    I switched to using the Files view pretty quickly 'cos of the Various Artists issue. TBH I sort of prefer that anyway, as my last few players have worked that way.

    One Amazon one review states The R3 does not work with Apple products and does not show up on apple computer when plugged into it.I have all my music on iTunes in an iMac. I need to know if I can move music to a card on the R3 from iTunes in an iMac. Thanks

    I simply copied my iTunes music folder onto the micro SD card.
    You need a card reader and an adapter to micro SD, but it's faster and IMO easier.
    Never tried to edit the library tethered.

    I connect it to my Mac mini via USB and it shows on the desk top as an external hard drive and I'm able to drag files in & out of it, no problems.

    First, let me thank you for posting this customized firmware. Very nice of you to share this.

    I was unable to get the 65000 database tracks feature to work. The music scan either freezes the R3 (same behavior as the Hiby firmware) at 16,231 tracks, or the spinning image keeps spinning indefinitely and the track count stops at 16,231 (either way, I had to power cycle the unit to get it out of those states--same as with the Hiby firmware). Is there some trick to getting the customized firmware to read the full 65,000 tracks?

    Also, one suggestion for future customization -- as Neutron does, perhaps add something to the scan menu to let you scan only certain folders, which will help us stay within the database track limit, whatever it is, and use folders to access the rest.

    Yep, you should find out and delete file with bad tags that causes stuck/crashes on updating database.

    If you're moving a few songs, you can also use the web interface and don't have to have it plugged into your computer. The comments above are right on -- trying to move files through the R3 tethered is possible, but it's really slow. You're better off plugging the card into a reader and doing it that way.

    Thanks for the tip! I'll check those.

    Copy this file to the micro SD card for the R3 outside of any folders before your next scan. After a crash occurs, the file (debug_info.txt) will be filled up with debug info regarding the scan that we can look at.

    I can't seem to get the MSEB to work for me. Am I suppose to use this along with the equalizer or instead of equalizer? There are so many settings that Im lost. Anyone have any MSEB settings that might work for more bass that isn't boomy and also a taming of sibilance highs. Thanks for your help.

    I know I've said it before, but it bears repeating. The alphabetical search function found in All Songs would be an amazing addition to the Favorites and Playlist menus. As of now, finding a specific song in your playlist is next to impossible since it's not alphabetized. Now I understand it doesn't need to be alphabetized since it is a playlist and all, but some kind of search function is definitely needed.

    Firstly check that it is working on your songs. You can use it with and without the regular EQ alongside but neither will function for songs encoded at over 48kHz sample rate on the R3.

    As for your particular sound signature request, I would recommend pushing up (right) bass extension and bass texture, reducing (left) note thickness, and reducing Sibilance LF and Sibilance HF depending on where exactly the sibilance troubling you lies. LF sibilance is er more whooshy and HF sibilance is more tizzy? :sweat_smile:
