 the main thing about DX100 is that you can't control it with out looking... If I have the money I will get 801... and it is probably my next thing to get..

 

Well there is shuffle for that :). Then again I have a Studio V which is easily usable without looking.

You are not supposed to look at it. wink_face.gif

 haven't used it in a while.... the internal amp is just not good enough... don't know what's causing it but it has horrible distortion from time to time which doesn't happen with a portable amp... that's without commenting the noise and low sensitivity of the internal amp...

hmm, my ears are just not that good to hear those things or to be bothered by them. Once the music starts playing I totally forget about sound quality. wink_face.gif

Are you using EQ presets with Apple's firmware? They cause distortion unless you run mp3gain -a on your MP3s or aacgain -a on your AACs before transfering them to the iPod.
