Hi, does the X5 play DSD natively? Thanks.

I heard there will be a firmware upgrade for it and will support it. Correct me if I am wrong smily_headphones1.gif

Not natively, but via internal transcoding.

Ah ok. That is fair then. I remembered people complaining about them shipping out of order. :evil:

It is good! The bass might be a little anemic for bassheads (speaking as one myself) for the first week or so but as the X5 burns in the bass really opens up. What I have right now is a very accurate yet punchy bass, very enjoyable for anything I throw at it.

Oh good that's what I wanted to hear.  I'll be using a jh16 pro and later the roxanne once they get their game together.  I can't pump the bass on the x3 more than +5 because it gets too muddy.  I hope I can go +10 on the x5 (32hz) without any muddiness...

Interesting, I'll have to experiment with my iPod to see what happens.  Universal is fine though, regardless.

I never did try it out as a dedicated amp/dac, but I will say that it is much more resolving than the E17 - it brings out the fine details with ease. 

Sounds good.  I'll get the E17 on eBay ASAP!

I have 64GB cards full of ALAC files & it takes less than 30 seconds to perform the update. If you have a lot of smaller files that need to be scanned I am guessing it may take a bit longer, but it shouldn't take more than a minute or 2.

Well, if you've got 64GB cards with ALACs, that's probably around 2000 tracks.  If that only takes you 30s then me with my puny 32GB cards should be done even quicker.  Should be fine.

 

Thanks for all the responses so far.  The only thing I'm hoping someone can shed light on now is, when browsing by Album tag (not in Folder mode), does the X5 respect the CD No. ID3 tag (officially I believe it is the TPOS - Part Of A Set frame)?  If the answer to that is a firm, "yes", then I'll be a happy bunny and start trying to find the best price for a new X5!

Formatting of fake cards will not show the true capacity, nor would chkdsk, even with the /f function.  What you've described is pretty much exactly how a fake card behaves.

I recently added a bug to Bugzilla about the icon rotation on the main menu and got rather negative feedback from the Fiio person who stated that "There are far more people with no problem with it, and in the big thread here there are far more people taking time out to back my posts on the subject than there are complaining.".

 

If you find the movement of the icons on the main menu moving opposite the direction of the wheel confusing, please add your vote and comments to the bug.

 

Here's a link

BTW, While comments here are great to read I would guess that the bugs and enhancement requests in Bugzilla are the ones that get consideration for future firmware releases, so please sign up and use this tool to give Fiio your feedback..

Does anyone know if Firmware 2.0 will have a way to view all songs from an artist? Right now you can go to Artist and view all their albums, but I think there should be an "All Albums" option so it lists all of the songs in one list.
