Didn't I read ClieOs saying that gapless was an option in the settings that needed to be turned on to work?

Yes, I believe he did say that. -HK sends

I did. I don't actually have any gapless album so I didn't test the function during the review. But I did just find some loop-back files (here) that are meant to test gapless and they didn't work at all.

Nice to hear from you, Debbie Downer...

Never a great idea to put too much weight on just one person's opinion...it's exactly that... One person. ...Opinion. Let's not forget up till now we had one other opinion that was way in the other direction. Probably the reality of the SQ is somewhere in the middle. And each user will have their own opinion based on their needs, preferences and expectations. 

 

As far as gapless, I am sure James will weigh in. I remember it being supported? Perhaps a fix, firmware update or such will fix things up. 

 

Let's not have everyone get their panties in a twist just yet!

Exactly. One man's 'subtle' SQ difference might be huge for another.

Gapless is a SEROUS issue for me. We need clarification from James asap.

Exactly. I find mostly all differences between decent equipment to be subtle. It takes time...days or more with any piece of gear to truly recognize strengths and weaknesses. But subtle positive differences are often worth it me.

Anyone who is expecting a "massive" upgrade from ANY piece of equipment (X3 included) is setting themselves up for serious disappointment. . (yes someone just used that term a few posts back)

Got to wait until the lat week of July. That sucks. Might as well wait longer and get the x5.

I've signed up for one but it seems payment is taken now. Got to be better than my clip+ which is showing several signs of old age! It was this or the colorfly C3 so I hope I made the right choice. UI and design-wise at least it seems a no-brainer.

He's said before it supports gapless playback and you can turn it on and off.

Understood, but apparently neither ClieOS nor pekingduck can get it to work. 

 

I, for one, would like more details.  Is the gapless not working only with mp3 files, or is there a problem with FLAC files as well? 

post #1619 of 17168

One more question: Is gapless supported ONLY with cue sheets, or is it supported natively?

I did turn it on wink.gif
