First impressions

Hello All,

Bought a 2Gb Clip this week for my wife. She commutes by train & wanted something to listen to on the journey. Our tastes tend mostly to classical music, along with some old person’s rock/pop!

So far I  have to say I am very impressed; for me the geeky one the drag & drop simplicity, .ogg support & and the ease of use from within linux are a great boon. My wife is not at all geeky, but spent about half a minute with the menu structure and declared it perfectly self-evident. The font on the menus is esy to read, albeit with her glasses.

The issues of digital audio players with classical music are well-documented elseh=where; suffice it to say that it all seems quite manageable with the Clip, and AFAIK virtually no players provide gapless playback, the one thing classical enthusiasts tend to bleat about!

From a (so far) happy user

Always good to hear from another Fan:smileyvery-happy:

The Clip is a great device.  If Sandisk advertised the thing, I can’t imagine how many they’d sell.

BTW, if you can stomach MP3, I’ve found some great, free classical music here:

Thanks for the link–a great source there! And, it’s not all MP3–the first selection I looked at, Bach’s Brandenburg Concerti, is available in either MP3 or FLAC format.

That’s cool, thanks for keeping me honest!

;) 

It really is a nice source for misc. selections–I found some nice classicals there, and even a poetry reading (!) by the whimsical/wry poet Ogden Nash himself.  And even the MP3 selections I looked at were at a decent rate, 192 kbps!

Thanks, again–

 Thanks PromisedPlanet

To be honest my first additions to the Clip were mp3 anyway, although .ogg is more usual for me!  So I was very intrested in yourrecommended site.

Thanks again,

Paul
