Well I've had it sort of. Everything these days is too complex. My sansa M250 wont handle vbr mp3 well -stutering / volume issues. I really like this player so im keeping it.

I did some abx tests with recent and lame 3.90. CBR 192 is the minimum acceptable and 224 yields very decent quality on par with V2 ~ V0..
The old encoders (before presets) are very fast too. I settled for -h -b 224

I don't want to keep up with the latest and greatest anymore. VBR , joint stereo .. no more. Just an old version of EAC and lame because it just works.

Apologies for being a bit off-topic, but I'm finding it amusing that you-all "really like" these players and think that they are "great little players", when they do not play VBR files, fail to index every 100th file, and shut off if the volume is too high.

The word I'd use to describe such a player would be more like "broken".

Don't lump Sandisk firmware problems in with Rockbox firmware problems.

Creature of habit.
