I might have to try that one looked it up on line a portable with tubes what is not to like

Maybe the price?

Well, I must admit its not the cheapest out there for portable but when it comes to sound quality and musical involvement all of us that own them think the amp a bargain. If you wanted something smaller and hybrid then you should check out the 06'. I have not heard it but it is getting the same sort of reviews in terms of musicality and enjoyment. If I had to get rid of all but one of my components the TU-05 is the one that would stay.

i am still stuck, i have no clue WTF i am doing wrong here.

 

i even went as far as reformatting my HDD on my laptop and reinstalled windows. when i go into a artist file, then go into a album, ALL of my tags are fine, they have the artist,track titles,albums ect

 

i first loaded everything with .wav then i converted everythnig over to .FLAC still when i put the artist files and folders onto the AK it still comes up unkown artist.

 

when i do it in .flac it does have artist in there, however lets say john mayer feat so and so....it list that particular song individual from the album its in. so i have multiple artist for just one song if the song is featuring anyone.

 

here is a shot of a open album, it has the song titles,album,artist ect is this right?

 

 

 

if anyone can help its really driving me crazy

Do you use a tag editor like mp3tag?  If not download Mp3tag  then make sure the artist tab is filled with the artist name  Had the same issue yesterday and after downloading Mp3tag and filling in the missing field in the artist section it works.

To be honest it's much easier to navigate via folders. No matter how much you try sort out the tags it would never be like using an ipod.

Often I just use my iTouch series one for things like that as the SQ matters less than battery life.

 

I tend to agree on this. I've pretty much given up listening to my music on the go because there are simply too many distractions where I can't fully enjoy the music. Plus I need to be fully aware of my surrounding because people don't know how to drive, or cross roads are the most retarded time lol.

i have wav files on my 120 titan and it doesnt display the artist when i play a song it only shows the song...i can of course access the songs on the album but only using the folder method...if i try to access the albums and artists using those folders nothing displays....when i used my WMA it showed all the info and displayed in the album and artist folder....i am willing to deal with this inconvenience because wav files sound so much better!

Wav files don't have tags in them so AK120 wouldn't be able to display any information on the music being played.

The multiple songs for one artist is normal on the AK models. That's why I don't bother with viewing artist. I just use the folder view then select the artist from there.

Pain I know but hey it's all worth it for the sound quality. biggrin.gif

yeah this is the same thing i am getting, my wma and when i right click on the songs in windows it gives all info, but not on the AK

 

i guess i will just have to deal with it, i refuse to listen to anything less than uncompressed straight ripped cd's, i guess it will just have to be whatever, because i have tried everything

I don't completely agree witih this beemarman. The Fiio X5 can read tags on WAV. That is for album artist, genre, etc. It probably can show album art on WAV if you imbed it into the file. There are ways to do this.

This statement is not accurate.  If your music catalog is tagged correctly  -- Artist, Albums, Song -- selection criteria options works just fine.

It works for me. I have 192Gb of flac and wav files on mine and no way am i going to check that all of them are tagged correctly. No matter how you tag them it's never going to be better than using an ipod touch.
