I like that "everything on one page" very much. The UIs of the stereo bandwidth and
Bassboost are both VERY well done. Not only numbers and text but intuitive, perfect
graphics. Thatīs the way to go! I prefer more information on the screen more than big

The new audio settimgs really are the "next big thing" after flashing and voice fonts.
Enhanced bassboost and stereo bandwidth give you a lot more sound tweaking
potential than the usual sound settings alone. I always wanted sound enhancement like
Creative SRS-effects on Windows Media Player on the JBR. The AUDIO_3587 is really
impressive and comes quite close to that.
I like the JBR more and more after having it for more than 2 years now. Open source
software powerd devices have a much longer lifecycle and do really not get outdated as
fast as other devices where you have to buy new hardware to get new functionality.

Keep on the good work! Maybe there are some more audio-secrets to discover. I am
not so much interested in game stuff and picture viewer but in the basic functionality,
playing audio the best possible way.
