Dear X7 users,

In October 2016, the Android 5.1 was finally available on FiiO X7. To satisfy your needs, we optimized the Android 5.1 system frame and redesigned the audio architecture. The new firmware solved some leftover problems on FW2.0 (Android 4.4.4), improved the SRC (sampling rates conversion) for third-party apps and also added some new features, which was well accepted by many of our users.

To live up to your attachment and support to FiiO and X7, our software team has been working hard to optimize the firmware and we already have 24 versions of firmware updates up to now. In every new firmware, we strived to solve the problems you mentioned and add some new functions after taking your needs into consideration. However, apart from the X7's firmware, our software team also has to work on the firmware of our other products, so we're sorry that we only released the new firmware in beta version, in hope of collecting your accurate feedback and then conducting deep optimization on it. Hereby, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all our X7 users. Thank you so much for your support and patience!

Over the last few months, our software team has solved most of the leftover problems. Meanwhile, we have added some new functions after analyzing your feedback and suggestions. So, here comes the official firmware (Android 5.1) for X7.

Statements before upgrade:

1. If you have not yet upgraded the firmware to the FW3.xbeta, that is to say, your X7 is still running Android 4.4.4, then please download the X7 firmware upgrade tool package and use the upgrade tool to upgrade the firmware on Windows computer, and here is the video instruction: click here.

2. If your X7 is FW3.1.9_beta/FW3.2.0_beta/3.2.1_beta, you can upgrade the X7 via OTA directly.  If the X7 is already running Android 5.1 but not FW3.1.9_beta/FW3.2.0_beta/3.2.1_beta, then you need to download the OTA firmware package, transfer it to the X7 or micro SD card, and upgrade manually through the Technical support app on the X7. Here is the instruction: click here (see method 2: Manual update via update zip file).

The following changes and improvements were made to FW3.3.0(Android 5.1) compared to FW2.0(Android 4.4.4):

System update:

1. No SRC for third-party music applications;
2. Added support for Bluetooth apt-X;
3. Added the Google account settings;
4. Added SPDIF out settings for DoP/D2P switch (under Settings->Audio settings);

7. Improved the USB DAC delay;
8. Improved the power consumption of standby and music play, playtime can last for 90 min longer.
9. Improved the stability of Google Play;
10. Changed the boot animation,the default wallpaper and the UI for USB DAC.

5. Added the function of Play through Artist/ Genre/Album(turn ON the Play through folders);
6. Added option to display the songs by album under the Genre category (you can click the mode icon below the guitar-like Genre category icon to switch the display method);
7. Added album art and lyrics display on lockscreen (can be enabled/disabled in FiiO Music->Settings->Lockscreen album art/Lockscreen lyrics);
8. Added option to auto-match/manually search for and delete lyrics & album art;
9. Added playlist backup function (the backup playlist file--.cfg file will be stored under the directory \internal_sd\FiiOMusic);

P.S.  Some DLNA severs may not work well with X7 on this firmware 3.3.0.  We will try to fix it by future update as soon as we can.

Thank you for this release.  It addresses my amp power-on delay complaint (at least in the limited testing I've done) which is awesome.

It also seems to have adjusted the audio levels a little bit, which I find quite pleasing.  With the 3.2 betas, I was getting some mild clipping (seemingly only on the right channel) in certain songs.

I hadn't had time to do testing to see if it was my IEMs (DUNU dn2002) or the player but since the update I've listened to some problematic tracks and they all sound much better.

Thanks again for all of the improvements and I look forward to seeing what comes next.

Hello

I did the update and I was happy because the internal memory at 1GB is really too small.
But as you see, my internal memory is still 1 GB. How to make it become 2 GB?
Thank you.

Anyone get an external DAC to work with the X7?  UAPP sounds horrible even with forced 16 bit enabled.  Tidal doesn't sound that good either.  This is the first time I tried to use an external dac and man does the X7 need some work regarding the use of an external DAC.

Hello Fred,
Do a clean install with the upgrade tool.

Thank you for your answer.
I have downloaded X7_Firmware_Upgrade_Tool_with_FW3.3.0.zip

I use Internal Update Tool, but when I try to install it, nothing happens when I select this file.

Perhaps I have already installed X7-FW3.3.0 firmware?

I tried ton install a previous version (3.2.1) but it's failed.

How can I do a clean install ?

Thank You

Doesn't appear anything updated with DLNA playback.

Everything else looks good.  Thanks for the time added sorting of the playlist.
Get the DLNA sorted out and add Replaygain and I think it's finished.
Thanks!

On the servers that kind of work the tracks still show over 5 hrs. each.  Still in A-Z order.  Plex server still doesn't show tracks.  Playback is kind of flakey.  DLNA still needs a lot of work.  Until it is fixed I just use Neutron player app which works perfectly.  I use "network" playback instead of DLNA in Neutron as it works flawlessly for playback of 96khz or less files as wireless throughput is limited.   Network share playback would also be nice in the FIIO player.
Thanks!
