It's not really that difficult to do, with MP3Tag....but I agree, you shouldn't have to be forced to do that.

I guess the question is, was the zip and clip+ like that?  I went straight to RB on both, so never used the original FW

No, they were not like that. I never use the original firmware on my Zip either....not since the first RB builds were appearing in the wild.

Nope, they do fine with proper tag sorting.

 

 

EDIT: ...as Achmedisdead just stated. :rolleyes:

I might end up somewhat retiring all of my clips soon anyways, currently trying to figure out a new DAP to use somewhere around 200-300, maybe more if something's good enough to make me spend a little more.  I have to admit tho with the + and the zip, slap a Fiio E6 on them, and its a very portable little music machine, quite enjoyable for IEMs.

I would love to see that lol.

 

Yes, I am looking for an upgrade to my clip zip as well. The cowon z2 looks nice but I really don't want to spend that much. I really just need something that runs android/can output to usb dac and can take a micro sd card, and is smaller than my surface pro ;) (pocketable)

So how's the SQ of the Sport compared to the Clip Zip?

The only thing I care about the Sport is better build (last longer) and SQ. So if they fail at SQ compared to cheaper model then no way.

And with RB, I bet they'll port it to these DAP real soon. The Clip line has always been the most popular RBed device.

According to some of the devs over at the Rockbox forums, it's hardware that hasn't had a port before, so it would probably take a while.

Yeah they'll have to study the hardware. But who don't tempted to support their most popular platform as soon as possible?

The hardware is fairly difficult to work with, so I would not expect a port soon, if ever.  If you want to run rockbox, but a device that runs it.

Well I'm very tempted for the Clip zip at the moment, guess I'll get it. My library is entirely ALAC, so OF is not possible.

But still curious for the SQ of the Sport though.

I started out using the Clip Zip,

then bought a used Sony E465, because it had a larger screen.

Now I can not find both of them.

I was thinking of buying another used Sony E465, but maybe i would go for the Clip Sport?

If the Sport's screen was easy for my 49 year old eyes to see.

As days go by, I'm hating this player more. Boy, wish I kept my Clip+.

 

Normally, I use this while jogging. It is clipped to my sweat pant pocket with the controls facing towards my legs, I cant believe even the contraction of my thigh muscles while jogging is enough for it to skip to the next track!

 

I listen to trance podcast which are sometimes 1-2 hours long and it is frustrating when this happens in the middle of a set.

 

The FF sucks. It FF like its almost playing. That slow!

 

The buttons are quite sensitive, instead of FF sometimes it skips to the next track.

 

They need to fix

1. The fonts (I mentioned earlier)

2. Remove the shuffle from the top of every view while browsing an album

3, ID tag is incomplete if track name is long

4. Power button needs to pressed 'at the right spot' for it power on

 

Too many simple flaws for a player at this stage of technology!

Hmmm good to know, I'll steer clear for now.

OT but wouldn't it be awesome if they started supported usb audio out on these? Clip zip with a ibasso d zero... oh my! :)
