Thank you

Hello Sir
I have some questions.
1- what is the diffrence between "low pass" filters?

For #1 I'll leave for someone else to answer, but I can help with 2 and 3.

2> The SPDIF output is the coaxial digial output (it shares the line out port)  If you have a home stereo, for example, you can connect via digital and your home system will do the digital to analog conversion.  DoP is "DSD over PCM" which sends the DSD data directly to the other system for conversion.  This requires the other end of the digital connection support DSD playback.  D2P is DSD to PCM, which will convert and DSD/DSF files you play into PCM at the X3 instead of expecting the home equipment to understand DSD.  If you don't need a digital output to a home stereo then you don't need to worry about these at all.

3> ReplayGain is a system where a program on your computer scans your files and makes a notation in the ID TAG (so it doesn't alter the music itself) with a recommended playback volume, or gain.  The goal is to make really loud and really quiet tracks sound more even so you don't find yourself constantly changing volume between songs.

Hi, meegia, steep mode can reduce more noise. So the default setting is Steep. You know that most noise is in high frequence. Steep mode can reduce the noise well. Sorry that i couldn't offer professional explanation.

@ Yellow: thanks
So setting the Low Pass Filter to Gradual gives the most original playback then.

I use a 200 GB Lexar card and I have only hi-res tracks in it, mostly DSD files so with only a few GB left I have about 1000 tracks and everything is fine.
Don't know how it will work if you put in the card a lot of files, 200 GB is a lot of space to fill if you only use flac 16/44.1 files (or lossy files)
More tracks = slower UI

"Final firmware"? So the X3II will no longer be supported? I guess this means the X3III will be coming out this year?

Also, the bug with gapless playback that was present in the beta FW is still present, which is highly disappointing. I figured a stable release would not have bugs like that. When playing, there is a ~.2 second gap between songs, which is very annoying when listening to albums with songs that carry over from track to track.
