My X5 cannot play all my 88.2k files properly. It plays 88.2k files with lots of noise, and abnormal slow speed.
Anyone can help?
Thanks!

There is a "favorites" function...kind of an "on-the-go" playlist.

Appreciate the help.

Look for my review of the X5. Main focus is comparing with the X3

but the favorite function lacks the option to categorize your music, so you have to navigate through all songs and that makes the favorite function useless if you want to create a playlist on the go.

Anytime you're playing a song you can hit the shortcuts key to bring up an option to favorite the now playing song. So you just need to search for and play your favorite music via the usual means (folder or category) and favorite the songs when your favorite tunes come along and next time they will be available from the favorites tab.

that's not the point, it's about adding songs quickly without having to play them,  you really should add the option to order the files in the favorite mode because it's not well-conceived as it is, now.

 

 

simply add the "heart-button" on the shortcut button while navigating through the music library, maybe than the favorite mode could work as a dynamic playlist.

 

or make the center button opens a menu when you are down to a single file(song) so you can choose the play a song next to the one your currently listening(and some other options like info, favorite, delete, etc.)

The Headphone Bar in Vancouver is a great online and brick and mortar store.  I picked up my X5 from him. He said he will be selling the X5 online when he gets more stock.

If only it were that easy...

post #6868 of 19490
Being able to add entire albums or artist folders at once to the favorites would be great too.
post #6869 of 19490

yes, definitely.

 

there should be a "play all" option for Artists to connect the Folders/Albums. But there isn't and that's why the play mode "continue" doesn't work, it stops with the last song in the folder you have chosen, can't even jump to the next record of the artist.

 

 

it's a matter of comfort and how audiophiles enjoy and consume their music. They are common Music-player features, not even a special requests.

With all due respect, I think the FiiO guys should field this, not you or I.    It is not your or my place to answer for them.
