2. Changed the UI of the VU meter and lyrics search;

5. Fixed issue where the albums under the Artist category might be displayed in incorrect order;
6. Fixed issue where the default sorting method of a newly created playlist would be Alphabetical order;
7. Fixed issue where the DSD file might fail to play when output via Bluetooth in some cases;
8. Improved the jitter issue when fast forward/rewind or play/pause music;
9. Fixed issue where the sound might be abnormal when playing some mono or 5.1 channel tracks;
10. Fixed issue where some MP3 files could not be played;
11. Fixed issue where the embedded album art of some APE tracks could not be displayed;
12. Fixed issue where the playback would not restart form the begging when pressing the Previous button after playing the first track in a CUE sheet for more than 10 seconds;

OTA update was going to take more than an hour (over fiber network). No way am I going through this long wait again. Instead, I did a manual update. From download the zip file to complete update took less than 5 minutes. Bravo!

Hi KopiOkaya,
At present, we upload the firmware update zip file to the Ali cloud server. If you are the first one to download the firmware file via OTA on the certain area, then it will take a little long time to get that file from our Ali could server to the one which is closest to you. But after then, other customers who are in the same area will be able to download the firmware file quickly.

Btw, you mentioned that you did a manual update, so you finally downloaded the zip file by "Technical support"->"Firmware Update"->"Online Upgrade"->"CheckUpgrade"?

No, I downloaded the zip file with my PC and transferred it to the X5III's root directory using DK1 dock.

Technical support > Firmware Update > Local Upgrade > select FW zip folder

I learn from past Android phone upgrade mistake NEVER save the firmware update folder in MicroSD card. If the card has problem, your upgrade is pretty much toast.

Hi chatpong,
Kindly go to try to CLEAR on FiiO Music app by "Settings" -> "Apps" ->"ALL"(Slide left to show ALL list) -> "FiiO Music". After done, please tell me whether the error message will still appear or not.

Actually, the issue you mentioned already was fixed on the firmware - 20170804 version. We just also tested the FW1.1.8 some times, and FiiO Music can run normally at Black theme.

Any test result, please share with us.

There is still a very annoying issue: when I select many 192Khz/24bit (bought from HDTracks) song, the player begins to play and after 1/2 seconds there is always a small silence gap then the reproduction continues. This happens with most songs of my library. It's very very annoying for a dedicated player. The same tracks are playing fine on my Samsung smartphone with the standard music player.

Is there an option to play "ALL SONGS" when selecting one artist? I can't seem to find this function, if it is there. There are a few artists in my collection who have splits and thus single tracks in single folders sometimes.

Still many important issues with this new firmware:
1. Resume doesn't work properly. If you press pause then play after few seconds, the player plays a random track of another Author...
2. Alphabetical order is not correct in Scan songs folder selection.
3. There is a small silence gap after about 1 second from the beginnig of many 192K flac tracks.
4. When you skip sometimes the song is not played from the beginnig but the player skips about one second.

While this is not as important as some of the other issues mentioned above, I was wondering where the app pulls its data from? Half of the album covers assigned using the app are incorrect.

Hi Haoyuanren,
So finally, you can download the new firmware into X5III via OTA, right?

Eventually, though I had no idea how it happened.  It continue to fail and I had to resume, about 10x at least.

I have not contributed much to the forum here perhaps ever and in a while.
However, late last week I did update to this new firmware. Though it was quite
slow, perhaps due to the 2.4Ghz link to some xfinity hotspot thing and not my
normal wi-fi at home, it did download and apply and update.
I have not noticed any obvious problems and did see one improvement
with back to back songs that are segued. I played two songs segued
together and did not notice any problem. the transition from one song
to the other was smooth unlike before.  Again using the Fiio native music
player app. I do still use Neutron as well.  I think VLC music player was
choppy so for me I just use Fiio Music and Neutron.

In addition, the device is still  a bit slow to get things set up
with the wi-fi, bluetooth, connecting to speakers, and starting the
music apps. This is no different than before and I always said
give yourself about 10 minutes to get things going smoothly.
there is still some lag when tapping on the screen to back track,
pull down the menu to control things and can be a bit frustrating.
I am used to it by now and just deal with it and just think it is a slow
processor and something that cannot be controlled too much even
with updates. Just keep the apps on the device to a minimum is the
best you can do and just have some patience.

Well that is all for me to report. I wish everyone well here.
I could still be looking to sell this red Fiio player and getting that new
Fiio X7 Mark III one when the prices come down some from cellphone
type costs of $650 or so.  Buying the new one seems like buying
a Samsung or LG smartphone and you cannot make calls from it
not even using software sip phone apps such as Ooma, Magic Jack
or Vonage... there is no microphone but the apps just do not fully load
or work on this device. I tried them but of course with no microphone
it was futile anyway.  I even thought that maybe the microphone via
a bluetooth headset would work (I have Creative Labs headset with
microphone) and it did not.
