Having stuck with Minidisc players for ages, I finally took the plunge and got a Clip+ last Christmas, and am very pleased with it, particularly the ease with which I can access the basic controls while it’s hidden under my overalls.
The one thing it won’t do which my Minidisc players could do is playback at faster-than-normal speed but without the “chipmunk” effect. (Very handy if I have a lot of Podcasts to listen to and not much time). I see that Rockbox is able to do this, but it appears to do loads of other things that I don’t need.
Can someone tell me whether Rockbox still allows easy basic operation, as I don’t want to complicate things too much with complex menus just to get fast playback. Also, if I install Rockbox and don’t like it, how easy is it to revert back to the Sansa firmware? If you use Rockbox, what other features of it do you find particularly useful?
