FW1.5.6 without any problems. I don't notice any difference from the old one but then again I never had an issue where the player froze.

@FiiO,
Thanks for the new Firmware! The bug with not all songs appearing in the 'All Songs' section is now fixed and the update of the lib itself is pretty fast too!

Has the Bluetooth function been improved by the new firmware update?! I have the first version of the X1 and I love it, but I'm after a decent Bluetooth player...Anyone? If it's got decent connectivity I'll get one...

I ended up biting the bullet yesterday and grabbed and X1ii. My iPod Classic was unbearable to use (battery wouldn't last an hour and it's completely full). I used 1.5.2 at first, and updated to 1.5.6 after it was released. The update has dramatically increased the database scanning time, which is very pleasing as I add music regularly. I have faith they'll be able to continue improving the performance and hopefully add gapless support very soon! For $140AUD, I'm happy with my purchase.

Glad to see Fiio released another firmware update!
 
Does the new firmware improve the operational lag or is it still slow?

My brother wants to buy his first DAP and he is looking to spend under $200.00 CAN.  Right now the only option at that price available in Canada is the X1-II.  He likes the look of the Shanling M1 and he has also looked at the X10.  But being his first DAP he is very wary of buying something imported.  I have my reservations about the X1-II as you know but then again I have a bigger budget and I can wait for the X3-III whereas he wants to get something soon.
 
So for those who have updated to the newest firmware can you guys give me an honest evaluation of the X1-II?  What do you think still needs work and what has been improved via the new firmware?  Any feedback would be appreciated

Unfortunately I'm away for the weekend. When I get back I'll update - and probably start the review (I've left it long enough now).  I'll get back to you with thoughts.
