What is this? Some kind of attempt to downplay the NEED for a newer firmware than the 1.06? I'm not buying it, as this device needs a NEW firmware, not a regressive attempt to go backwards. To now be talking about a couple folks who think that they are content going backwards doesn't avoid the fact that the cognizant purchasers of this device are asking to get the problems with the 1.06 FIXED, not just content on going backwards. This device needs new firmware. 1.04 is not acceptable to anyone here, except perhaps one or two people. With the introduction of new devices, it seems that the ball was dropped on the X7 Mk II to allow the engineering resources at FIIO to be concentrated on making these newer devices marketable. Let's just say that we haven't all decided to allow a couple of posters to get the engineers off the hook here. We must have some new firmware to fix a host of problems with the X7 Mk II. I don't even attempt to run this device from a cold boot, as I know it needs to be rebooted again to work at all. My device locks up and won't play anything until I reboot it if it hasn't been on in a day or more. That needs to be fixed with a firmware update.
