Sansa Clip+ / Hippo Biscuit / iPod video 5.5 gen

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

 

I want to buy a DAP and my budget is around $50-60. My thought was finally between these three. Anyone had a experience with these three in term of SQ?

For the iPod video I find it used on my local forum for $80.

My setup will be directly to my Fischer FA-003 and no Amp at this time.

 

Any suggestions and opinions appreciated. Thanks :beerchug:

If you buy a used ipod, be careful of the battery - make sure it can still hold a good charge. Also, make sure the touch dial still works well. My old ipod video is still going strong, but the dial is not as responsive as it once was. The nice thing about the ipod is that adding an amp to lineout is easy with an inexpensive LOD.

With that said, when my ipod finally goes, I'll probably go for a new Sansa - smaller and cheaper, and it will give me an excuse to delete itunes once and for all!

How about their comparisons in term of SQ? thanks. Cheers! :beerchug:

I don't know the Hippo at all, and I have only briefly played with the Sansa. I know there are many Sansa owners that believe it has superior SQ to the ipod. I suspect the differences would be very minor.
