iPod classic: Couldn't ask for any better.

Posted

Pros: Line out, Capacity, Rockbox (and therefore native .FLAC support), Ruler-flat frequency response, battery.

It's exactly what it says it is. I've tried some great looking, incredibly expensive DAPs - Honestly, in my opinion, a lot of them just add colouration, or EQ, or look pretty. Some of them do perform well, but fall short in many areas. If you just want your music files to be reproduced exactly as they were mastered, with a line-out to pipe your music into any amplification you might require.. Get this device. Pinpoint accurate, to points that are far beyond the limits of human hearing. Adds no colouration, and Rockbox has fantastic EQ and crossfeed options if you want, not to mention .FLAC playback. A lot of people will hate on this device because it is mass-produced, and loved by...

iPod Classic 160GB

Pros: Easy to use, very large capacity

Cons: Inbuilt DAC is good but compromise

Brilliant for sheer storage size but it fills up quickly if you like videos, or have a lot of music at high bitrates or lossless. It's an iPod so the interface is easy.   Sound great for trains and other mobile use, worth pairing up with decent in ears to get some isolation and reduce the sound levels for sustained listening.   For stereo/hifi or in-house use buy a dock or cable that plugs into the bottom.

I pod classic 7th gen review

Pros: amazing WARM audio quality lots of space durable strong

Cons: Noisy. Hard Disk does not use flash memory it literary has a Hard Drive in it.

great device if you have an HUGE cd collection (like me) and want to take everything everywhere you go do not buy from game stop buy refurbished from apple.com there 200$ for this price its a great deal. i have heard that the ipod classic's hard drive dies after 3-4 years of usage so think twice before buying used. over all this is the best ipod you can buy i actualy bought this over the ipod touch 4 (crap). i have the ipod touch 2 but thats another story......... LONG LIVE IPOD CLASSIC

Best MP3 player for those with a large music collection

Posted

Pros: Fantastic battery life, Good audio quality, Great battery life, good design

Cons: HDD can be fragile at times

Due to the great battery life and an immensely large capacity, it's the optimal mp3 for those with a large collection.   It's also quite durable, I've had mine for 5 years now, and it still works fantastically and looks great too (practically new apart from a few scratches on the back).
