Colorfly C3 Appreciation and Discussion Thread - Page 16

post #226 of 2170

So far has anyone (respected head-fiers) contacted ROCKBOX.ORG for rockboxing the Colorfly C3?

I am not so optimistic about Colorfly will release the new firmware very soon to solve all the addressed issues in C3.

Temporary I put C3 purchase on hold untill all the known issues have been solved by Colorfly. mad.gif

IMO rockbox will never be on Colorfly C3 never, just not enough interest, also how they would manage such a task on that screen is beyond me (but I'm sure they could). And.... the way things are going I'm sceptical about any updates soon, so don't hold your breath.To be honest the problems we're experiencing look much worse on these boards in words than they actually are. Until you have one in your hand It's very hard to understand what we're talking about or grasp the level of a problem.

Some of it needs fixing and other stuff is just nit picking. But in all honesty the player is still selling tons because it sounds that good, and none of the bugs really prevent it from doing it's main purpose. "playing music" Just jump in mate, spend $100 and enjoy the build and players sound quality. Gotta be in it to win it, and reading to much just becomes confusing.

Im looking to buy a c3 but the pop issue has got me kinda worried, is it really that bad or is it something you get used to?

I see they are cheaper on ebay at around £70 from china though :/ Theres one on amazon for £125 is it worth getting one there instead because I don't wanna wait for the dispatch from china

regarding the 'noise', I think the best option for you would be to buy a unit and see if it is an issue for you or not. what is an issue for some on here may not be an issue for others. only you will know if it is an issue for your ears!

I never even register the so called issue with the noise it's that unobtrusive.  At least until i read about it.

I doubt it would bother me.

We're achieving good results with C&C BH and Colorfly C3 atm.

You're welcome.

I also see you own HM-601, the amp in question pairs beautifully with 601's line out. I'm using that rig atm over a Colorfly CK4.

This is not going to help my bank account lol. I have been reading up on this amp for the past hour. Now I need to find out the best place to order it :)

Again thanks for all your help.

After much reading., I really wanna buy one of these. I wanted to buy a RE0 for the clip+ but seems it would be underpowering them. Anyways, I think these will outperform the clip+ in all the ways?

 

Will these be able to drive the RE0 like they're supposed to be driven or the PK3?

 

Again, I need to mention that I prefer a neutral/analytical sound.

I would've opted for the CK4 but H2OFidelity mentioned that they don't perform similarly when using internal and external memory. So that's a major deal breaker especially since the C3 is cheaper.
 

 

Any synergy recommendation with this player?

Yes, C3 will out perform the Clip+, we have a member here who actually owns C3 and RE0, I suggest you msg him with your question.

He's a nice guy I speak to him sometimes...

Yep, my CK4+ does sound slightly different between internal and external memory, others say they can't hear the difference so take it as you wish. But certainly mine performs better from it's limited 8GB internal memory. tongue.gif The player has let me down. And to be honest C3 has the better presentation anyway and isn't really that far behind CK4. They hold a similar flavour, you can read my CK4 vs C3 comparison here...

Mind you this was written before I discovered the CK4 problem.

I can't promise you will enjoy what I do though a few members have gone for the T-Peos H-100 Hyrbid and C3 combo, and are really enjoying.

Here's the H-100 thread.

All that should keep you busy for a while. wink.gif

Can C3 feed your Re0? Is the bass light on these?
