Default A few problems with my new x-fi2

I just bought a new creative zen x-fi2 a few weeks ago, but I allready have some problems with it. I hope some of you will be able to help me.

First of all, some of the songs I have on my Zen sounds really bad. Just like the speakers in the included headphones were sprung. I know the headphones isn't broken. I know there's nothing wrong with the mp3 files, so it must be the Zen i Think. I have the crystalizer turned on (ca. 75%) and I have the EQ turned off.

My other problem is, that i got this oil-stain-like spot in the middle of the Zen's screen. Anyone have an idea of what it could be?

Check http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...ad.php?t=53377, it may shed some light on the screen issue, or you could at least join in and try and figure it out.

That help's of course, but the reason i bought the Zen X-fi is because of the x-fi crystalizer. Have anybody had the same problem??

Sony or Cowon DAPs will be better for you.

Any EQ including "X-fi" and "BBE" doesn't really improve the sound quality! It just somewhat sacrifice part of the sound quality to please your ear (but don't apply all these EQ ajustments for any Classical musics. )!

Go for Sony or Cowon DAPs if you really need some good EQ. X-fi just can't do the job. Creative's DAPs always focus on original recording sound.
