Pictures of Your *Mid-Fi* Portable Rig ($200 - $600) - Page 37

post #541 of 750
Went a little old school today. 3G ipod with a 128GB SD card for a hard drive biggrin.gif Had posted this in the other thread, but figured it was also very Mid-Fi as I got the 3G iPod for cheap on eBay with no HDD.

3G iPod > Fiio LOD > Leckerton UHA 6S.MKII > Bose IE2

No rockbox?

Not yet, havn't tried it on my 3rd and 4th gen iPods, just my 5.5 gen iPod and I didn't seem to like it. It was a little slower then the Apple OS, and not as easy to navigate. Any music I aquire recently is all Apple Lossless, so I don't really have any benefit from FLAC (I think redface.gif).

Thought I may still try it again. One of the growing pains was the iPod would cut out transfering music. And so transfering 90+ gigs was nearly impossible and a headache because I had to do it in smaller chunks. but now since I have a iPod firewire/USB cord, I can plug the iPod into the Wall and the laptop and I can transfer everything at once. No cut out.

That said, I may go back to trying Rockbox.

I will also be doing a flash conversion on a near mint 2nd Gen iPod biggrin.gif

Neither. Do you know what vinyl records are? You can't "rip" vinyl, just record the output of a turntable with an Analog to Digital Converter (a recording interface). Then you can use some specialized software to remove clicks and pops, normalize the recording, etc… Then you can convert the final recording to FLAC, ALAC or whatever. iTunes can play ALAC.

Sorry, I meant "does anyone know if itunes can record vinyl?" I already have the equipment :). I know it can play back 96/24 files, which is what I plan to use...

Do you need a preamp? Have you been able to tell any difference in sound?

@johndoe
The Jury's still out but having the preamp allows me to increase the music detail volume without raising the main volume too much & getting too much hiss from the E12. That's the plan anyway....

That was spoke of in the E12 thread about the hiss, it must be higher than my hearing as my E12 doesn't hiss...

I don't hear a hiss from mine either.
