I'm thinking to buy an used iPod Classic 160gb late 2009 for 100 € but I haven't decided yet..
I use iTunes match, actually on my mother's iPod touch (4gen 8Gb) that's sound good to my ears. iPod touch it's more expensive (I would buy a used one) but it offer a cool interface with more features (wifi, games, video) and iTunes match. Anyway these features need often a wifi connection while ipod classic doesn't need it. It has a huge hd for storing all my music.
My smarthphone is a Galaxy Note 2 that have a good SQ (with micro sd 32 gb I can listen also FLAC files) and google play music which is not good as itunes match IMHO...
I don't know if I shoud buy an ipod classic, an ipod touch or simply remaining with the note 2... (I don't like sync my media with USB cable, I actually prefer cloud for music..)
Hope someone advice me
