Re: Pitch bug on Clip+?

Couldn't that be calculated on paper? 

 

Regardless, there still is the trade-off:  adjust the pitch tighter with a small battery hit; or keep the pitch as is with the longer battery life.  Note that the pitch target was improved with the Clip+ from the Clip.

 

Personally, I think that an estimated 14-1/2 hour battery life for something this small is pretty bloody amazing and allows for, essentially, a full day of play.  And the loss of 1/2 an hour is not major.  But it could be a marketing issue, perhaps, and I don't know what the majority of users would feel.

Re: Pitch bug on Clip+?

Find two people that would measure exactly 15h 00' 00" battery life. Among various other factors, even ambient temperature and humidity can influence its performance. I am pretty much sure that battery issue is just an excuse for some other problem which they are not willing to share.

I came back to say this.  There should be no trade-off.  I presently have a player that is tiny, plays on-pitch and has a battery life of 60 hrs.  In a way, I'm glad that Sandisk had this issue or I wouldn't have found my new perfect player.

 

If another manufacturer can figure a way to have superb battery life and play on pitch in a very small form factor, there really isn't any excuse for Sandisk not to do the same.

Sony S545 ? Are you kidding, that thing is at least 2-3 times bigger then Sansa Clip+, not to mention the price. Buy a player the size of a refrigerator and batteries will last your whole life Smiley Happy Anyway I would never buy anything from such a bloodsucking company like Sony.

Hmmm... I never realized that I was your personal assistant. Smiley Very Happy

 

My hints should be obvious; do a little searching around.  There aren't too many players with 60 hrs. of battery life.

 With the size of a clip+ ? I don't even think it is possible.

Re: Pitch bug on Clip+?

Last hint; and the end of discussion for me.  Take a little initiative and do a bit of research yourself if a media player with 60 hrs of battery life is of interest (that plays on-pitch).
