I'm still unable to get her to play more than two songs in a row, despite much futzing with the repeat settings.  I occasionally get the between song "pop", but that doesn't bother me so much.  Any advice on how to get my new baby to play straight through?

thanks,

Eddy

I have my repeat setting on "All" and everything works fine here. Plays each file in a folder once.

Thanks H2OFidelity, I've done that (or I thought I had) and still have the issue.  Perhaps I am not setting the "all" correctly.  I'll go check it out again.

I have mine set to All and i get the exact same thing. Should it be on All or Repeat All?

Just "All"

Try doing a soft reset maybe above the headphone jack? Rather strange.

Anyone notice any difference in output volume with the new firmware upgrade?  It's probably me, but it seems to sound a bit quieter.

Thinking of picking one of these up over summer purely for fun. Right now I'm running an iPod which I adore for simplicity and space. 

 

Where would be the safest/most used place to pick one up?

 

 

Found a good 64gb card, presume it can be used?


What are the biggest problems I should expect to encounter? 

 

Thanks!

Most members purchase through bigbargainonline.

Yes, your 64GB card will work (formatted to FAT32)

Backwards scrolling folder titles, (at random)
Very slight popping noise between tracks (imagine a record needle hitting a spec of dust)
Slight learning curve with folder sorting / adding (still drag & drop)
Dealing with the UI designed by a zoo monkey. (but very usuable)

H2O hit most of the really annoying things about the C3, but once you learn how to cope with those annoyances it isn't too difficult.  Certainly the best bargain out there if you are looking for a good sounding player.

 

Regards.

These problems seem bearable, won't be ordering till sometime during summer but will keep you updated! Probably going to need new IEMs to get the best out of this, that'll be the first priority! Thanks for the help!

I've requested ALAC + AAC support if possible.
And to get rid of the whole EQ area and give us a Bass / Treble control that defaults to 0dB with a -10 to +10 range, similar to the E17's B&T controls except not double stepped.

That would be much more useful than the EQ...

If they fix the:
Backward Scrolling.
Noise at the end of the WAV files.
FLAC + Cue timing issue.

and add:
Bass & Treble control in lieu of the EQ
Support for ALAC & AAC

This would be one of the most amazing little players out there, a true "Best in Class" for sure.

Is Color fly working for the firmware update in C3 that allow this device to play Apple Lossless and APE file?

If that's what you want, I'd suggest contacting them and letting them know first hand:)

that way, things should get done at a much faster rate.

This is what I have requested, APE + Cue support is there now and works well, except there is no EQ in APE mode... Oh well I don't use the EQ. If they implement all in the list I have requested that Mary pass along to the engineers. We will have a Top Shelf little player IMHO.

Can someone help me with the firmware upgrade process?  I understand the current firmware (06) does not add much, but I wanted to make sure I knew how to do it for future update (?).  I downloaded the update and then attempted to open the file with winrar, but I got a message that the file was not recognized so it would not open.  I then hooked the C3 player by USB cable to my computer, and then tried to extract the file to the player directly, but I kept getting the message that the player was "not ready".  I can't imagine the process is very difficult, but I can't seem to get it to work.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

AHA!  Problem fixed, I just had to replace my USB cord.  It is a very simple process, but I had to put a pin in the small hole above the HO, to reset after finishing...
