The NEW Sansa Clip+ - Page 9

post #121 of 154
Oh an Australian trying to buy a Clip+? So am I.
I plan on buying mine from SanDisk 8GB Sansa® Clip Plus MP3 Player (Black) Hot!! - eBay, iPod MP3 Players, Electronics. (end time 18-May-10 04:16:31 AEST) & bid on a 16gb microSD card from this seller eBay Australia Shop - Apus Auction Express II: Electronic, Flash Memory Card. I've seen them sell for $38.
This comes to a total of $130~ for a 24GB player. Sounds pretty good to me. If you search on ebay internationally for the Clip+ you can get them pretty cheap, where and how big you get the SD card from is up to you. I'm planning ebay because yet again, it's cheap.

The Clip+ is a great little player. Amped it sounds even better. I bought it for use when my T51 died if I'm on the road or something. I also use it in the car.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Yeah since I'm in Australia I'll be looking to buy on ebay since Australia doesn't seem to have an official distributor. Cheapest 8GBClip+ seems to be about $85AUD shipped like the one HeroKid quoted.

I guess my concerns about navigating have dissapeared

Don't forget to put Rockbox on it

Will putting Rockbox on the Clip+ change the SQ?

I got my Clip+ last week and it sounds great out of the box with both my Grado 80i and Koss Portapro.

My only concern is the first thought that my wife and i had when we looked at it for the first time: disposable mediaplayer.

Sounds great to me with OF (sansa's original firmware) or rockboxed.  Some say it sounds better.  Either way, the EQ and features are definitely better, and you can have your cake and eat it too because installing rockbox means you dual boot -- if you want the OF, all you have to do is hold the "home" button for a second or two while turning it on.

They are built to last -- but if you are ever tempted to toss it into a landfill before the end of it's useful life, PM me first and I will promise you I will find it a good home.

@Wrist-Fi:

 

Ok, i will let you know when the time has come to toss a clip+ :-)

 

And thanks for the update on Rockbox, i thought the OF gets lost in the proces!!

Did anyone get a 4GB Clip+ yesterday when Woot had them for $19.99? I thought about it, but since I just bought a 4GB Fuze last month, i decided to pass.

post #129 of 154

Im considering this, even though its only 8gb. Does this support 16gb MicroSD at max or will it be able to read a 32 GB MicroSD?

32gb cards work; use rockbox to avoid the longer "refreshing your media" times.

Hi

 

I have a sansa clip+ and just updated for the latest firmware.

The result was that the sound level turns very very low even at maximum volume.

With RE0 I can hardly hear it and before the "upgrade" it had a good and normal volume.

Has anyone experienced the same problem?

Can you help?

Regards

Did you select "Europe" as your region? That will set the volume to low. If you don't have Volume setting in settings(which should be set to high, if it's there) changing you region should fix it.

My Clip+ 8GB freezes almost everytime I pull the clip. There must be some kind of bad contact inside. I have to activate the warranty... It's a pity 'cause I really like the player..

Darn that sucks man; I had no idea the clip itself had anything to do with the internals; then again you can't really remove it; you kinda gotta take it apart and sand it down....
