audiophiles best kept secret!

flinxx, Ebay
6 March 2012
  • Summary: This player has features only found in players costing $500 plus. They are older so you will only find them used. So, expect to replace the battery if you get one. I got mine becuase it has optical outputs. I can connect the player to an external DAC/Amp and then I have a portable audiophile player. I plan on changing out the battery from a 1700mah battery to a 2200mah battery and and later on change the hard drive to a 240gb hdd.

Portable Audiophile Player

logical_alternatives, Ebay
20 February 2009
  • Summary: The only portable audiophile player left with true optical out. It's an outdated player but perfect for DIY work - upgrade hard drive to over 200MB and flash drive. Can be fixed to last for a long time. Match it with an iBasso D10 DAC/AMP and you will be in for a sonic treat.

iHP-140 Strengths and Weaknesses

djlarrylovews, Ebay
13 March 2008
  • Summary: Love the optical INPUT AND OUTPUT - Try that with any other player, including the Creative Nomad Jukebox 3 - UNIQUE! :) Great Sound Quality! Great Recording (formats supported, quality with the mic / line-in)! Great FM tuner performance (pulled in Milwaukee FM at school 56 miles away clearly!, avoiding overload from local campus station, even when camped on top of 5000 W transmitter!

Great Unit

bluesb4midnight, Ebay
1 February 2007
  • Summary: Outstanding unit. The truth of the matter is this unit is way better than the iPod. The Apple marketing machine overwhelmed the product and it couldn't keep up sales wise. As the other reviewer said, you get built in FM radio, external microphone, and extras that Apple would never think of giving you with their product, namely a remote and a leather case. Google a leather case for an iPod. $39.95!!!

Great sound quality, FM, recording, Rockbox firmware!

jimmyfergus, Ebay
28 June 2006
  • Summary: No longer current model, but a superb machine nonetheless and often a bargain. Blows iPods out of the water on sound quality, and includes an FM radio, recording ability, and optical in/out. The stock firmware is a bit poor, but with the (easy) installation of Rockbox firmware (rockbox.org), it's a whole new machine. iPod interface (clickwheel), is still better, but Rockbox is very good, and much fuller featured.

Un appareil très lourd

One_up, Ciao
10 July 2006
  • Summary: Après plusieurs comparatifs lus dans la presse je me décide à acheter le fameux i-river IHP 140. J'avais déjà entendu parlé favorablement de cette société sud coréene pour des lecteurs MP3 plus classique à base de carte memoire, je me suis donc laissé tenté par leur lecteur à base de disque dur.
  • Pros: Capacité de stockage , compatibilité multiformat
  • Cons: Poids, format de l'appareil

Un bijou qui aurait dû faire plus parler de lui !

hedek, Ciao
11 June 2006
  • Summary: J'ai acheté ce balladeur MP3 il y a 2 ans. A l'époque, ses 40 gigas, son prix ainsi que ses notes excellentes (souvent même au dessus du déjà célèbre IPod)dans divers magazines informatique m'ont convaincu. Après cette brève introduction, passons aux choses sérieuses : les caractéristiques de la bête : DESIGN : Avec sa coque noire, son large écran, il m'a tout de suite plu. Sobre et élégant, il reste cependant encombrant...
  • Pros: prix, fonctionnalités, capacité, élégance
  • Cons: poids, écran rayable, connecteurs peu endurants, menus peu clairs au début

bien mieux qu'un ipod

ko-vallef, Ciao
18 June 2005
  • Summary: Ca fait maintenant 10 mois que je me suis acheté ce petit bijoux et j'en suis super content. Je l'ai choisi parce qu'il lisait le format ogg, bien meilleur que le mp3. Les 40 gigas du disque dur tiennent dans une poche, ou on peut le mettre dans le fond d'un sac et l'utiliser avec la télécommande. L'autonomie est excellente (je pense qu'il tiens les 16 heures promise en lecture mp3), le son est impeccable.
  • Pros: capacité de stockage, autonomie, ogg vorbis
  • Cons: lecture impossible et autonomie en mode disque dur

EL LIMITE DE LOS MP3

Ciao
14 April 2005
  • Excerpt: Buenas, os voy a hablar d este estupendo reproductor de mp3, yo diria que aquí está el limite, hasta donde se va a alcanzar por lo menos en los proximos tres o cuatro años en cuanto a la evolucion de los mp3. los reproductores iRiver iHP son los pioneros dentro de su marca en utilizar un disco duro dentro de un reproductor de mp3, y la verdad que viendo los graficos de la empresa y las ventas de estos productos se demuestra que están teniendo una venta mayor de la...
  • Pros: calidad y tamaño disco
  • Cons: El peso para llevarlo
