My guest it's an external battery charger.

You are correct sir I always forget to charge it until the last moment so I keep one around just in case.

I just put the C3 back together but it didn't want to power on. I assume the battery probably drain from the water. I'm currently charging the unit and was able to play music. It still sound pretty good  etysmile.gif
 so now just hoping the battery and/or the board didn't get damage .

Update: unit was fully charge and it seems to retain the charge normally. I've been listening all morning and so far it's the same great experience.

Cheers!

Yes, there surely are. Most of us purchase through this seller, you will have no problems.

thanks alot mate...he was the one i was looking at initially...guess i will order it tomorrow. 

 

also do you think i will need an extra amplifier to power my headphones better...im hoping i dont and that the c3 would suffice considering that both my iem and headphone are rated at 25ohms...

 

btw would i have to pay import vat and customs charges for the c3 as im in the uk...

 

sorry for asking so many questions lol o2smile.gif

It depends on how efficient your headphones are. The c3 is slightly less powerful than a sansa clip. 

I'm not in uk but I'm in eu and my package wasn't held at the customs, so I avoided paying 20% VAT and additional customs charges. The package will be labeled with a lot lower value, so unless you've got bad luck and the customs have decided to be very thorough exactly that day it arrives, you should be fine and the package should go straight to the post office. Also bigbargainonline uses Singapore Post, so it should arrive in around 7-14 days.

I think the Denon D2000 won't sound at their best. They are low impedance but the bass require good current that only an external amplifier can provide. In my opinion of course

thank you for your help kova4a....i will see how me headphones work with the c3 and then decide later if to buy an amp or not regular_smile%20.gif
