I'm very reliably informed that Zune is planned to become a full product line - like the iPod - with players of different sizes doing different things. I'm told that a Zune Shuffle equivalent is...

Well done, Atrax, you've shown your true colours perfectly.

I pointed out that he doesn't criticise audio quality - that's my beef with the Zune, not his.

As to neutrality, I'd have thought that his opinions of the 'wonderful' Sansa 200, and his praise of...

Atrax,

If another company provided me with a DAP that did something better than the iPod does, I'd be happy to acknowledge it. If it suited my needs better than an iPod, I'd keep and use it. I...

You'd value the opinion of anyone who went along with the fiction that iPods are useless, purchased only by fashion victims and the technically inept, and have poor sound.

With respect, the Zune's biggest fault is much more simple. It lies in the fact that it doesn't actually play music very well. Everything else is sort of peripheral.

If MS had produced a great...

Atrax,

If you can't play nice, I really suggest that you should keep quiet.

Utew,

That's because I was answering Atrax' infantile abuse, and correcting his mistaken assertions, as well as answering the OP.

I noticed the prepondrance of Head Fi preference of Bass Freq over CX300 because it ran counter to my personal preference - I prefer the CX300, but had only heard proto-Bass Freqs.

Most people (on Head Fi) now suggest that the Bass Freqs sound better than the CX300.

I think it's too close to call, and in any case, the differences in sound are more apparent than the...

I suspect that there have been small runs of both Gen 5 iPods and Gen 2 Nanos using an alternative supplier's audio chipset (perhaps the original Gen 3/4 chipset), and that this helps account for the...

Clicky,

I'm not at all surprised that you love your iPod Nano. It's a great sounding MP3 player, and it's perhaps the best iPod since the Gen 1, sound-wise.

For features (and I'm a big iPod fan) the iPod is worst. You have the fewest add-ons. The Zen is probably best.

I'd played with the office Zune. I noticed how big, cheap and clunky it was.

I was sent a Zune and didn't have a PC in the house. The impression of...
