Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

Some songs sound lifeless on my e280r

When I load some of my cds (CCR, Led Zeppelin, ...) onto my e280r they sound lifeless (as though they are missing a channel or lower volume level). Is there a way to get consistant volume levels and excellent music quality from cds when converting them to mp3s and putting them on my e280r?

There are many settings in Windows Media Player for Ripping music. Make sure yours are set to WMA with 192kbps or higher..

Windows Media Player>Tools>Options>Rip Music (Copy CD).

Best of Luck.

I just switched to an HD receiver. The sound on the HD Channels is lower than the sound on the regular channels. How can I fix this? Dishnetwork has aready checked their end.

Some Sanyo TV's have a feature called Dynamic volume, this feature can be enabled by just pressing the dynamic volume button on the factory remote. We happen to offer a similar feature called volume leveling on our VIP 722k, 612, and 222k receivers. This is a recently released feature that will keep the volume even, during commercials or when changing channels. To access this press menu 6-1-6 and select enable under volume leveling.

I have had a rather disoncerting lw level buzzing

I had the same after about 15 months. It seems to happen when charging the iPOD. I took it back to John Lewis, it was returned to B&W and came back repaired 8 working days later. I was very pleased with the service. As an added bonus B&W restarted the 2 yr guarantee.

Stereo switches off at volume level 15 even though

it switches off to protect it from damage due to very strong sound level input if the level is on suitable range it will work fine.

Bose SA2 distortion

As the distortion is on both channels it must be something to do with something that is common to both!
My guess is an IC. Check to see if it uses an IC for the main amplification. They are big with loads of pins coming out of them. Sometimes marked STK and then a number. If you find one it will have gone! Replace it with the exact part.

DP-01FX/CD sound quality of CDs

Nothing really specific other than to make sure you are recording as close to 0 db as possible without going over. Your master fader also needs to be set at 0db or above as this effects the volume when mastering.

Commercial CDs use a lot of compression to attain volume levels which aren't attainable without it. You should however be able to reproduce onto CD the volume levels you are hearing on your Tascam without resorting to compression.

To troubleshoot, you might want to try exporting your master tracks as wav files onto your computer via usb and then listening to them there. If the volume is low there you aren't creating master tracks with good volume (see above: master fader level), if the tracks sound good as wavs on your PC, then burn them onto a cd from there. If that CD has proper volume then you may have some problem with your Tascam CD burner although I've never seen a situation where a burner actually caused low volume like this.

Best of luck.

Gem Sound XP-350 both channels failed

Speaker fuses are generally fast-blow styles 250 volt glass
If an amp shuts down, with speakers connected, it sounds like one of the power supply lines does NOT like what it's "seeing" . Probably output transistors bad ( or module)

Take it to a tech.

Sci Atlanta 8300 DVR HD sound in HD channels soft - analog channels OK

Experience has shown that with this relatively new mode of transmission, audio levels can be quite dynamic. If your set provides it, you may try turning on "Audio Compress" or whatever the name might be. Could also be called Dynamic audio also or some such. Reason for all the hubbub is that along with HD, mixing engineers are also providing the most range for the audio dynamics as well the most video composition info in the new broadcasts...Accordianman.
