Nike_T is probably right!
According to sound quality my as_ … this is a farce how can the i7 be fifth from the bottom when is has the same chip set and similar fw as the d2. Why are the sony’s so far apart, basically the same player. Clix at the top and zen not far away … don’t think so …

having the same chipset doesnt mean the sound quality is the same. build quality of the product, arrangement of the resistors, chips, and whatnot all affect it.

also, its called a "rough estimate", it may be pretty rough, but whos telling you to use it as a reference sq picture?

It's just the opinion of some editors of some random mp3 review site. It's not the holy grail. Take it with a cube of salt.

updated ranking of generationmp3!




conditions of test:
"Nous tenons à préciser que, quand nous avons réalisé ce classement, nous avions les 15 modèles de baladeur en notre possession et que nous n’avons pas fait ça avec les casques d’origine (heureusement !) mais avec des q-jays, UM1, UM2 avec embouts moulés Earsonics, EM3 Pro Ersonics et Sennheiser PCX-450. Sachez également qu’un classement sur la qualité audio avec de vraies mesures et plus de baladeurs, sera fait lors du prochain meeting GMP3 fin mai…"

my translation (sorry, I'm not bilingual lol)
We want to precise that when we made this ranking, we had the 15 mp3 players in our possession and we didn't test them with the headphones of origin (fortunately!) but with q-jays, UM1, UM2 with Earsonics custom earmold, EM3 Pro Earsonics and Sennheiser PCX-450. You also have to know that an audio quality ranking with real measurement and more mp3-players will be made during the next GMP3 meeting in may

bonus: If you want to see the gmp3 team working on the test:
http://mp3.generationmp3.com/2008/04...io/#more-10642

edit: and they added that for all mp3-players in the green zone, the sound difference is minimal.

edit2: you probably wonder why the top of the ranking has changed.
Actually they noticed something they did not notice last time:
At volume 0 on the Iriver Clix 2 there is a minimal background noise which is not on the Sony or Samsung.
According to them, the output of P2 and T10 is perfect.

What I find sorely missing is the Sansa Clip, which is touted to be one of the best sounding DAPs ever marketed. I just purchased one and I can attest to this.

P.S Wow, the E100 is at rock bottom. iRiver, you should be ashamed of yourselves!

They didn't have the Sansa Clip at that moment so it is hard to judge it and to remain credible at the same time lol

I always thought my T10 sounded great- it's hard to say whether the P3 sounds better.
