I bought this shit.
I like it.
I don't exactly like the interface.
Do I rockbox?
is there anything other than rockbox?
Do I really NEED to format my SD card for best results (FAT32)? whatever that means.
FiiO X1 General.
And yet, all these people don't know the year is no longer 2006
Luckily a modest few know that no one buys this shit anymore
To be fair you can sync iPods using Foobar, and it will automatically convert your flac archives to a smaller-but-still-high-quality format, which is pretty ideal. Plus dat amplifier, my S4 is honestly unusable with my m50x's if I want a loud volume.
Yeah they're still making them. Not sure about the newest nano, but my 3rd gen nano has a decent inbuilt DAC. Not quite classic tier, but close. Certainly better than my smartphone. I'd imagine the new nanos would have similar amp technology in them. The only ones I'd worry about are those tiny 6th gen nanos.
>It isn't that bad really.
The problem isn't that they aren't bad but that they aren't nearly as good as even the cheapest dedicated hardware. Even an eight year old Sansa Clip puts every smartphone player to shame, from sound quality to battery life. The only thing it fails on is the display.
