Same here! I'm re-installing 1.2.2 as I type this. I'm hypersensitve to boosted bass. It's not as bad as the X3 is, but firmware 1.2.2 was so much better.
I also found that on 1.2.3b it was trying to re-scan my media card everytime I switched the unit on. That wasn't the case with 1.2.2.
In addition, in the beta firmware, if you play files under the ARTIST view, the track numbers aren't displayed, and some albums play in the wrong seqeunce. In 1.2.2, the track numbers appear, and the tracks always play in the correct sequence.
These issues (excessive bass, media scan, and mising track numbers) were driving me crazy, with no discernable benefit to 1.2.3beta that I could see. It's definitely a "beta." Hopefully, these issues will be corrected in the next official firmware, or else I'm sticking to 1.2.2.
