    Okay. Might be a U1 Mini bug. My X1 is at 7.0, and tracks are in order. Let me get a new download from HDTracks and recheck it. However, I play everything with random shuffle so I wouldnít notice it unless I actually looked at the playlist.

    Hi. I write you for a question.

    Do you have compared the sound of the Lumin S1 with the Bryston BDP1?
    Which is better ?

    Thank you
