I think the RMAA tests are useless on the H300. They only test to 15KHz. I am sure my ears are not lying to me when I say that there is a *sharp* roll off after ~17Khz on the H300. Other than that, I love the sound.

Yes this is true. You will need to buy a mass storage device compliant memory card reader and use it to read/copy pictures from your memory stick instead of plugging your camera directly into the H300. A small inconvenience.


For those of your interested, there is a cool link in my sig on how to build a battery pack for the H300, as well as enable USB on the Go for the US H300 models.

No they don't they test past 20,000 the last line after 10,000 is the 20,000 one. So maybe the roll your hearing is even higher..

You can identify 17khz harmonics?

I was talking about the other thread you linked that posts the H300 results, not the H100.

firmware and sound

st5150:

What version of the firmware are you using?
I read somewhere in misticriver that different versions of firmware sound different. I did not try changing the firmware myself as I already skinned my firmware. The difference according to those threads is not the volume cap of the european versions, but seems to be more of a different sound overall (perhaps different decoding software/decoders). From what I read 1.27K sounds more open, and European firmware 1.06 more dynamic. Different firmware may also be the reason many people find these players with different sounds (some say colored, even though charts show neutral).

Changing the firmware may improve the sound, or it may make it worst.

The h300 uses the same dac as the h100. All the hardware is the same except for the video processor. Why would it be any different?

editL What other thread?

Mr Iriver- I use firmware 1.27K.



wanderman - Things like board lay out, different brand passive components, etc can alter the sound output, but I do agree with you that the bulk of the sound signature would remain the same to the human ear. With that said, you're right. I got my threads confused. There is no other thread.

Is there anyone who can recommend a battery for this player?

post #40 of 40

I'd recomend this one :

 

http://www.amazon.com/2200mAh-Li-pl-Battery-iRiver-H110/dp/B004WLOALS/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1379664414&sr=8-3&keywords=h340+battery

 

Bought this along with a new HDD, works fine.
