    What are your clip EQ settings?

    DAPReview: TrekStor vibez flash up to 32 GB

    The vibez is a completely different hardware platform from the Karma, so yeah, it's not going to sound quite the same. I don't know how its SQ compares to the Fuze, D2 or other top rated players out today, but to my ears it's pretty impeccable. To me, one of the major appeals is the...

    Help syncing Sansa Clip in WMP - newbie

    I suggest configuring WMP to auto sync your "Sansa Clip 112708" playlist. This way, WMP will always make sure that whatever is in that playlist gets synced over to the clip. Anything you remove from the playlist gets removed from the Clip at the next sync. I do this to manage my vibez and my...

    Which DAPs can sync bidirectionally with WMP11?

    Anybody? I know there are other players out there that at least handle playcounts. I'm trying to determine if it's a problem with WMP or the vibez and need to know if ratings and last played date work on any other players. Thanks.

    Which DAPs can sync bidirectionally with WMP11?

    Hey all, I need some help. I'm trying to troubleshoot a synching issue with the vibez and WMP11. Specifically, when connecting via MTP, playcounts sync both ways between the vibez and WMP11 just fine. Here's where it gets weird: Last played date syncs back up to WMP11 just fine but now down...

    DAPReview: TrekStor vibez flash up to 32 GB

    FYI, for anyone looking for technical spec: TrekStor [MP3 players - USB sticks - hard drives] I've been Googling around to see if anyone has actually tried to measure bass roll-off on the vibez. I don't have a way to measure it myself, and I wouldn't know what to look for if I tried listening...

    About the Rio Karma

    I'm a huge Karma fan. One thing I would watch out for is the battery life. If you assume it has all original parts, that battery could be anywhere from 3-5 years old. Probably worth asking the seller what kind of battery life he gets with it now. If it's really bad, you could end up spending...
