Basically you're here on the forums you're inside the deep workings of X5 becoming that device you're asking. But without us reporting the problems and FiiO knowing these issues it would take a lot longer. So of course you're going to see us reporting bugs, minor bugs at that. Having held X5 in my hand for 10 days it was rather a pleasure to use compared to some others that have issues and considered abandoned on firmware updates all together now.
Patience goes a long way.
+1 This is why I am taking this X5 review seriously; as a Computing student, I will like to use whatever skills I have learnt so far and apply it here to make a better product.
Besides, I am strongly considering it as an upgrade for my portable and desktop setup, so you can say that I am also making a small non-monetary investment here :P
To prove my point, does anyone have the link to FW1.00? I am still unable to find it here and will like to have it to do some tests to prove something... weird about FW1.10. Found it on Fiio website (http://www.fiio.com.cn/UploadFiles/main/Images/download/X5FW1.00.zip) :X
