Any beta available for the X3? I will be happy to test and report.
I agree, and where I think you can hear the difference with lossless music, the iTunes tracks can sound pretty darn good. I don't bother upgrading most of the iTunes music I bought when I started this stuff.
keep in mind older tracks you bought from apple may be drm. Make sure
you redownload them in non drm format now. Yes you can do that.
You can write it on the Album folder. Are there another common way to track years on DAPs? Is the year associated with the music file?
Yes, I always add the year in the tags of my files, but it seems that the X5 can not read it (many players like Sony do this, but not my DX50).
This is a message for comment by JamesFiiO,
I have my X5 set to play the last song when it is turned on. My music is arranged in album and artist folders, but when the X5 starts it always defaults to an alphabetical list of all the songs on both micro sd cards. This is a long list. To always load such a long list into system memory when it is not needed (or wanted) by me seems a waste of scarce system resources. Is this necessary?
