These must exist since my old ZipClip is good for over 8hours on a fucking tiny ass battery, but whenever I have looked everything is rated for around 20 hours.
An ipod with a lot of modifications could possibly reach that. >3000mAH battery >iflash board, thinner than a hdd to accommodate the large battery >thick rear cover >modification to the internal frame There are some ruizu and victure pmps on amazon that advertise 100 hour batteries as well, if you don't want to build your own.
So guys i have this old ipod touch 5g, how good is the audio quality? should i use it?
don't you have to use apple software? or a Mac?
Not that user, but the requirement for most apple touch devices to be used with something that isn't itunes is usually firmware 2.x-3.x. It had to do with apple locking out devices from other media players/managers with updates for "security" reasons.
I'm assuming you're referring to the clip jam or clip sport. What's the difference between these and why are they considered inferior to the original clip/clip+?
Been doing some testing, has anyone else had an issue with the recent M3k Rockbox release where the player refuses to work in usb and dac mode while this version is installed? flashing the original FW or an older version works fine, as long as im using the Fiio FW and not Rockbox when trying to use it on a pc
>clip/clip+ The clip uses a different SoCthan the clip+, and it doesn't have an expansion slot. The clip+ and clip zip use the same AMS SoC, which is regarded as high quality, both have an expansion port. The clip zip has a larger color screen. All three can have rockbox installed onto them. The clip jam and sport both use a different, inferior SoC's, neither can run rockbox. Both have expandable storage.
There are better instructions, even videos on youtube. I honestly think that link was only included because the author is a freetard.
>>not being disturbed by notifications You can turn notifications off, to vibrate, or to silent. Are you RETARD?
>The PLENUE D is capable of up to 100 hours of continuous playback for MP3 files and 51 hours for high-resolution lossless files via its power-saving circuitry and battery. It features 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded via a microSD card for increased flexibility in storage options.
i am about to pull the trigger on buying this. anyone know if you can or can not delete file directly from the device. i prefer to dump lots of music on my player and delete stuff i don't like or get tired of.
>There is an user that always comes in and posts his r3 with kanas. Maybe he'll show up soon. that's me! see and i like it i miss some features of rockbox with it, but i'm used to it now, and it has a much better DAC than most, and plays all the hires stuff and also can be used as a USB DAC, and a bluetooth receiver if you're into that sort of thing kanas pro + hiby r3 is my holy grail so far
Are sansafags stuck in 2013, or do they suggest to buy it for $100 it currently costs? I had a clip+ back then, and it was amazing, but I lost it. Never found a replacement for reasonable price.
i've had a sansa clip since the came out (went through 4 of them until i got the hiby r3) but i figured i was spending enough to get a more expensive DAP and jumped ship if you just want a nice portable DAP with rockbox, you cant go wrong, but i wouldnt pay more than $60 for it (which is how much i payed the last time i bought one on ebay about a year and a half ago) dont get the benjie t6, it sucks, if you're going to move up get a shanlin or a hiby and dont look back
Is libvorbis with the lancer patch actually faster to decode?
If I shouldn't be using flac for portable use, what should I use?
Is there a way to loop a song on the m3k? I was trying to do it the other day, but I could only loop the playlist. Thought that was kind of weird. Then again, maybe the creators thought a person who would want to loop a song continuously is weird, so they didn't have that as a function.
ogg, aac or atrac3
What's wrong with using flac for portable usage?
it's a waste of space
Good thing I've got the money for space I guess.
just because you do, doesnt mean it's efficient. it's still a waste of space.
And that's okay.
well, obviously a waste of space like you will defend it. birds of a feather flock together after all.
I wish there was something similar to the Zune HD that could do opus.
Tell me about it user
what's wrong with it?
That's not the point you consumerist whore
Rockbox support for x02 when?
nothing well i like getting things and upgrading them etc. I got it faulty has had a new battery back plate screen and an iflash board. So there nothing else to do to it
Anything with variable bitrate. MP3 Vs ogg on 256+ kl/s sound the same.
Could we merge iemg with PMP? Portable audio general or something.
yeah sure. just make sure make the thread as soon as this one dies and merge the OP templates . I'll make one if I can.
does anyone have any guides/resources on how to backlight a Ipod 4g with monochrome display? a second-hard store in my city claims to have one and am thinking of getting it user stop hoarding cheap guitars you'll regret it, trust me give me it
>sansa clip cost a fortune >chink pmps flodd the market >rockbox is dead What to get?
Kinda want a Walkman NWA45, don't want to break the bank with the new one. Looks pretty great, anyone here have experience with it?
i have one but its only 512MB and does not play every MP3 (crashes and reboots on certain files)
This is the best /pmp/ setup. Here's why
>Og /pmp/, establishing everything. >Excellent sound quality if you know what you are doing >Limited storage capacity, unlimited storage potential for music. This is great because now you have to think about the music that you want to listen to instead of dumping 1000's of songs on a dap and never listening to half of them. >Puts you back in tune with your music as you need to listen to it when being recorded to make sure it sounds good. >Learning to record correctly with correct bias and record level is fun. >Making mixtapes is fun as fuck >Battery can be up to 40 hours playtime >Modern features still available (track skip, repeat 1/all, a/b) >Built to last decades not 5 minutes. Built out of quality materials(pic related is 17years old and in perfect working condition) >If you are into it, there nothing more aesthetic looking available, other than say minidisc.
I love tape Walkmans, have too many. Might post them all for an OP photo.
>minidisc I still want a minidisc player so fucking bad. I want an MD deck to put in my car.
Please do. Me too, I love my Minidisc for audiobooks and podcasts. With lp4, they sounds reasonable and I can store 5 hours of content on one disc. I've got a HI-MD player but the discs are too expensive, I can get a nice metal tape (MA90) for the price of a HI-MD. I should start using my MD for music again as it shares a lot of the same qualities as cassette.
Fuck. Guess I'd stay with the M3K-rockboxed route then. Probably another laggy-ass overpriced Android DAP with a short battery life.
LG V20 for $200 or Sony NW-A55 for the same price? Both are brand new.
android and 20~ hour battery life is garbage.
So if I were to get a sony pmp then it would be something like nwa45? Or anything similar? The main selling point of the a45 is the battery life
right, although the a45's battery life, in my case at least, doesn't go anywhere near 45 hours. it lasts around 30~ hours in my case.
It is not as aesthetic after going through the washer but it still runs fine
