Pros: good build quality, good looking, large capacity, click wheel, user-friendly

Cons: don't support flac

I was looking a player to replace my imod 5.5 (ipod video 5.5 modded), as it only has 3 hours battery life. Because I love the click wheel design and I have loads of songs, I bought an ipod classic. It's thinner and lighter than my imod5.5. However, the sound quality is worse than the previous generation. The previous generation are using wolfson's dac which is way better than the cirrus logic's dac(dac that is using in ipod classic). I felt disappointed in it. In addition, this ipod classic cannot be rockboxed. The sound is quite flat and neutral.


I read lot’s of different opinions about the use of Wolfson vs Cirrus. But if it sounds flat and neutral than I suppose I’ts ok. I will be getting one soon . And a Fiio E12.. hope the two play well together. Using LOD the new lightning connector has no LOD so no option.
