• Added Audible (.aax) support

Happy to report the length of files now for my Amazon Music dispalys correctly…

I noticed that with the latest firmware update to Clip Sport (version 1.38), the two annoying features that plagued Audible users of the Enhanced format that allowed for a single file (1: dropping the last seveal minutes; and 2: the increasing lag time to resume the further into a file playback was initiated) have been finally addressed.

Kudos to the firmware team, BTW, especially afer reading an explanation that concluded these issues were hardware design and beyond repair.

Can I assume that the most up-to-date firmware for the Clip Sport Plus has also incorporated this new functionality in its firmware?

the sport plus only supports Audible Enhanced format (AAX). I have not seen any reports of similar issues the sport and jam had.  

Thanks, this post solved my problem. Audible tech didn’t know that that only Enhanced mode was supported.
