Alternative to the included case (ultra-portable)

thanks for the pics, it gives me an idea on the size of both when stacked :D

Would that stacker kit hypothetically work with another amp like the Topping nX1?

I already tried foobar, media monkey and winamp and none of them work for both syncing and making playlists on the pc at the same time except Winamp (which as explained in previous posts doesn't like anything not formatted as an android drive but even then is kinda spotty in terms of compatibility)

@Voshra I don't want it to seem like I'm ignoring you, I just don't have an answer for you as I don't use playlists.

 

Well as I said, without something that consistently works for making/editing/syncing stuff to the player it's just gonna end up sitting and collecting dust----

if I wasn't picky sure, but I primarily make playlists by band *discographies*, genres and sub genres (primary mode I'd say), and large-scale (600 tracks in my main favorites playlist) collection playlists and have many playlists that have the same music in each depending upon mood which when you're working with 5000ish tracks is quite a pain as it is making playlists with a playlist editor and near impossible and completely insane having double or quadruple the same files existing in multiple places on the microsd (nevermind being as ineffective as heck for storage size)

 

 

Still hoping someone out there uses programs to sync/make/edit playlists with that syncs properly with the X1 as Winamp is the only I came close to but as mentioned has failed on me since the method I've done to make it even work with that is kinda 'jimmy-rigged' and a loophole at best that works inconsistently by trying to trick winamp into haphazardly support the device.

Yep should do.  All it's really doing is setting a platform for you to loop rubber bands around.  So as long as the bands can fit (stretch) around, you should be fine.

What is the best low budget amp you have found to work best with X1?

I can't really say which one works best, but C&C BH2 I'm trying right now definitely sounds very good paired with X1. I feel that any decent amp will do well as I find that the quality of the headphone output is inferior to that of the line out. Or at least my ears tell so:)

what is the X1's battery life if used as "line-out only" ?

I'm looking for something cheaper, E11k or NX1, as i understood NX1 is better at everything, except sound stage

One of the problems I find with the NX1 is that the volume control needs to be quite high for you to get equal balance.

 

At a lower volume the sound comes out of the left side more until you turn the volume control high enough then it balances out.

 

For me it is just on the edge of the volume level I can take. So it means that sometimes I have to have the volume higher than I would like or else I lose sound on the right side for some reason.

I embed my album art.  That way there is no risk of pauses.
