  1. Hi All, Hope someone can help with this. My RH1 has always charged quite happily but recently I've noticed that I'll plug it into the computer, it will start charging, then after a random period of time it will stop charging. If I flip open the battery cover to allow the battery to pop out slightly it will start charging again, but then may stop again, or if I'm lucky complete a full charge. Also on the occasions it is charging with the cover closed if I apply some pressure to the closed battery cover it will stop charging. It doesn't matter how much charge the battery is holding, it always displays this intermittent fault. USB is fine as it works every time I plug it in without the battery (I've gently wiggled the usb cable to just confirm it's not a weak connection) so I'm thinking that something has come loose somewhere and proper contact isn't being made with the battery? Any ideas? I've got two different LIP-4WM batteries and it does the same thing with both. Thanks in advance, George
  2. I did a comparison between 132 and 256 and to be honest I couldn't tell the difference. I'm using a pair of Westone UM1, a decent headphone and about the max price I was willing to pay. I know I could play a lot more and maybe distinguish the advantages of 256, but I'm happy with 132 I think. Plus I'm over 40 now so my hearing isn't going to be as good as it used to be! Thanks again for your advice sfbp, it's been invaluable.
  3. If I click on the CD importing format in SS it has: ATRAC Advanced Lossless as the format Recording Quality: High Bit Rate for the tracks transferred to device: 132kbps I'm not sure where I set the rate for the rip, all I can see is the recording quality option of High or Normal. Am I looking in the right place?
  4. Hi All, I've tried searching but become very confused, so please forgive my lack of knowledge; I'm trying to learn fast! I have recently been lucky enough to be given an RH1, along with a few 1gb Hi-MD discs and some standard 74 minute ones. All my music is stored in FLAC format at the moment on my PC. My plan was to mount the FLAC tracks using Daemon Tools and then rip them to Sonic Stage, and then onto my RH1. My question is, what settings should I rip at and then transfer at? This is where I get all confused between ATRAC, ATRAC3, lossless, LP2, LP4 and all the associated bitrates. My goal is to find a happy medium between sound quality and storage size. I have transfered the FLAC files to SS using ATRAC lossless and then onto my RH1 at 132kbps. I think this is LP2? From my limited knowledge this would seem ok - it sounds pretty good anyway. Any help is most welcome!
