Fiio actually explains their thinking behind the drop in volume with the EQ someplace. Maybe on their website?

This is just a thought as I haven't tried it out myself...

First use the X5 as a DAC and get the sound you want by tweaking the EQ in Foobar.

Then convert with the equaliser enabled in DSP with your preferred EQ settings applied.

Now you should have both the original and an EQ'd copy.

I have what most people might consider a stupid question.  Bare in mind I can't see the screen.

I finally decided to try selecting an album from the catagory/album setting.  Now, I can't seem to leave that album for another.  I hit the top right button to go up one level with no result, did the 10-second forced shut-down and even poked the reset hole.

What am I missing?

May I ask why you are unable to view the screen? Do you have a vision impairment, or is it because the player is in a pocket or a case? I would find it quite difficult to do what you are trying to do without first extracting the player from my pocket first, which is what I do one hundred percent of the time. For me this is not an issue as I almost always exclusively listen to an album file in it's entirety before choosing another one and therefore only have to endure the inconvenience of removing the player from my pocket occasionally.

 

Someone else may have had more luck doing what you ask, but i think, if I'm not mistaken, you would require two to three pushes of the upper right X-cross buttons to get back to your file browser and even then you would need to scroll to the next album and then make another series of button pushes to actually get that file to start playing. It's an awful lot to expect without being able to view the screen. If I am off base here, or am misunderstanding your request in any way,someone please correct me.

it is not possible without using the screen... 

 

just use the player to change manually. 

 

You also cannot go from a folder to another, when you are in folder browsing, ... you can catch my drift...

Blind guy.  I should be able at least, to remember the number of button pushes to get around the various functions of any non-touchscreen player.

I just need to know physically, how to get out of the present album and spin the wheel or the bottom buttons to another album folder.  Most people think that they can't do something without looking; therefore, "You can't do something," is assumed.

Sorry for the rant.

One big reason for buying the X5 was it's buttons and lack of touchscreen. 

So I'll take any advise offered with much gratitude.

Thanks.

I'm afraid I don't get your drift,Scarey.  Since this isn't a touchscreen, you can do anything without it.  I don't understand 'manually'.  Could you please elucidate further?

Thanks for your time.

UELong: I only use Folders to listen to music, and simply move from folder to folder to accomplish that.  But I just tried using Album, and once I got a song playing on an album, it took two clicks of the right upper button to get back to the album menu, where I could scroll to the next album.  

 

I wonder if you hit the button that puts you in a different view, where you see the song you are playing plus the song before it and the song after it.  Every time I mistakenly get there I have to fumble around to get off that screen.  

 

By the way, does your screen name, UELong, have anything to do with the Kingfish, or is it in reference to Ultimate Ears?  :wink_face:

What olddude said is spot on as usual. The only catch is that once you press the top right button to go back, you can't return to the basic album again. What I mean by that is if you're listening to Album X and you press "back" you will see the listing of the tracks on Album X. Pressing back again will take you to the list of all albums if you used Album view in the first place. The issue is that if you pressed the back button previously wither deliberately or accidentally, or if the player has switched off since you started listening to that album then the back button will take you to a different place because the player doesn't default back to the the now playing screen like you might expect. If the player has switched off, the back button will now take you to the "Now Playing" icon in the main menu. If the back button was pressed, but nothing was selected then the player seems to stay on whichever screen it was at (e.g. album track listing if you only pressed the back button once).

 

If you're using the lock so you know when the back button has been pressed then you should be OK, but if the player has switched off you will need to access the category menu again via the main menu (starting at the now playing icon)

Thanks alot.  It's partly because I discovered Head-Fi while deciding to by some TF10s and partly because I'm a history and political junky;  as refering to Huey Long.

Your advice seems to jibe with my dificulties.  Could you tell me the path to folders knowing that I'm not seeing the screen?  My son can help me find it as long as I know where to look.  I'll try using folders instead.

I had to connect X5 to my computer to initiate a library autoscan to put me back to 'now playing' mode.

Thanks:

Kevin

Thanks as well, Laugua.  You both have been very clear with your explanations.  I'll play with it after and post results tomorrow.
