And what's good about the unit, to me, far outpoints what is not so good.
But I have the same problems at work. We have multi-hundred thousand $ broadcast audio consoles and the operators call us to look at "problems" that basically come down to "I don't want it to work this way, I want it to work that way". But it's designed to work "this" way. No matter how the manufacturer decides to implement things, folks will want it different.
I was grappling with incomplete scans only to find eventually that some filenames were too long for the code in the DX50 to handle (despite them being no problem in the DX100).
Anyone who's been a major software revision at work like a SAP implementation would know most "problems" are that operators want it to work like the old system and that trying to run like legacy systems handicap some of the benefits that streamlining and eliminating redundant operations produce or should produce.
Ppl should realise that any computer is a very logical device/code. Unexpected results are not random. The same input will result in consistent errors/results. The volume thing is most likely the result in a very specific set of circumstances and thus fixable. But coding is complex and most software development is an evolutionary thing. If it were not we would not be using OSX 10.# or Windows 8 or iOS 7 etc....
The DX50 likes to have its music files to follow certain conventions and if they do they will play properly. Some are reluctant including me at first to re tag and so on to make them play properly on the 50 but in effect the more conventional the tags, the fewer problems I'll have with any device. Heck I remember when I got my first iTunes experience and the things I had to change to get albums not to be split into multiple entries because every artist resulted in a different album. And Apple still does that. IBasso fixed it in their first FW update.
My DX50 seems to be much better behaved now I'm playing its game rather than asking it to play mine...
