For your problem please try :
To hard rest your iPod classic 80 Gb

Did you try with other amp ?
Sometimes if the power not enough / under power can make clipping sound

 

Thanks Rudi mate! :)

 

Its only the 80gb Classic that is having issues, I dont know why as when I use it on its own or direct to an amp with LOD cable it works just fine.

As soon as I connect it to the CLAS all hell breaks loose ?!

 

However, Ipod Classic 160gb, ( Latest vers ) iPhone 4s, iPhone 4, iPhone 3gs all work with no issues at all.

Ive tried it with my T-Box but also my Pelican & E17 and they all get enough signal now with no clipping.

And I tried three different apple cables and all work fine.

Its only my 80gb classic thats the weak link. Cant win 'em all eh?!

If you hear M100 , maybe you can not believe before you hear M100 with M80 grey cable is the best sounding , as long I and my friends try it with M 80 cable .
All needs synergies in our Audio gear

Please see the picture below :
The left one in grey colour is M80 cable
The right one in red is M100 cable

In term of synergy the grey M 80 cable has better synergy with M100
Please try it , you can hear more clarity , more detail and better bass impact compare to the red M100 cable

 

I have the V80 Truebloods & both of those cables ship with them.

I must say I agree Rudi, Out of the two the stock audio ( Grey one ) mini to mini sounds better IMO than the Red one.

Could it be all the extras ( Mic, Button etc ) in the red one's signal path that degrade the signal compared to the grey cable? :)

 

Edit, Your grey cable also has buttons and mic etc in the signal path so my theory is no longer valid lol deadhorse.gif

Are you sure your 80GB is a Classic and not a Video (5.5G) ?  I've heard of other devices not being compatible with the 5.5 and previous units.

Unless I have a video??! I Bought it used so I assumed it was the iPod Classic G5... 

 

In iTunes it shows as iPod, I'll have a proper look tomorrow when my brains firing on all four lol!

Technically, they are not "Classics" until the 6th gen, although a lot of people just automatically call any hard drive iPod a Classic.wink.gif

That is what I was wondering as well. Go back one generation too far and iDevice's are not compatible....

Same here man, this bag is my dslr camera/gadget bag. I love it! It's called the thinktank retrospective 7. They have different sizes of this bag, depending on how much gear you want to carry. They are somewhat pricey, but it will last you a lifetime!

Paul, 

 

Yes you have a 5g ipod video and this is why when connected to the CLAS it does not work. The CLAS solo is only compatible with 6th generation and above ipods. I experienced the same problem without knowing this and had to buy an actual 6th gen classic.

Hi Guy's n Gal's

 

New Head-Fi'er here, had this set up for a little while now but only just found this site (sorry).

 

So here we have my current portable rig:

 

Source:  Ipod Classic 160gb (going to be rockbox'd I think)

Amplifier:  Fiio E11 with L3 LOD cable

Headphones:  Shure SRH940 (Home) & Bose in-ear (Gym/Travel)

 

A bit basic in comparison to some of the rigs on here but it always made my ears happy and has served me well till now, plus it's Leading me to want bigger and better things, cash allowing!!
 

(Please imagine a nice picture here similar to my profile pic)

 

Looks like I've got some serious reading to do now I've found this site!!
