Hisoundaudio ROCOO BA - Superior Hi-Fi player for Ciem's & Iem's - Page 37

post #541 of 632

hell, I prefered the hisound players over a RWA 5.5 imod (alo lod + rsa predator).

 

 

Don't me me wrong, sure an ipod from the 1970's (yes, I'm exaggerating) has a better UI, build quality, storage capacity, and simply not

 

buggy, but as far as sound quality goes. it's def. behind these other daps.

Totally agree. I even offered achmed the chance to demo my Rocoo BA at the time but he conceded. I can understand though since that is the best way to refrain from being tempted into buying more gear ;). You'll never know until you try and if it's free to demo I see no reason not to.

The specs sheet says this is compatible with up to SDHC cards, but I see some people in the thread talking about SDXC. Will it work with those?

 

I want to get the fastest 64gb solution possible even if it costs a little bit more.

If you format it to FAT32 it will work. The speed does not matter really. That will only make a difference if you are using the exFAT format and copying music onto the card via an external card reader itself opposed to the DAP. The only thing the 64 GB card has going for it is storage (which is a big plus) :).

He has only more clear sound, but cheap details in your music. Also good power but nothing more special. Interesting liar - yes, like all HSA products. Sigmatel cannot give something special.
If we talk about Wolfsons,  they can make you love your music but lies in some details.

Berkovajazz. have you actually tried the Rocco BA? You have the heard the player? I remember you saying similar things about Colorfly C3 and CK4,. but when I asked you had not even heard Colorfly C3. Have you heard Rocco BA?

I was owned it for 2 months and Studio (+ anv) was hearing lot of times.

Ok, just wondering.

I tend to disagree though with your Sigmatel DAC claim, I don't really care for what's inside, but how it's implemented because to me Studio V and Rocco BA I own have both proven to be very capable to my ears that's rating them above and next to players like Colorfly C3 / CK4. I would take either Hisound player in a second over HM-601 which I owned previously. I am actually selling my CK4 because I prefer Studio V. So I guess we all hear differently.

lol obviously. I don't see the iphone4 comparing at all. Not even when amped it is still not on par with the Studio V. There is much more than just specs alone and Hisound has proven that. Imagine what they could do with expensive parts ;). But synergy is also key. I can see Hisound players not pairing well with certain IEMs or headphones. The same could be said about apple products.

I agree, synergy plays a big part in all this. sometimes you have bad pairings which cause some confusion.

The thing is I won't jump to conclusions though that a piece of gear sounds like crap until I go out of my way to make accommodations. But to an extent :P. In certain circumstances no matter what you do. You can polish that turd all you want but it still ends up being a shiny piece of sh*t ;).

The speed doesn't matter for reading and writing? Device start up and writing files to it from the computer while the SD card is inside the Rocoo?

If you are using the Player to load music onto the device you are going to be limited by how fast the device itself can transfer to the card opposed to the cards write speed. The only way you are going to maximize the write speed is by using an external card reader to load the card with music. Plus it has to be in exFat to maximize the speed. Otherwise you are going to take a hit on the write speed. So its really moot if you get my point. The read speed doesn't matter. That will not improve any aspect on the player itself. As long as the card isn't slow where it causes lag the point is moot regarding the read speed as well.

I see. I was hoping this would help the slow start up times.

 

So what's the sweet spot for a card that's slightly faster than what the player can do and so does not constitute a bottleneck?

The only way you are going to fix the slow start up times is by cleaning your tags and using the proper ID tags. My player takes 10 seconds to refresh on each restart with about 700 WAV files on it. When I had 2,500 FLAC files on a 64 GB card it use to take around 30 to 35 seconds to refresh on each restart. Now if you have 10,000 64 KB mp3 files well then I can't help you there lol.
