Best/Simplest Uprgrades for iRiver IHP-140

<< < (2/2)

Jeff:
It's definitely one of the best of the 'older' generation of players to mod.  The internal DAC on the iHP Series is really good, so sound quality has always been there. 
I've been out of the game for a while, but in terms of upgrading storage, i'd probably still go with a CF card.  My iHP-120 is still rocking it's 30gb card from 2008 with no signs of slowing down. Couple the increased storage with a nice portable headphone amp and you're on cloud 9!

What do you think, how can I help you in an efficient way, that might also be helpful for others in the future? I mean, we could create a documentation in the process of you're player upgrade?

I haven't done anything to start this project other than a little bit of research and window shopping. If you are interested in writing a tutorial, that would be amazing! I would be starting from the very beginning.

This is where I'm stuck - I'm not sure which adapters to trust. Some older posts on here used a uSD to 1.8" IDE adapter, but it seems like no one makes this anymore. I have been looking at uSD to 2.5" IDE adapters on AlieExpress but it's not always clear what exact chipset is being used. It seems like the only cheap SD to IDE options use either the FC1306, FC1307 or FC1309 chipsets. From what I can tell the FC1307 or FC1306 are only designed for up to 128GB, although I have heard of people running higher than that. I've read that people have had trouble with the iFlash adapters, not to mention they're quite a bit more expensive.

A couple of threads dealing with this at misticriver.  We're trying to resurrect some of the old info.  Admin/Mods, if i'm out of line posting the links, please let me know.
