Questions on the Fuze+

Hey guys, Smiley Very Happy

It's been quite a long time since I last logged into this website.I used to have a Fuze and it broke like 4 months back I guess and since then I was waiting for a SanDisk product cause 1)I have a microSD so I quite needed a player with good microSD support.2)I pretty much like sansa products.Anyway first of all THANK YOU SanDisk for the new Fuze+.From what I heard it is one heck of a device!With all the new features and the bigger screen!Really good work!

 

I am pretty much gonna purchase it so before that I need some questions answered.

 

1)I have a Griffin Power Duo charger for sansa.I used it with my earlier Fuze.Since I found out that the new Fuze+ has a mini USB rather than a proprietary cable which was on the earlier fuze.Will I be able to charge the Fuze+ using the Wall Charger and the Car charger in the Griffin Power Duo pack?

2)Can someone tell me the external Dimensions of the player?Cause I just cant seem to find it.

3)Does the new Fuze+ have all the features that were present on the Fuze?If not what will be missing in it?

4)Is there any modifications to the Sound Chip on the Fuze+,if so will the Audio quality be better than the previous Fuze?

5)I am aware of the fact that you can Pause Live Radio. Which is extremely useful!But for how much time?And are you able to rewind the radio?

So Yeah I guess that's about it Smiley Very Happy Sorry for the list of questions.

And btw the new SanDisk forums looks great!Much more neat than the previous!

 

Thanks,

SR.

Re: Questions on the Fuze+

Since the device was just released yesterday and no one has it in their hands yet (except for a couple of 'reviewers'), these questions cannot be answered yet.

 

Except for #5: The play/pause will work the same way it does on all Sansa player in regards to the FM radio. It's basically a 'mute' button. It does not stop the broadcast and then re-start it at the same position like a DVR.

 

Here's an idea . . . why don't you order one? Then you can tell us all the answers. It would be your way of 'giving back' to the community. :smileytongue:

  1. The Fuze+ uses a micro USB connector. It will not be compatible with any previous accessories that have the 30 pin connector.
  2. The external dimensions are approximently 3.82” x 2.03” x 0.43”
  3. The Fuze+ will have a similar feature set as the Fuze had. There will be some new things like interface and no SMC required.
  4. The Fuze+ has audio quality similar to the Fuze
  5. Tapeworm is correct the pause function for radio is actually like a mute

Re: Questions on the Fuze+

 

1.OH that's sad Smiley Sad anyway but the Griffin power dock and Car charger have a USB port,so cant you use the cable that comes with the new Fuze+ to plug into the charger from the side of the USB connection and plug the fuze from the microUSB side and plug into the wall and just let it charge?

2)Thanks Smiley Happy which mean the thickness is pretty much similar to the previous Fuze?

3)Thanks again.No SMC required is a great improvement!

4)I'll be cool with that Smiley Happy

5)Really?I though that thing had Live Pause!Oh Who cares you still got radio Smiley Very Happy

 

and sorry for all the questions.And Thanks for your helpful replies!

TC,SR

  1. If the power dock and car charger have a USB cable then you should be able to use the cable that comes with the Fuze+ and plug into the USB port no problem
  2. Yes but slightly thicker

Re: Questions on the Fuze+

"The external dimensions are approximatively 2.5" x 1.5" x 1/4" "

 

The Fuze dimensions are listed as 3.1 x 1.9 x 0.3 inches, so the Fuze+ is smaller than the Fuze in all three dimensions? The Fuze is lasted as being 2.1 ounces. Is the Fuze+ lighter or heavier than this?

The Fuze+ certainly looks larger than the original Fuze in the promo videos, especially when seen in someone's hand. It also has a larger screen, so I doubt it can be smaller.

Those do not seem correct. I found this in a review

 

"As far as size goes, the Fuze+ measures 2 inches wide, 3.75 inches tall, and around a third of an inch thick--"

 Similar in general, or similar as in similar AMS DAC/amp as the Fuze?
