Hmm. I was hoping yours might not be 2G. My touch is 2G, same problem.

Equalizer was the only one I could get working.

It's simply called "Equalizer" < that is the app name.

well if you got it working for your 2g im willing to give it a shot. its much cheaper to spend $3 on an ap than $100 on an amp or even $200 on a source

I think you may be pleasantly surprised in the results.

well i bought it in the app store but couldnt transfer it to my ipod. once i get a wifi signal ill try and download it directly but from what iv been reading it looks like they compleatly phased out 2G suppors with their 3.0 update. looks like a wasted $3

I installed Equalizer  on my touch about five months ago. I know any further updates aren't supported on 2G, Hopefully you can still get it running on 2G's final version still. See how you go.

If you cannot, I'm sorry about that.

well.. If you do go ahead and look at new players, I would highly suggest a rockboxed sansa clip + or clip zip, it's my preferred player atm.

well i managed to get it installed on my ipod. all it took was a jailbreak, the install script and a little file management. so as of right now i have the newest version installed om my 2G and i gotta say its a lot more stable than i though it would be. the main issue I'm running into is that the next track starts whenever i change any EQ setting so i would have 2 tracks playing at the same time, at which point i would have to restart my ipod. but as long as i pause the track before i make changes it seems to be ok.

 

so far I'm very impressed with the app. makes my fiio seem useless. literally endless adjustments! as long as the app stays relatively stable I'll probably end up selling my amp. thanks for the help and advice guys!
