Welcome to Karma Limbo, where good Rio Karmas come when they die.
Karma Lover Since: August 4th, 2004
Hi, my name is Jim Thompson, and I have been a long time user and admirer of the Rio Karma. I'm sure you were as distressed to hear that the Karma would no longer be in production as I was after Rio's collapse. It's a shame because the Karma is a far superior sounding MP3 player to those remaining on the market. It's features and ease of use surpass the other HD-based players, not to mention its form factor is non-iPod (unlike everyone else). It doesn't play video, but what the heck do I need to watch tiny videos for?
For those of you interested, I have my 40 GB Ultra Karma loaded with about 32 GB of music (stuff you've never heard of like Rush & King's X). I carry it in a Lowepro D-Pods 20 case, and I listen to it using Shure E4C earphones...sweet!
My love for the Karma, and distress at their not being sold anymore, has resulted in my starting a hobby: figuring out how to fix dead Karmas, and passing that knowledge on to everyone. I have been finding dead Karmas on eBay and from other sources, and have been refurbishing them to the best of my abilities. I have also done repair or mod work for existing owners. Please use the menu in the top-left to have a look around my site. Perhaps you will find some useful information or interest in what I have done here.
