Gotta catch em all... wink.gif
It appears so unfortunately.
Just presets mate, no 5 band EQ etc. Hopefully you won't need them.

With discovery from Uncle H20 ..its hard to keep me head above water ..rough sea ahead...lol.

Thanks a lot !!!

Quite pleased thank you.:wink_face: You guys know that you're just burning the other end of the something else needs to be demoted to elevate this candle. I like my quirky HiSounds, DX90 (with dual battery:tongue_smile:), AK120 I had and would probably like this as well. If I could buy one, I would.  

 

Let me be 1st in line for any Aussie that decides to pass it forward.:smile:

Tonight I've been driving 100ohm Etymotic ER4S with Kogan no problem. Listening to London Grammar 'Hey Now' at a volume level of 26/31, remembering I listen quite loud I wouldn't need anymore volume personally. Also earlier full-size Shure SHR440 at a comfortable 15/31, Kogan didn't even flinch. Quite amusing the detail coming out with ER4S atm. ;p

If you listen at 20, then it must be pretty powerful. I'll probably only use 12 or so lol.

Just pulled trigger on this one, I'm gonna pair this with my Topping NX1.

I don't have Topping NX1 any longer though I know C&C BH is almost exactly the same footprint.

It should look something like this.

I should be getting one soon, we'll see what the hype is about :wink_face:

Having tested Kogan with nothing but the micro sd (external storage) I went to put some files onto the internal memory. 

To my surprise I cannot find a full 8GB of internal storage. 

 


I guess this would explain the added (included) 8gb micro sd card, hence why Kogan is sold as an "8GB player"

Kind of tricky advertising there, but try not to worry, the 8GB included card will get you going, I hardly use internal memory so it's not a big deal for me.

I do apologise this wasn't mentioned previously though.


Edit:


I've checked the camera / video camera settings, luckily Kogan's one step ahead and included an option in the menu for "save path" so you can tell the player where to save your camera photo's and video recordings etc... So there's no problem setting the player to save everything to external memory (if photo's and videos are your thing). Not to sure how award winning the picture quality will be though.:tongue:

Haha, I was one step ahead mate, here you go:

it has these menu options:

Preview
View paramiter
Switch to DV (whatever that means)
White balance
Brightness
Exposure mode
Special effect
Save path
Resolution
Self-timer
Shutter sound
Date stamp
Zoom (at the actual camera)



 

 




It's not bad mate!

Not bad, it's actually decent.

That's in a room at night time. With some setting tweaking and a nice daylight ocean view you'll be receiving calls from National Geographic! :tongue_smile:

I was expecting a lot of noise actually... Grain and late 1990's Nokia phone picture quality

What fun. Always exciting hearing a new sound signature. I will have to get my Aussie friend to bring one. THX. Great find.smily_headphones1.gif

Got back from a festival and first thing that I had to see on head-fi was this...

**** me -  29$-DAP, which can drive ER4S and Havi B3?! :eek:
No international availability :eek: -> :(

 How long did it last with the ER4S?
