    C&C Box XO

    I have been listening to C&C XO for the last three days. I have spent quite some time listening to a variety of music from classical to vocal and jazz with a sense of new discovery and better appreciation. It is a fanastic piece of work and it's growing on me. Here is my setup: iPod 5G...

    Holy carp, have you tried Rockbox's 5G iPod Hardware EQ?

    Just installed the latest CVS 9/18/06 build. The UI was almost ground to a halt when the software EQ was enabled. Looks like the current build is in great flux...

    Quote: Originally Posted by Febs Yes, I can make playback skip when using both the software EQ and crossfeed on a 5G. But the skipping is significantly reduced over what it was previously. If I turn off crossfeed and use only the software EQ, I have no skipping at all. Thanks for...

    Quote: Originally Posted by Febs This is not accurate. There was a change made yesterday that improved task switching so that the playback thread gets a higher priority. This does in fact result in significantly reduced skipping. It does it at the expense of the UI thread, which means...

    Update (9-18-06): Just installed the 9-18-06 CVS build. The UI was almost ground to a halt when the software EQ was enable. Looks like the current RB is in great flux... I had some good experience with the 9-16-06 build. I did not hear any MP3 skipping. No precut was needed, however the user...

    iPOD 5G: Well implemented Crossfeed in Rockbox

    I want to share some of my experience using Rockbox Crossfeed on iPOD 5G and iRiver H-120, Xin SM3-V3 and Sennhesier HD600. Rockbox is an excellent piece of software. Rockbox works especially well on iRiver and iPOD for its excellent DSP functions although iPOD still needs some optimization in...

    Coby MPC-741 + Xin SuperMini-3

    Classicalguy: Sorry for the confusion. A 1.2V rechargeable should work fine, its play time depends on the mAH. A 1.5V alkaline gives about 8-9 hours. Yes, you need the player connected to a PC via a USB to cut and paste between the memory and the SD card. Do let us know your impressions...

    Coby MPC-741 + Xin SuperMini-3

    Hi, 1. Not sure what you meant. Just put it in and use it, like a normal AAA. Use a paper clip or something to help if you have a big thumb. 2. Just turn on the FM tuner, then press Rec. That's it. The record file is in 256kbps MP3. The SQ is pretty good. 3. I filled in the internal...

    iPOD 5G: Well implemented Crossfeed in Rockbox

    I have been playing the Rockbox Crossfeed in IPOD 5G for quite some time and have been enjoying it ever since. It is one of the best implementations I have ever found in DAPs. The audio roll off problem is now fixed in the latest build. Great thanks to the Rockbox deveopers! The soundstage...

    iPod 5G: Amping Headphone-Out vs Line-Out

    Bangraman, thanks for the excellent review especially the efforts you put into it. I can imagine the whole process is like wine tasing, with careful choosing of the glassware, the chilling temperature, the vintage and of course the venue itself. Neverthesless to everyone Music is sweeter...

    Am I the only one...? re: Ipod line-out

    I have not ruled out a SQ difference in both. I believe there will be a SQ difference but just that it is so insigificant that I have not detected it in my listening. I have pointed out in another thread that the Redwine mod could possibly make a significant SQ difference by physically...

    Am I the only one...? re: Ipod line-out

    I don't have a Turbodock, and so can't comment on it. I have used Sik ram din for awhile but no longer now. It's more convenient for me to use the headphone out instead, and save the port for other things such as an external battery charger etc.. Music listening always fills with subjective...

    Xin appreciation thread

    I have been enjoying Xin's SM3-V3 and Sennheiser HD-600 for almost two years now with a lot fun and great joy. I also have the MINI-3 in place for on the road listening with my Coby MPC-741. It's amazing to see how Coby can work so well in great harmony with MIN-3 in producing such wonderful...

    Sennheiser removable cable connections; sound cuts out?

    I had a similar intermittency problem with my HD-600 not long ago. It was due to the loosening of the spring connected to the driver. I managed to fix the problem myself. You may want to take a look of the repair photos below to have an idea...

    Rockbox is indeed an excellent open source project run by volunteers with great passions. I wish to be one of them to be able to contribute to the project. They deserve our supports in whatever ways we can offer. I have Rockbox installed in both iRiver H-120 and iPod 5G. They both run great...
