Well possibly if he can run windows on his mac (if he's willing to go through that that is).

I can, I just hate having to do it. Oh well thanks for the information anyway

I prefer a more so out of head experience which the HSA does quite well. :) Personally I wouldn't consider the Cowon players comparable to the Nova players. That's just me.

 

Would you mind explaining what you mean by an out of head experience? And why you don't think the Cowon players are comparable?

 

I'm trying to understand why I don't find the Nova's sound appealing. Lacking the vocab, I'm struggling to pin down exactly what's going on.

Anyone has some information regarding to the new firmware (yet)? rolleyes.gif

i have a class 10 with all my music on. was looking forward to trying a n1 out but now i'm reading of class 10 card 'noise' problems i'm not so sure...

write speed to the internal memory is painfully slow...i dont think its my computer because the clip+ goes wayy quicker.

 

Also, is the rumored firmware update supposed to address music organization on SD cards?

You should contact Jack with your concerns and push for these fixes guys. The more the  merrier :).

Hiss is pretty darn audible. You were right, it sure doesn't take bat ears to hear it on the N3. And this is WAV files playing with no SD card inserted. 

 

Still deciding if the slight bump in sound quality is worth banging my head over the poor functionality.

File transfer speed is a known issue at Hisoundaduio's own forum. Hisoundaudio didn't say much about how they want to handle it. New firmware possibly will turn volume even higher, if so, I expect even louder hissing noise. Agree with you, "if the slight bump in sound quality is worth ..."
post #763 of 1082

It amazes me that people need higher volume levels on this thing. I'm listening at 3...

Give the unit more time to burn in. The N1 opened up quite nicely with usage and gets better. Still the hiss is noticeable but for the most part a non-issue during music playback. Still on certain tracks I could see it being an issue though. Personally I just need more volume control and I'd be happy. With the 8As just too loud :(....

Don't get me wrong, I think it sounds phenomenal, especially with my 7X (which in my understanding has a very similar sig to the 8.A). But I'm so used to navigating my music by artist and album on iDevices, and even Sansas. If this player doesn't gain that functionality, I just can't see myself keeping it.
