Edited by FiiO-Shadow at 2017-5-5 17:42

The following changes and improvements have been made to the FW1.1.5 compared to the FW1.1.4

1. Added SPDIF out settings for DoP/D2P switch (under Settings->Audio settings);        
2. Added In-Vehicle mode;        
3. Added sorting tracks by date added in the playlist;        
4. Added the Google account settings;        
5. Added the System Email application;        
6. Improved the Search function (now when clicking on an album/artist in the search result list, it will take you directly to the corresponding album/artist list);        
7. Improved the track loading method in the All Songs list;        
8. Improved the display of long track titles/file names;        
9. Fixed issue where some third-party apps could not scan for the local music;        
10. Fixed issue where some FLAC/AAC tracks were played abnormally;        
11.Fixed issue where the Resume function would not work with the iSO tracks;        
12. Fixed issue where the dynamic wallpaper will be resetted to the default wallpaper after switching from Pure music mode to Android mode;
13. Fixed issue where the tracks would be played in incorrect order if clicking the Play button beside an artist to play it;        
14. Fixed issue where the currently played artist/genre would not be highlighted under the Artist/Genre category;        
15. Fixed issue where the duration of the APE track was displayed incorrectly.        
16. Miscellaneous bug fixes        

Note: When scanning a very large music library, it's suggested to use the "Scan selected folders" function to do multiple scans and scan for a limited number of songs each time, so to prevent the exceptions of data overloading.

Sorting tracks by date added in the playlist is good, but what if I want to add a full album (s) to the playlist, do you expect me to add them song by song? I don't understand why it's hard to implement simple features  in the software as in iPod!

X5 gen3  is good but it is the small stuff in the software that makes it behind.
Fiio still cannot match Apple for the software.

LOL - Apple has 116,000 employees, might account for the inability of FIIO to match Apple.

You can add a full album to a playlist. When viewing the list of albums, slide the album you wish to add to the right and three icons will appear. Tap the middle icon, then select the playlist you wish to add the album to. No need to get angry at FiiO because you didn't read the manual.

Hello. In Russian, point of the settings "multifunction input" isn't truly translated. It duplicates the translation of the In-line remote point

Creating a playlist that reserves the order of songs in an album is a simple linked list data structure that any first year computer science student can implement.

I updated the firmware for the X5 3rd Generation audio
device; and while I am no longer having problems
playing all files like before, I am not seeing the metadata
album art that are embedded in the FLAC files.
Before the upgrade I was seeing such, but now after solving
one problem , another seems to have arisen though not
major--- it would be nice to see the album art again if you
can fix this or tell me what settings need to be implemented.

Thank you

I have finally relieved my frustrations with constant crashing, long load times, no album art, no sort by date added (folders) by moving over to poweramp.

Yes, this latest firmware seems to suck.
The device is very slow now and is a pain to use and play
music in Android mode. And even the pure music mode there
is lag.

I was seeing album art prior to this latest firmware but  some songs would not
play.  So I updated.  All the songs seem to play but lost the album art that is
embedded in the FLAC  files.  A Fiio person asked me to send 2 FLAC files,
like they did not test this prior to release? These seem to be bad engineers
and I feel I wasted $320 on this dumb device. It has or had potential but
the software is just awful lately to control this thing playing music and viewing
the metadata associated with FLAC.  No one should experience frustration
when listening to music and this device has become just awful to use.
It lags when trying to select the next song or hit the back or return button.
I just don't know.

Why would FIIO engineers ask me for a FLAC files to address the
issue about embedded metadata containing the album art?

I tried poweramp and , though it is slow probably due to a bad hardware
device (the processor is slow), it at least shows the album art in the flac files.
The native software (that purple FIIO player... the device is in another room charging for me to check)
for this latest firmware does not show anything like it used to.
Bad engineers ... Don't trust items from China. I wonder if I can get a refund?
Or Maybe I can get lucky going back to old firmware?


Hi, good day to you.
Could you please inform us the firmware version on your X5III? Is it the latest firmware FW1.1.5?

When playing FLAC songs, the album art can not display when running FW1.1.5? This problem is just for FLAC file, but not other formats files?
And this issue will not happen on FW1.1.4?

If you are convenient, please send one or 2 FLAC files to us for test.
Looking forward to your reply.

Have a nice day!

Best Regards,
FiiO Customer Service

Fiio  customer support asked me yet again to send them
a FLAC music audio file.  I think this could be a copyright
violation and I do not want to get in trouble with the music
industry.  FIIO should have tested this out before asking a
customer for data that may be improper and unlawful to
distribute or share (remember Napster?)...

All I know is the previous firmware had no problems displaying
the embedded art work in the FLAC files but it had problems playing
files , songs consistently. Before I could play the songs in top folders
but it would not play subsequent files on the card making me think
at first the problem was with the 256GB microSD card becoming
corrupt. I upgraded to latest firmware and though the song playing was
solved, it broke the display of metadata/artwork.
Note; MP3 files played , the device seems to show that artwork.

Other issues I have with this device that have bugged me from the
beginning:
0) The device seemed to crash or reboot itself at random times
or I got a message Fiio Music is not responding do you wish to
wait or close it ... reminds me of Windows applications: non responsive
script or that spinning beach ball on Apple Mac computers.
1) It takes too long to power the device on
2) It seems sluggish when tapping keys on the unit to go back, or
return or to exit or to play the next song at times.
3) With this latest firmware : there seems to be no option to
display the album art work in the FLAC files like before And
Fiio support is not assisting me to figure out if it is just a setting
or the device is broken with latest firmware with regard to album art

4) It seems PowerAmp works better on this device than the native
Fiio Music app so I may take a chance and just explore other 3rd party
software and / or even purchase PowerAmp for more functionality.


5) Playing music should be an enjoyable , non-frustrating event and this
device at times seems to stress me out... that I go back to just streaming music
from a real computer, more powerful computer with better processing and
more control using a mouse (and full-sized keyboard).
Dear name withheld due to privacy ,

Sorry. Do you click the screen to make it show the album cover? It will be great to send us one file to test.

Have a nice day!


Best Regards,
FiiO Customer Service

Also, can FIIO outsource this device or the software development of
this FIIO X5 3rd generation to Japan? Sony?

I think the Japanese would or could do wonders with this device as it has
lots of potential but just seemingly bad software imitators from China or
wherever. Could Taiwan get involved or is it already?

Can this be sold to a more reputable company for quality and excellence
like Sony Electronics?

Apple is a kind of a Chinese company, maybe Apple can improve on this?

In addition to poweramp working well with this device,
consider using VLC for Android as well.
VLC is free and I use it for Mac and Windows for streaming
audio files (namely FLAC). I think one can even create a
streaming radio station where others can attach to the stream.

VLC also shows the album art without issue.

So there is another alternative and now I am ready to
move forward while Fiio Music player is being fixed?
or just forget it altogether.

Vehicle Mode and the K5 dock.

When connecting device to a computer, the vehicle mode automatically causes the device to start playing music.
After removing device from computer, docking with K5, powering on K5, the device will again start the music app and begin playing music.
Turn off the K5 and the device will power down, and switch to charging mode.

So far, all as expected. However, powering on the K5 again will NOT start the music app on the device, device just sits in charging mode.

Remove the player to use in portable mode, re-dock with K5, power on, and again device will only start to charge.
Music app will not start without manually holding the power button on the device after powering on the K5.

The only time powering on the K5 results in the music app starting on the device appears to be immediately following its connection to a computer. Once it has been powered down on the K5, the K5 will not start the music app again until it has been connected to a computer once more.

I guess the above scenario is not expected behaviour.
Is there a setting I'm missing, or is this how the vehicle mode option currently works with the K5?

The K5 and DK1 handle line out in the same way. Your X5iii sends a line out signal to the dock and the dock receives it. If you want a fixed line out level, you need to set a fixed line out level on your X5iii. I have both a DK1 and a K5, I tested my X5iii with both of them with variable and fixed line out to confirm this information for you.

Update:
Though I cannot seem to view the album art that is embedded within the
FLAC audio files (note : VLC, PowerAmp and MXplayer all have no problems
displaying the album art), I have finally found a useful purpose for the
native Fiio Music player that does not work for me as far as displaying album art.
The Fiio Music Player seems to be useful as a karaoke streaming device
downloading and showing/scrolling through the lyrics of the song. It even
nicely highlights in bolder blue or something as the song moves along.

I kind of enjoyed it 2 nights ago in the car listening to some Carpenters songs.

So there you have it...

This Fiio device is quite functional, just do not have too many apps downloaded.
It is an alternative to using a phone or tablet as a video, audio streaming device:
I had fun running Slingbox to watch my Cable TV (just need internet connection),
running Youtube as well and of course listening to my entire library of music CDs
all compressed (lossless) using FLAC on two 256 GB microSD card and some songs
on the internal 32GB flash drive.  It is a nice device to stream audio at a close range
to any bluetooth receiving device (headphones, soundbars, bluetooth receiver adapters
like smartbeak, Anker, Naxa , etc, that connect via audio cable to a large stereo system
or speakers)....


Hopefully one day FIIO will tell me how to view the album art embedded in FLAC
files or it will fix this feature in the future.

Thank you for your assistance.
