If it does allow it, then is it just one playlist (which is a limitation of the Cowon J3), or can there be multiple playlists, just like on an iPod Classic?
It doesn't look like they have playlist support :(. I hope fiio can add this as it would make this player perfect for me. I'm a control freak and like to have all my music organized how I want it :).
Anyways, you can view your music via folder view, album, artist, favorites (add favorites to your list first), genre & all music. Even with WAV it recognizes the tags and allows for this. They all work. This is excellent.
In System Settings you can manually update the library (scan). I'm not sure if this can be changed to auto although I prefer to manually do it anyways. There is a key lock setting which gives you two options Option 1 disables the buttons on the DAP so you can't switch tracks or adjust volume while the screen is off. With option 2 it gives you that ability. Sweet! You can also adjust the screen time out, idle power and sleep mode. You also have a USB mode feature which can be switched from either storage or DAC. Under this menu you also have info about the X5, the ability to format either SD slot, and you can do a factory restore.
Under Play Settings you have Play Mode which allows you to play songs @ random, repeat, Play all, and there is one more function but I'm not sure what that play mode is... You also have gapless playback under this menu which can be enabled or disabled. You can also adjust the max volume, and a fixed volume setting. There is also a Power on Volume settings (will start the unit at a specific volume @ your choice). Lastly there is a Low and High gain setting and balance :). With balance you can adjust how loud the left channel or right channels are if you have hearing loss. Very sweet. Lots of customizations available on this UI. :).
@ amber I think the SE5 sounds quite good on X5. I'm not sure if I'd still give the Rocoo BA the nod still in terms of synergy though. I'll have to compare both and I'll let you know which I prefer in terms of pairing.
