    5 Reasons NOT to buy an iHP-120

    Quote: Originally posted by Eagle_Driver Actually, high bitrate files worsen the battery life of any MP3 player with hard storage, whether CD or HD. So it's not Apple's fault. Wrong. The Rio Karma, for example, is able to utilize FLAC without compromising battery life. The...

    5 Reasons NOT to buy an iHP-120

    Quote: Originally posted by carlin I think you are completely wrong...first of all, if you are getting 5.5 hours of battery life, you need to get your iPod fixed. My iPod gets at most 9 hours, usually 8. And thats plenty for daily use, at least for me, maybe not for road warriors...

    iPod AAC encoding question

    Quote: Originally posted by markkr I just sync'd my iPod with Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon one in 224 AAC and one in alt-preset-extreme MP3. Its probably in my head but I think the AAC sounds just a little smoother?? Of course it is in your head. If anything the MP3 should...

    It is not "plastic." It is a high-density molded injectible polymer. Quite a difference.

    Karma sound V. iHP sound?

    Of course the Karma sounds better than the iPOD. To those seasoned, it is like comparing a quality import beer to Coors Light: they both contain alcohol, yes..... but one is AMERICAN. The iPOD is both American and built to the standards of a baby soother, in my opinion. The Karma is built...

    Battery life and file formats - a basic primer

    I noted the iPOD in at least one of the profiles of the members "discussing" this -- as suspected. Folks (esp. zeals), the iPOD is built like a toy and as such it indeed suffers the wrath of shortcuts. I know for a fact that battery life does not drop off when the Karma is used with Wave or...

    iHP or iPOD

    iHP-120 => Direct transfer from CD to MP3 (FhG encoder => 256 kbps is transparent) Apple's AAC encoder is rubbish anyway. PsyTEL, however, is very good; a substantial improvement at all bitrates vs the best MP3 has to offer. Apple is a superficial company for superficial times.
