Ok cool. Silly me.

Does anyone know how the sound compares to the hisound nova? Also how is the reliability of this player? Are the issues ive been reading in this thread mainly just with the firmware or is it a hardware issue? Thanks :normal_smile :

For a start the Studio's amp is about 10 x more powerful, in my experience the N3 only works with in ears, it cant drive any of my over ears.
I like the sound of both though the 3rd is a bit more refined.

I'm back to 111223. The new FW ended up too warm for me and I like the scrolling more than I had imagined. :redface:

Yeah, I went back to the original (for my unit), also.  Could never get it to NOT screw up my folder order and the much longer scan/start-up time was a real PITA.

 

However I did notice a slight change in sound from the re-format...maybe just placebo, but I swear there is more bass coming out now...

I tried the latest firmware and I too had to go back to the older one. The scrolling actually worked but it was very slow, about 3-4 seconds between each line. After owning the device for almost 2 years, I just found out that it supports Hi-Res files! It plays 24bit 48kHz music no problem! My 3rd Anniversary now sounds even better! Anybody tried it with the new Sandisk 128GB microsd?

someone else noticed change in sound on new fw ?

I think there is

There is a slight difference from what I recall but I didnt see the difference as note worthy. The firmware was altogether less funtional and more buggy. I recommend staying on the older FW.

This.

 

I'm actually thinking of asking Jack if it would be possible to adapt a firmware that would:

 

  • Keep the scrolling
  • Allow the user to manually select whether or not to update the library or not.

 

The idea of manually updating would mean instant boot.  I'm using mine now only in folder mode - so it's a PITA waiting for the software initialisation each time it starts.  Far better for me to simply browse the folders.

 

Thoughts?
