It could even be my albums (I have to check them too). I have to admit though - I do find your sense of entitlement ("this is totally unacceptable") pretty much over the top.
Maybe try taking a breath and realising this is a DAP - it's not pacemaker or other life necessitating device. Perhaps a sense of perspective ....
Oh, come on. Who's being overly dramatic here, me or you? Try taking a breath and re-reading what you just wrote.
I was genuinely tring to be helpful when I asked if you had gapless switched on. Several people complained that gapless did not work on the X3 because they didn't realize there was an on/off switch. Which is perfectly reasonable BTW - why would anyone ever want to switch gapless off?
I maintain that non-working gapless with FLAC is totally unacceptable, especially considering that FiiO has already gotten it right on the X3 firmware. FLAC is a gapless format by design, mp3 is another story - that's why I asked.
Sheesh. People are SOOOO sensitive here!
