7th Gen (2009) iPod Classic 160 SQ - Page 35

post #511 of 514
I have a 5.5 AND a 160GB classic. I also think my classic sounds better than my 5.5. From what I've read though, the 5.5 is supposed to be sonically superior because it has a better DAC. Different strokes for different folks I guess!

Personally i hate dsps that degragde the purity of the program and low level sounds so i have never rockboxed an iPod Classic.

I don't use EQ but there are many other excellent reasons to Rockbox the Classic including true drag and drop adding of music, Folder Browsing, an excellent dynamic playlist, customizable UI... The list goes on and on.

 That might a point in some cases.

 

Anyway what rockbox won't do is what the Classic needs the most (a few less ohms of output impedance and noise to match the awesomeness of the iPhone 5s and the Touch 5.

Rockbox does not change the sound quality of the Classic. The original FW codecs and the Rockbox codecs are equally good. The hardware is what it is.
