I bought mine new from Amazon. Refurbs are great deals though.
FS deals are great as well. I bought my 8GB clip+ for $40 on a local pickup. That can't be beaten and I keep going back to the clip+ despite buying more expensive players but end up selling those instead for the clip+
is Fuze better in any way over the Clip+, except for playing video?
No. The sound quality is the same. The only difference is the battery life and video capacity.
I bought a refurbished Sansa Fuze and I love it. The expandable memory option is a huge bonus and the sound quality is great. I'm really loving this as my primary portable music player.
i just got my 8GB Clip+ in the mail. This thing is smaller than anything EVER. haha.
I swore I grabbed my hard drive of FLACs, but apparently not So I'm stuck on a trip all weekend without being able to try this puppy out
how the heck do you get Quick Start to work with rockbox utility on this thing? Complete Installation and Minimal Installation are both greyed out.
nevermind, I got it. Had to do it manually and on a PC (my mac couldn't see the hidden files)
24 bit FLAC in my pocket? Yes please!
I bought my Clip+ brand new from Amazon. It was around $50 for the 8GB version back then.
amp'ing this with my Headroom Total Bithead amp w/batteries and my Clip+ Rockbox'ed with FLAC sounds great. Using Shure SE530's and there is hardly any innate noise, even turned up all the way. That is, you'll have some floor static if it's in the recording if you have sensitive IEM's, but if there is no noise in the recording there will be none or almost none in your ears
Listening to the 2009 Beatles Stereo remasters, and it's lovely.
what do you guys use for portable amps?
Fuse+ just announced:
SUPPORTS FLAC NATIVELY
The Sansa Fuze+ portable media player's broad audio and video CODEC pack ensures easy compatibility with most major media formats.

Anyone have any experience using this with ultra-sensitive IEMs? My problem is always that most amps make my TRIPS way too loud too quickly; would I be able to get away with running this unamped? Or would there be really awful hiss...
I do. I think the Clip+ as well as the Fuze is well suited for sensitive IEM's.
Very interesting. Out of sheer curiosity, something this small and cheap can't possibly have a line out, can it? How do you use an external amp with it? Just max the HPA volume?
Yup. Set the volume to 0.
