So nice to see bugs having been looked into, and SanDisk not having abandoned the original Clip! Although I can’t but be disappointed that folder view from the Clip+ didn’t back its way into the original Clip (my Clip having been working fine before, and so the bug fixes with the current firmware upgrade not really adding to my enjoyment of my Clip) …
And so nice to read that people are finding that although not commented upon by SanDisk (perhaps because there had been so much commentary before …), there in fact has been a pitch fix! Thanks, SanDisk (and feel free to add folder view, now …).
I don’t understand why Sandisk didn’t list these big improvements. The pitch improvement (it’s not a fix really) alone is worth the upgrade. I don’t think they can really get the pitch dead on with the chip set they use, the battery size used and keep the play time per charge in the 10+ hr. range. Part of the blame is USB works off a multiple of 48kHz but the CD format uses a 44.1kHz sampling rate. You’ve got to have a really fast clock to reduce the pitch error but that costs power.
