well the ipod mini has a wolfson 8731 dac, a pretty clean line out signal.... and has great battery life with an upgraded battery and compact flash to replace the microdrive.

 

I use rockbox to play flac and its a good little dap.  I never use the HO with ipods.  It's not night and day but yeah its slightly warmer.

Figured I'd post my rig while I still had it all. Probably gonna sell some or all of it soon. I've got my eyes on other gear and I'm too poor for a collection.

 

 

Still don't have a GAME card for the 801 so the 4.ai sound congested on some tracks. Do any of you know if the GAME card is actually worth the price of admission for IEM users?

post #4072 of 11522

I have had the Game card so long i don't really remember but i think i heard an improvement.  I was using it with all my headphones, at the time i just thought it was an upgrade.  It looks much better put together than the stock card.  Only later did i find out it was for iems......duh!  By then i was using an external amp often and at that point, and now, I use the 801 with the game amp and iems primarily and use other players with external when going with portables.  Got to say that the 801/Game amp still sounds better to me than my Fostex HP-P1 or the Solo, at least with iems.

CK4 / BH also leans cool which is towards my preferences.

 

 

Would the CK4/C3 be a substantial upgrade over an iPod Classic?  The reason I keep going back to it is the amount of space.

 

 

 

 

I imagine one day in this thread I'll come look and not see pictures being quoted several times in a row.. maybe one day.

Head over to the C3 impressions thread and ask some members on their opinions, a lot of them came from iPod, Cowon, Sansa.
