I sure hope custom themes will still be possible, because that look is more like turning a duck into a clown, rather than a swan...
I don't really like the new look, sure, the current UI isn't perfect, but I like its simplicity. IMHO, something with big flashy pictures belongs on touchscreen devices, not a button operated player like the X3. I hope it will be possible to switch between old and new menu modes.
Tbh, UI is the last thing I care about, as long as basic functionality is solid. If they fix the mp3 decoder and resume for long tracks, I'll be a happy with any duck-, clown- or swan-UI they come up with.
Hi guys, from what I've been reading, the X3 sometimes doesn't play nice with MP3 files. Wanted to ask opinions on what is the best format to rip CD's from to put on the X3?
Maybe just copy them over in WAV files to insure the best bit-bit copies?
Also, if anyone has recommendation for how they burn CD's from a Mac for the X3, I'd definitely appreciate the information. Is iTunes with "Apple Lossless" OK?
Apple lossless is fine, but so is high-bitrate AAC if you want to save space. Even transcoding MP3 to high-bitrate AAC will improve playback quality with the current firmware.
