    Portable Sources for the Budget HeadFi'er

    Where is the Budget Portable Source Gallery? Has that gone. I've been away from the forum a while. Seems like its now all top end stuff. I'm looking for budget/mid range portable source that takes 256GB SD cards. For the last few years, I've mostly been using music streaming apps. I'm trying...

    Huawei Ascend G300 -SQ not too shabby

    Some (those of us on  tight budget) might still be interested in this thread. I picked up Huawei Ascend G300 which is a decent budget android smart phone and finding the SQ very decent. Good FM radio on it too! Probably the best of all the phones I've used, and closest to the Sony X or my Clip+...

    Do use use streaming services on your portable.

    Do you use streaming music services and/or Internet Radio as one of the primary sources of music on your portable? For office use I was thinking I could MiFi portable and 3G subscription hotspot to stream both to a MP3 player or Mobile phone. Would eliminate the need for local or sync'ing music...

    X1050 thoughts

    I picked up a X1050 on clearance, to see what it was like. Also my Clip+ HO jack is going, and my A818 battery is quite poor these days. I've also lost the clip around the house somewhere. (its so tiny!)  The X has a bigger sound stage, but I'm not sure it sounds hugely better then the A818. The...

I was wondering does anyone know where I can get one of these delivered to Europe. I can use a extra long cable to improve the sound, but its a PITA all the...

    Best none Apple mobile phone for music?

    What do reckon is the best none Apple mobile phone for music? (iPhones been a little pricey). Preferrably with a decent camera and a decent calendar, 3.5mm jack, external music/radio controls. Cheaper the better. I had the W995 and I didn't think the camera was great, the calendar isn't as...

    Cheapo buds/IEMs query

    Incidentally why is this thread not in this forum? While the CX300/PX100 get good reviews in general I find them too bassy, and I've stopped using mine. Which makes me always question reviews that hold them up as benchmark for the budget...

    Fuze vs S639F

    Thinking of replacing my A818 with a S639F. An alternative would be the Fuze, which takes memory cards. I really want something with buttons. I have a 2G iPod Touch 8GB but I tend to use my A818 more for music simply because of the controls.

    Are there any mobile phones that do gapless?

    Are there any mobile phones that do gapless playback for DJ mixes dance sets, classical music etc. Any with bookmarks etc. Any workarounds, record all tracks as one long file etc. Do any of the Sony's have gapless using ATRAC, or the iPhone have it with ACC etc.

    Anyone using a new Zen? What card are you using in it. Whats your opinion of it? I like my A818 but was looking for something with more capacity and a radio. I have a 160GB iPod but its giving me problems. So I think it will have to go back.

    If you didn't like the Sony A818...

    Ok I got the A818, but the jurys still out for me on this. Admittedly I'm using low end earphones. But using the stock phones that came with it, its not bad, but for me its nothing special. If I use CX300's it improves a lot but it introduces hiss for me. PMX100's no hiss, but too much bass and...

    Tagging or Filetree

    If this is not the right forum for this, can someone move it? Thanks. I mainly use filetree for directory struture. Since not all my music is tagged correctly, and not all players handle tags the same. But the problem I have is that I can end up with duplicate artist folders. I might have one...
