Favrite price promotion for Hisound’s upcoming new Nova player - Page 34

The dimensions of the N series pictured next to iPods of various generations depicts a player in roughly the same size league. I have done major surgery on iPods and found the hard drives are pretty small (1.8"). If Jaganee does open up the N3 and measures the hard drive we'll see what will physically fit in the player.

Nova is only 4.2 cm wide. I dont think even the 1.8" drives would fit.

just for checking the Nova 3 SQ i wrote like that.

its not about the size, voltage or storage media.

I don't think even 1.8 inchers HDD would fit , the nova is the approximately the size of ipod nano of the current gen, or the 4th and 5th , which uses flash solid state drives, instead of the HDD used in the old ipods (Ipods never used HDD anymore after their ipod minis except on their fullsize)

the parcel is "now" awaiting custom clearence. I actually spoke to parcelforce yesterday and basically they said express 24 should have reached the UK in 24 hours, 48 max. i also spoke to hisoundUK after. what he told me was in essence, although he charged us all £5 for the shipping the cost of it is actually a lot more. if he sent each one seperately it would cost about £40 per parcel via express to each country. he has paid parcel force $120 for this next day shipping, and on top of that will pay between 6 and 10 pounds per parcel to ship it over. I did ask him why and he said;

 

right now it is not about making a profit for me but rather making a name for myself. Im really new in this bussiness and the market is already crowded as it is. I want top notch service to set myself apart and have really tried to offer that, however i have been let down by the shipping companies(and the weather). I had experience slow shipping last time with chinapost so opted to use the more expensive parcel force this time, which promised to get the parcel in 1 day. of course for this i have to spend a lot more than the £5 for shipping i have charged. In all each player is selling at a loss right now. Please dot take this as a complaint becuase i have chosen to take this loss myself but rather take it as me trying to explain that i really have tried my best to keep everything smooth. Personally this is my first venture into the bussiness world, and to make up for my lack of experience i have genuinely tried to keep everything as low cost as possible while keeping the standards high. I really believe in hisound as a company and so am willing to risk some money now to bring it to the world and show that i can provide a quality product and service. Fortunately the shipping should still be quicker than a normal £5 shipping would give, but i was hoping for you guys to get the pacakges 5 days after them having shipped and think to yourself "that was damn quick". hopefully i wont be effected negatively in the feedback as i did mention it was a preorder and that the shipping could take a long time, but it may not work out like that. Heres to hoping everyone gets their products very quickly now.

 

thanks

i for one dont mind waiting a little extra time and do hope this guy doesnt end up paying for parcelforces incompetence.

 

anyway the tracking now say this so it shouldnt be too long at all.

There's a SanDisk SSD measuring 16mm x 20mm x 1.85mm with 128GB ;)

 

A faster drive would maybe solve the issue with cutting off the first second, but I doubt that it's possible to realise a hard drive modification in the original NOVA housing.

isnt the cutting just a fade in/fade out setting?

No, it doesn't occur when you play wav files.

Forget that it needs to actually fit the players internals LOL. That would have zero affect on the cutting of a fraction of a second. The issue is not the drive or a higher density wav file would do it as well. Besides, flash ram is plenty fast to begin with. There's an expansion slot. Use it.

also no fade options but that may be a cure if updated.

I just can never leave things well enough alone I guess. When I get a new car I swap in a bigger motor etc.

no i think his name is ian, jack is the hisound guy who is in china. thanks for the update on the fading btw, here i thought it was just trying to be a bit snazzy xD is this something that happens on players often? and am i right in saying you guys think it is because there is not enough memory for certain types of files?

The fade in seems to be in issue with FLAC. From what I hear it won't happen on WAV so it could very well be a firmware issue (hopefully). I also hope they allow for more volume control. I'd personally like even lower volume on the lowest settings. I wonder if they can add more volume steps to accommodate for this? On certain tracks even volume 1 is too loud for me.....
