    OK, so I'm on board with an X20, .... ordered and should be with me on Tues.

    This is my first DAP (apart from my phone), so a question ... how should I format the Micro-SD card ? Is there a 'best way' to store the music on the card ... does it need to go under a /Music folder or anything like that ?

    Any help would be welcome.
  2. Slater
    What size card are you going to use? If you're going to use a large card (128GB, 256GB, 512GB, etc), I would recommend formatting it FAT32 for the most compatibility.

    @Slater Thank-you ... I intend a 128Gb. Does the music have to be stored in any particular way ? Currently, on my NAS, I have Music(Root)/Artist/Album/Track + Cover Art
  4. Slater
    That should be fine. That’s exactly how I always organize all of my music.

    Note that I don’t have the x20 though, but I don’t see any reason why xduoo did it any differently on the x20 than any of their other DAPs.

    Did you know what's the X20 screen resolution (in order to optimize my albums' covers) and how can I see them in Rockbox?

    Thanks in advance. :)
  7. XVortex
    It is 240x320 (full), so covers area is 240x240 pixels (but it depends on the used theme)

    Getting used to my first DAP, an X20 ... initial impressions are that it's better than I was expecting, especially at the price point of €259 sourced in France. Been playing some acoustic jazz ... my usual genre. I come from a full-size headphone set-up and sound from the X20 has less body and heft (to be expected), it's a bit brighter than I'm used to with good detail but no harshness even on higher freq chords on piano ... which are notoriously difficult to reproduce well, IMO. Double-Bass has reasonable extension and drums have a more than adequate slam... both with good detail. Paired with Massdrop 58X headphones, this player works well ... I'm not a lover of IEM's but that's perhaps because I haven't tried any good quality ones. The 58X will do fine. I will also try a pair of Bose QC35 that I have.

    I also wasn't expecting a case to be included (I thought it was an extra) so that was a pleasant surprise.

    All in all, a good player, nicely designed, good sound and bags of functionality which I have yet to explore. Being able to stream QOBUZ from my iPhone is a big plus for me.

    Nice one XDUOO !

    wow, looking excellent.
    running the x20 version.
    one thing, balanced output doesn't seem to work (volume is extremely low, and turning it up high enough to hear something gives a lot of distortion). is that a limitation in rockbox or just something to be ironed out still?
  11. XVortex
    Balanced output should work nice. Did you insert the headphones prior powering up/load the player?

    I guess I didn't cause that just did the trick. Thanks!

    earlier today i tried to tinker with rockbox themes/backgrounds but i can't find the .rockbox folder. ^_^;
    i suppose it's in the player's internal memory but i don't know how to access that...
  14. Slater
    I assume it is stored on your memory card, not the internal device. It does depend on the device though - on the xduoo X3 it’s all on the memory card and only the boot loader is installed on the device. On the iPod, it’s all on the device.

    Anyways, regardless of where it’s stored, be sure to enable hidden file viewing on your OS to see any of the Rockbox files.

    It's there a video showing X20's rockbok working?
