Even to the point of clipping on certain tracks. That is why if you must use FLAC use 0 compression FLAC. Better yet WAV :).

I'm not having a go at you, but- I've never noticed any difference in SQ between FLAC and WAV let alone differences between FLAC compression settings. Has  anyone done blind a/b 's to confirm this?

Never read it. I don't have a Vinyl set up myself but I have several hundred gigs of high quality rips which I really enjoy from time to time :). Do you really think it will take a couple months for you to get your unit exchanged? lol That sounds more like the nightmares I had with mp4nation and the Sflo2s.... With Hisound my unit reached them in just under 2 weeks of shipping. Then they shipped it out a week or so after that when they got stock back in. Generally shipping from China takes a week to get to me. But since it was Singapore that time it took like 3 week lol. But it sat in New York for a damn week...

 

Maybe I'm just remembering it in exaggerated form. The first time, I had sent it insured for too much (Jack had given me good instructions, but I had to have my wife send it, and when she called to ask about insurance, I didn't remember the instructions he gave me. Seems the duties are high if you insure for what it's worth...the opposite way I'd normally insure something. Jack refused it, it came back to me, I had to reship it, so it really did seem to take forever. 

RECORD CLEANING-I won't go into all the details, but you need a dedicated machine with cleaning fluid and suction, actually 2 if you're a real perfectionist, since you have to put a dirty record on for the first cleaning, and once it's cleaned, you don't want to put it on the mat that had the dirty one...you get the general idea, I'm sure, spare you the Nitty Gritty (a vinyl pun). I have a cleaning machine, it mostly holds piles of cd's (like most people's exercize machine holds clothes). Anyway, hope it's more like your experience, guess I'll compare it to the C3 (if that ever arrives...)

That is why I said I hate Singapore post. The most retarded mailing system I've used yet....

You ordered one already? So far the N1 is really impressing me so far. I'm really interested in hearing how the N3 fairs. I think it could be on the level of the Studio V in sound quality and potentially better in some respects. I personally like the N1s bass better :).

Jack was kind enough for to allow me to trade in the Rocoo BA for studio V golden edition. Right now he had no stock left so I am waiting for him to let me know when he will have stock. I dont want to push my luck by requesting a trade in for the N3, I be more than happy with the N3.  x-D

I still regret on caving in on ipod touch, wasted 400 there.

So you are not to enthralled with the purchase I take? I don't even use my iphone4 for music anymore... I mean it sounds decent but a downgrade from what I'm using now. So there's really no point in using it IMO other than for phone calls and internet surfing :P.

 

Yep the N1 Player sounds really good IMO. I wasn't expecting it to sound this good and in such a small package.... I really like the convenience of it. I mean the UI isn't perfect but it isn't half bad either. I really like the bass on it :-). But you know you could easily sell that ipod here on headfi. It should move like hot cakes lol. I remember when I won an ipod touch from the stacker machine and sold it here :).

No there is no obligation to buy but since he accepted my request I will honor it with a purchase. I honestly could live with the Studio V UI. I bought the touch thinking I will go down the venturecraft socket DD1 DAC road but than again I realized since the day I bought the touch I never have taken it out once! I either carry the nano 7G or the sansa clip+. Touch to me is not really portable, its size and form make it hard for me to change track on the go. I really love the nano 7G sound and power. I used to use Rocoo BA on daily basis but sadly one of the navigation key died. Hence that is why I sent it back to hisound. I loved how Rocoo BA paired with arrow 4G.

 

I might put the touch on sale but I know the loss will be too much. It still has like 10 months warranty! 64 GB worth of space, all that other fancy stuff but an amp section that sounds nowhere as good asmy 20 dollar clip+ !

Nah audionewbi you can still get a decent price for it. So you paid $400 for it? What size memory? Just put up a good add with good pictures (with a good description). I'm sure you can get a buyer for around $350.00 if indeed it cost you $400+. Generally speaking you'll really only get screwed over when manufacturers play with the prices of the items (dramatically reducing the sale prices) which can lead to a major loss upon selling the item. For example I took a $300+ dollar loss on my Audiotechnica W3000ANVs. To say I was extremely pissed would be an understatement.... With apple that is near to none. Generally the prices are very consistent with their goods.

If you want to make the most back on your iPod touch I recommend selling it on eBay, not our boards here. Much bigger audience there, with a higher priority for Apple devices. You will take a hit, but with 64GB of storage the price will be the best you can grab either auction or buy it now.

True but wouldn't the ebay fee really dig into his profits there? I really didn't have a good experience selling my Dell 2707 Ultra Sharp monitor there. They take way too much IMO.

Yes, the fee's will hit you pretty hard for an item of that price, but you will still come out higher than our boards I imagine.
