Yeah, the i9+ lacks a card slot but 32gb isn't exactly small, 29h battery life isn't that bad, and the player is apparently real nice going by posts here. With a card slot you're still basically...

I have a D2, same screen (I think) as C2/M2/D20. It's not anything to be a "fan" of but it works, if you think of the player as an audio device and the screen as a means of accessing and...

I think you should also check out Magnatune. They have 128k mp3's of their whole catalog for free (there's now an annoying voiceover at the end of each one, but you can edit it out) and if you're a...

Regular cd's by definition are always 44.1 khz, 16 bit. When you see higher bitrate flac's (unless they were pointlessly upconverted) it means they were recorded to disk/flash at the higher bitrate...

No surprise about the fake 128GB card and I'm glad you were able to get a refund without hassle. If you're saying your friend got 128GB of usable storage on his fake 256gb card for $30 or whatever,...

I use an Altoids tin for my D2 but I've always wanted one of the nice Noreve or Cowon leather cases. I've never liked silicon cases that much. And a belt holster for a DAP seems ridiculously nerdy....

I hate to tell you but that 128gb card is fake too, or has defects, or something. Real ones are still around $100.

That means nothing, the card can be programmed to report 256gb or 1tb or whatever capacity. The only real test is to write 250GB of files to it (random data) and read them all back to make sure they...
