My main gripe is that it takes too long to select when you have too many artists and can't search for individual files.

 

What I think is that Fiio already has the good hardware R&D. Roll out an android based player and see the response.


the poster u quoted is right.

without at least 1 gb of ram and a decent processor,android is a liability and not an asset

I really hope they won't go this way. So far android hasn't been what it promises.

I had no trouble adding thousands of files, however. I added my music alphabetically from my MS library, one letter at a time. The X3 (so far) has sold me in terms of the audio quality. It's amazing.

this is indeed a problem, and the reason why my filenames are as "artist - year - album - discnumber - tracknumber - trackname.flac"

I really hope this'll be fixed.


By the way: using the "<" breaks your message.

Not sure where I told that android is faster given the same hardware is used. All I mentioned was usability.

Thanks in advanced!


I've asked a similar question here http://www.head-fi.org/t/696204/suitable-fiio-x3-charger , but nobody answered ...

It doesn't matter, USB charging is flexible, and for that you can use any charger as long as it is USB.

I don't think I'd like that either. But can't you make your own nested folder structure on the memory itself, such as genre - artist - album, then song files in the album folders? If like me that's that main way you listen, wouldn't that work with the X3's ability to read a user-defined folder structure?

If I remember right the X3 can make use of up to 1.5A so that would be fine as long as you only use one outlet while charging it. If you use both outputs it will just take approx an hour longer from almost empty to full. It will only use what it can so you can't hurt it to use a 2.1A charger. It will just use 1.5A. Always best to use too much than too little.

I have two separate wall chargers, the old 5V 1A one and the new 5V 2.1A.

The problem is, it takes over 6 hours to fully charge (forced shutdown charging) with the new 2.1 A one.

Eh if Fiio could fix the issues with long tracks (>30m) with regards to memory play and make their seek more useful for longer tracks (currently, it takes -forever- to seek anything over a few minutes in length) I'd be perfectly satisfied.  If I wanted an all-in-one solution I'd dig up a Zune, iPod Touch or Sony NWZ-series player or just rely on my Note 2.
