Good looking out, I almost jumped on this last time but the sale ended before I could decide. I'll just have to figure out what to use the GC on... I used to spend at least $10K a year with Newegg, now I can't even remember my login/password.

Ok...last page Vid made everything kinda crystal clear. Just go into my pc, music, ctrl+A, and send to SD card. Right? It didn't seem right, it only took 20 minutes to transfer to SD. But now I've got my FiiO updating media files and it's up to 3400 and still goin. Hope this works.
In other news, I just updated my ACDC to the latest Metallica code lol. Whoopsie.

#306 64 days ago

Because of a metalhhead Pinsider's passing I am not as excited as usual but YAY, it worked.
Stoked to have my tunes back again. Most albums there but I have 14 ACDC albums only 6 showed up. 17 Maiden albums all there. Weird.

#307 63 days ago
Quoted from Gryszzz:

Many players can't read odd audio files (like lossless .ape, or .mp2), so those files ARE on the memory stick, but don't show up in the menus.

So those you may have to first convert to FLAC or MP3, then up them to the card (remember to delete the incompatible ones from the card first)

#308 63 days ago

FiiO X1II is a great little player. It also pairs nicely with the Apple Air Buds. Those things sound pretty darn good for what they are, and are about the only pair of in-ear buds that actually stay in place, which seemed a bit hard to understand for a while. I think it has to do with out light they are, and no weight or tug of any cables.

The ctrl+A in library tip was a game changer. First time caller long time listener.

Now, if you really want to get wit the ladies:

CTRL A (highlight all the folders)
CTRL C (copy all highlighted folders)
CTRL V (paste all copied folders)

#312 62 days ago

LOL
It was more the tip about not needing MusicBee or any 3rd party app to store my library in. Just go into the file, ctrl+A, BAM done. I didn't realize it was that easy until you made that point.
Still can't find my ACDC lol.
Let's go Colts!

#313 62 days ago
Quoted from Gryszzz:

Another reason they might not show up is that the folder title has illegal characters ( or ? or /). So if one of the folders is named "AC_DC Back_in_Black" your player might not display that album.

So go to your My Music and find the missing album folder.

Look for odd characters in the title. Change the name of the folder to just "ACDC Back In Black" without any backslashes or underscores.

Next, look at the contents of the folder. Look at the file extensions and make sure they are not odd file types. So if they are "Shes got the jack.ape" or "shes got the jack.mp4" you need to use an onlne converter to change those files into normal files (turn .ape into .flac, turn .mp4 into .mp3 ......)

Once you've got your naming and extensions figured out, put the microSD card in the computer.

Open 2 file windows, one the card, the other your My Music.

In the Card window, find the ACDC folder. Inside, find the album folders that don't show up in the player - delete them.

In the My Music window, drag the renamed folders into the Card window AC/DC folder.

Put the card back in the player and let it re-sync with the new folders

#317 55 days ago

Where they heck are they putting all that space? It blows my mind that it's the exact same form factor that they had 10+ years ago and the first card I bought for my very first flip phone with camera was 128 MEGA Bytes.

#320 51 days ago

Welp, left my FiiO on the ground in front of Expo on the load out. I know this because I remember looking at it thinking "I should put that in my pocket before I forget it" and then got to talkin. That's ok. I really couldn't stand that mf anyway. Vids deal expired, now $229. Nope.
Bought an iPod classic 120gb at the pawn shop for $80. It's been 4 hours and only a third of the library through see y'all at 4 am with some Ronnie James.

For those looking for the original Pioneer XDP-100R from the first post in this thread, here for $199:

https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/pionxdp100rk/pioneer-xdp-100r-32gb-portable-hi-res-audio-player-black/1.html

or Silver

https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/pionxdp100rs/pioneer-xdp-100r-32gb-portable-hi-res-audio-player-silver/1.html

These say they are referbs from the Pioneer factory, so I would trust that compared to some 3rd party + the warranty is from Pioneer.

EDIT: A few of you who bought these this time around have said that they are brand new with screen protector film still on the units.

-

They also have it's big brother the flagship XDP-300R for $299. The difference is that the 300R has dual balanced amps inside (If you don't know that that is, just get the 100R ).

If you have an iPod and want to bring the best sound of it, be able to upload music without going through itunes and play flac audio, I would recommend giving rockbox a shot. It's a custom firmware for iPOD, can be installed and reverted to the stock firmware if you don't like it and it's free. The sound is tremendously improved, so is the ease of use.

I tried it, and decided not to buy an audiophile player, the gap with the stock ipod is amazing.

We talked about Rockbox and replacing the iPod's mechanical harddrive with SD cards earlier in the thread:

Thanks for bringing it up, I had no idea the hard drive could be replaced, it didn't hit my mind for some reasons, but I'll definitely look into it !

Back in the day, we'd put a mechanical Hitachi 200gig drive in and people would go crazy "You've got 200gigs ?????".

Now you can go asscrazy with 4 sd cards in an iPod

I jumped on a silver one this time. I almost bit on the XDP-30R last time it was on sale but ended up going down the rabbit hole and wound up with an Onkyo CR-N765 instead.

I see the Senheiser HD-600 headphones are on sale @ Amazon today for $250

That's the lowest price I think I've ever seen real ones for.

Good cheap Xmas present if you don't want another thoughtless tie from the wife.

These are THE reference headphone. Look at any headphone review, they ALL reference the HD600 in comparison.

Made in Ireland, and every replacement part is available after the 2 year warranty expires.

Very, very tempting. I don’t need another pair but I finally have good headphone amps in all the places I enjoy listening to music. Do they get down in this price range often?

Edit: noticed your comment about lowest price ever. dammit.

Quoted from emkay:

Absolutely never.

Generally $320-399

When they were the flagship, they were $499

How do these HD 600's compare with the ones on massdrop for $199 which are essentially the HD 650? It looks like those are in-stock and ready to ship now, as opposed to having to wait in the past. Thanks

I noticed the same thing last night but after reading reviews on the HD 6XX, they seemed to be compared unfavorably even though they're newer and appear to be higher in the lineup just from the name.

I ended up not buying for the time being. I've got a number of good cans, both open and closed, and have gotten into the Chi-Fi IEM world lately. I didn't need 'em and although I really like the way they sound, I think I'd get more use out of something like the Fostex T50RP.

By the way if anyone's looking for an inexpensive set of earbuds, these have been a real surprise:

https://www.gearbest.com/earbud-headphones/pp_1838201.html

$15 shipped and they pair nicely with the XDP for listening on the go.

The Massdrop ones are a hair less bright on the higher-mids.

So bands with terrible fidelity (like Led Zep or Sweet), sound better with the 6xx.

I did not know that the 6xx were in stock now, that is super bad-ass not to wait 6 months to get them.
