    Yeah I was referring to your review :)
    Thanks for correcting it. Now let's hope the next model will actually have a battery that lasts so long ! :)

    Recently received BJ-T6. The first disappointment was that it does not play ISO (not promised, though).
    Another thing which bothers me is tiny fonts. Is there a way to increase them in titles (performer, album, song name etc.)?
    Does it make sense to change the firmware?
    Is it possible to have RockBox for T6?

    Does anybody know why the blind switching to a next song was cancelled in 1.04 Beta firmware?
    I mean you have to light up the screen to move to the next song. It was not like this in older types of firmware. You could do it with screen off.

    With both firmware that I have used the only thing I can do with screen off is adjust volume.

    AGPtek】ROCKER UPT1.05Beta Firmware Update(5th, April, 2017)

    6. Update: the player can not be operated when the screen is off. (Former version: when the screen is off in the list interface, you can press the up/down arrow buttons to scroll up/down)

    Oh okay, I'm still running on 1.1. I don't care to operate when screen is off except for volume so I'm going to give 1.06 a try. Cheers. :beerchug:

    I think it's implemented to avoid accidental pressed if put inside an arm band or a bag while travelling. For me it's not really an issue as well

    I upgraded to the 1.06 firmware. No real noticeable changes with the way I use the player but is worth noting that your settings will be reset after the upgrade. I had to re-enable auto resume and gapless playback.

    Just a personal experience after brief moment of playing around with my newly arrived Benjie T6. Current firmware : Agptek firmware v1.1

    Dislike (minor):
    - Low res screen, artwork not well-presented
    - Now playing screen shows "file name" instead of track / title from ID tag
    - ISO not supported (not detected even, not that I desperately need it)
    - Embedded lyrics not supporteda
    - Limited artwork file size

    Like :
    - Sound is good and neutral, may not be appealing to whom prefer aggressive treble and or bass
    - Solid built
    - Fast media content update
    - Better media management, ID tag and auto-sorting (than cheaper series)
    - Gain options
    - Transferring is fast and easy (32 Gb class 10 SanDisk)
    - Resume supported
    - Lrc supported (tested out of curiosity), directly on now playing screen
    - Bluetooth connection setup is fast, works properly either transmitting or receiving stream
    - Support "folder.jpg" cover art


    Tested format : mp3, flac, ALAC, aac (m4a), dsf

    It supports higher res covers but it must be jpg file not bigger than several hundred kilobytes.

    I guess we need to tweak the compression level then. I have embedded artworks goes by 1200x1200 which weren't displayed, however trial and error adjustment to 1000x1000 rewarded me with expected outcome.

    Mine is reading even 1600x1600 but 200-300kb and it MUST be jpg not png/bmp witch changed extension

    Hi, anyone able to show playlists in "Playlists" menu on home screen? I am talking about playlists that aren't created via player menu. I can only access my m3u playlists via folder view and each works properly. Is there any difference between m3u and m3u8 in this particular player? I am using playlist creator, though convenient it isn't able to create m3u8. Is there any other app for Windows able to do so and stil easy to use?

    I have my playlists as .m3u8 and they show up in the "Playlists" menu on home screen, but there is a catch. There is a limit on the number of playlists you can have. I have a huge number of playlists which seems to "confuse" the OS so the playlists menu only shows 13 of them ! I end up getting into the folder view to access them.
