If you think the EQ on Rockbox is muddy, you obviously didn't learn how to use it to its full potential.wink.gif

Rockbox is an amazing player for any device that supports it.

In search of a set of smaller phones for the clip+, i gave it another try &
i bought a pair of sennh. cx870 iem(s). (saw them on a discount somewhere, cheap).
Although i think the hd595 still sound significantly better, the cx870 are
rather good/good enough, especially after a few hours "burn in"  =).
I was a little surprised about the playing hours i got from the battery tho. ca. 6 hours.
The volume on "high" at 60%, playing level 7 / 300+ k ogg's & few flac's. Eq on this time..
I guess this takes a lot of power. Hope my battery is not a lemon.

But hey..can't complain really..the little player doesn't cost too much.

Also i saw even R2D2 uses it..=)

Then i have a question: what would be the fastest (& still safe) solution for a wall-socket usb charger?
I see there are chargers with 500mA, 1A & 2.1A power?
Will a 2.1A charger be faster? or is this just too much for the clip+?

I can't seem to get the autoloader to work for my clip+.  Anyone know why it wouldn't work?  Or if I should install an earlier version?"

Is the Clip+ USB mode set to mass storage? (MSC)

It's in Mass Storage.  It's set to the E: drive.  So I set the rockbox to download there, but that's where it stops and gives me an error.

I would have to say people like it because it put out a really great sound for an $50 player, its in the same way as why people seems to like MH1C , people are often able to like cheaper things more than expensive ones , even if the expensive one provide considerable improvement

post #219 of 467

People dislike the clip because they don't want to believe it can perform so well at the price. It sticks two very diminutive fingers up at their belief system, that more expensive is always better, generating a lot of hostility; this manifests as expectation bias and causes perception anchoring in their subjective listening appraisals! It's the old availability cascade in action. wink.gif

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

...I still prefer my iPod video though!

I own and like the clip but I also know it's a bit dull sounding. I think It's the belief system of only specs having earswink_face.gif that is as much at fault as any other for these types of arguments. Rationalizing the opposition isn't very empirical.bigsmile_face.gif

I'm late to this party but did you make sure that you're using a compatible Sansa FW to start and aiming the autoloader at an unzipped version of same. Not every FW version is supported.

Thanks.  I'll give that a shot.

I have to agree, I got an iPod Video 5.5 80GB a little while ago and it really does have a pleasing sound to it, a step above my Sansas (which are still and will remain my portables) and better than any of the other DAPs I have experienced. Sounds pleasing enough via the line-out that I have zero interest in any of the *cough*audiophile*cough* DAPs. L3000.gif

I agree, it has a richer sound gets my head nodding a more often. Whilst I would love to hear the audiophile portables I cant see me ever spending that much coin on one, I am more than satisfied with the iVid and Clip+ (unamped) Iv'e owned iMods and amps with stupidly priced interconnects and cannot remember such a significant difference to make them worthwhile but each to there own :).
