To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Awesome product at an amazing price. When you add an amplifier with the Fiio, the sound is out of this world. The bass is the best feature of the Fiio. I do not regret making this purchase. I should mention that I had a little difficulty installing the memory cards. Not that simple. Something Fiio should look into. Other than that I would highly recommend the Fiio.
It can't seem to handle short song files, the "gapless" playback is laughable, it often played an entirely different songs than the one I picked, it crashed all the time, the interface was sluggish and glitchy. More than once, I picked a song, it played 11 seconds of silence, then the first half of an entirely different song, then part of the right song, then crash, reboot, and completely fail to play the song completely at all after that. They allow third party software to be used, but for whatever reason it doesn't sound close to as good as the proprietary software, pretty much no better than a phone. If Fiio hired some real programmers they would have something special on their hands. Until then, give this a pass.
When using apps like spotify, player becomes extremely slow (no other apps opened). Spotify shuts down or wont open. The worst thing is thats since bought, I was never able to connect to pc (or laptop) through usb clable. I have to transfer using 3rd apps like Airdroid, which is very slow and unconvenient. Would not buy again from this brand.
