I hear you on the touch screen. If I am out and about, that's when I use one of my rockboxed Clip Zips or my Shuffle....the Touch I'll use either at home, or wherever I am going if I bring it with me.

Thanks.I'll try it out.

The ZO2 is the only device that has ever made my Touch sound 'good', and its still not as enjoyable as the HO from my T51.

Is there a service that can replace the chip with wolfson to improve the sound on my iPhone.

Estreeter only if you knew the power of the Studio V lol ;). Makes the T51 look like a rag doll in comparison.

Whatever is in there is sounds amazing. I also thought the amp was unmarked so how can they be sure? At least to my knowledge its not drawing power constantly like a class A amp normally does. If anything couldn't the amp be rated at Class A but not constantly draw at full load?
