100% Agreed: If only I could have read ONE good user review, I would have waited. But... instead I finally bought last week a HUGO.

There will always be something better and new on the horizon, sometimes you just have to settle on something. (then upgrade later down the line :D)

I don't think it's very clear - reading the thread, there are some that have echoed what you said, but there are also some who have confirmed that 5800 is the limit, regardless of how you view/store/whatever.

 

 

Good news for you: You are concerned about nonsense. I have some 12,000 songs on my X5 which are all readily accessible from Folder view. The limitation is in the database only.

I think everyone is anxious about the release, but we need to be patient. It is known that there was a slight delay caused by finding a bug and fixing it. Better that they found out before and not after it has shipped a thousand units! :)

THANK YOU!

At last, someone with a large collection has answered the question!

Right, so I have about 18000 songs in total. Let's ignore whether they will or won't all fit in terms of available memory, let's just assume they will all fit on two installed 128gb cards.

I use the current file structure - alphabetical (i.e. A-C, D-F, G-I, J-L, M-P, Q-S, T-V, W-Z)>artist>album>song

1 - will ALL 18000 songs be recognised and playable (I'm assuming the answer is - yes)?
2 - will ALL 18000 songs be picked up on shuffle?

1) if you can find your song in Folder view, you can play it.

2) No they will not. only 5800 will be picked up by the X5 while in shuffle.

greatbadir, your folder structure sounds fine. I use Genre > Artist > Album. The most songs I have in any one folder is 799 (a special collection of 70's hits). It, like all my folders, reads fine in the Folder view.

I wish the Calyx had the option to easily replace the battery. Li-ion batteries don't have the greatest longevity.

Would have been nice more so for a 1k player. An accessible battery compartment or as a minimum to make the player easily op-enable for allowing us to exchange the internal battery.

People losing interest ?

It should pick up as soon as it's available at the local retailers. I just got a DX90 coming in, so I am eager to compare the 2 side by side.

And I am (we are) anxiously awaiting your comparison. Just got my X5, and waiting for my dx90 to arrive as well, but wanted the Calyx M. Unfortunately, unlike Singapore, in Seattle Washington we don't have a Jaben or alike so we have to buy to try. ūüėĒ

So is the output impedance 0 or 3 ohms? The website says around 0, but there is some reference on here to it being 3. :confused:
