i'm tempted to pick up that silver 8gb from overstock.com...coincidentally, they have a 10% off coupon code (134868) which makes it $56.94 shipped...

Which one do you have? For some reason I thought you had the 8 GB??? Which flash card do you have?

Gotta love that Fuze !

Here's a quick and dirty from a few minutes ago with my other dock.....

According to Sandisk, v1 and v2 of the clip have the same performance, but have a different PCB layout or something (I'm thinking to handle the extra memory of the 8gb model). I should imagine it's the same with the Fuze.

i do have the 8GB, but in black...didn't know the silver looks that good...

$56.94...finger inchin' towards the submit order button...

i have a couple of 4GB cards that were very cheap...one's a class 6 transcend, the other i'd hafta go look for...i usually just pick them up when they're on special (which is often)...


p.s. my black is v1 as well so who knows why they changed the pcb & what difference it makes...

My silver 8g is a v1 so that can't be it. It's the newer 8g Fuze that are popping up with v2.

Silver 8g what?

All 8gb Clips are V2 AFAIK. I didn't mean that the Fuze was changed to handle 8gb, but the PCB might've been redesigned to save cost or so they can expand the memory in future etc.

we can only hope all 8gb clips are v2, but sandisk is sloppy. I would not be surprised if a 8gb popped with v1 firmware. Just call customer support and they'll ask you all sorts of questions.

Fair enough! I didn't mean to sound so sharp then, read that back and almost winced! I don't know for certain what the differences are, nobody else seems to be either! Just relaying that the performance could well be the same on both versions, which appears to be the case with the Clip.

I wish Sansa would release their capacities in various colors. I really love the look of the red.

Comparing the Griffin dock to the headphone out at full volume I found the headphone out at full volume to be slightly cleaner than the line out of the dock. The difference was small, so I'm using the dock anyway.

(FWIW, there is no distortion at full volume from the headphone jack and the latest FW upgrade has removed the ability to adjust the volume while docked.)

I have not tried the more expensive Sansa dock, and there are no line out cables that I know of.

SanDisk has stated on their forum, that the the line out is the same as the headphone jack at full volume. I have found this to be relatively true.

[[ YMMV ]]

I just bought an 8gb Fuze today from Best Buy and I am wondering if maybe I am having a similar issue. I loaded a FLAC file onto it and am not impressed at all by the player's lack of highs and muddy-sounding mids/lows. I am somewhat ashamed to say it, but I vastly prefer the same song played on my 3G-Nano in AAC (EQ turned off in both cases). I listened to both via my Shure SE420s. ... My CD collection is currently stored in AAC format, but I want to buy the 32 gb Trekstor Vibez when it becomes available. Therefore, I have decided to ditch the iPod and AAC in favor of FLAC. I bought the Fuze hoping to use it as an on-the-go/workout player in conjunction to having my collection in FLAC, but so far I just find the sound to be so unimpressive. Also, I much prefer the greater output of the nano.

Exchange it (bb is so easy) and see if it's defective. Maybe you just have to get used to the Sound sig. or not.
