Yes, well: the problem here is that you're not apparently not able to read a simple sentence. Which is something of a limitation in rational debate, I'm afraid.

I didn't say that some Guy On The...

I think its fine for people to listen to something and not like it, or to say that they don't think it is worth trying. I think that it's even ok for people to demand that someone making a...

You mean that its sounds made up to ***you***. But do you have any knowledge that makes your opinion worthwhile?

It's a dynamics compressor, but "just" is arguable - it's a smart dynamics compressor that compresses dynamics not for constant loudness but to make the best use of a transducer. VERY different...

Advanced DPS algorithms

Now that many of us are using Android or iOS devices, new possibilities are opening up for "improving" sound using digital signal processing.

No, I was completely agreeing with you. What's the point of having more of any sort of capability if it brings no benefit?



The Moto G seems much freer of these. I think you're hitting a very...

I think it's the cheapest phone that's good enough at *everything* that spending more feels wasteful. For example

- The screen is gorilla glass (VERY important!) with "retina level" dpi

Wow - you're right: big sensor! But compared to one of the better compacts, still highly compromised, because the overall quality of the system is lens * sensor. And the lens on the Sony is dim...

Moto G: at least pretty good match for Fuze etc

My beloved NOS Rockboxed cherry-red control Fuze just died.

I've got a Clip stashed somewhere, but my new Moto G (the 4G model with a micro sd slot hidden behind the back cover) was handy. So I...

Cheap **recording** options (voice, nusing external mic)

As for C... how good is good? And what IEMs/headphones will you be using and at what volume? Probably around 12 hours for most people I'd guess(timate). Which will get less as the machine gets used,...

Sorry - my brain didn't quite register what you are doing; I thought you meant you were climbing around stuff while running - not going waaaaay up.

At the risk of being Captain Obvious here, have you considered combining:

1. Running the IEM wires *under* your shirt with the player on your waist band

2. Using a cable clip at the collar

If you want fast and cheap, then another benefit of the 200 series is that they are designed to be easy to open up and work on - the opposite of Apple's policies. So fitting an SSD for fast boots and...

I owned a Cowon J3, arguably the best player Cowon ever made, and I sold it because it really didn't sound better than a Clip or Fuze. With Rockbox you'll have all the EQ you need. The most practical...
