Good point, and spot-on of course. There exists a lossless way like this I believe to pre-convert mp3's to a similar volume, *before* copying them to the X3.
Of course, as you say.... they are already 'lossy' in the first place....
The problem is, for lossless files such as FLAC, ReplayGain comes in. No change to the source file, just a Gain adjustment at the time of playback.
This the X3 does not do!!

I'm someone for whom the 80s mix-tape was a magic thing...being given a carefully chosen (and volume matched lol) set of tracks, a key part of the 80s dating scene lol
The gorgeous "analogue" sound of the X3, especially with the hardware bass and treble takes me back *takes a moment*
