iRiver H120 - Sell or Keep?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Haven't had the money to get a proper amp for my iRiver H120 and was wondering what you guys think if I should keep it or sell it

 

If I should sell it how much is it worth?

The only reason to keep it is if you mod it (change a hard dtive to bigger one and maybe a battery), and then use it as a digital source with a good external dac\amp. As a standalone player it sucks just like all other players out there. If you don't have money to buy a DAC\amp - you better sell iriver, and get t51 instead. :)

I am looking for one (also an H140), if you plan on selling it send me a PM. Thanks.

Don't know what you're talking about abryvalg, as a stand alone player the sound quality is far better than any ipod I've heard

All those PMPs are more or less in the same leasue SQ-wise. Some are bit better, some are bit worse, but it is all the same anyway, Nothing special. Sure it is better than ipod, so what?

Keep it. It's a fantastic sounding player. Very powerful headphone output and a great line out. Plus, Rockbox.

 

It hisses more than most players but when paired with the right earphones it is fantastic. It even does well with full size cans.

I use it as a transport to my iBasso D10. Mine is Rockboxed and I replaced the hard drive with a 32gb SDHC using a CF to SDHC adapter. I will upgrade it to SDXC. I like them so much I have 4 of them and 2 for parts.

I have iriver, I had listened to various ipods, imod, and most other modern players. When I say something, I only say it based on my direct experience. It is possible, though, that my understanding of "SQ" differs from somebody's and what is "fantastic" for someone is merely OK for me. I have no problem with that, like I said, I am expressing my own thoughts based on my own experience and I do not expect others to necesserily agree with me. Do you have any problems with that? :)
