New Sansa Clip Zip is out! - Page 9

post #121 of 391

Just got my zip and rockboxed it.:) It's really impressive apart from I can't run doom(says some files missing)

 

The sound eq function is really impressive. 

 

I found zip sounds pretty bright lots of treble:)

 

This is such a good little thing that I can use in the gym or when my 801 is out of battery:)

enjoying my rockboxed clip zip. 

 

regarding the slight noise that the clip+ had...

 

I immediately noticed that the zip doesnt make any extra noise when initially reading the card like the clip+ did, and that the noise, while still very faintly there while music plays, is a more subdued, muffled noise, making it even less noticeable.  of course its so faint that its hardly worth mentioning in the first place.

 

overall the zip is great.  Just like the Clip+ was.  Nothing major to report regarding differences.

Just rockboxed my ipod classic too:). I found it sound better than rockboxed zip. The edge is more defined and sounds more bodied and fuller.

 

But cilp zip sounds absolutely amazing at its price

No I take that back. They sound equally good. Clip zip has much stable and faster rockbox system although ipod's rockbox looks better with bigger screen.

the zip does not sound bright.. not even close.  it sounds neutral just like the clip+ which has some very professional testing done by nwavguy to back it up.  There is no way sansa went and changed something as radical as the frequency response of their player.

Oh okay then, that's reassuring. biggrin.gif

I'll probably open mine tomorrow if I get the time. I got a [purple] 4GB Clip Zip on sale at Best Buy for $40 (I had a gift card to use), so I can't wait to try it out.

Yeah clip zip just sound neutral I guess. It's just because I was listening to HM801 for a very long period of time. But rockboxed zip does has a bit high noise though if I play a bit loud.

Just bought a used like new one from Amazon Warehouse for just $30! Looking forward to receiving it along with my class 10 16 gb sd card (swapping my phones stock class 2 w/ the 10 and using the 2 in Clip),

post #130 of 391

The SD card controller built into the Clip line means anything above a class 4 will not provide any faster transfer or read rates. Of course SD cards can be used in other devices so buy the best performance/price ratio for the moment, but just saying it will be of no benefit on the Clip line

If that was directed at me, read in the parentheses :P

Does anyone know where to get Rockbox font files (.fnt) to manually install them on the Clip Zip? I installed Rockbox successfully, but its stock font doesn't support Asian Unicode characters. :/

 

Unboxing the Clip Zip was a pain by the way. As a heads up to future buyers, the easiest way to take the Clip Zip out of the packaging is to use a razor blade and cut the sides of the packaging next to the Clip Zip itself.

Though it appears to be blue in the photo, the actual colour is purple.

 

For quick impressions, I found the Clip Zip to sound slighty warm and has better bass extension than my Rockboxed iPod Video (no EQ's on both), which is pleasently surprising and is only better for my 'bright-sounding' SRH940's.

Wow, thanks for the quick response. I thought there would be a zip file somewhere, but I couldn't quite find it. I kept on finding this page, which doesn't have any fonts I believe:
