The amp of the X3 could be better but to my ears the Fiio X3 with iBasso T5 as amp, this is so close to my desktop setup that I don't need better and wonder if I can imagine it.

Alright gentlemen, its my turn. I've been trying to fix the 64 gb situation since Tuesday. It has been formatted to FAT32, cluster size changed to 32k and yet, half the files, seemingly at random, will not play, garnering a "File Not Found" error message. There are plenty however, that will work, so its not an all-or-nothing situation.
The card works fine in my other Micro SD devices.
The m4a problem was fixed in one of the recent firmwares. Just upgrade to the latest. You may need to clear out the database by removing the card and updating the library. Then you can put the card back in and update it again to pick up the contents of the card.
There is/was no 64GB card problem. There was a number of directories problem....
Android is a good platform for smartphone and tablet but not for DAP. Dual-Core processor and 1GB Ram are the minimum requirement IMO.
My F805 was lag as hell and I can't really enjoy the music,even the sound quality is fantastic.
The system stability and implementation are the #1 priority before I consider to buy any DAP.
You may suggest iPod Classic is better than anything for fulfilling this condition but I think X3 is enough because I don't want to pay any additional cost to external DAC or amp , I just want a all-in-one DAP for my daily use.
How do I get the player to list my songs (within an album) by tagged song name rather than the entire filename?
I just got my X3, since my iPod Classic died -- all of my music is in apple lossless .m4a format, created with dbpoweramp not iTunes. On the X3 screen, within the album, what I see is just the beginning of the long track name, which when one song is selected slowwwwwwly scrolls to the right -- e.g. when I select the album Transit of Venus, the song list is "Three Days Grace - 20" over and over, because the file names are e.g. "Three Days Grace - 2012 10 02 - Transit of Venus - 01 - Sign of the Times.m4a". These songs are correctly tagged, and show up in iTunes or other apple-lossless-compatible players with their song names.
Thanks (and apologies if this has been answered already, please point me to it, my searches were unavailing)
True, but that only affected you if you didn't use the recommended size as determined by your good self - that was a nice piece of detective work BTW 8^). AFAIK that won't be fixed since it is kind of (stretching things a bit) in spec.
As far as indexing goes, I think I'd you temporarily put your idle power off to something big it will work. Either that or do it a couple times.

I'm just curious as to why anyone would bother buying and using a DAP such as the X3 designed for hi-rez lossless files with low bitrate lossy audio files? I don't mean to start anything it's just that I don't see the X3 being any advantage, particularily sound quality wise over any normal device designed to be used with low bitrate lossy files. Am I missing something?
