It used to be on sale on Ebay here for $29.99. They are out of stock now and check out the price that they are asking for the last one...!
(There are other adapters out there but Sintech is a good company.)
The only advantage is that you can buy an inexpensive 128GB SD card. (SD generally supports twice as much storage as microSD because it is bigger.) This was especially useful for the single micro slot DX50 to get some decent memory on board. It was convenient too since I was using an external amp and could sandwich the adapter between the DAP and the amp.
With the X5 having two micro slots - and sounding great without an external amp - I have not seen the need to use this adapter. I bought two 64GB microSD cards.
I had an unusual bug today - everything on the screen was reversed as if looking into a mirror. It still worked and I could navigate around and evwerything, but it did happen. It went away after awhile, maybe 5 minutes. It was funny because at that point, the scroll wheel worked exactly the way Teke wants it to.
What I mean is , after turning off the X5 (last position setting) it'll go to the 'Now Playing' screen as you stated , but , when I pressed the back button (which is the top right button) , the song list remains blank , until I go back to the main menu by pressing back , and then it'll re-appear when I click on "Browse By Song" .
hahaha, would you call this coercion?
Ok, here is a proper wording: It is hoped that FiiO will listen to our requests and add the fixes and enhancements into the X5 product line. In the meantime we will wait for "in progress" and "resolved" then we can
^^ I think that you are using the database browser so I can't really comment. I just use a long back press to get the main menu and then enter the folder browser. I don't use the database.
Edit: I just did a test. When it restarts and plays the last position, a short back press takes me to the all songs database screen. It is not blank - all gazillion songs are there. This is a useless place to be which is why I always do a long back press to skip past it and get to the main screen.
My X5 on tour box arrived today in London
having a initial play at work.
The UI really confused me (never used an Ipod) especially the wheel, I find the UI not that intuitive.
All working fine, using W7/64bit Dell Precision at work, no driver issues.I find click and choice to be a bit laggy
Using ES10s (REM Fables 16/44 and Reckoning HD 24/96) I find the sound a little dark, bass a bit much, not brightly lit, my 801 is dead so using my
Studio 3rd at the moment. Without changing any firmware yet I prefer the Studio with the ES10s (ESW9 pads)
With DT1350s in place, the sound becomes flatter to me. Bass boost has gone, treble sounds better, however I can't say
it sounds any better than the Studio 3rd, but I will try lots of different recordings,
Overall the machine has great build, works very well, I love the look of the back, I don't like the look of the front and X arrangement.
I am crying out for HIFIMAN style buttons.
Should I update the firmware???
As I am last on the UK list, do I get to keep it? :-)
