Want to upgrade because I am tired of swapping out music on my 16 gig Nano. Very annoying, I just want to dump it all into a single device and forget it.
A few questions and concerns:
1. Why do I see so many people fighting over the Cirius vs Wolfson DACs? Do they really make much of a difference? I hear some people say that post-5th gen ipods don't properly support line out. I am one who can't even discern 250kbps vs FLAC so would I really notice the difference in DACs here?
2. How is the navigation wheel? I really dislike the Nano because it is quite a pain to navigate and select songs. Thinking something with actual buttons will feel better.
3. Heard in one of the reviews that it isn't good for when you are moving. Is this still true of Gen 7 classics? Will I just have music stopping when I run or is this gonna actually do damage to the ipod or is someone really exaggerating?
4. How is the system response time? Is it fast and smooth compared to the Nano or will it stutter often when going through things like browsing through lists and album covers?
Thanks, and let me know if any of you are selling your iPod classics or want to buy an iPod Nano!
