I don't really pay too much attention to the album art before loading the songs onto the device, because I don't really care that much about it. So sometimes it shows up and other times it doesn't, but I assume that's because many of the albums I have are missing the artwork, not because the device is mishandling it.


You're a fucking monster.


Why would album art be important in a music device? My beloved iPod classic lost all sense of reality some time ago and I couldn't give less of a fuck

nah, that really irritates me. the tracks have gotta have artwork and it's gotta be the right artwork or i get IRRITATED.

I'm going to buy the PXC 550 Sennheisers. Bluetooth. Noise cancelling. Over the ear.

You usually can't go wrong with Sennheisers. Unless you buy the $10 cans but then that's on you.

I loaded up my 2 256 GB SD cards last night. Installed them and formatted right through the x5. (Awesome)

Downloaded dbpoweramp to tag files.

This thing is starting to get my rocks off. I love it.

My next step is to figure out if I can adjust volume equally across my entire catalog.

How are you liking your Fiio X5? Any issues?

I am absolutely loving it. I have roughly 11,000 FLAC files on it at the moment and it lags every once in while (in motion, not sound) but not enough to bother me. I usually turn it on and let it play through an album. I've had no issues with artwor since the first couple of weeks. The sound has been fantastic. I'm hearing layers of songs I've never heard before. It's incredible. Definitely worth the money.

I never looked into getting the volume equal across all songs, it just sounds too daunting of a task.

dMC r11.5 and the dMC FLAC codec (from Codec Central) would work just fine. You can do the entire set in one go, but it is recommended to test it with a few files first to make sure you don't get clipping. Also, note that normalization only makes quiet files louder, it does NOT quiet loud files.

When you right-click on your files and click Convert To, you would select FLAC from the drop-down list, and then click on "DSP Effects". You then add "Voume Normalization" (I think that is its name) to the left-hand side after you put in a percentage. The dMC help is better at explaining this than I am.

:shock: I love this place. Not sure if I can highlight all files and do this or if it had to be done folder by folder.

I would select say 3 folders and attempt it... it will either let you or not, and then it wouldn't take long to finish if it allows and then you can test results..

I'm not home so I don't have the full verbiage but it's something like "dbPowerAmp folder convert" when you right click on a folder. It opens up a batch program basically and you tell it to convert the entire thing. I do that when I download a full discography and it converts every music file in the associated folders. You can even tell it to do folder 1 2 and 5 and skip 3 and 4.
