Is Sansa Clip + really that good?! - Page 16  

post #226 of 467
Thread Starter 

I thiink the clip is decent with my IEM's although lacking a bit compared to my NAD amplifier headphone jack...

 

It is good as a cheap player and sounds pretty good but I think it is lacking in power to drive large headphones and even my IEM are lacking in bass compared to my integrated amp.

I get to the part where you get ready to install bootloader and then I get the error that I need the .bin file.  I didn't think you had to have that .bin file in the auto loader?  If I have to get it, I haven't found that either.

You always need the firmware bin file.  The installer just patches a firmware file with a bootloader so that you can run 3rd party code on the player.  The message that pops up isn't an error though, its a link to the webpage where you can download the file.  Rerun the installer, get back to that screen and then click the link and then download the firmware file for your player.

Thanks.  I guess I just hadn't taken it that far.  That's what I was thinking, but I thought the autoinstaller would do the entire thing.  Thanks.

Well that rockbox is everything people say it is.  Really able to tweak the sound.  My HFI780's have never had just that deep bass brought out by just a player before.  I really wish the text was larger.  It's quite annoying to try to read that tiny little text.  Also, does anyone know how to save the EQ settings.  I go to the save EQ section and put in a name...but then the only way I can get back to the main menu is to cancel the save.

Learn the menus and load some fonts. It's all there including text size. Retention is so much greater with discovery. Glad you got it going.bigsmile_face.gif

Because it is a brilliant machine! I have bought one 2 weeks ago (8 gb for just 40 euros yaay!) and played around with the original firmware. Today I rockboxed it and man, it is really worth it! At least some smaller letters :).

What does rockbox actually do?

 

Does it make any improvements to actual sound quality?

 

Such as more sub bass possibly? (I doubt it)

Not at all for me. Although I  was missing the basic treble / bass boost control after removing it.

Theres a parametric EQ, yes.

I doubt it gives any more sub bass capability over the stock firmware though?

 

I have noticed that the clip+ does not have much sub bass compared to my amplifier.

To be clear, a parametric EQ is one that allows arbitrary changes to the frequency response.  "sub bass" is usually <100Hz.  Just set an EQ band at 50 Hz, and crank it up as much as you like, and then add some precut so it doesn't distort.

It doesn't necessarily distort, most of the time it sound muddy i.e  the headphone is not able of clean sub bass, so let's not try to boost it.
