I have posted these same thoughts. The Shuffle has a great warmth and gets loud all by itself. Who would know by the looks of the 1st gen? They still sell em new in box old stock on Ebay last time I looked. Truly a deal.

Today I swapped out my 8 yr old iPod mini for a 16gb flash card and a battery with double the capacity.then I rock boxed it.so far I'm loving the rockbox options and advanced settings.

At first I felt embarrassed to put my rig on here with all the awesome stuff I've seen on this thread.. . But I love my simple rig ... . Rockboxed Sansa Clip+, FiiO E5, FiiO L8, and my beloved VSonic VC02.. .

 

 

 

 

Wish I had a better LOD tho... . But this works..

You replaced the memory and battery yourself?

Very cool, my mini from 05 just finally passed out this week in fact. Any links on what to buy and how to get it apart?

Took me about 20-25 min to take apart, swap,and put back together. Then about 1 hour to restore the iPod, update and sync music to see if it is working properly. And them another 30 min to rockbox and add songs. Give or take a few minutes. Just go on amazon and search for iPod mini battery. And the related searches will link you to the flash card. Links would be amazon and rockbox.org , spent less than $30.

Don't be too embarrassed. I haven't heard the vc02 but the clip is amazing. You're standing right at the edge of the cliff of diminishing returns
I'm there too. Clip zip > modified Sony mdr-v7 and there is nothing else ive heard under $200 to replace either piece that sounds enough better enough (and suits my personal taste) to justify the price. I keep hearing good things about modified t50rp though

Yes, I agree. The Clip is amazing. I gave up a Rocoo P to get it. No, I don't think that the Clip is better than the Rocoo, in fact I think the Rocoo ia better, just not 2x the price better. Sold my Rocoo, bought a Clip, and I still had extra money. Rockboxed it as soon as I got them and haven't thought of letting them go ever since. 

 

The VC02 is just unbeatable at its price point. In fact, ljokerl has rated its sound 8.1/10, at par with IEMs at the 150USD price point, at only 30-35USD. But my adoration of this lil beast doesn't stem from the reviews as I was prolly one of the first 5 head-fiers to get them after reading the VC02 appreciation thread, before any review actually came out on any site, cept for one from a chinese site. It's based on my personal intimate experience with it. You should try it. It wouldn't cost you a lot and you might actually like it. There's very little to hate about it. It's a no-lose situation.

 

As for my rig, I wish I had a shorter LOD so that I plug the earphones on top of the rig and not at the side. But I don't have the DIY know-how, so... I have to make do with a L8... It works, though and I'm happy about my setup. Not bulky. Readily pocketable... 

 

It really is all about personal tastes. "To each one his own." Glad you found it in a setup that didn't burn your pockets too much. Same with me. Budget-fi never sounded so good.
