The Fuze seems a bit louder than the Clip+ but the quality is the same. Perhaps it is just my imagination, but it seems I need the Clip+ volume to be around 75% to get the equivalent volume as the Fuze at 50%. this is with the same headphones. The end result is the same though, and I like it.

Some lv6 FLAC don't play on my clip. I dont know if the + version has that issue but the original does for sure. I'd like to know if total lossless flac plays on the clip+
What is a "fully lossless FLAC"? Is there a partially lossless counterpart? I don't get it.
I usually rip level 5 but have tried all of them, and never recall having an issue with the Clip or the Clip+ playing them back.
