Huh???  Why for you think sound quality decreased?:blink:

I could just hear it. For some reason songs on the 64 GB card sounded constrained in comparison. This was also tested on the AK120 going back to back with the same files. I used specific songs that I know like the back of my hand and made it very easy to tell. The hisound players were harder to test this with but I could also tell a slight difference. Even with WAV. That is why I only use WAV on both players besides some mp3 here and there that I can't get in full quality. Most won't hear a difference though or not find it worth the gains of sacrificing storage space. I'm all for more storage but if it means degrading my sound then I won't opt for it. Otherwise I could have just stuck with a Sansa. :).

Heh, RGR.  I tried different file formats and I used smaller cards at first till I got the 64GB and did not hear a difference with my x10's (other than when I went from 192 V0 mp3 to flac that is).  Maybe when I get my new CIEM's I will be able to hear it.  (UE7 Pro's and JH Roxanne's are both on the way after auditioning them at CanJam).  We will see.

Got mine back but can not get any sound out of it. It looked like it was playing and the volume increasing but no sound. frown.gif

All of the above was tested on the 1Plus2.

He certainly seems very helpful and responds quickly to emails. I'll certainly follow your advice and ask him to give the new unit a good look over.

Anybody using OS X 10.8 to install firmware updates in the Studio 3? Wondering if there will be any glitches. 

post #519 of 1236

can't. The installer is Windows only.

post #520 of 1236

Thanks goodvibes. I've partitioned my drive with Windows as well, so that should work.

There's no gapless playback either!

 

I have to say I am appalled at the state of the software driving this device.

 

Considering the example Apple have set with a UI that just works I can't quite believe how cumbersome and useless this is and the suggestions on this thread are all fine but are just covering up the inadequecies which need to be addressed by Hisound Audio. In this day and age should we really be deleting system folders and splitting mp3 collections across multiple memory cards? Performing convoluted button press combinations to update the firmware? I don't think so.

 

There is no point getting the hardware right if you're not going to spend some time getting the software right too because ultimately no one - or at least hardly anyone - will buy your product and you will go out of business.

 

This feels like a first stage beta product that's not fit for consumers and I hope that the people at HSA are going to do something about it....

So you own one to know if it's worth your effort or just need to rant? Ipods abound for those that prefer their mix of attributes.:smile:

Just rip your albums as a single track... Then gap less becomes a non issue.. Works for me since i only ever listen to albums . Not into random since i want to listen to what my mood dictates.

I take it you've seen this thread?

Hey lee730, I'll take your word on using a 32gb card over 64gb. I really care about sound quality (using Senn HD600's).

 

What brand Micro SD card would you recommend? SanDisk Ultra 32GB Class 10 microSD?

 

Cheers
