im moving to san ramon so no more meetup for me. maybe out there instead.
Theres a monthly meetup for SMAC (southeast michigan audio club). their home boards are audiokarma, if you're interested. They simply have 1 volunteer set a date for the month and they have the meet at his place. at that point, everyone can either bring their own equipment or enjoy just what he has. its a basic barbeque setup, though they let people know what kind of equipment they'll be listening to and what songs they'll demo on the equipment. Generally its just like...
So bring your father's or don't show up. This is exactly what I was talking about. You cant please everyone, just set a date and see who shows up.
Honestly this has been going on for so long that I think it's a better idea to make it a small house party, get people on an invite list that can actually bring gear, and schedule it. Whoever can make it, will. Whoever can't can't. Put a cutoff date on the poll at least.
i think we all need to stop with the "i'll definitely show up". First of all, we need someone to commit to a certain date and a certain location. After that is set up, we can take a poll on who will or wont be there, set up an entrance fee (to help pay for food/rental facility) and see what happens. If someone owns a house, just have the get together there. There wont be more than 20 people showing up.
There was another guy in this thread that used a microSD -> SD ribbon adapter and managed to get an internal 128GB SD card working perfectly. It was still slow in terms of read/write (no usb3, about 4-8 MB/s transfer rates) but it worked without a hitch.I figure these new 128GB ones will be plug and play, assuming you can format them correctly.
I dont think people need gapless AND shuffle to work at the same time. I think its just that people normally have gapless enabled by default and dont want to disable it every time they want to use shuffle mode. Perhaps have the shuffle mode automatically ignore the gapless setting?The "old gapless playback" mode would either delete the ~2 seconds of empty space at the end of a track, or it would queue and buffer the next track. Maybe the default buffer size holds about 2...
Set the date on some weekend and I'll come.
im probably going to be unavailable on the 22nd because of a birthday but we might celebrate that at a different time too. dunno. the weekend directly after would be a better one.
i update using my 64 gig card. i never bother emptying the card first. it used to be that fw update was from onboard, not sd card. In any case, when you DO get a microsd card, make sure you get a card reader thingy too. The X3 read/write is pretty slow.
