As I mentioned above, it should get an upgrade to the latest drivers, and it is not a good idea to install anything else on the player as that will make it more buggy than it sometimes is.

Also, it can take awhile for it to see all the music you put on a card.

I have no problems with mine, other than when I change a lot of music files, then I just leave it plugged into the wall charger and things sort themselves out within an hour or so.

 

It has read both SD cards that I have used, formatted correctly for DAP's. It plays all my music fine. Some have reported constant rebooting, but I think that may be because they have installed other things, or have not updated to latest firmware. I don't have that problem.

 

You can probably get more info at the R10 thread.

 

Good choice, by the way.

excuse my ignorance and not having read all the pages in this thread. My question is, how does a laptop pc sound compared to a zx1 ?  let's say no amp or dac is connected to the pc. 

 

cheers.

It really depends. The headphone jacks of most laptops are riddled with noise, and the electrical signals of the motherboard can be clearly heard. Some are extremely clean.  It all depends on the model of your PC, and the type of sound card it has built in.

So sound improvement-wise I might be better off with my laptop and foobar? Are there any threads reviewing pc and soundcards?

Don't listen much through my laptop, but I got a Dragonfly and I was good to go!

So far, the bottom line of my feelings is: get a dap that is ergonomic, easy to use, gives you features that you value, decent battery life, high capacity and play all your files. The SQ difference in between daps are "way less" important than the headphones-c/iems and mastering quality. At this moment I can't say convert all your files to 320 kbps mp3 and call it a day but I can say, 16bit cd quality is actually more than enough, the rest seems like a waste of space and battery especially in portable life.

 

 

you nailed it in just 3 lines, sir.
