    After searching and trying many pairs of BT ear buds with the X5iii I received a gift of Soundpeats Truengine SE. So I had to hint to my wife who relayed to my son that I needed earbuds. They are about $50 and for my purposes they sound pretty good with aptX. They pair easily. Great for exercise...

    Loose parts, scorch marks, burning odors. Probably not going to find anything but it will keep you occupied for a few minutes. I was lucky when I found my screw loose (LOL).

    You really should consider popping it open. When I opened mine after I heard some rattling I found an unused screw inside. Very possible you have a similar situation and a short or perhaps a loose connection. Worth a shot if you have the correct screw driver to open it.

    I've officially as of today gone totally digital. I had a local record shop owner come over yesterday and cart off 1800 or so Albums, CD's, DVDs & BluRays and my B&O turntable for some cash. Scary that all my music history resides on FIIO X5, with obviously hard drive backups.

    Two questions - 1. Does the Kernel in Android control the time needed to press the power button to start the player? If so can it be adjusted? 2. Curiosity ?, What about the players and builds cause some people to have issues with the Kernel and others smooth sailing? Mine installs and runs...

    Anyone else have the issue of seeing the Welcome screen and then no boot beyond that? I'd say it happens to me one out of every 10 or so boot attempts. Requires a long (20 second) press to get it to boot correctly. Not really a big deal but would be nice to know why? Possibly need to drop down...

    I previously posted a link of a USA seller of these.

    Thanks, wasn't aware of that info. Note to self: Don't adjust settings that effect volume while IEM's are in ears. The DVC off boosted the volume. It is a bit confusing because I have to set up my phone PA way different than the FIIO, hard to keep track of the changes.

    Don't know if what I seek is obtainable with the Kernel but here goes. Balanced Tubo output is pretty good using FIIO Music App. I generally like the Poweramp interface a lot better although I realize I give up some resolution on some of my music. The Balanced output isn't nearly loud enough...

    Apparently Android in the hands of inexperienced software engineers becomes bloatware. Needs cleaning by someone like JKBuha here https://www.head-fi.org/threads/fiio-x5iii-custom-kernel-and-scripts-2016mhz-cpu-20-ram-increase-undervolting-new-dac-drivers-and-much-more.906004/

    A bit off topic- for any of you with album & cd collections that you want to track I found an app from a young Polish guy which works well. I'm in USA and don't know this guy other than a few nice email conversations recently. I entered all my music into the app, took a bit of time to do so. You...

It is very easy to do the upgrade. HOWEVER if your happy with the player now, don't do anything and don't do the FIIO...

    https://www.parts-express.com/fiio-x5-3rd-gen-portable-high-resolution-music-player-black--230-164 Anybody looking for inexpensive Fiio here it is. I've ordered other components from this company and was pleased with them.

    As I recall when I had mine open, it wan't a simple pull and replace deal. Can you provide tips for installing new battery for future users? Much appreciate whatever you can tell us.
