iPod "Video" 5G vs iPod "Classic" 6G (amped or unamped?) - Page 2

I'm hoping to create the same warm and musical effect with line out to my TTVJ portable tube amp. 

I hope the ipod will be delivered on Monday..would have been nice if it had arrived before Xmas..
just a quick question, have you tried to adjust line out volume through RB? and if so does line out volume adjustment cause any degradation in sound? or just simply lower/increase the volume..

The volume stays constant in line out untill you get to a really low volume and the it really cuts it, more like a mute. The Rockboxed Sansa's do the same thing.

 

So in effect the line out is a constant volume.

Thanks for that info. seems like volume adjustment is not very useful

The amplifier can control the volume when using the line out. If you want to control the volume from the player you have to use the headphone out but you are better off using the line out and controlling the volume with the amp.

it's just that with my iems, my preferred volume is just above the channel imbalance. however, it would have been nice if I could adjust digitally the line out volume to give me slightly more leeway with volume adjustment.

still, can't complain, at least I can avoid the channel imbalance as it stands....

Hi, long time pass since i had post in the forum. Cheers for the help of other people from here they give:beerchug:

 

One thing i want to mention is that i have fixed my ipod video 5th gen but the sound is very muddy on electronic music.

My sony ericsson xperia mini has tons of better detaild sound and much more sound stage. like night and day. i can listen deepdish with ease and not frustrate my self.

With rock music the ipod is good but i regret my choice to fix it since i have my sony phone as better source with my m50x.

 

Thing is tha i had my hard drive broken, screen broken, and the metal case from the back from like 5-6 years ago and desided to repear them all becouse they say

that the  ipod video has the most warm sound. wel this sound give me headaches at least with the m50x. i dont know if using other headphone this could change though

 

From the ipod video, ipod touch 2gen and the sony xperia mini phone the sony produce the most deep relax and deteiled sound. the ipod touch is more defined it should be, also has more strong and loud sound and the video is too much muddy.
