Yep, thats the biggest issue at the moment. They said they were working on it.

 

50% of the songs on my X3 are in AAC format so only manual browse allows me to use them at the moment.

 

Some UI nit picks that I can't forget(I was a touchscreen DAP user for 5+ years) are really the biggest downers for me.

 

Anyway, I'll be getting the Colorfly C4 next month, so I can compare some UI and what not. (although the C4 is going to be stacked with the X5)

Thanks, James. I've been following this thread for some time so I was confident that you had it in hand. Thank you so much for the confirmation,though. Always good to have 8^)

The only thing that I'm missing from a touch based UI is the ability to scroll through long lists quickly. Getting the tags fix will pretty much fix that for me since the categories will work better. Not perfect, but totally acceptable for me. Of course, if it had a touch interface I would be very happy, but then it would have cost a whole lot more or had some other compromise. I'm very happy with what I got at the price point I got it at.
Of course, I'm pretty certain that it'll act like a gateway drug and I'll be getting an X5 or even a Colorfly myself eventually. Buying that E7 for my Galaxy S3 was the start of an expensive, but very enjoyable, spiral....

maybe a 5 inch touch screen them it will be more easy to choose one song from the long long list, lol, L3000.gif

 

anyway, we have not plan to develop any DAP which based on touch screen design.

I agree, the only issue I actually have is

 

inability to scroll long lists quickly(screen size won't change this)

 

and how the X3 orders things based on track number. This is great for categories view, but makes 'play all' useless. 

 

Anyway, most audiophile DAP's have UI nitpicks, you will rarely find an audiophile DAP without UI usability issues. Especially in 2013 when touch interfaces designed by companies worth hundreds of billions of dollars are the 'norm' of expectancy.

Hoping I will get mine from B&H before my next long trip.

 

They aren't even on the ship list yet unfortunately.

Mine is out for delivery right now...eBay order.  Woohoo.  Cannot wait to have just one device for when I'm out and about.  Sick of carrying an iPod Touch and an Amp (first world problems).  Hopefully this solves that issue and it sounds like it will.

post #3298 of 17125
good news! which ebay seller did you order from?

I moved away from a stack for the same reason, with DAPs now coming with high current amps, having two boxes on a plane just doesn't make sense, and I doubt if I could tell the difference in that noisy environment.

digital.852 - all are around 250 so I found the guy with the fastest shipping.  :)  I ordered on 7/29 and it'll be here today.  That's damn fast from China.

 

As for getting rid of a stack...if this thing sounds like or than my iPod out of an e07k (which is what I currently use), then it's a win.  And from all indications, it does.  So should be golden this evening when I get home from work.
