I am so archaic. Pair of 39$ RHA MA350 and iPod shuffle 1G (512MB) and totally happy apart from the awful cloth cable of the RHA earphone. But I like that there are a new niche of nicely made, rather...

I'm sorry, I didn't mention it because the spec is correct. I need to add that. Typically I don't review players, I review amps, speakers, do interviews, etc., so I'm learning. Thank you for pointing...

It's not a soft, breakable device, but it's plastic screen scratches easily, its seams are looser than those from Apple, and its body flexes more than any iPod except the original, plastic iPod...

I just put them in a drawer. I have like six that I no longer use and one, an iPod nano 7G that I keep around for when I leave the house. I treat them all like trash and not one of the decent players...

I have one on loan for another week. I've used it now for about two months (far past the initial loan time limit of three weeks) and feel that overall, it is a good player. I'll put up a formal...

ZOMBIE!
I know several people who own it. Here in Tokyo, the portable hifi league is well stacked. AK120 is pretty standard, and is run next to expensive amps as well. Personally, I'm enthralled...

You'll have to tell us first what you don't like about the iPod touch. Actually surpassing its output quality will be your first problem. Your second will be deciding where you want to sacrifice.

My all-time favourite is probably the original iPod shuffle. Small, sturdy as hell, and cheap enough that I won't lose sleep if it dies. Easy navigation and overall good sound are plusses. Background...

Indeed, 2,3 shows its age and living without gapless is hard. In context (against other audiophile players: C4, Hifiman, HiSound) it works as good or better, but I've been listening to gapless with...

Ah yes, that quote! I still believe that. Mainly however, I was speaking of HiSound's horrible products. The DX100 is certainly a contrasting player to HiSound's audiophile mulch, but its ethos is...

Every Sony player I've tested (I own three) test similarly, obviously with too high output Ω, often worse even than the other audiophile pinup, Cowon players.

You tell me when you are selling that iPod and I'll buy it. I love that model, though, the 2G and 1G, that can be rockboxed, are my favourites.
