Ah, alright. That puts me at ease, since I've got a reasonable amount of experience with the like of flashing ROMs, modifying firmware, etc. Looks like the question of whether or not I'm going to try and find an old 5.5G iPod has become a bit of a no-brainer. Also, I could use an LOD to bypass the internal amp and DAC when I want to improve the SQ, right?
Turns out my dad's old iPod has a metal front, so it's one of the newer ones. What's the cheapest I can get a 5.5G iPod in mint condition nowadays? None that I could see in the F/S section, but it's been a while since I looked. Who knows?
Anyway, thanks for the info.
