Well, well, well, the first 2 weeks of February 2018 has proven to be quite a run in terms of software updates.
First, Fiio issued an update for the X3 Mark III, and then came a mass-release of updates for ALL of their Android-based players. Shortly after, Shanling released updates for their M1, M2s, and M3s players too!
Last, but not least, is Fiio’s X1 2nd Gen. The X1 2nd Gen has had a few software issues from the get-go, but, to Fiio’s credit, they have been getting the fixes out there. The previous firmware upgrade (FW1.6.6) was released almost exactly 3 months prior to the new FW1.7.2 version.
The X1 2nd Gen has been out for nearly 18 months now, so a newer model is probably just around the corner too. Still, even if a new model is imminent, it’s great to see Fiio still releasing firmware updates for the current model. Let’s see what FW1.7.2 entails.
