In my opinion, it’s not a problem with EU regulations but with BAD implementation by SanDisk!
What doesn’t work for me with firmware V02.03.31 in EU configuration:
bad Signal-Noise-Ratio with external amplifiers
volume level of stereo equipment has to be maximum to get household noise level (switching to another source blows off my flat :manmad:)
the 600 Watts active speakers I’m going to use for my birthday party can’t fill the barbecue area because of low input from the FUZE
the 30 Ohm passive speakers I use for falling asleep and wakeup just whisper (oversleeping included :manmad:)
Why not just adding a menuitem to switch the headphone output between “Headphones” (EU-limited level), Line (2V line level) and “Speakers” (maximum level)? And if SanDisks spends a alarm clock with a own playlist to the FUZE firmware, I’d be happy to use the FUZE with passive Speakers instead of an extra alarm clock!
