Default Clip+ time?

So i've had mine sansa clip+ for two weeks now and i've got used to it. It's a great player it has great sound quality and i use it with Fiio e5 + Hifi man Re2 or Koss porta pro. The clip itself is great then mountain-biking thoe it ain't top notch quality. Since i go to music school for ten years already i can't wear a wrist watch while at it because it's not comfortable to play with, still i always have the cliip+ with me but i actually have to got to settings-> system settings -> date and time to view it . Is were a shorter way of doing that? Or will i have to wait for rockbox?

Unfortunately no, they only implemented the clock for DRM-crippled subscription music, not for user convenience. People have been wanting a real clock since the old Clip, but Sandisk never gave us one. With Rockbox on my v1 Clip I have a real clock now... I hope Rockbox for the Clip+ isn't too far off.

By the way, are you sure you don't make the sound of the Clip actually worse by using the FiiO amp? I very much doubt it improves the RE2 in any way (can't say about the Portapro, but probably it makes them louder).

The clock is also used for naming recorded files (voice/FM Radio). Also the naming of the files seems a little inconvenient for organization purposes b/c the "date" on the file name is by Month/Day/Year, instead of Year/Month/Day (which is then followed by the time the recording started in 24/Military time). For example "021510-232813.wav"

Yes, porta pros is a bit too much for clip+ to handle alone (60ohm what were they thinking ~25 years ago? ). What i like about fiio e5 is that it makes RE2 sound a bit warmer , other than that i haven't noticed any change in SQ.
P.S. I wish clip+ had a clip like fiio e5 does, it seems a lot more durable...
