So, you can image that any MP3/Music player which has not a PC program to help to manage the sound track, it has to manage by itself, so the problem is , how can a MP3 can compete with a PC/MAC , and
not to talk even the Mac/Pc take quite long time to convert the song.
Now the sound track in a cue files can not be regards as an individual song track, not sure whether we can make it work in the future, very sorry for that , but it is the fact that even a 600Mhz Soc is limited.
I have never used an ipod.
On Mac, there is an app called XLD, which we can convert music files quite conveniently.
There is also an app called Tag, which we can edit the metadata of the file easily.
One advantage for CUE sheets, I guess is that it allows tags for WAV files?
I haven't test it before, but is there any difference on SQ with different music format? Say, is wav really sound better than flac on X3? If there is no difference, I will just convert everything into flac.
