So this is just trolling, I get it

I'm waiting for a company to make a transport-only portable running rockbox and with a big ol' hard drive at a reasonable price, since the headamp and DAC could theoretically be omitted.

 

*sigh*

Apple's top players are limited to 64GB of storage, and they're 2x less expensive than colorfly.

Ipod Touch 64GB, when introduced - memory is about 40% of its price ($150 of $450).

Colorfly when introduced - memory is about 8% of its price (EUR40 of EUR500).

And there is no any limitations in max capacity, you put inside as many chips as you want. Look at Sony NW-A847, for example - it is quite small, but it has 64GB. Also, there are 1.8" SSDs with capacity of 256GB - they could even put 1.8" in this brick.

Also, 64GB currently costs about 80EUR (and 32GB is about 40EUR). There is no reasons not to put 64GB in such an expensive brick.

With big old hard drive it won't be portable.

Why's that?  640GB in a laptop hard drive is too insignificant?

2.5" hdds are not portable in a DAP sense.

I think you would be shocked what people are using for DAPs.  You can get 320GB on a 1.8".  Besides, when SDXC matures we get 2TB on an SD card.  Makes it moot at that point.  I hate spinning platters for moving around anyway.  Actually spinning platters for storage is just a horrible idea regardless.

Unless it's vinyl, that is

I know about 320gb 1.8", but my reply was to your post about 2.5"

SDXC standart only allows memory cards with capacity up to 2TB. It doesn't mean that there will be 2TB in size of an SD card immediately as the standart adopted; the only thing it means is that there could be cards with capacity more than 32GB (previous standart didn't allowed it) and that there never will be SDXC cards with capacity more than 2TB.

Look at this from such a point: in 2002, HDDs were close in size to 128GB, and old standart (LBA28) didn't allowed HDDs larger than 128GB, so new standart LBA48 was introduced. It allowed HDDs with capacity up to 128 petabytes (that is about 131072TB). 8 years has passed since that standart was adopted; and nobody thought that maximum practical capacity of HDDs is only limited by standart, and that 128 petabytes HDDs will appear within a couple of years from adopting a new standart.

Realistically, flash memory capacity doubles in the same volume about every 1.5 years (except for the last couple of years due to economic recession), so you shouldn't expect 2TB memory cards until 2018 or so. Maybe later, but unlikely sooner.

It is not that big and not that "good old".

I meant that 2.5" hdds are not suitable for DAPs.

post #60 of 356

Can you guys imagine a DAP that functioned as a drop-in dock for a 2.5" HDD? If it had the right form factor, it wouldn't have to be much bigger than the drive, especially if it just had a digital out. Think of the way HDDs drop into the bottom of an HP laptop.
