Quoted from tacshose:

Where do you guys get the audio? Is there a giant pinside Dropbox pm link I’m missing? Sadly I have TONS but all mp3 from ripping to an Elan home system.

I ripped many thousands of CDs from my collection into FLACs, 7 CDs at a time.

We'd need at least a gig or three of DB space, if you can set it up

Quoted from vid1900:

Let us know if the one you get is also brand new in a **referb** box.

Mine sure appeared to be... not a scratch on it, no refurb sticker, etc.

Amazon has the HIFIMAN MegaMini High-Res Music Player for $54 right now (it was $250 not that long ago).

It only takes a single microSD card, but hey, it's not $500, it's made of metal, and audiophiles on Head-Fi seem to love it.

So if you wanted to dip you toes into audiophile playback without a big investment, this might be your man (and you can get rid of all those Amazon gift cards you got for Xmas).

Darn, just saw this and it's already back to 99. That would have been perfect.

Kinda forgot about this thread. But my "refurb"
showed up looking brand spanking new as well. Not a scratch, ding, or anything. Works perfectly. Thanks again Vid.
Now if someone could explain how I can add new albums to this without duplicating every single track that would be great.

Assuming you are on Windows:

1. Put the card into the computer, view contents in a single window.

2. Open a second window with your computer's music files.

3. Drop ONLY the new music folders into the root directory of the card.

On my cards, I have band names A-L on card #1 and M-Z on card #2

So if I was adding a new artist lets say Wiz Khalifa, I would drag the folder onto the #2 card, cuz it starts with a "W"

When you put the card(s) back in , the player will sniff out all the new music in the background.

You are a semi genius , I still have my ipod and still use it . With tons of CD's and still buying them I need a new player so I can survive after it finally dies. Just ordered.

If you were adding an additional albums at a latter date by Wiz Khalifa, you would just drop the new albums into the Wiz Khalifa folder; not the card's root.

That way all the Wiz albums would be in a single artist's folder.

The problem is when you have an artist that is in two bands.

Do you put "Hooker 'n Heat" in the John Lee Hooker folder or the Canned Heat folder? Or both because storage is so cheap now?

Yeah this is a problem with pretty much every rap album I own. It's cool that they gave a monetary shout out to all contributing artists but wtf. Every rap record I own splintered all over the place.

I was re-arranging some of my music the other day and for examples like the above I'd typically put it in a "Canned Heat - John Lee Hooker" folder. In the metadata tag for each track I'd then put the actual artist(s) on the track in the "artist(s)" field and in the "album artist(s)" field I'd put "Canned Heat - John Lee Hooker". That organizes it the way I want at both a folder level as well as it seems to organize it better (for me) when adding it to the library of whatever software I'm playing it with.

Obviously the best is whatever works for you

That makes sense.

I just put "Black Crowes & Jimmy Page - Live at the Greek" in it's own folder, rather than the Crowes folder where it normally lives.

#367 3 months ago

When I first started playin guitar in 93 all I played to was John Lee Hooker's Travelin.
Bout to check out John and Canned Heat...excited for this.

#368 3 months ago

Already went back to Travelin

I couldn't figure out how to file my Donny Osmond sings the hits of Frank Zappa , so I compromised and just filed under captain beefheart .

LOL that reminded me of the mid 80s Nightline interview with Zappa, Osmond and a lady from the PMRC where basically they both agreed the PMRC proposals were dumb.

Lol... that is awesome. My dad had a copy of Troutmask Replica on vinyl, and i could never get "A squid eating dough in a polyethylene bag is fast and bulbous. Got me?" out of my head....

Here's another DAP on sale, $100 and pretty good numbers. I'd probably jump on it if I hadn't snatched that XDP deal.

New Egg just matched the $62, and probably no tax for most of you from them:

Darn, Vid! Don't really need it but ordered one anyway. It takes me a while to load up smaller cards than this because there are so few records on which I like all the songs. So I cherry-pick songs from numerous CDs from the same group and store them in a folder so when I select that group I hear continuous play of nothing but what I consider as their best stuff. Lots of classic rock stuff plus jazz-rock by groups such as Spyro Gyra and Fattburger and The Rippingtons (plus my own instrumental recordings).

You can create a playlist with just the songs you like, without moving the songs from their folders.

You might have "driving music", "funkyass shlt", "Showtunes", "Thrash" and "Prog Jazz"

Press the 3 little dots next to a song title, and "add to playlist"

Look at page 55 if you want a step by step:

I am still watching for another price drop

#382 51 days ago

I have been listening to this thing for a few weeks or more. Now I have two 400 gig cards and they are full.

The device is amazing. I need some better headphones but I just use and1 triple can in ears.

Again, Amazing. If you like your sound, you will not regret this purchase.

One song in the cans made the whole purchase come together quickly.

This one, but there are many others. Many.

Physical, by the revolting cocks.

Everything sounds amazing.
