No it's also the LO.

Alas, updating firmware is almost impossible for me as I don't have Windows computer and don't know anyone with one. I cannot borrow my wife's lab's computer, so I am pretty laid out for updates. The IMD isn't that high, though. The S:Flo 2 HPO outperforms the T3D in a couple of areas which is amazing, of course.

Now the question I want to know is  if the s:flo2 runs on linux or now :p That and the UI prevents me from ever taking a chance on this player.

post #2494 of 3625

If it ran on Linux it would run on Mac OS too.

post #2495 of 3625

You can plug the player in to most computers (Linux, OSX, Debian, Haiku) (though USB power is a problem with some), but you cannot update its OS, which is about as stupid an idea as possible. Cowon's players do it right: drag and drop the files onto the device and let the device update its self. Don't rely on an OS and shoddy external programming.

post #2496 of 3625

Apparently Cowon isn't w/o its own problems on Mac OS.  If you ever had a reason to you could dual boot Windows on your Mac.  I'm guessing you don't have a reason to. 

post #2497 of 3625
Yeah, the cow on (and the sflo2) both eject randomly, but the cowon is generally better. Neither system fully supports USB standards, but that is okay because most people who buy either brand are windows users, not Linux or OSX users.

For the first time, i was charging it while it was playing music at the same time for a couple of hours. When i listened to it, there was a noticeable difference in the music. Everything seems more refined and clearer, i could make out tiny improvements. It sounds weird but i remembered a poster somewhere in this thread experienced the same thing as i did.

Has anyone purchased/received a recent batch that can comment on the current status of the player's UI or stability?  (or any owners that have the most recent firmware).

 

 

I'm deciding between this and the Cowon J3 (60 bucks more) but this is more in my price range.

post #2500 of 3625

Stability is fine. I don't have an single issue with the firmware since v2 comes out several months ago. UI is the same as before, nothing much changes except the font looks better now. These and of course the new firmware (v2.3) also sounds a little cleaner and more transparent.

I just have the worst luck with this player. I was transfering some files into my friend's really really old computer, and later on today, the MicroSD started working really weird. Sometimes it recognizes the card, and sometimes not. I tried to format the MicroSD but couldn't. I also couldn't remove any files from it. Any of you have similar experiences? What do you think is the problem with my MicroSD slot? Any help will be appreciated.

I don't play w/ SD cards inside of players myself.  I'm usually carrying two SD card adapters in my wallet so I can just plug into anything around me.  Otherwise a small micro reader would be a good investment.  Old PC rule I like to follow, always remove as many unknown variables as possible in your command execution path.  Simplified, Card-->PC > Card-->DAP-->PC for reliability and speed.  Sorry if this doesn't help much.

I bought one a few weeks ago expecting there to be a few quirks but haven't had a single one very happy I went this route was also considering the J3

I guess it will be a very long time if I ever own this player. Setting up windows for a dap doesn't make much sense to me. If only everything worked fine and updating firmware was just dragging a file or a couple files to the root folder of the player.

post #2505 of 3625

I'm thinking sell my cowon D2+ and buy a S:Flo2. Is this the right movement for sound quality upgrade? or is it not neccesary? Thank you.
