Hi all, I am just wondering if there will be any plans to upgrade the firmware of X5 III to accomodate to 2 X 512GB or even bigger mSD cards?

Also, is there any other DAPs with 2 card slots besides the X5 III?

Will help me decide to continue using the X5 or to upgrade. Very happy with it now although the lag is sometimes a tad irritating.

Thanks!

Currently have 2x 400GB cards in my X5-3.  Next upgrade if I choose to do so would be to go to 512GB cards so I too am curious.  Has anyone put a 512 card in the X5-3?

I did not know they can accomodate to 400GB cards now. That's good to know.

Few questions. Does your player lag? Which music app did you use?

I'm using Neutron now.

Anyway, will appreciate if anybody can also chip into the discussion. Am curious to see what's the  max cap the player can go.

Lag?  As in does the UI suck?  Why yes it does, has from the get go.  I have tried multiple apps and all have problems of one kind or another.  At the moment I am back and forth from Neutron to pure music mode. Neither offers anything close to a first rate experience.  Audio quality though is excellent, just a shame Fiio can't make their UI as good.

Yes, the software side of the X5 III is second rate. If inclined you can considerabely increase the responsiveness of the X5-III by disabling and/or removing Google and Fiio software (using Neutron as your player).

This is what I've done and haven't regretted it. I don't bother with Fiio's upgrades as they deal with the Fiio player itself (which has been removed) and the whole Google store/framework as been disabled as there's no need to continually upgrade Neutron either. The unit functions strictly as an interface to my music collection although it still retains Wifi and Bluetooth functionality.

If interested here's my prior post on the subject.

Also curious to know how many GB's can be stuffed into the double SD card slots. If anyone manages a 500GB card please post.

It's a bit late, but I'm running 2*400GB cards with Neutron mainly as there's no point in wasting time with the FiiO player. I also have the GoneMad Beta player installed tooas it supports Smart lists which are useful to create a quick Artist/Genre/Rating type list (and I can distinguish between Live/Studio recordings in my library)
