 5. Fixed issue where connecting / disconnecting headphones / line-out / etc. during playback may cause the X5 to hang.

 

Nice, glad to see this fixed; faced this frequently during the world tour

Now the X5 DAC is working fine.

 

I left it in to charge and when I returned I was able to listen to full songs again.

The translation into German for EQ off is wrong. Instead "EQSchließen" it would be better to say "EQ Aus".

My first impression about the sound quality with the firmware 2.2 is not really good. The sound is not open, the stage is smaller, the highs are stressful. I switch back to fw2.0


done - fw2.0 - and the sound is how i like it. There must something went wrong. I'll try it later again.

I know it's no excuse - because I'd also like to see Fiio fix the 5800 limit - but I was fascinated with your comment.  On my unit:

 - all tracks in FLAC

 - utilising 1 x 128Gb micro SD + 1 x 1/2 full 64 Gb micro SD

 - 5066 tracks, 388 albums (quite a few are double albums too)

 - total playing time (all tracks) = 356 hours

 

Even if I listened to music 12 hours of every day (and personally I can't see anybody really doing that on holiday) - I'd have to be away an entire month to listen to every track.

 

And I still have ~ 700 tracks to get to the limit (ie another 50-60 full albums, and approx 50 further hours of playing time).

 

I understand the desire to get Fiio to fix this - but sometimes I find it hard to fathom the 'need' of some people.

 

I guess we're all different :)

This is so simple I don't see how you miss it.

The idea is not to LISTEN to it ALL, the idea is to have it all to choose from.

(and in my case play it all randomly)

I too have 128 GB and 64 GB cards in mine and I am well passed the 5800 limit.

I keep a spare 128 at the ready for when this limit is raised.

Oh, don't worry - I get it.  I just wanted to put it in perspective.  One or two still make a huge fuss over it, and I agree it should be fixed.  I just find it slightly overkill personally.  I've had the X5 some considerable time now, and there are still a large number of  albums on it that I haven't played yet, and probably won't get to it for some considerable time yet.

 

The idea of we must have it otherwise I won't have enough to listen to when I'm away for X days just strikes me as slightly ludicrous.

 

I also wonder whether with the huge collections of music some people have - if they have actually listened to all the music they have more than once (or even once) .........

 

Just my musings.  YMMV ;)

Try browsing to the actual playlist file in folder view and opening it. 

 

Hello Brooko,

 

Thank you for your suggestion! Yes, I had done this prior to posting my question and it didn't work, either. But, then, I hadn't tried CH23's suggestion...

Must become
TF1:/music/artist/album/track.flac

Hi CH23,

 

Thanks as well for your response! I just tried this and it did not work for me.

 

For Brooko, CH23, or anyone reading this, here's how I create a playlist, let me know if I'm doing something wrong:

 

-I right-click on the folder that I'm going to create the playlist in, either the TF1 or TF2 (I created playlists on both), to create a new text document.

-Once the text document window is open, I go and copy the address of the files as path and paste them on the text document, removing the quotes and changing the path letters to TF1 or TF2, depending on where the original file is located (is the latter correct?).

-I go to "Save As" and name the playlist adding the file extension .m3u and save.

 

I know there's playlist editor software. Should I try that instead? In the last two hours I have tried different files and saving them in different ways, but the X5 can't find the files, either in folder view or playlist view.

 

See pic below for the text document window. Is there anything wrong here?:

 

 

Thank you in advance!

Somewhat neutral about the DB file limit since you can easily cram more files on Fiio's DAPs and use file browsing. And I'm an album guy - no shuffling my entire library here. Biggest annoyance is I just reformatted and organized my uSD cards so A-M is on TF1 and N-Z is on TF2 so I can easily locate my tunes.

I don't think you really "get" it (because you keep listing the same situations... i.e. nobody has time to listen to every album, I won't have enough material, etc.)

I don't think it's "overkill" either. I am one who listens to the whole library in SHUFFLE mode. Yes, I load my 7000+ songs (AK100 MK2 at the moment), and shuffle through them. I like variety. Could I listen via folder album per album on the X5? Of course, but I'm not like that when I'm at work. At work it's shuffle and work through the day.

 

Oh, and I have listened to all my CDs because, I still use my car's CD player... yeah I know... shocking... who does that anymore?!? Well... me! :-p

 

At least I read a few weeks ago that with the playlists you could actually shuffle through the whole library since you could list both cards... but, I don't want to buy an X5 just to try that (I don't know if that really works)!!! Can anyone else test that and see if it works?

 

 

Thanks.

 

 

P.S. I noticed that I have a bunch of X5 products here (HS9, HS11, HS7, and stickers) and no player!!! LOL something must be wrong with me!

I think it needs the #EXTM3U tag at the beginning. Here is an excerpt from one of my playlists generated by MediaMonkey using the extended M3U format and absolute paths (i.e. doesn't require A:\ or TF1:\)

Hmm...  the X1 is getting stickers.  In an infantile reaction, or a distant memory of love for stickers as a child, I want stickers for the X5 now.  Perhaps as I grew older I just told myself stickers were childish, and a love for them just remained hidden inside me.  Yes, I want these stickers.  Perhaps stickers of an eye to go on the wheel.

Hi Loquah,

 

So, I re-installed Media Monkey just to do this. Sorry if this sounds ignorant/clueless, but how can one generate automatically extended m3u formats on MM? (I did google how to do it, but I couldn't find it.) When I created the playlist, I was able to save it only as a simple m3u.

 

Since I couldn't generate extended m3u playlists on MM, I actually typed in the extended formulas like in your example above (with the specs for the songs on my playlist, of course) to see if that would work. It finally was able to get to the song listing in folder view, but when I selected each song, it said "File not found."

 

I think I'm going to give up at this point and wait until FiiO solves the issue (though I think it is me that's doing something wrong, as it seems to work for the rest of you, right?)...  

 

Thank you all for your help!
