So, you bought this DX50 despite the fact that it doesn't claim to have a clock and now you feel wronged because it doesn't have a clock? I'm sorry man, I just can't follow your logic. I understand your frustration when it comes to the bugs though.
YES, the first firmware was crap (judging by comments here) but with 1.1.6 I think this genuinely has the best UI of any audiophile DAP yet. Sure beats the DX100 in my opinion, even though the DX100 has a (wildly inaccurate, by the way) clock.
I did not say that i felt "wronged' by it not having a clock. In my original post, i just added that it could use a scroll bar and a clock after agreeing that the new update is still flawed because it does not allow folder or album selection in the Artist sort. I am not sure why people are so upset by the suggestion that it would be useful to have a clock. For some reason, everyone has fixated on that comment. I am also not sure why people are so offended by such a suggestion either. I probably set the wrong tone with my harsh terms, but i am not sure why people have gotten heated about that - since that was not even the source of my main complaint. I just added that it could use a scroll bar and a clock.
