Ah yes, I know exactly what you mean.

and thank you for the prompt replyregular_smile%20.gif


Nearly every earphone sounds better with an amp. But what matters is the degree to which they improve, and whether said improvement justifies the hassle of lugging around an amp. Audiophiles like to wax poetic about the night and day differences amping provides, but it's usually something much more subtle...and for many (especially those in loud environments) the improvements really aren't worth it. But as always, YYMV.

 

Edit: with amps like the arrow you at least have something small and slim, but looking at the RSA stuff...well, I think I'll just take the arrow. wink.gif

heh i agree.but i only use the amp at home, i think lugging around one defeats the "portable" factor.and i agree that all the hassle just isn't worth it. but the arrow and rsa stuff are really nice!

Just got my Clip+ and all i can say

 

WOW this thing is SMALL.But really SMALL. eek.gif

 

Amazing.....Now on with RBing it and adding some tunes....

post #546 of 925

Clip+ and ROCKbox are kick ass. I love this set up.

post #547 of 925

Can i ask a silly , noobie question ?

 

If i RB my clip+ , do i have to put all the mp3 files again on the clip+ or they stay intact and all is well ?

 

I don't want to pass my files only to have them to do it again after i RB my clip

 

Thanx !!!

When I rockboxed my clip I didn't have to do anything with the music, it was useful as is. Hope this helps.

post #549 of 925

I think it does - ok once i am done passing the 320k mp3s , i will Rb it

 

Thanx for the heads up  bigsmile_face.gif

Thanx for the great headsup man , i was looking a way to lock it and this is the way - thanx wink_face.gif

 

Just RB'ed my clip+ , i think the sound is better but could be a sonic illusion - still i like the firmware much better than the original

 

And i have to say it again - this is unbelievably tiny eek.gif makes me wanna start going to the gym again...

 

I haven't tested my 262 yet , but it drives more than sufficiently my 252 - besides this is too small a dap to use an arrow with - or so i think.

 

One noobie question - if i want to load new music  i have to return to the original firmware and do the usual drag and drop procedure thru the original USB settings , right ?

Drag and drop as usual. When you're done, turn the clip+ off and turn back on to get the Rockbox firmware back.

I just purchased a Clip+ 4gb the other day, from SelloutWoot, because of this site.  I already have a 8gb sdhc card and will be using it with my Grado SR60.  I will also be RBing it, looks like it will be here next week.
