Again, this kind of feature may be important to some, but I'd be very surprised if it was important to most X5 users. Of course, my opinion is just that -- my opinion. However, as I mentioned in an earlier post, I'm quite sure that Fiio does extensive research before committing to the expense of R&D, engineering and marketing a new product. Clearly, Fiio didn't consider this feature to be important. I'm sure that I'm not the only X5 owner who would prefer to see the existing features tweaked (particularly the ones involving tagging and searching via tags) before something like this is added.
Out of my own personal curiosity, why is this feature important to you? How does having a running count of what you've heard, and how many times you've hear it, improve the music listening experience for you? I ask because I can't imagine what I would do with this information if I had it. Now, I don't pretend to be the typical X5 purchaser, but I at least understand the value of other features that have been requested. This one baffles me.
I agree, as long as there aren't enough people requesting such a feature, FiiO has no reason to even consider adding it.
There are a number of things that require fixing, such as the album art displaying, tagging, playlist support, file limit...
It's important to me, well, "important" because i like to know what songs i play a lot, and which artists i come back to constantly, and which tracks i never play at all.
I believe the last.fm thing can already function if a playcount tag would be used on the X5, i'm not sure about this though.
