    Stolen Cowon D2 and 5pros what should I get to replace?

    I would recommend the Sansa Fuze only if you like to use your mp3 for music. It's sound is great and in my opinion better than the D2 even though I LOVED the D2. The biggest difference to me from the Fuze is the soundstage, it's much bigger and I really like the cleaner sound it gives .

    Best sounding mp3 player?

    I don't which is the best sounding but the player I had before was the Cowon D2 and I now have the Sansa Fuze. Truly, I love both. Both have GREAT sound quality but because of the bass roll off of the D2 I didn't really feel the bass compared to the Fuze which isn't good, at least to me. The...

    I love the D2 but I keep hearing about the bass rolloff. How can I stop that from happening? The D2 is one of the best in SQ and I love i but I'm thinking of buying a Sansa Fuze.

    Best SQ. MP3 Player.

    MP3 Player Suggestions

    Well I got my D2 stolen and was extremely happy with it. So I'm either gonna be saving up for a 16gb D2 or another player. I don't like iPods and I don't NEED videos, themes, flash and other things. I only used D2 for my music which I loved. I would like good SQ as good as the D2 or better. I...

    Adventures in Linux

    Haha. Good that your trying out Linux. I've got 100% experience in that area because I'm a fellow hacker . Ubuntu is okay as a Windows replacement (kinda) but me and my FreeBSD are one.

    If not the Cowon D2, then what??

    Bitrate Preference?

    What bitrate do you guys prefer when encoding? I recently started getting all my albums up-to-date in 320kb because I'm planning on buying new iems and I don't want the low bitrates to ruin my new experience lol.

    Atrio M5 vs Sleek Audio SA6

    from what i've been reading..the Sleek Audio SA6 are recommended MUUCH more. It's also great that you can take the parts apart because then if something breaks u can easly replace the part instead of buying the whole product again. In general...what Ive heard is that the SA6 is better in...

    What IEMs do you recommend around $300?

    I have a Cowon D2 which how everyone knows is a bit on the "cold" side. I listen to a lot of different types of music; Hip-hop (not new but old Illmatic type), Jazz, Cumbia, Reggaeton, Classic and many more. I'm a perfectionist so deciding IEMs is very hard. I chose around $300 dollars...
