Would you care to tell us what ~$50 phones you use? Also, there are some points made by members: -The ipod may sound bad with low bitrates, and may be better with higher bitrates.

I don't have any speakers. I might in the future, but that’s a long way off (maybe when I am living alone). Hehe... the supra. Well, let’s just say no. It'd be nice, maybe when I win the lottery, but not now (The current amp-buying is financed...
