The software/firmware is set in stone with version 1.03. It hasn’t been updated or changed in years.
my suggestion to limit lag and buggy problems with the UI just don’t exceed the 64 Gig memory card. :wink:

ive had my player now for nearly 6 years. :wink:
Still works like a champ and the battery life is decent. I get 4 hrs still.
Mine will play about 6-7 hrs w/o any turn-on of the screen, or changing songs -- just straight-on playing tunes w/ its (poor) shuffling. Those are the days when I forget to switch on the wall-wart (or I take it on the road to play in the car while on road trips.)

I wonder if anyone on this thread (or forum) has ever used any of the higher-end A&K players, and if so, does more $ buy you better shuffling (shuffling thru the ENTIRE library, not just a small part of it) or auto-leveling? These really are my only 2 beefs with the Junior. I keep reminding myself this is "ONLY" a $600 DAP; A&K makes models selling for well over $3K !
