The title says it all. We've got multiple complaint threads; how about the antithesis? You can post about anything that's exciting, brings you joy, etc., be it Head-Fi/audio-related or not (but please try to follow the forum rules, of course--the mods here do a great job, so let's not make their lives difficult ). Preferably, though, it will be something current, recent, or soon-to-be.
I guess I'll start off. I just Rockboxed my 5th generation iPod. I have no idea why I didn't do this sooner! The main reason I decided to go ahead with it was to gain access to the parametric EQ, since I recently followed the advice in this thread and painstakingly created a custom EQ for my SRH440. With a few necessary simplifications, I was able to transfer those settings to Rockbox. I'm still evaluating the results, but so far I think the curve translated well.
Overall, I'm still exploring Rockbox, but so far I like it a lot. The crossfeed is nice to have and something I didn't expect to be included. I also really appreciate the flawless implementation of gapless playback, which would have been a deal breaker if it didn't work well. The Rockbox interface takes some getting used to after the iPod one, but I'm getting there. It seems like there's a treasure trove of customization options, and I've already taken advantage of some of them.
So that's what I'm excited about: Rockbox and my custom EQ.
