    i've been asking for this feature for ~2months now with no response. this is critical for any progressive rock albums and/or reissues with bonus content. disc # is a very important tag to implement @JamesFiiO @Joe Bloggs please consider implementing this asap in the next FW update. thank you for...

    HI gain, all day, err'day. it seems to sound better to me. Then I started to notice other people corroborated the same findings as I did. It has to do with the X5II op-amps running in their desired voltage range. However, don't just take other people's opinions as fact, try it yourself, and see...

    rofl @Brooko yea yea. i get it haha. i do sound hypocritical. if you'll allow me to put my tail between my legs... haha. i just hate when people capitalize mac as MAC, as if it stands for something. as for me never using capitalization? im too lazy to hold shift for a split second, whereas he is...

    can @Dobrescu George stop capitalizing "mac", it's not abbreviation of anything, its short for "macintosh". the posix and linux operating systems treat any files starting with a "." as a hidden file. i run both linux and posix systems and have had zero problems writing to micro SD cards with...

    the difference in screen quality between X3II and X5II is night and day, as a previous X3II owner, it was the most annoying thing about that DAP. it was so incredibly annoying to read what was on the screen. if it was sunny out, forget about it. if it was relatively dusty in your room, forget...

    very much this. theres a huge drop off once it hits 1/4 of the meter. if there were some auditory feedback like a beep or a certain tone to indicate this when it is in your pocket, or even a voice saying "battery low" or something ~10m before it dies would be nice. battery reporting doesnt seem...

    im glad someone else agreed with me, because i thought i was crazy. this is not a knock on the quality of the battery by any means, its just that the indicator or the so-called coulomb meter is possibly not reporting properly. is there an interval where it checks the battery and reports it to...

    i mostly use mine in my car. my drive to-and-from work is ~30m, so thats an hr/day driving 5x/wk = 5hrs when used strictly in my car, it sips power, and id estimate i get about 20h using lineout = 2wks between charges   as for when its on (and i only use the high gain option), yes, 10h seems...

    haha. somehow, i will survive @JaZZ it will be treacherous, but i will persevere... talk about #firstworldproblems eh? still loving my X5II with my only complaint being the lack of continuous play feature over OTG. i posted this complaint in the firmware thread, but just for repetition (and...

    yes but not everyone wants to cut slits in their silicon case...   its doable yes, but id rather something a little more secure *AND PROFESSIONAL LOOKING*, something with a stronger backing up against your skin, silicon will stick and rip arm hairs out once i start sweating. plus, you're at...

    no. i've been asking about this forever, and im getting no replies as to if theres even one in the pipeline. no one from fiio cares to answer, and everyone here is just going to tell you to cut your silicon case and put a strap thru it. i dont know if the X1 case fits, probably not cuz the...

    Official X5 2nd gen stable firmware thread--FW2.0: added library search function, Line Output level options, Recently Played playlist, ReplayGain

    thanks @Joe Bloggs i wanted to use the OTG feature this weekend with two different devices (a corsair x2 128 gb flash drive over a startech OTG cable & a leef microsd reader with a pny 128gb microsdxc card). they both work with the x5ii, but they dont continuously play. i figured id mention the...

    Official X5 2nd gen stable firmware thread--FW2.0: added library search function, Line Output level options, Recently Played playlist, ReplayGain

    @Joe Bloggs can we possibly request continuous playback through OTG? OTG currently only allows you to play one song at a time, it will not carry onto the next song unless you manually press play each time. its VERY annoying, and i'd love to have the music continuously play while i'm driving. i...

    great choice! if you have the Judas 0 bonus disc from the greatest hits album, listen to "Rock On". Jimmy's drums sound amazing! those hi-hat rolls are really cool, and james' whammying w/reverb and delay fills out the room.

    i have this leef card reader: http://www.amazon.com/Leef-microSD-microUSB-Connector-Android/dp/B00J2D7R20   it works flawlessly on my X5II with ZERO problems. i used a 128GB stick in it to give me a total of 384GB of total space in my new toy. all i had to do was format it like i always do...

    it depends on how much stuff you have on the card. here's some steps you can take   1. is it a legit brand name microsd card? (or did you get scammed on ebay and get a fake cheap one) 2. ALWAYS format the card IN the FiiO device, i usually do it just fine in gparted on linux, but just to rule...

    yes, i had an X3II, it also supports OTG, so dont fret. if you need more than the 1 card slot you are given, its ok. X5 is good too, but if ur on a budget, the X3II is a great piece of kit. i only bought the X5II for the extra slot, more power, and better screen.

    do you think we'll ever see some sport cases for the X3II/X5II? i'd love to take my X5 to the gym. i wish we didnt have to buy aftermarket stuff all the time to fulfill a need. any input from @JamesFiiO or @Joe Bloggs

    has anyone got this to work in DAC mode on linux? im running ubuntu 14.04.2 and it is crashing pulseaudio/alsa HARD. so much that it locks up other apps and practically forces me to restart the computer. i had a similar issue with my X3II, but once i reset it with a pencil, i was able to get it...

    scroll wheel feels the exact same as the X3II to me personally. i believe this will be the standard from this point onwards. i'd say its the exact same wheel. same little clicky feeling as i scroll.
