Well... some of those are "user" thingies... :p
This has been talked about before. There's an app that actually removes all of those files easily and it seems that since FiiO is aware of lots of Mac users, they will actually do something about it.
Never experienced ANY crashes with the "tour" unit. Bear in mind that it had an earlier firmware...
EQ works with 44.1Khz/16Bits and 44.1Khz/24 Bits
EQ does not work with 88.2Khz/24 bits or 96Khz/24 Bits
I am using X5, FW 2.0
Already being worked I think... anyway, using EQ on that unit... meh!
I think this is users fault... I remember that if you kept the middle button pressed, the volume showed up on screen and you could use the scroll to lower it... no need to press power, press volume and then use the wheel...
Also getting very slow playback on DAC mode... sometimes it is finicky when switching between Storage and DAC, so I have to switch back and forth and unplug and replug the wire back in to get it to work.. this time it's playing my songs back at like half the speed or slower (I've also had it play back at 200% speed before). Restarting fixes it, though.
Did not experience this... again, older firmware.
Used the buttons a few times, but using the wheel is the best method, again, probably user "error"...
Never tried that, so not sure... but again, the unit never froze on me.
Did not experience this.

One of the cons in most reviews...
As it is now, every file on every album is alphabetical :(
I am having real difficulty getting the player to recognize my .dff and .dsf files. I've tried re extracting them from .iso to ensure they are not compressed, but no luck. I'm not sure what to try next.
I'm bugged by the operation of the volume rocker, and the reliance on a "duration of press" method of control, which I don't personally favor.
I'm also running into a lot of inconsistency with album art and lyrics. I have these things attached to all my files, and they all display properly in JRiver. However, when transferring them over (even when embedding album art into the files) it's hit and miss. Some albums work, and some don't. I don't even really need album art, but the inconsistency is maddening.
I'm a little bugged by the feel of the click wheel, specifically how it rocks in its housing, and how sensitive it seems to be to small movements. I have a devil of a time choosing the right icon.
Yeah, had the inconsistency with album art and I'm not a fan of the wheel's built either... never tried .dff, .dsf... I think they were not supported at the time of the tour (nor OTG)
I just updated the firmware to 2.0.
I try to install the USB DAC driver but the installer can't detect my device. I'm using Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, fully updated.
Probably user error... I used the unit on Windows 8 and Windows 7 machines, no problems (again, older firmware)
Now, am I saying that the X5 is the best evaaaa?!?! Errmm.. No. Not yet at least but of the ones I've tried lately, it performed well enough.
Still rocking the AK100 MK2 until they fix the "file management" issues then I'll probably try it again...
