    It takes a very long for Zidoo to bring out a new FW including for UHD2000. :(

    I hope it will be a big one with some long due improvements/corrections: :p
    - USB port stability
    - Seamless Branching
    - Music Player 5 enhancements and corrections
    Many smaller issues.

    I remind the meaning of "soon" in Chinese: It will come one day for sure but still may take a while.
    The Zidoo X is "coming soon" too and that is after june 2020. :D

    Waiting also. Received the UHD 2000 two weeks ago. It had firmware 2.3.3.
    RS-232 is not working. I tried to reflash with initial image to see if i could fix the rs-232 issue to no avail. ...and now have 2.3.1 without having 2.3.3 somewhere to download.

    Fix the RS-232 please...and yep...seamless branching

    Promising changelist. Only seamless branching is not on it, but USB and Music Player 5 improvements are.

    Hope it will come with more goodies for the other models soon too.

    Maybe it is time then to connect an Optical Disc Drive to my Z9S once again to see how far it got now? I am surprised the amount of effort gets put into that. Must be doing DAE now to get CD Audio playing via SATA/USB3! Obviously this is really nice with UHD2000 as it will use the SABRE DAC for CD Audio then too. Frankly that is a missed feature for Zidoo X (no SATA only USB).
    My last test showed it functionally all working except for CD-Audio but having a very sluggish response for BD Menus. USB3 Optical drive was reported not to work always by others.
    Will update this once the new FW is available and testing has been done by me.

    We are developing seamless Branching music playback. And CD ripper function(Just for UHD2000 and X20 Pro).
    And the new firmware will greatly improve the scanning accuracy for music files.

    Thanks @mirror
    Sounds very good. This is what we were hoping for! :cool:

    So DAE (Digital Audio Extraction) will come only for the players with a SABRE DAC (and Zidoo X next year). I can understand that one. ;)
    Won't be able to test it then myself. :(

    Saw an inside picture of Zidoo X, looking really good with an impressive power section and a HDD bay too.

    By the way we need Seamless Branching also for Music Player. We normally refer to it then as Gapless Playback but technically seen the same programming/buffering challenge: Jumping from file to file unnoticed! :D

    Understood you wrong apparently as DAE works also on my X9S using this same FW. An Audio CD inserted will be found and played according. Did not try a CD with CD-Text yet)
    Probably real ripping (=converting to WAV/PCM is meant for X20 Pro and UHD2000) as unique feature?
    Nice, I might even be tempted to connect a CD-ROM drive to my player.

    The real challenge of seamless playback is in the switching between different sampling rates

    Hi Mirror any chance of a Z10 2.3.3 firmware for me to test out ?

    Good point! I can imagine. Normally Gapless Playback is done per album/folder and under that condition all should have the same sampling rates.
    Obviously user created playlists may contain anything. I need to check what other players do with these?

    I and I guess most of us already would be very happy with Gapless Playback for albums hence a sequence of tracks with all identical formats. A pause between different formats should be very acceptable including handling a mix of MP3 bitrates. Different PCM sample rates will go wrong anyway as (most?) amplifiers are not capable to switch gapless between different sample formats. MP3 bit rates on the other hand are invisible for amplifiers as they get 44.1 Khz decompressed PCM for all variants. Handling a mix of those, which is a lot more common, should be a lot easier.

    Missing the first few seconds on tracks is typically caused by the amplifier when the music player start/stop audio streams per track. Music Player 5.0 still does so currently, hence a problem for AMP's. It is possible to keep the stream active with idles as I have seen other music players doing so. Then the amplifier doesn't need to kick in per track anymore avoiding playback starting a fraction too late.

    I can't wait to test this new firmware and his gapless playback + improved scanning
