Yes you can do that and have 256gb however I have been having bad luck with Sandisk lately so would rather have another brand's 128gb card before I use them.

Specially impressive is the silverplated interconnect cable. The sound quality is really breathtaking.


Ahh Thanks for that :D im getting one

x5 leather (artificial) case now £11.99 (UK) on ea audio ebay shop, apparently original price a mistake, now as cheap and easier than importing.

Also, try XLD. It's a one stop shop for ripping and tagging to many, many formats and is all I have used for some time now.  It includes AccurateRip support, sample offset adjustment etc., and is still maintained.

Wow I have been using XLD for ripping and converting, I think I was unaware you could use it to tag existing FLAC files - this makes things easier as now all I would really need is XLD - can't believe I overlooked that! Thanks for the tip.

Two things I don't understand; all the negative, cranky criticisms of the firmware update process and the so called unfinished state of the X5, and as well, all the demands for more EQ settings. I'm delighted to have bought a product from a manufacturer who actually communicates with me as a user and asks for my feedback and opinions about changes and improvements to the firmware - How refreshing that is!

I bought my X5 to hear my music as it was recorded.  I'm very content with the native sound of the X5 on any of my listening devices. i have no interest in EQ and i doubt that I will ever use it.

If you are on a mac then try Kid3 for tagging, I've been using it for a long time and it works very well.

I don't think you can do that. I think @HarryHardcase meant you can tag FLACs during the ripping process. That's what I do but have found that XLD doesn't embed the YEAR tag in FLACs for some reason.

If you can use XLD for stand-alone tagging, I'd be very surprised and would definitely want to know that.

Yup I'm on Mac, someone else recommended that to me as well, thank you! I am gonna try them both out for tagging and see which I like better. Funny, I was searching for this stuff for a while and Kid3 never came up! It's my own fault for thinking XLD can't do it.. I think I read somewhere in a post someone saying they couldn't tag with XLD, or something along those lines, so I just never really tried. Stupidity on my part because I've ripped and tagged CDs before, just thought you couldn't do it to already ripped stuff.

 

 

Also, in your guys opinions, do you think it will be easier to rip all the music from my iPod (160GB, all perfectly tagged with album art) and convert them back from Apple Lossless to FLAC? That may be just as tedious. Maybe I will just redo all my tags, and make sure everything is perfect and fill out every tag (even if the X5 can't read them, it's a nice peace of mind)

 

Just a very daunting and tedious task that I literally just finished a couple months ago and now have to do again!

 

Thank you guys, you are all so very helpful!

Even though I purchased Media Rage, I'll have to give Kid3 a try. I did get MP3Tag working with WINE but found Media Rage, while clunky, is more powerful.

Oh wow it doesnt work with the year tag? Yikes. Maybe I will just use Kid3 then.

And yeah I quickly opened XLD and went to File > Open folder as a Disc, and there you can edit album art and metadata (I suppose minus the year? That's a big one for me)

Nice, thanks for this.  Mind telling me what you use to unpack the firmware file?  I'm curious and may want to experiment a bit myself. 

It's the one that CH23 posted earlier in the thread and the one randell1993 reposted a few pages back ...
