Replacement for Sandisk Clip+

My Clip+ has died. Are there any players that are similiar in function and price. I had it with Rockbox and the main features I liked with that was the bookmarks.

A while back I heard good things about the FiiO X1, but don't know what is the scenario as of 2018.

I got fed up of carrying two devices around and am quite happy with my phone now :)

I recently went through the same thing, except my Clip+'s battery was dying. I replaced it (non-OEM since I couldn't source one) but still wasn't happy. I had a look amongst the current crop of DAPs to find something similar but couldn't. The current models seem to fit into two categories - cheap & cheerful or "Hi-Fi"/Hi-Res players (and lots of $$$). However, I found that Rockbox can be put onto the Xduoo X3 and am happy with my choice. It's probably 3 times the Clip+'s size so it's not as pocketable but it seems to one of the few newer players around that can run Rockbox and it doesn't cost a kidney either. If you do follow the same path, be aware that (a) there's a V2 of this player that doesn't support Rockbox and (b) the stock firmware has a flaw that plays some compressed files fractionally too slow.

Edited: grammar.

The statement about the V2 is wrong! Only the housing is different, the internals are the same.

Not sure - there's a X3II which I believe is not Rockbox-able, though I may be wrong. It has such things as Bluetooth, which the original does not, so it can't be the same internals. Maybe we're not talking about the same thing?

Thanks for the replies. I think I will take a look at the Xduoo X3

I had a clip+ too but too bad it died.
This time I didn't want to pay the premium for a brand-new device from 2009 or so, so I decided to go with Chinese player and here I got the Shanling M0. Although it's made by another "audiophile" company, this time I don't feel like being robbed for snake oil.

It has 2Vrms voltage output, and near-zero output impedance perfect for any loads.
And yes they have 2-way Bluetooth functionality with AAC!

The price I paid was around $99 which was equal to a refurbed Clip+ shipped to Thailand.

No Rockbox anyway :(
