Sansa Fuze Appreciation Thread - Page 3

post #31 of 103

I found my Sansa Fuze does not read the 32G Class10 microSD but it works well with 16G Class4 microSD.

Have anyone experienced this problem?

Rockbox it.

Some class 10 cards might be problematic in Sandisk players. These problems might not exist with Rockbox. Since the card reader in Sandisk players isn't faster than class 4, the best idea is to get a class 4 card to use in a Sandisk player.

The price difference between class 10 and class 4 32GB cards is enough for me to say it's not worth bothering with the class 10 anyways, even if it was trouble free.

However currently Rockbox does not support Sansa Fuze right?

Rockbox has supported the Fuze for a long time now.

Have the 8 gig Fuse+. Found the 16 gig card freezing and crashing occasionally with the original OS. Resorted to using 8 gig cards.

 

Recently Rockbox'd it.  From what I'm reading, Roxbox'd it will run a 32 gig card?

It will work with a 32GB card with Rockbox or the original firmware if it is a class 4 card. A class 10 card might not work. I have a 16GB Kingston class 4 card in my Fuze now using the original firmware and it works fine.

Is there any portable DAC that can bypass the internal DAC of Sansa Fuze?

Why would you want to? It sounds quite good as is, provided you Rockbox it for the correct playback speed.

But Rockbox does not further improve the sound quality like sound stage & separation, am I right?

Don't think so.

You'll have to use an external amp to improve the sound staging and separation. Not sure if they even have the LODs available for them anymore. I bought mine from Fiios along time ago. Problem is the LOD quality is quite crappy as it comes apart easily. I had to use super glue to get the job done and it still came apart after long usage. However it did improve the sound noticeably via the LOD. I've since moved on to much better sources though.

I bought the one below from a turkish seller, recommended on another fuse thread.  I did try it with a supposedly good external amp but could barely hear any difference from the Fuse on its own. That said, I'm sure there are amps out there that can make an improvement. normal_smile%20.gif

 

My future plans are to use a Windows 8 phone + external amp/ DAC, so maybe I've wasted my money buying that LOD.

 

I have the fuze in my rucksack permanently because its so light and diminutive. It sounds great either through my sony buds or Ultrasone Sig Pro's.

Honestly if you really wanna gain a huge improvement through an amp you are better served to upgrade your DAP altogether. While the Fuze is a great value there are DAPs out there that really take it to another level in comparison (sound quality wise). But as you said as well depending on the amp. So far the UHA6 MKII and Tralucent T1 amps seems to be the best bang for your buck. They compete with amps double their price range and even out-perform some of those very amps.
