Well I did try EQing.  That didn't work at all.  It seems as though with firmware 2.0 they took off more than 10db from the 30-100hz regions because I could not eq that to save my life.  And then with fw 1.23 eqing the same region was too much so I think that they definitely took off more db than you can eq for.

So yeah, I yielded to the temptation and ordered an E12 and HS6 stacking kit :-) Now I'm in a Cadillac (or maybe I should say Porsche or something like that).

No, MP3Tag adjusts all the separate tags. X5 reads these, but not track number (think I recall). Its good practice to have track number at beginning of Track tag and actual Filename, then never any order problems in any player anywhere!

I've actually found that browsing by file or category doesn't allow you to see the songs with the tag info for the song title, track number, or disc number.  It just shows the files by file name.

Just to be clear on this, the X5 does read tag info including the track number and order tracks accordingly. It just displays songs by their filenames all the time.

Joe, formatted on the X5 as was recommended here, in FAT32. I am using all SanDisk cards bought from Amazon, the new 128 GB ones, and also one 64GB card, all good quality cards.

I have a hunch about this. Is this happening most often while the X5 is in your pocket or you're otherwise travelling with the X5 and rarely while the X5 is stationary?

I am sorry but we did not do anything of the sort. confused.gif

Is it DSD64 or DSD128? The X5 only supports the former.

Don't think that has anything to do with where the database is located, but more to do with whether old database is taking care of or not.

I was surprised when I left my X5 idle last night and it completely drained the battery. Ipods can be on idle for weeks.

Also, bought E12 to test. Conclusion - I like X5 as a stand along DAP better. E12 going back to the store.

This might be a silly question but should the gain setting make a difference to the line out signal? I am listening from the line out via a little dot mkiii with hd650s and momentums. I have just picked out low or high setting 5 times in a blind test. There's no real jump in volume like with the headphone out it's just a change in sound character.

Or it could be a compressed (DST) DSD64 .dff, which the X5 doesn't support.

Are there any plans to support DST compression in a future FW release Joe?

Maybe it was already posted but...



It has been many years since the ipod 5gen video has come on the market.



And, aesthetically, the ipod is certainly the good looking father of the X5: I wonder why Fiio didn't manage to have a screen at least as big as....



Pity.

Replaced "animated" on screen scrollwheel with static image

Well done CH23, it looks and functions just fine.

Many thanks to you.

FiiO should be taking notes of this better UI

For any that are interested, I have added the more attractive spinning LP 'album art missing' placeholder to CH23's fantastic "bottom scrollwheel mod" which he posted above.

 

This time, I have Photoshopped the placeholder to be darker and have a hue that suits the X5 theme better.

 

 

 

Here is the link to Firmware 2.0 with CH23's bottom scrollwheel mod and the above album art missing placeholder:
