Nice ... but I am still wondering why the biggest standard of today which is .m4a is not supported !!!

Come on guys, with Ipod and Itunes success you could at least implement a decent .m4a support as all our music libraries will soon be converted in .m4a and not in ogg or mp3 any longer .....

I doubt it, m4a isn't that widespread

I'm having problems with recording in MP3 format on my N70 - I'll post more details when I've tested more thoroughly.

Hi!...

I was testing first of all the "base" (all flat eq) sound quality comparing with the Nokia Music Player...

I really doubt that the Alon player can sound better than the Nokia Player ...

Why? .. because the non eq sound already has lower sound quality than the Nokia player ...

Here are my Sound quality comments about "Alon" player that you can notice comparing the Nokia Player ... (on Nokia N70 "Music Player")

- Less Stereo channel separation: This make a less spacing/ambient, Nokia player itīs more involving because of better channel separation
- More signal noise level: On low volume parts of the music you ear JIZZ sound (Noise) , Nokia player itīs more clean and silent
- Less Dymanic range: Differences between low volume and high volume passes of the music are more flat, less impact and attack on drums for example because of this
- Higher frequencies sound less sharp and cleear, harmonics sounds with a kind of jitter over it... harshess cause a metallic harmonic on every hi freq.
- Less pure, deep and clear basses
- Middle freq are more annoying, may be because of the same jitter, no clean frequencies separation.

Well, sorry but i found Nokia Player has better sound quality, no matter what you do with the EQ ... i really preffer HiFi over EQ sound ...

I think may be this list of down sides on "Alon" sound quality are because of the same reason that UltraMP3 sound bad too (Alon sound a bit better anyway), Nokia "Music Player" on N70 i think use the internal (hardware) Mp3 codec for decoding process, just like the OggPlay MMF version that i used on my 6680 before... i compared the 6680 with OggPlay MMF and N70 Nokia Music Player and are no differences on sound quality.

All the Players that use own codecs (via software) loss sound quality...

To me right now OggPlay MMF (on 6680/6630 etc) ... and Nokia "Music Player" on N70 are the best sound quality players. (NOTE: Nokis "Music Player" installed on 6680/6630, donīt match sound quality as good as on the N70, i think that on older phones donīt use hardware decoding.)

All this test was playing Mp3 only .. i didnīt test any other format... but i donīt use any other format anyway...

i tested Mp3 16 bits 44.1 khz from 128 kbits to 320 kbits.

i really hope that OggPlay will lauch a N70 version and i hope it sound better than Nokia Music Player ;)

Cya!

:cool:

@AEFOX

I'm using OggPlay 1.65 on my n70 for Mp3 and ogg files. Seems to work fine.

Have u tried powermp3?
For me the built in equalizer really helps!
U can use pre defined or even edit your own frequencies!

Hope you be fine; my comments:

1.- Very good user interface (looks very nice)

2.- The EQ, does not chanc much the sound, just the EQ1 does a real effect in sound

3.- More or less complicated to handling the EQ

4.- The channel separation or me itīs fine (at least in my N70 works very but very good).

5.- It is a very good feature that when receiving an incoming call, player stops; let you talk and when the call is finished; it resumes the playback again (any botton has to be touched) very good!!!!

6.- A bad thing is that when you have an incomming text message, you do not realize that you have it until you exit the player (nokia player displays a message indicating that you have a new message in your inbox)

7.- Sound quality; EXCELLENT

8.- No support or m4A

I find this player much better than standard nokia player installed in N70

I found another thing:

You have o exit the player to see other things in your phone (or example to read the text messages)
It would be fine if you include as a feature "playback in second plane" as the Nokia player does; I mean that during the playback, you could handle your phone (send text messages, look into contacts, etc. with the player on.

You can multi-task with OggPlay and it supports m4a.
