yes, I will stop the mp3 business  if I am the CEO of  SONY, they are too big so the mp3 means nothing for SONY. even they take all the market share in mp3 market.  

 

It would help if other manufacturers stopped dumping/releasing Beta products on their Customers, at least with Apple & Sony you know they're going to work out of he box.

I definitely agree on that although the x3 I have definitely isn't as bad as I thought it would be in usability. The dx50 I owned was a nightmare in comparison despite the sound. I have faith that the x5 will be better when it is released.

Or works in a certain way. There were periods when I had to stop using my iPad2 as a music player or other purpose, such as:

1) When iOS6.3.1 disabled USB audio (prior to that, others had issues when iOS5.x.x cut down power output through the CCK)
 

2) iOS7 brought back USB Audio, but Accudio and FLACPlayer started crashing and not displaying some album art that previously worked on them AND the same files are not having any kind of issue on NeutronMP, PowerAmp, and MediaMonkey on my Android, none of which required slow arse syncing - I shut off my devices once in a while anyway, so I just do that, take out the microSD, drag and drop, put it back, reboot when charged (which takes less time with the device off), and boom - all audio files automatically added to all music players, instead of going through iTunes and only one player can recognize each, which would be fine IF it was working flawlessly. Sadly, no - every time iOS updates, I have to try if the other player has bugs before the app gets its compatibility update.

3) Before I got to enjoy iOS7, I soon discovered the downside to updating to iTunes 11 - it started hoarding ALL music files in my notebook, even after instructing it to just look at one folder. I'm listening with MediaMonkey, then the next track won't play; it jumps to the next, and one by one each track greys out like how Hollywood portrays hackers deleting their target's files. That includes the FLAC files that it can't play - I can imagine it snickering like this: "Looks like audio, but I'm not sure...what the heck, MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

4) Removed iOS7, then realized that all the academic journals I had on PDF were on my Notebook because that's what I use for work. Tried iTunes 11 again, and within a few hours after I put in new articles in my iPad2, it hoarded the files again. Uninstalled iTunes, and now if I have to get new journal articles to bring around and read during any spare time I get, instead of doing it through my work computer, I have to boot up my desktop. I hoped it would be totally a gaming rig, but no - I have about a hundred plus PDFs in there until some of them get moved to my back up drive if I decide not to use it for class.

Not to start an Apple v Android/Linux v Microsoft debate here, but I'd rather be more specific as to why I don't think there is anything that works flawlessly for absolutely everybody. Some just work generally much more smoothly for a lot more people, but I'm sure I can't be the only one who breaks that curve. My Dad is the other one and to some extent my brother, but he at least bothered to own a MacBook (then again, at some point he swapped out the optical drive for a new HDD and ran Windows 7 on it the way my Dad's computers dual boot Linux and Windows).

I love iOS, and have been using it since v2.1.1, but it's far from flawless.

Here's something fun to try:

Lock your iPhone, open camera > camera roll, now go into the bottom menu, and open the calculator.


I'm sure you can now agree with me that FiiO is doing a very good job wink.gif

The DX50s UI sucks but the sound to me is great, do you think there will be a significant sound difference between the X3 and X5, if so I'm thinking of selling my X3 to fund the X5 as I like Fiio products but only want to keep one of the Fiio Daps.

I actually prefer the dx 50 ui compared to the fiio ui , but thats prolly because i actually like touchscreeen devices

post #1962 of 19490

They are both (ui's that is) much better than the Studio V...just sayin' :tongue:

you are right , hisound players from what I have tried and using an ipod as a standard seems to have an extremely bad ui , can;t stand it no matter how good the sound is
