Clip Zip 'Sport' 16Gb ? - Page 9

post #121 of 204
Thread Starter 

I see.

Well personally the only things I really care about are SQ and battery life. I'm not specially fond of RB and its annoying folders that are in the way of my navigation and that cannot be definitely suppressed.

Barely use the EQ as well so...

Holding down the power button for 15-20 seconds should force it off. Then you can turn it back on.

 

That's how it works on the Clip Zip, anyhow, and I'd be surprised if they removed this functionality from the Sport.

Finally, something small and pocket-able, with a clip, over 20 hours of battery life (give me 15 hours with FLAC/WAV and I am happy), expandable memory, and does not cost like an inane fanatical pile of poo poo.

Will buy one of these during the months to come. With a 64GB microSDXC.

Anyone try this with a full 64GB sandisk micro SD? Wondering how long the boot time is. That's one thing that annoyed me about the clip zip.

Sandisk uses a really slow FLAC decoder generally, so usually the battery life with FLAC will be half or less than what they claim for MP3.


Which is funny because FLAC is a very simple format, and with a good decoder is 2 or 3 times as fast as MP3 easily.

Philips GoGEAR models are also using this SoC.

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

 

The power transfer is just limited by the supply voltage, nothing else.  So either they go to a more complex, inefficient design to gain a few db more volume at the expense of battery life, or its limited to about the Clip series volume plus or minus a dB or two.  Thats why basically all conventional MP3 players that aren't software volume capped are within a few dB of each other in power output.  They basically do about what is possible with a 2.5v supply.

Anyone else having this problem?

That's strange your sport is freezing up. I have loaded many 1 hour podcasts & individual songs via. Micro-sd and have no problems.
Try a factory restore & see if the problems persist. If it does return it (if you're in the returning policy period) or call the manufacturer.

Can anyone confirm that an m3u playlist loaded on a micro SD card, and the mp3 files as well, works - please. If this does I'll purchase a Clip Sport @bestbuy this weekend if I can.

Really? And it does on my clipzip when it's NOT Rockboxed as well. I specifically asked about the Clip Sport, didn't I? Thanks anyways,... :-/

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.

True dat homie!
