Guys,

 

Got my X5 today, was able to grab one of three available from Focus Camera yesterday. Anyways, I've encountered a fairly big problem in that 24/88 FLAC files play with a ton of static. Even after I pause playback and try navigating the menus, I hear mechancial noise and static in the earphones with every button push. It stays noisy until I go and play a non 24/88 FLAC file. Has anyone else seen this? Any help is appreciated, I like what I see so far. I am using Shure SE846 earphones and tried the 1.20 and 1.22 Beta firmwares and have the same FLAC issue.

 

Thanks,

 

Y2J

Thats a fairly big problem for me also as I have hundreds of sacd albums ripped to  24/88/176 flac  .It would be nice to know if fiio are looking into this and if they intend to support 24/88/176 flac.

 

Just got mine in as well! Really liking this unit so far, and haven't ran into any issues aside from this.  Really would like to see this format supported.

The X5 can read NTFS but has been reported to be unstable. FAT32 is the better bet.

The general recommendation is if it's going to be used by the X5 then format it with the X5. There have been many reports of issues caused by using other software to format FAT32 storage used with the X5 and formatting with the X5 is the safest way for new users be sure the storage is fully compatible.

The problem is that my X5 with firmware 2.0 installed will not recognize any of the USB flash drives that I have connected to it with the provided OTG cable. I remove the SD cards, attach the flash drive via the OTG cable, go to formatting within the X5 and it prompts me to insert a TF card. It doesn't see the flash drive at all. I have tried three different ones all from reputable well known manufacturers and nothing. Has anyone actually gotten OTG to work with a USB 2.0 flash drive of any capacity?  I have used my PC to format the flash drives to FAT32 but the X5 still does not even recognize that there is a device connected to it. A bit of a bummer actually as the one card had about 60GB of music on it before I formatted it on my PC. Now I have to re-transfer all of that music back to it. Not fun!

Yes, I have a 4gb Sandisk that works. I also have a Kingston Data Traveler thay doesn't. As reported a 128gb PNY works as well.

Bummer.

Random question.  Anyone with a jh16fp know what level of DB is when the x5 volume is at 70-75?  Is that safe? because that's what I usually go for.

Tried two more usb drives. Toshiba white 32gb usb stick and 1tb Seagate. Both don't work.

Hmmm, noticed something new. The X5 has started to make a very noticeable click when switched on or off. ??

Not in the earphones, but the actual player, like a switch or something...

At startup, one click, at shutdown 2 clicks, the second a bit lower in tone....

The clicks are the hardware relay switch saving your headphones and ears from loud pops. It's completely normal.

Sure, but they have become louder as before, and thats new... But it functions as it should.

It's worse using a belkin 5V, 2.1A.

Anyone has had the same experience? Is it bad? Should I use another adaptor or USB? As far as I remember it doesn't do that when connected to the computer USB port...

Should I disconnect and reconnect or just let it go?

Thx

 

I've had this happen to me once. I didn't remove the cable, I just 'long pressed' the on off button and when the device powered down all was well. I've stopped messing with the unit when it's charging (I plug it in while it's off, then don't touch it) and this has never happened again.

 

I wouldn't want to have the relays firing all day long, I'm sure they have a certain useful life.

Edit: I use a samsung smartphone charger 5V 2.0A

thank you dulty.

Mine does that even when powered off :(

I disconnect the cable and reconnect and it's fine. Unfortunately it means that I can't leave it alone while charging...

I have a 32GB USB flash drive that I used for a bit, but I had to format it with FAT32 from the command line in Windows 7 as there is no option for FAT32 in the gui formatter.

 

Go to the command prompt in Windows 7 & use the following command:

 

format /FS:FAT32 X:

 

Be sure to change X to whatever drive letter your computer assigns to the flash drive.

Very important!! :p You don't want to wipe out anything you don't intend.

 

Anyway, I think X5 does well with rock, and it's hard to find source that outputs guitar distortion and separates rock instruments well.  I think it's the way the X5 separates sounds that rock music would benefit.
