But then again, I had it on shuffle all songs so I wouldn't expect it to be idle and sleep or shut down.

I'm using the 128 GB card which works fine except on shuffle. Shuffle plays one album (out of about 400) about 50% of the time and plays 5 albums about 80% of the time. Anyone have this problem? It may not be related to the new 128 card but I didn't have it before.
This was a false alarm. On my second attempt, when I had more time, it worked perfectly.
Other than the well-documented "low volume bug" the only issue I have is it isn't possible to do shuffle play on an artist, AFAICT, only an individual album. OTOH, before the huge improvements in the db handling in this beta, it wasn't possible for me to shuffle anything except a folder using "Browse Files". At least now I can shuffle by genre (which was the thing I wanted most). The only problem now is, I can see how bad my genre tags are!
This is a huge step forward. Well done to Fiio! Even the "cartoonish interface" (not my words) isn't as annoying as I thought it would be (not annoying at all, really). I think I still prefer a text-based one, but I can definitely live with this one.
Nice and great working for a beta firmware, GUI looks nice, slightly faster, gapless works for me now, EQ added.
But I miss only one thing, please tell how I can disable the cover view, with 2.10 I disabled this stuff, I don't want to see covers, the text with artist title is more than enough. Thanks
I think he is saying that the shuffle isn't as random as it should be. I haven't played with shuffle much yet, but I found something similar. The first three tracks all came from the same album, then I got one from a second album, then one from the first again, then one from the second again.
OK I'm trying the volume modded version with FLAC only. It seems a little more treble-y with a tighter low end and better separation. I'd like confirmation though that this isn't just expectation bias.
Navigation is snappier. Menu appearance change is neutral to me, but the font thickness and color when playing songs should be adjusted to look less amatuer. I've got the black theme but I've got gold thin letters telling me track info.
Anyway, nice to see Fiio not abandon us X3 owners.
I'm not having this problem with either on my 128 GB cards. I use shuffle all when I use my X3 and it does appear random enough to me.
I'm going to say I love everything about the new U.I. Well. Almost everything.
-Low volume (looks like I'm downloading that 120 volume mod!)
-During playback, browsing or performing any other function is very tedious due to I think maybe hardware limitations?
-Playback text is in an odd placement...
You could just use the normal firmware tools provided for unpacking the old firmware and just change the "max_vol" parameter in default.ini to something like 120 instead of the normal 60. Though 120 might be a bit over the top since for what i have gathered is that the "volume drop" is is something like 20 units so since the old max volume was 60 you could just bump it up to 80 and have everything like it was before.
The beta does play DSD64!
