"the whole point of getting a player like the X5 is to cram in as many songs as possible."
This might be how you want to use it and that's fair enough but this is not in fact the actual aim of this player at all. The reverse (the point is a small number of HQ files) is far closer to being true.
I got it for 256GB worth of memory - that is well over 5800 songs, with most of them in ALAC format and a few HDTracks high-res ones. With 128GB cards coming in, and 2 slots, fitting 256GB of music is not an unreasonable request. That is main reason I got the X5 over the DX90.
Again - with all due respect - I dont want to argue with you whether this is a worthwhile feature of not. That is going to lead to another 5 pages of my-opinion-is-bigger-than-yours.
You are right - maybe my opinion is an outlier. But I'd like to get an answer from James as to whether or not they plan to fix it. If they do, great. If not, I'll cancel my order, stick to my iPod Classic and/or get a DX90 and we can save everyone a lot of heartache. I dont that is too unreasonable.
