Firmware 1.4 on X3 ii crushes/distorts DSD files reverting back to 1.3 resolves all issues. Is there a bug?
It appears the quality of music drops dramatically and the crisp sounds are no longer there, plus music that was fine now has the defined "Sibilance" It was so bad I didn't test all the different files in my collection. Any thoughts?

To the dsd issue, i guess it is the sd card compatible issue. May i know what is the brand and the format of your sd card? Pls format it to FAT32 or exFAT to test.
The sound quality should not be changed as we don't change the hardware.

Well the card I have supports 4k video quality. SanDisk Extreme 64GB MicroSDXC UHS-1 Card with Adapter (SDSQXNE-064G-GN6MA) Like I said firmware 1.3 causes no issues. I must revert back and keep it at that firmware and everything is fine. Btw I am using DSD128 files 5.6. However it seems like the default EQ changed I have that set to none as well but it sounds like EQ is on. Any thoughts?   FAT32

Do you have problems only with DSD 128 files or even with DSD 64 files? I've a lot of DSD 64 files and with fw 1.4 the sound is perfect to me (except some rare and random stutters), I will search for some DSD 128 demo file to test.

EQ is invalid if the sample rate is over 48khz.
