REVIEW - COLORFLY C3 - Page 42  

post #616 of 803
My Ortofon e-Q5s will be delivered today and I'm looking forward to trying them with my C3.

Thanks to TechnoKid and Swimsonny for the recommendation.

Glad I didn't got for the T-Peos, thin and distant mids is something that I definitely don't want in my IEM.

What program was used to convert those files to FLAC? I use EAC and ensure that I check the GAPs between each song. Not sure if that could be the issue, but sounds strange to me. Consider RMA the unit. Good luck with that one though as it will have to go back to China most likely.

I dont have a flash card at the moment...so this is just working with the internal 4GB memory. Didnt want to buy a microSD card until I knew I was definately keeping the C3 which at the moment is still up in the air.

 

I have deleted all files of the C3 and reformatted the internal memory just in case.....but that doesnt seem to have worked at all.

Did you format it FAT32?

Download this free cheap ripper, rip an album to 320kbps see if it occurs. We need to see if it's your files and something to do with dbpoweramp.

Next step is to try re-installing the firmware, that will make the player fresh. If the problem persists I'm afraid the player might be faulty.

The static happens between every single file....its not even a quite pop....its a substantial amount of static lasting between 1 and 3 seconds.

 

I have also tried loading a number of 16/44 FLAC files and everyone one of these just stops after its played 1 track and the small square appears in the top left of the screen....when I press the play or next button it continues and then stops again at the end of that track.

 

I have tried FLAC and WAV files and they all seem to have issues of one sort or another...I even copied across a 24/48 FLAC file and when I pressed play for that I just got constant Static!!

 

Its actually quite infuriating and I am just about ready for ditching the dam thing and using my iPhone whilst running angry_face.gif

24/48 FLAC won't play at all, that's normal. C3 is limited to 16bit FLAC / 24bit WAV.

Arrgh I new that wink_face.gif

 

I forgot to rerip it to WAV...........thats how insane this problem is driving me lol

post #624 of 803

I have been using a free version of dbPoweramp and not sure if that could be the problem??

post #625 of 803
We need to eliminate the source of your problem to figure out if the player is at fault or your files being incompatible for some reason.

Most of here use EAC, Exact Audio Copy. Now if we can narrow down the problem to it being the files. I can give you guides to use EAC and set it up.

But first we must eliminate the problem......

Please follow my post

definately worth re-ripping 1 album using a few rippers with the output formats you wish to use to try and nail down the problem. i've used dbpoweramp paid version for years without problem but have yet to test my dbpoweramp 320 rips with he c3. mine is currently on the way from hk

Also, just on the off chance, do a reset.

Above the headphone jack there is a reset hole. (you will need a pin)
post #628 of 803

I have reset the C3 just in case.

 

I have also done the following using FreeRip Basic:

 

Ripped a CD to FLAC format - All tracks play fine with no issues or pops between tracks.

 

Ripped a CD to MP3 Format (although the max I can get for MP3 is 156Kbps) - All tracks play fine with no issues and no pops between tracks.

 

I have also re-ripped a downloaded 24/48 FLAC file to 16bit WAV - Tracks play fine with no pops between...although It has thrown the track order out of order.

 

So from this I think I can assume that its dbPoweramp that is doing something to the tracks when converting them??

Why bother? The C3 just isn't gapless.

Yes, yes, now just what dbpoweramp is doing exactly is beyond me. It's not my main ripper and I don't have the anwsers you need.

If you want to install EAC send me a PM, I'll give you those guide links.
