I can confirm that with playlists you can bypass the 5800 limit. I created a playlist with a little over 8000 songs. Sure it takes like 3-5 minutes to load initially and it may look like it is frozen, but if you don't have the screen timeout on you it will eventually load the playlist and all the songs.

 

On the bright side if you turn off the X5 and turn it back on it will instantly load the playlist and it won't take the 3-5 minutes this time around.

 

Another note.... it appears that the X5 indexes songs in alphabetical order so only A-M gets indexed for me until the 5800 limit is reached. So I created another much faster playlist of the 2000+ songs that didn't get indexed.

 

While not an ideal solution its great until it is fully solved. Now I can listen to songs that are not indexed.

And here I am still messing around with the two 16 gig cards I had laying around when I got my X5.

For such a small outfit, Fiio is taking every other dap manufacturer to the wood shed as far as customer service/communications goes...well done, Fiio. For those of you unfamiliar with American English idioms, to be taken to the wood shed means to have your tookus (the thing you sit on) severely beaten.

The x5 is my fifth Fiio product. Never had a problem with any of them. Couldn't be happier with the x5.

My father used to say, "I don't have any problems - only opportunities."  

 

And I like to say, "Contentment is a choice made independent of circumstances." 

 

But I struggle to embrace these thoughts.

 

I'm happy for you, though!

 

:D

I'd never heard of them. I tried searching their lyrics, but couldn't make a connection to my quotes.  :o

The coax out on Fiio X5 is only coaxial or also optical?

I was referring to your avatar picture.  It looks like the cover for their latest album.  Looks like they got it from somewhere else...

Oh!

 

This is way off-topic, but...

 

My avatar is the 6G5 "Magic Eye" tuning tube in my 1937 Silvertone 4569 Superheterodyne Radio (with 3 AM and shortwave bands):

Silvertone4569-TuningEye-s175.jpg

 

As you adjust the tuning knob, the stronger the signal, the more bright green phosphorous you will see fluorescing in the "Magic Eye."  The two bright-green areas move toward 6 o'clock, in unison, as the signal gets stronger.

 

 

Not visible in the photo, the mono speaker does not have a stationary permanent magnet and moving coil. Instead, it has two coils. Both coils act as electromagnets. One coil is stationary and one moves with the cone. Both are modulated - 180 degrees out of phase - either repelling each other or attracting each other - moving the coil that's attached to the cone.  The sound is spectacular for a single driver - warm, rich, and remarkably detailed. But the highs are rolled off.  

 

77 years old and counting - never restored other than blowing out the dust and cleaning the inside of the glass.  It's all original, except for the 6G5 tube, but I have the original - It's still working, but just isn't as pretty as the new tube.

 

It can still tune broadcasts from all over the world.

 

:D

 

Mike

I've been wondering about the origins and meaning of that avatar. I love the uber-art deco style of the display panel on the radio - it's beautiful!

Quite simply a work of art! 77 years ago things were made with care and attention, and they were built to last.

I wish I could hear it! I love the innovation of the coils!
