View Full Version : Synchronization on the Touch?
As I read a bit about the touch, I wonder how well it synchronizes? It "appears" it is very similar to the controller, which I recall is more like a "software" player, and therefore doesn't synch as accurately as a "hardware" player. Is the touch truly a "hardware" player but with "controller" software? Can the beta testers chime in on the synch performance?
Synchronization will be perfect on the Touch. (there are other issues with the Controller.)
Is syncing on the controller a lost cause? I'm hoping the spinning wheel of frustration will get some love out of this.
Just to add a bit to this ... I've been a bit of a pain in the rear to Alan about Sync with Squeezeplay-based players recently -- I very regularly sync a Radio and Boom together, so if its not perfect I give him a bit of a hard time. :)
The sync takes about a half second to become perfect (at the beginning of the song) but after that it seems to be spot-on. I actually have the Radio and Boom in the same room and the audio is just perfectly-on-time. FYI this is syncing FLAC over WiFi on both players...
Is syncing on the controller a lost cause?
I think that it is most-likely a lost cause. There are hardware issues which probably cannot be resolved. If you time a controller you will find that it does not actually play at the correct speed.
