  • Incorrectly plays DSD256 sounding very distorted with lots of Really Load white noise (like a wrong tuned radio).
  • Missing support to M3U8 playlist files, CUE files, etc. Not able to find or play this files.
  • No gapless on DSD or lossy formats.
  • International characters (like ñ, á, é, ü, etc.) are showed with Chinese characters.
  • No volume limiter option: removed.
  • Navigation is much harder. Hitting UI elements to move back screens takes way to much effort (more clicks or taps) and results in incorrect inputs. In the older firmware, you could just go back to the main screen to pick playlists or your library, now it takes a good 4 or 5 clicks/taps to get back to that main screen.  
  • No VIPER effects: removed because the agreement of cooperation between FiiO and ViPER's Audio has expired.
  • A lot of sortings issues: lists not correctly order alphabetically.
  • Scrolling issues when using the letters on the right of the scroll-list.
  • Missing information about bitrates during play, etc.
  • Missing option to find album art.
  • Find Lyrics doesn't works very well.
  • Album Art is not through the whole screen, that was more beautiful.

This new firmware is more a downgrade than an upgrade.

- I do not see any more the possibility to look for cd cover or lyrics.

- Fiio link does not work with IOS because they still have an old verion of the app in the apple store.

...and I confirm , me too, all the other problems you have listed.

No news from Fiio....

I could not agree more, a Major Downgrade!!! Hopefully all the issues you mention will be addressed by FiiO but somehow I doubt it

I am also having problems with missing track numbers on about 70% of high-resolution FLAC albums. Since I haven't heard of other people with this problem it must be something unique about my system although my tracks were made with the most widely-used FLAC rippers like ExactCopy, JRiver and Cue Ripper.

I completely disagree that this is a downgrade. This release has some issues just as the last release did but the sound quality and speed are greatly improved. I'm pretty sure they rushed this out the door due to the Chinese New Year when nobody works so we will get an update when they get back.

I agree with Dilburt. From an X7ii point of view I have found that sound quality and speed are very much improved. Yes, the bugs are annoying - and I accept that other users are much more affected than I am because they use advanced features which I do not use.

But, it had been a long time since the previous upgrades, and progress through beta testing has been slow and frustrating. So, personally (selfishly) I am happy that the releases have been rushed out (as it seems) before Chinese New Year holidays. If they had not been, I guess that we would have had to wait until March - or later. At least now FiiO will be focused on getting bug-fix releases out quite quickly. And in the meantime most of us are able to enjoy some welcome performance improvements.

Another problem I have found in FiiO Music 1.0.8:
Can't find Settings options for: Personalized display and Media library update

I am not enjoying.  
Since I bought the just at the time new  X5iii, this gear has a lot of problem. The biggest is the management of the internal SD and NAND memory ....it is better to not install other applications because is immediate out of space. It is slow anyway.
I bought it, before I was with an X5ii dead without a reason, because I needed two slots and Viper, now X5iii is already an old gear.
Ok, yes this new firmware can be a good thing, but, if it takes 2 years, who cares. Fiio link is good like in Hiby but why to declare something that not works for everybody??? Fiio gimme at least the right app in the Apple store!!! The equalisation should be improved... try to copy a curve in the equaliser using your finger on the minuscule dots...you will became crazy, or...approximative.
In a smart world, you should touch a dot to select it and than use the side volume wheel roller...

...fortunatly the soud is always good. Amen

While i do like the new look of the music application, navigation is mow much harder. Hitting UI elements to move back screens takes way to much effort and results in incorrect inputs. In the older firmware, you could just go back to the main screen to pick playlists or your library, now it takes a good 4 or 5 clicks to get back to that main screen.
I use the search function and now it is mostly broken.  You have to go all the way back to the main screen to use it... also there is no way to dismiss the keyboard so it covers the bottom half of the list of tracks....

Sorry but this is a downgrade because i can't play or enjoy music with this firmware:

  • Basically i always plays music using M3U8 or CUE playlist. With this new firmware I can't play or enjoy music in my playlists. This runs and plays very well with all previous firmware versions.

  • I have a lot of DSD256 albums that i can't play or enjoy with this new version because i only hear bad noise. This sounds very well (incredible well) with all previous firmware versions.

  • I have a lot of classical concerts albums in DSD that playing it without gapless is a bad terrible experience destroying the perfectly play and enjoying that album.

With all previous versions i can play or enjoy music very well. With this new version, with less options, features and a lot of bugs i can't play or enjoy music in a music player devices.

It's not about that this firmware has some issues, is about less options, features and a lot of bugs.

It's clearly a downgrade.

The playlists aren't working because of the problem with alphabetic sorting in storage mode but other than that I think you may have a problem with your card formatting. I don't put DSD files on portable devices because they use too much space and require more read processing than other formats. However, I have some on my Meridian digital home system so I put one on my X5-III so I could see what you are talking about (btw, it took almost as much space as 3-4 lossless recordings in FLAC 24/96 format. The DSD files played fine for me without any noise.

If you want to play these files you will need very fast cards formatted using FAT32. Grab an SD card capable of something close to 100 MB/Sec and format it using a FAT32 utility from someone who can format cards over 32 MB then put a DSD file on there to see if it plays. Each read from an exFAT formatted card probably takes twice as many cycles as FAT32 and NTFS probably takes more than twice again that many cycles.

Good luck,

D

I think you may have a problem with your card formatting.

The problem with DSD256 is a known bug in the new firmware when decoding and playing that files, as many other users have already reported. Is not a problem with the card formatting or with the file format.

I have more than 250 GB. of DSD64, DSD128 and DSD256 albums in microSD card and plays very well on all previous versions firmwares of FiiO X7 MKII . The new firmware plays well DSD64 and DSD128 but not DSD256. Also gapless not run for DSD or all lossy formats in the new FW as explained in the new firmware manual. Gapless runs very well in all formats, including DSD, in all previous versions firmwares of FiiO X7 MKII. I repeat again the new firmware is clearly a downgrade.

I was able to reproduce this problem on a different DSD file. Hopefully, you have reported this to FiiO support since it won't get fixed by complaining in the Forums. Developers never receive reports from the forums since the moderators aren't here to file bug reports for users.

Good luck,
