i havent even tried it. nor do i know how lol. wheres the fun in that though?
I'm more or less just curious how much pioneers algorithms have changed since my 880.......I hope a lot, cos autotune on it sucked in every aspect. The 880 would place yer center above the instruments, and the eq was funky......i havent even tried it. nor do i know how lol. wheres the fun in that though?

Ok, went back and tried it........uh, hell no........went from awesome to damn near unlistenable, lmao. The exact same results I had with the 880. So much for improved algorithms......I'm glad someone is having luck with it, but I'll stick with the manual tune.The auto EQ/TA process has been vastly improved since the old 800/880. The results are beyond impressive, at least for me. TA is a little more of an issue, it took a few tries to get auto TA to work well for my setup but once I figured out that method the results are the best I've ever had and I haven't touched it in ~16 months.
The only sure shot way is to find out by experimenting with it, if the player somehow manages to show itself as a mass storage device it just might work. IMHO though, i'd still prefer running either a USB drive/Hard drive or through an ipod since the p99 bypasses the ipod's DAC and processes the raw data itself.Hey dudes....got a question for you......
I have the P99RS....been enjoying it for several years.

I just bought a FiiO X5ii - going to have two 200GB micro SD cards in it - everything at 320 kbs AAC format.

I would like to connect this to my P99 instead of using the two iPods I currently am using (that are only a fraction full because I haven't had time to load them through iTunes).
I have tried using the 3.5mm to 2.5mm adapter for Aux 1 in the faceplate....Yuck! I had to turn up the volume in the X5 all the way and turn the P99 up most of the way....then if the faceplate were to close while the adapter is connected.....that would be a huge fail!
The X5 has coax/line out (3.5mm) - comes with a 3.5mm to coax female adapter that I can plug a digital coax cable to go from the X5 to a home DAC.
Digital cable adapter
Somewhere I saw a photo of a 3.5mm coax to stereo (left / right) RCA - that I'm sure could be useful for the RCA connection for the Aux 2 adapter for the P99
I would hate to buy the 3.5mm to RCA cable, then the CDRB10 piece for the back of the unit, and then it sounds worse than the iPod....or worse, it sounds like the 3.5mm to 2.5mm connection in Aux 1
Can anyone speculate whether it would work to connect the micro USB to the full size USB connection in the rear of the P99? I wonder if it would work like an external hard drive - roaming through the folders with the P99 remote, or if I would still use the X5 to find the tracks I want to hear?
cable like this
micro usb to USB cable
I know the easy answer is to fill up the iPods and use what I already have.....but to have 400 GB of music on one device would be nice. Then I could use the micro usb to USB cable to go into the cigarette lighter for charging the X5 on long trips.
