I am looking for the H120/H140 to pair with my iBasso D12 and I came across this in the classified. Read and found out that it means the capacity is only 15GB and the RAM is half (16MB) of that compared to H120/H140 (32MB). I wish to ask if anyone had owned the H115 previously (and moved on to H120/H140) and noticed any difference in performance? Will it have negative impact if I run RockBox and play lossless files? Thanks.

I play ALAC lossless files with iHP-100s players. The player needs to read the hard drive disk more frequently than iHP-120/140 player which may be due to the smaller RAM memory. The performance (e.g. booting up and browsing songs) among the players is quite similar using Rockbox.


So despite the need for more frequent reading of HDD, browsing speed for songs is still pretty much the same as with H120/140? But I wonder if I choose to upgrade the HDD to a bigger capacity, will the decrease in performance starts to surface?

i recommend doing a compact flash mod with these players. it makes it more responsive, battery life is amazing (get a cameron sino upgrade lithium battery) the wired remote is awesome!! and it starts up in no time
