Default iAudio F2: Is equalizer without distortions?

Hello,

I am looking for an MP3 player with a good (custom) equalizer.

I tried e.g. SanDisk Sansa and Apple iPod nano II with no luck: If you enable equalizer and add e.g. some more bass, both produce small but noticeable distortions of the sound. I think this is because of how simple the equalizer is implemented: the emphasized frequencies seem simply to go out of sampling value range - clipping artefacts result.

How has Cowon done the equalizer in the iAudio F2 ?
Any clipping distortions around?

Any hint is of great value to me!
Thanks!

Tom

iAudio usually has great EQs in their players. I wouldn't worry about that.

You can't compare them to cheap Sansas or the crippled iPod - they're in a whole other league, sonically.

The EQ settings for almost any iAudio player is great. My F2 settings sound awesome!
