away from the front panel slightly at first however it appears not the case. Instead of pressing it and having a nice 'click' noise it pushes in silently and has sunken into the casing a little. It's gradually become worse over time.

I'm guessing it's the same casing, it changes colour a little depending on the angle and lighting. If you have any concerns contact jack via email.
post #897 of 1160

Yep. Although I more so see it as a silver color with a tinge of gold to it.

I finally got around to trying the latest FW on my Anv 3. 

http://www.hisoundaudio.com/Uploadfiles/20131117175558560.rar

 

I like it. I think it's the best sounding of the bunch. You lose the hold to scroll function but other than that, I don't see any issues. Installed the way I like it best with the 2011 FW, I think it maintains all the detail with a bit more color and less etch. The installer supplied only works with XP (Ithink) so you'll have to copy the old installer into the folder for W7. For best sounding result, start the normal install procedure. When recognized after opening the updater, do a quick (not slow) format at 4096 allocation size before starting the updater. Don't check any of the updater boxes. (fromat and erase) Once ready and started, disable BTN sound in the settings menu. The difference isn't huge from this same type of previous install but enough for me to forget about the scrolling.

Interesting, I did not see that this had come out. Does it help the player remember the last song played yet?

 

Edit: I remember now, it is the 2013-01-15 firmware. So, with this firmware you cannot scroll up or down by holding the center key?
