Agree, but here we are with a high end DAP that cuts off the beginning of the track when you select a new one... however not when you skip to next track. Then you hear the current track chopped a couple of times and the the last roughly five seconds of it, and THEN the next track will play - gapless.
Embedded cover art in FLAC files aren't read when tag browsing, but if I use folder browsing I get album art anyway. Album tag is useless if you have compilation albums. I have a 6CD called "100 Love Songs". Guess how many times the album shows up as a separate album with more than ninety artists? Ninety-something times. And since numeric titles are listed before alphabetical ones, album tag browsing is out of the question with that album on the SD card.
Yes hifiman can definitely use some help in their firmware updates. I can't see why the sort/group by album artist (for compilations/VA albums) and the chopping(1.081) or interrupted(1.082) first seconds issue had lingered for so long when ibasso can fix the album artist thing in mere days....
