Hi guys, I have a 30gb ipod 5.5 running RB on the OEM drive. Love everything about it but would like a little more storage. I ordered the Tarkan CF adapter and am now shopping a card. I'm really just looking for a 64gb card; the >64gb cards are going for a little more than I was looking to spend at the moment. I've read through this thread forwards and backwards and some of the info concerning CF compatibility conflict with the list on Tarkan's site. I've seen the Komputorbay cards recommended here but on Tarkan's site he notes potential problems with the gen 5 and 5.5 ipods. I see the Dolgix 133x 64gb card on Amazon for about $50. List on Tarkan doesn't note any issues with it; has anyone here used it and how did it work out? Any others you can recommend? Any 128gb cards for under $100 known to work with the 5.5 gen and the mk2 Tarkan adapter?
FWIW I listen to it with TF10s with Fiio replacement cables and am very happy with the sound as-is. Thanks everyone!
Yeah the CF compatibility list on Tarkan's site is not 100% accurate. The Komputorbay 128GB 600x works just fine with the Tarkan adapter. The Dolgix 133x 64gb or 128GB card also works fine. Those two brands are probably the least expensive ones you could get.
This 128GB CF card should work as well, but personally I have not tried it yet. Remember seeing a pic from a head-fi'er of CF mod with this card and the Tarkan.
