    And a different software updates to the Zidoo X10 etc
    To save confusion id start an official owners thread .

    Why not setup as a Zidoo Z series thread and avoid the confusion caused with the multiple X threads?!

    Thanks

    Can't see a reason to upgrade as yet, but will see what the development and support roadmap for the x series looks like before deciding.

    Hi!
    The Z series will arrive with Android 7.x pre-installed.
    At the same time, the X series will also be updated to Android 7.x and both X and Z series will have the same ueser interface.
    Since it was announced that the X series would be updated to Android 7, the only "news" is the time where this will take place (with the release of the Z series).

    If you check here again you will also find the first hi-res photos of the Z9S ;)

    Well i thought the X series was going 7.1 at much later date after the Z 20 etc were updated .

    But the Z10 / Z9s coming out was not expected so soon and made me think the old X series may not be getting it .
    Hopefully yes .

    the production of series X will stop or is already stopped, it will not keep the series X and the series Z.

    And I guess they'll put all their effort on the new serie Z about the next FW, we will have maybe 1 or 2 FW for the serie X and after it will be finished and it's normal.

    and about android 7 with series X, I have doubts.

    that's what I think

    Thats my way of thinking .
    Will have to wait and see but it looks that way.

    Or no one will upgrade to the new .

    Is this correct ?
    As thought it would be roughly the same as the X10 unit but with added Height because of feet fitment .

    I will stick my neck out and say width Dimensions are totally wrong on the spec sheet out and whats been banded about .
    They seem exactly the same as the X10 give or take .
    No way is it 302mm wide .

    Id imagine Height maybe a few mm taller due to feet . 7DDF0662-24B6-4387-989A-5641B65FB093.jpeg 7DDF0662-24B6-4387-989A-5641B65FB093.jpeg

    I suppose it can be a cosmetic way of thinking of theses new boxes out if you like it to blend in with your other equipment go x20 / Pro

    If you prefer the smaller look go Z10 / 9s

    But yes the new Z10 will more or less do the same as such apart from the SAudio xlr connection side of things .

    But good to have choice / looks connectivity etc .

    I was hoping for a Z10 sample coming my way to promote this thread like the X10 thread but sadly i dont think so . :(

    I know it's early days (and I will ask the question again) but is it worth upgrading from my X10 to the Z10?

    My two cents ......

    Id imagine they will slowly drop support of the X series
    Concentrate on the Z Series line .
    Z10 will have Android 7.1
    Latest 1296 chipset with more connectivity .

    Id imagine that pause before playback commences should be gone ?
    Better security on Android 7.1 ?

    Upgrade is always better at least you know it will future proof you for a few years as such .

    a better looking unit

    Always good to have a new Gadget to play with :)

    Additional features with 7.1 HDR10 + ?

    Better more robust power supply with led light

    IMO No.

    I think the X10 carries out the same functions as the Z10 and the quality of playback will be the same. Basically the same unit.

    I intend to carry on using the X10 until a unit comes out that is a big improvement over the X10 and not just a makeover.

    so going on from here what problems does the x range have that they can't solve reading between the lines i don't think the x range will have the android 7 update just z range why have two boxes doing the same thing? i was going to pull the trigger on the x20 pro but now i can't see it getting much more updates if it has problems

    If read right
    The X20 / pro will get updates
    Android 7.1
    Music Player 3.0
    Amongst numerous firmware upgrades

    And the X10 / 9s will get a few more updates
    Then less as time goes by as they concentrate on the new boxes going forward .

    X10 / 9 should get music player 3.0 im hoping .

    Android 7.1 should come October time for X20 / pro and Z10 / Z9s

    Thats my thoughts .

    You are completely right, the new Z10 will have the same video quality as the X10. And for sure the same banding problems, the new chipset doesn´t worth the upgrade.

    The X10 banding can be seen in 4K but is not a problem for me, my TV is only a 55" Samsung KS8000 so very rarely do we watch ultra HD blu-ray on it.

    None of the 13TB of films and TV series stored on the X10 is 4K so we enjoy a smooth, clear and banding-free viewing.

    If Zidoo drop support on X10

    Then we may not get
    Music player 3.0
    Of course Android 7.1
    H.T.v2 updates
    Numerous firmware updates which may add other options further down the line HDR10 + ?

    But if peolpe are happy on x10 thats all that matters
    But nothing better than receiving or upgrading firmware on our units .

    We will soon know if the X10 get any of the above .

    Using that logic: if Zidoo drop their support on the X10 a year or so after releasing it, then it stands to reason they could also drop support on the Z10 a year after releasing it.

    Not of course that I would immediately purchase a new version of the X10 because I was frightened support would be dropped ;) :)
