I am a Rave MP3 man now!

Rave-MP SPORT: AMP256 – Flash based digital audio player 256MB, hi speed USB for fast music transfers

Just unpacked my new Rave Amp256 MP3 player, and I am no longer an RCA Lyra guy - I am a total Rave guy.

I played with the thing for, like, 10 minutes, and I'm already hooked!
    features I love
  • Tons of info on the backlit screen
  • Tunes FM (though not too well, it seems)
  • records FM and voice
  • Plays by artist, album, genre
  • has the standard EQ presets as well as a 5-band
  • resumes from last position in track; I can't emphasize this enough. Even if it didn't have all the other stuff, this one thing would sell me. "You had me from 'Resume From Current Position'!"


By selling my soul and prostituting my ideals (i.e. buying from Walmart.com) I got it for less than my Lyra cost. Less than $50, in fact!. Thanks to Gizmodo and their pointer to CHAITGEAR MP3 Player "Deals of the Week” @ CHAITGEAR for turning me on to this - with persistence, (and a lovely, understanding, and supportive wife) I was able to get one while it was in stock.

This thingy rocks! Who needs an iPod?

Did you ever get the resume to work?

Nope, resume is apparently a non-working bit in the current firmware. One of the Customer Service folks told me that there shold be a firmware upgrade after the new year - I'll post here when I get it....
