Well as mentioned something is not right on the guy's DX200. But does not happen to everybody else. Many users here including me will be making noise already if this is common to all DX200 players. X7 has been disappointing so far to me as every time I use it there is always an issue that stops me from using it. Yet the X7 is improving every iteration of the beta FW but still have a few issues like random crashes that interrupts listening. I have a DP-X1A, while the UI is much better now it is not without a fault as well. Given how early DX200's firmware, I say it's already on par with DP-X1 as far as the default player is concern. Why would you be disappointed and expecting performance at the same level as a smartphone? Even the DP-X1A is far from polished compared to a smartphone. Yet I don't mind as long as it makes me enjoy the music without the annoying issues that interrupts music playback.
