Good price for this player.
#2
I bought one the other day to use to playback Audio-books and its perfect for that.
#3
Great deal.....
#4
Great little player. Fantastic price! Have some more heat!

Just make sure you set it to "Rest of the world" to ensure you get the full volume range. Also, be careful how much memory you add via the expansion slot, coz there's a limit on the total number of files it will manage (around 3000 I think?). Depending on what you listen to it may mean there's no way to use the full memory of a 16GB expansion card.

Still an absolutely cracking little player tho, and an absolute steal at this price.

great price. bought one around the 38 mark a few weeks back and have been really impressed by it
#6
You can get around that using a mod-rom like RockBox
if you're not comfy using a mod-rom, chances are you're hardly gonna need more capacity than8 or 16gb (_;)
#7
Best small MP3 player - love mine, audio quality is amazing, dont let the price fool you this is a seriously good audio chip. Also great memory function for podcasts/audio books - remembers where you were when you go back to one, and if you accidently skip forward or back, a skip in the other direction will put you back where you were, not at the beginning or end! great stuff for clumsy goons like me. :) you CANNOT get better for this price IMHO (oh and SD card is fully integrated, unlike the zen rubbish)
#8
Great player, great price. Heat added. The supplied earphones are pants. Invest in a set of Sennheiser CX 300-II or whatever else takes your fancy and your lugholes are in for a real treat.
#9
does it have a sleep timer?
#10
What code gets it for this price please?
#11
Whoops, just re-read it.

Ignore me. :{

The reason the sound level's limited with the "Europe" region setting is because of EU law i *think*, something to do with not wanting us all to go deaf.
I keep mine set to Europe for this reason, it's usually loud enough for me, except if im wanting to play very ambient music on a train.

oooh.. Does anybody know what is the battery life like on these?

oooh.. Does anybody know what is the battery life like on these?

Playing flacs and accessing the sd card can drain it quite a bit, but after a full charge you should get around 8 hours playing mp3's off the inbuilt flash card.
#15
So, flacs off the SD card will give me a couple of hours? ;o)
#16
ANYGOOD?
does it have a sleep timer?


Yes it does. Never actually measured battery life but l use it every day and charge it up every two or three days, so l estimate 9-10 hours. Use of the radio, having the music equaliser on and using an SDHC card, all increase power consumption slightly.

Never actually though about it but i guess the mp3 bitrate encoding (e.g. 128 kbit/s vs 320 kbit/s) must also make a difference to the power consumption and hence battery life.
#18
for the geeks theres also rockbox :-P think it improves battery too
#19
Interersting... what are the advantages of rockbox though?
#20
Good deal, purchased! :D

Yes it does.

Great price !!

Hi, first post.

I use this with a class 4 8GB sd card, Rockbox firmware and Senheisser MX 760 headphones. I'm happy with this setup.

Highlights of Rockbox firmware:
14hrs from FLAC
16hrs from MP3 (I don't use)
Seemless playback

Amazing little player, very small and durable bought one last month XD
#25
Had one of these (albeit 4gb) for about 6 months now; the best £25 I have spent this year. Ogg encoded at q 3 (~100 kbps) sounds fine and having the expansion slot is brilliant. Be warned however that with ~9GB of files the player does take a while (2-3 mins) to refresh its music library index when any are added / removed. But ordinary start-up (without having changed any files or removed / replaced the card) is very quick.
#26
Almost tempted, but, one more questions. How difficult is it to find what you want with such a tiny screen?

Thanks ;O)
#27
Great deal, ordered.

Rockbox is a great addition to this player (I already have a 2Gb model)

it *is* a very small screen, but really crystal clear.

The original firmware lets you browse by ID3 tags - artist, album, track etc.

Clip+ Manual

Can't remember if it lets you browse a directory structure, but Rockbox does and it also has accelerated scrolling when browsing through lists. Rockbox also allows a change in font size, so you stand a chance fitting more content on (though not much difference in the length of a list)

But is it as good as an iPod?

JOKE! :D
#30
can this get plugged into a docking station? any advice would be appreciated
#31
I have one of these. It really is a nice little media player. I am running Rockbox on it too and makes a nice difference as you can alter a lot more settings.
Yeah it would suit a docking station that you can connect to with a 3.5mm jack.
#32
DO Amazon still do cashback?
#33
Nice price.Heated.
#34
I`ve got the 4gb model and can confirm the sound quality with sennheiser CX300 headphones is
superb. I put an 8gb micro sd card in, probably wrongly, and have had problems with
duplication of tracks when dowloading from Windows Media Player. Every time I add tracks
the whole library doubles so some tracks I`ve got 4 times over! Now being a fairly old HUKD
member (61) I`m sure someone will say match the player with the same size micro sd card, this
probably sounds like where I`m going wrong, but any other suggestions welcome. Great site
and I`ve learned (and lol at lot) so humour me!
#35
hi there,

First time comment. I have purchased this today, will get tomorrow. Thanks for the heads-up. One quick question, will installing Rockbox affect the warranty/30 days return on Amazon?
#36
Gah, had to really talk myself out of getting one.
Got a few FLAC albums now... need to wait til my old ipod dies a death tho.
#37
great price. ordered one - thanks OP!
#38
These are very good. Gonna use my one for recording lectures at uni. Alot to digest from one module. =D

Heat added.
#39
great little player. use a 4gb one in the gym and it goes for ages without needing a recharge. Also better sound quality than my ipod and its a quarter of the price. Screen is small but easy to read.

Honestly cant think of a negative at this price.
#40
I like mine.
I get about 6 hours, but I do play mine at high volume.
I would deffo get the US firmware for the extra volume.

Note, if you hack to Rockbox, you will probably lose the play for sure DRM playing ability.
Little known fact, if you sign up to ZUNE service (9 quid per month) you can download as much music as you like. Sync with Windows Media Player your Zune music folder, then sync to this player. Awesome. As much new music as you like for 9 quid per month. Simplez.
