Fiio X1 v2 - anyone have this?
« on: November 30, 2016, 08:19:33 PM »
Anyone use a Fiio x1 gen 2? I just noticed this product the other day. If I'm not mistaken, it only has 1 sd slot (vs 2 on the x3 and x5). However, the unit runs for around ~100. Are there any other disadvantages to x1 gen 2 other than the single sd slot? I think I saw a review on Amazon that said it could benefit from a headphone preamp. I'm curious what the TS thinks.

I have one. Yes, one slot. Not a big deal for me cause I also have an X5 II. Wasn't aware that it ran so long. I also have a small FIIO amp paired with it. Even picked up a slick leather sleeve for it. Anyway, I find I use the 5 much more often, so I'm thinking of selling the X1 with amp and case.

Edit: mine is a version 1. Sorry.

one thing i have noticed about this thing is that gapless playback doesnt seem to work. Which is one of the reasons I got it. I guess this 2nd gen has a problem as I just found a 115 page thread at head-fi.org discussing it. I updated to the latest firmware which still doesnt address the problem. So anyone considering this device keep that in mind. I hope they fix it in firmware but youd think that would be a thing they would test

Interesting...I have the X3 v1 and this isn't an issue.  The X3 has served me well, but after using it habitually for at least the last two years, I'm a bit tired of the interface and just decided to switch it up. 

I just ordered the Astell and Kern AK Jr from B&H for $199 (open box version...the new version is $269).  Looking forward to giving it a whirl.  My expectations are a slight sound improvement and enhanced interface with the touch screen.

I have an X1 from about 1.5 years ago without bluetooth so I assume it is not v2. I am running firmware 1.4 and have the gapless setting turned on in the play settings - no issues with gapless playback here. Just wanted to note that this is not an issue with all versions of the X1.

the response I got from their support was that it will be fixed in a future firmware update   :banging head:

Also it doesn't read filenames correctly. Which is almost a deal breaker for me. Im pretty pissed that this thing sucks as much as it does considering the first generations didnt have these problems it seems

RE: File names

If im using etree standards like gd1984-10-14d1t01, gd1984-10-14d1t02 etc etc What it does is group all the tracks ending in 01, 02 etc so when playback happens it does this
gd1984-10-14d1t01
gd1984-10-14d2t01
gd1984-10-14d1t02
gd1984-10-14d2t02

I went back to my iphone for the time being because it was pissing me off so much

That sucks. Is that going to be fixed too?

BTW, does that occur if the files are tagged?
