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....
