are you using the dbpoweramp converter (http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm) simply to convert from one format to another? or are you saying you used dbpoweramp to rip direct from the cd and you are getting the problem from that rip?

Omg, why so low? Having tracks that quality on C3 doesn't make sense.

You know that you can just use Win Media Player to rip CDs at MP3 / 320kbps right?

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

Cheers mate, I'll drop you a PM.

yes i agree dbpoweramp is a great tool. i've been using it to rip for years. never used it to convert though. Jason36 is simply converting from one format to another using dbpoweramp. 'converting' being the key word above. he didn't say 'ripping'

These are albums that I had has ALAC and had to rerip as WAV using dbPoweramp.
All I know is that if I can't get rid of the static between tracks then it will have to go....because it really is a pain and can't be food for the ears.
Other than that.....I hunk its great :-)

Ok unfortunately my experience with the C3 is really beginning to put me of this DAP.

I have just reloaded a couple of albums that I have re-ripped into FLAC format.....one is a 24/96 file which i have converted into 24/48 in WAV and the other is a CD I have just ripped to FLAC using the free version of dbPoweramp.

The 24/48 file has about three seconds of very high pitch and loud static between each track (not good for the ears) and the FLAC file just decides to stop after every track as though I have pressed the pause button!!

This is now becomming a bit annoying.....I bought this off a headfier on here who apparantly only used it for an hour and didnt like the small screen...although now Im wondering?? Do you think I have a faulty C3?

I dont want to have to sell this...but its looking more and more like that if I cant solve this problem.

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??

Nobody should ever use WMP as a ripper....it is garbage!

What's so bad about it exactly?

Works just as well as any other program from my point of view.

Hot damm the c3 pairs so well with the mh1, pairs beautifully it the o2 as well but today using it with the e11.  Those things are designed for each other.  
Portable use for me it just doesn't get better than this.

Yeah, the c3+e11+mh1c is a very good combo. Btw, the silicon cases I ordered for my C3 have finally been shipped - it only took them 10 days LOL

No error correction, no AccurateRip, your only options for lossless are WAV and WMA Lossless (which won't play on any portable player outside of a Zune, I don't think), a subpar MP3 encoder (although nobody should be ripping to MP3 really).....

It does have Error Correction.

Also, those who actually want to conserve space on their DAP will be ripping to MP3. wink.gif

I ordered mine from here http://www.lugbuy.com/index.php?main_page=product_info_taobao&item_id=17505980914 but you can use another taobao agent like mistertao.com. What they do is orger it from a taobao seller, receive it and ship it to you, so it takes a little bi more time. Apparently it took them 4 days to receive mine and after that they didn't ship it immediately but sent me a PM with a pic if I want the product (quite strange that they ask me if I want something that I ordered) and as I read the message yesterday I wasted 6 days but whatever. As far as screen protectors I don't think there is one particularly made for the C3 but just one that fits it and maybe they do pack it if you get a c3 from them and I don't think you'll find one sold separately and it will be a waste of money as you can get a higher quality protector yourself and cut it to the desired size.

I used an exacto blade and cut a mobile screen protector to size, perfect fit no problem, easily sourced.
