My 8GB+32GB Fuze’s battery has just given up the ghost so I’m on the look out for a replacement player and I’m considering the Clip Zip. I mainly use my player powered at home and in the car (shame the Fuze refreshes media every time I connect it now or could still use it).
I know I’ll lose the docking with a Clip Zip, but I’ve heard that turning volume to zero will give you a near-line-out experience from the headphone jack. Is this so? I can just power it via USB I guess.
Is the Clip Zip restricted to 1000 song playlists like the Fuze? My Fuze has 1000 song limit for M3Us and PLAs (despite what some people on here state about unlimited M3U lists). I use Playlists as a way of using multiple/combined genres so quite a few lists hit above the 1000 mark.
At the end of the day I just want something I can plug in to the car or home stereo, pick a playlist and hit random play (not shuffle like Rockbox).
