Mp3 players..

Recommended Posts

What about WMA?

I've been experimenting with converting 160-192kbps MP3 to WMA @ 128kps and the sound quality is retained very well! (not that my ears -after all the 26 years of 'very' loud rock 'n roll -would notice) I have an MP3 player with only 128MB (I need to get a 256 SD card to expand it to 384MB) and I can usually fit 18-22 songs on it, (depending on length0 but I change them out often, it's pretty easy. It's great for active sports like basketball at very compact!

Mr. Pink Floyd, you really need a very good sound card and speakers to really notice the difference. If you are really interested in quality on a small place, do this test. Rip a song from one of your CDs to uncompressed WAV, then encode to mp3, wma and ogg, all at the same bitrate, then compare. I found that ogg sounds a bit better than the other two.

I have an mpio hd 200 or something like that. It's good, it has an easy touch pad it holds like 3000 songs and it has an fm radio plus it cost about the same as the mini ipod. The only problem, it took me a long time 2 figure how 2 put songs on it.

I've got a Rio Cali - it's 128MB with an SD expansion slot so theoretically I could get whatever the biggest available card is (1GB, 2GB?) for expanded storage. I got it for Christmas '03 - knowing what I do now it was a classic case of if I had waited a year, I could've gotten much more bang for the buck - but I like it. I wear it every morning when I walk (you gotta exercise, you know) and I love it. The 128MB holds about 25-30 songs depending on file size. I usually listen to the playlist twice through or put it on random for a couple of days. Changing out the tunes is very simple and since I'm on the computer regularly it's not really a hassle either. Although I will probably break down and buy a 1GB card for it at some point. It is well made - has an armband for exercising and has held up to being dropped a few times. One draw back - it takes a single AAA battery which are usually only good for about 3-4 hours or so of playback.
