Sansa Fuze 12 Gb??????

Found on Ebay UK: Sansa Fuze 12 Gb !

Can't find anything on Sansa's official Website...

And the packaging is different from the 8 Gb player I just got, but it might just be an update.

This a 8gb's version with a µSD 4Gb.

µ = micro

µSD = microSD

Oh I see.

Wow! Sansa.....

A good title for this thread.

I have a 4gb Clip and an 8gb Fuze with an 8gb card.

I docked the Fuze as a source for my office system and have been happy ever since.

IMHO the only reason for the Fuze over the Clip is the dock and maybe the expansion card (after all, how much can you scroll through). When ever I want to go portable, I grab the Clip. It's so small you don't even notice it.

Oh, the sound quality.... It's Great!

USG

(btw, the little black square of electrical tape on the dock is covering one of those annoyingly bright blue LEDs)

Better than an iPod with an amp? That's a bold statement!
Maybe I should give one of these a shot.

Probably a fake. He says in the description its made by "Samdisc" instead of Sandisc, unless he typo'd, but i think its a copy company thing from China or something.

Samdisc..........that's classic!

Well, I've been using this thing for about a month and my admiration continues to grow. Detailed, warm reproduction through all sound ranges without being overly analytical or harsh. It drives my venerable, 20+ year old MDR-V6's without an amp quite nicely and without any bass rolloff. When using FLAC files this thing is every bit as good as any portable CD player I've used. I may still buy a Sony if/when they ever get around to selling 32gb units, but the more I use the Fuze that harder Sony is going to have to sell me.

A note about the EQ -- I've never been a big fan of significant EQ adjusting anyway, and wiser, more experienced people here warn that the Fuze EQ is crap, however I've found that setting the bass EQ only at just +1 provides a modest bass boost without any noticeable distortion/degradation in SQ. As always, YMMV and perhaps top end cans/IEMs would reveal some distortion I'm not hearing, but it works for me (I know my V6's pretty well after all these years and I think I'd hear any distortion).

I would have been so p.ss.d if I was in the market for a MP3 player and had ordered wat is presented as a 12 Gb but really is a 8+4 Gb.

Sorry if I got anyone excited.

Its something you need to watch for though. Its sort of like saying FREE COFFEE!!! with a purchase of equal or greater value. Sketchy marketing tactics, but all above board.

Well, that could be an honest typing mistake. The title has the spelling correct.

There is a rule about pointing out spelling errors or typing mistakes: The person who points the finger, ends up making one themselves: In the description it says Samdisk (one letter wrong) not Samdisc (two letters wrong)

The correct spelling is Sandisk - see, even you got it wrong

(And, following the rule, somewhere in this post, there is at least one - not deliberate - typing or spelling mistake, made by me )

Back to the appreciation: Boy, do I love the sound coming from the Sandisk Sansa Fuze
