Rockbox Development > New Ports

Shanling Q1

<< < (6/7) > >>

Hey guys! I rockboxed my Q1 yesterday and I must say that I was blown away by how great the result sounds. I find the sound improvement of RB over vanilla FW pretty substantial. Is there an explanation why that might be? Back when I was angry with iBasso players' sound signature changing with every FW release, I had a theory that those Chinese manufacturers are applying some kind of DSP to make everything sound more "audiophile" and only messing things up with it. What is correct explanation however? Or am I just plain wrong in my perception?

Also, I'm sending a small donation, this is really some great work.

Sorry abut OT, but why this thread was moved to this forum? Topics for other players remain in the "new ports" and this goes to "general"...

Any idea if playing opus files would consume more battery than other formats like ogg or mp3?

Hi !
Oh ! What a surprise ! I used to use Rockbox something like... 15 years back ? More ? Not sure. I used to check every now & then and thought it was dead.
I have no idea why I checked today and... It's incredible, I do have a Q1 and a port has just arrived :-)

I will definitely give it a try if that's safe enough ;-)
The official firmware is really a pain to navigate (IMHO).

Cheers ! And thanks for keeping it alive ;)

No guarantees in life, but Q1 has a built-in recovery USB-mode that you cannot break by installing Rockbox. It should be very safe to install.

I have been using it since it became available and have not seen any problems.
