Re: suggestions to usage of 8MB?

Just curious,

What are the exact advantages of the larger buffer? Is it just for
conserving batteries or does the skip protection improve significantly? Does
the AJB ever skip at all?

I'm about to get an AJBR20, but so far only used a CD-MP3 player, a
Soulplayer DMP-01, which really skips a lot in my car velcro'ed to my dash
board. It has 2 MB of buffer memory, but recovering from a disc skip
(actually "seek time") takes a few seconds each skip, so if it skips, it
skips good. It this also true for the AJB, or does it just have a "healthy"
seek time of a dozen or so milliseconds?

| Hello,
| By now, the additinal RAM of a 8 MB AJB is used for MP3 buffering. What
| else do you think should it be used for?
| I think only few things should be changed.
| My suggestion (things mentioned by Daniel already..):
| - 1000 files per dir instead of 400
| - 20000 files per Playlist instead of 10000
| Anything else?
| Bye, Uwe.
