Clip Zip 'Sport' 16Gb ? - Page 8

post #106 of 166

^ definitely cheaper. How are the loading times? How many files are on the sd card? That's where the zip's stock fw was disappointing to me, it would crash if I had too many files on the sd card.

Generic term used while subbed......my bad.

Pretty sure it's launched already bro :P (well, in USA/most of Europe)

Also I think I have 4800~ files on my card in the Sport, and it works fine from what I can tell.

Ok so I downloaded the Sandisk Windows software to see if there were any firmware updates and the program won't even open up. I'm running Windows 8 anyone have any luck with this software yet?

post #111 of 166

There aren't any updates, and they haven't released software for updating the Sport yet.

Disappointing that Sandisk went and fixed something that was not broken. You have to wonder why they wouldn't keep the hardware the same. Like a lot of people I won't consider this without Rockbox support.

Looks pretty.

Very curious how the sound stacks up against older versions. Waiting for an in depth review. As long as it sounds good, I might get one even without rockbox. I just like the look/size of it over the zip.

I don't get why people are so negative just because there's no rockbox or people are making quick assumptions.

It'd be a bad decisions (from a logistical point of view) to start using different internal parts for this new Clip Zip.

Externally and from dimensions the Clip Zip and this Sport looks similar-ish, the chips inside can be the same.

It could be new a look same parts with some new software.

 

Rockbox or not, I'm fine. It's only just been released anyway, give it time.

Rock box just gives so many more sound options...I won't buy unless it can be rock boxed

The Clip Sport does not have the same internals as previous Clip players. This has been confirmed:

I think people are negative not merely because of the near impossibility of a timely Rockbox port, but because of the several actual issues with the firmware built into the device.

I actually like this player compared to the clip +. I've never used rock box thinking the player may brick or something but for ppl who are used to it are definetly going to want something of it on the Sport. I feel the new sport is more rugged & sounds far better than what the clip + had to offer just using the sony V6. Tried it with the Digizoid and bass becomes a bit muddy when the zo2 is near the orange to red indicator.

I've had mine for about a week now. Never owned the other models so I can't comment on the differences, but I really like it. It does, however, freeze up A LOT. I will go to change the song and it will freeze. This is real frustrating because the only way I know to unfreeze it is to let the battery drain all the way down. This definitely needs to be fixed. Anyone else having this problem?

The SoC is ATJ2127:http://www.actions-semi.com/en/productview.aspx?cat=87&id=118

Philips GoGEAR models are also using this SoC.

Maybe it has more driving power than the Clip Zip.(15mw@16ohm)
