Thanks, man! Actually, funny coincidence. I was reading another thread where you were saying the playback issue is solved, and as I read it I went to your profile to message you, and then I saw that you had just posted in my thread, haha. You actually helped me out a fair bit with purchasing my Clip+ (I've had three now - don't ask, ahahahaha).
Anyhow, after fiddling around some more I now have MORE questions, and maybe I was kinda hopin' for your guidance? :P
So, I just rockboxed my clip zip, and so far so good. I currently have build version 3.13. But I was super surprised when I went to the crossfeed section. There was this meier crossfeed feature (apparently introduced to Rockbox on the 3.6 version). So, I found this link: http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/11767
Apparently, according to the 'Details', the rockbox crossfeed on the older builds, while performing the crossfeed feature, created a frequency response imbalance. Now, I don't know if you remember, but I'm a FREAK about having a flat frequency response (I have KRK KNS 8400s and the Clips). According to the aforementioned comments, it is the lower register frequencies that became louder, thus becoming boomy and imbalanced. Supposedly,
"A difference with the crossfeed already present in rockbox, is that this algorithm keeps the total spectrum flat (the one currently in rockbox accentuates low-frequency signals, making it sound a bit muffled)."
^^^^^^ (from the 'Details' section)
Anyhow, my questions are now this:
1: Is the sound quality, as well as the type of sound (detail, frequency response, depth, etc) the exact same on the Clip+ as it is on the Clip Zip?
2: Do you have any suggestions as to how I can make the frequency response flat on the Clip Zip?
3: Does the meier crossfeed setting on the 3.13 Rockbox build enable me to achieve a flat frequency response?
4: Having any headphone jack problems? So far my Clip Zip has been great (I have worked out with it, dropped it, tossed it, EVERYTHING). But I am afraid of the headphone jack problem.
and last but not least
5: Is there a portable player that has a flat frequency response, with a crossfeed setting that doesn't alter it?
*sigh of relief*
Yeah, I know I'm compulsive about this, haha.
