using phonak as my rig, i found that studio V & rocoo P has different sound signature. not one is better than the other, but more just of a personal preference

 

if i have to be very picky, i'd say studio has slightly better resolution, slightly better bass punch and more neutral sound signature compared to the slightly v-shaped rocoo P

The Studio V owns and it does really well with the IE80 (and EX1000 according to ie2han). Very wide presentation with depth into the music. I feel like the music is literally to my side. Never got such an effect on another DAP or even on my DACport LX. This little gem continues to amaze me. And the fact that I don't have to stress out about charging it every 5 to 6 hours like my 601 makes it all the more better.

my question, why would we install the firmware in the first place if we're going to format it later on?? confused.gif


Should have been clearer - I chose to format the memory in the firmware installer, which of course would format first and install the three firmware images later. What I said was there was only one file on the RoCoo-P after the firmware upgrade. I will check the player once it's through the burn-in, but I have a vague recollection that the system folder may be storing the media library (which can be re-created I suppose).

If there is a detailed person, please teach it

 

STUDIO-V can use 32GB MicroSD Cards, at least mine and several friends have done so successfully.

STUDIO-V: Problems reading SD Cards:

 

My STUDIO-V would not play the music files in my 8GB SD Cards. It would show the music folders OK, but would not play the music files (flac & mp3) within. The Studio window would say: 'No File'.

 

Here's what I did to fix it:

 

1.) Re-loaded the latest STUDIO system software: http://www.head-fi.org/t/587884/hisound-studio-rocoo-firmware-files

 

2.) Re-formated the STUDIO drive to FAT32.

 

3.) Made sure I used the MS 'Safely Remove Hardware' macro to disconnect the STUDIO from the USB drive. Before I was just unplugging it manually...probably not cool. (I think this is what really solved the problem.)

 

After the above steps, I can now read all my SD cards and play all my music files...No more 'No File' messages.smile.gif

Anyone know what the output impedance of the Studio-V is? blink.gif

Is your adapter not doing the trick?

It definitely is, but I'd like to know for knowledge sake.

I asked Jack via PM. Hopefully he won't be too difficult in giving out this info...

Wow, thank you SO much! Worked like a charm. biggrin.gif And there we have it. Really the only obstacle left I was hoping to overcome. smile.gif

so you installed the firmware, then you format the whole memory of your studio V? is that how you do it?

 

you know, the instruction provided is not really much of a help

post #147 of 828

From beginning to end, I did exactly as follows:

 

  1. With the Studio-V already off, I pushed the RESET button down for a second or two, then released.
  2. I then held the MIDDLE key for 2-3 seconds, and of course, the player shouldn't turn on, because of step 1.I then released the MIDDLE key.
  3. I waited ~15 seconds.
  4. After ~15 seconds, I held the UP key, and all the while, I connected the USB cable to my Studio-V.
  5. The windows 'da-dun!' sound confirmed the Studio-V was connected.
  6. Continuing to hold the UP key, I launched the firmware .exe file (StUpdaterApp_4MIN.exe in this case; the latest dynamic firmware file)
  7. At this point, the Studio's screen should appear all fuzzy/grainy, which is what you want. Once this appears, you may now release the UP key.
  8. Within the program itself, I made sure 'Format Data Area' and 'Full media Erase' were CHECKED.
  9. I hit start, and left the software to do it's job.
  10. Upon completion, I safely removed the Studio-V, switched it on, and confirmed it was fully functional.
  11. I reconnected the Studio-V, dragged in the same tracks/albums that had initially displayed as questions marks, and waited for the files to transfer.
  12. After the files were transferred, once again, I safely removed the Studio-V.
  13. I switched it on again, went into the source manager and located the files/albums I had just transferred, and confirmed that there was no more question mark.
  14. All file formats are now working flawlessly.

 

Hope that helps! biggrin.gif

So does this mean that I have the old firmware still? Because my work around for those few files with the question marks was to remove the 3.2 flac tags and keep 3.1...?

ahhaaa.. so i should have checked those two..

 

thanks man. that helps a lot. you probably will help a lot others too if you post your comment in the studio & rocoo firmware files thread

 

so the instruction provided IS wrong. it's stated there that we should format the player separately AFTER we finish installing the firmware (which does not make sense at all)

Did you download the latest firmware file I uploaded to the dedicated firmware thread? If not, you're most likely still on the older one.
