You rig look good and sound very good too
I am as fan boy from IDevice, since lightning came out a bit disappointing with lightning
Connection .
Why apple change from 30 Pin to lightning ?
With 30 pin I have so many different cable I can use with it
Lightning only certain thin cable can be use

 

Thanks Rudi,

Yes the lightning is a bit annoying. I even have some older 30 pin accessories that don't work even with the certified Apple lightning to 30 pin adapter. Notably my most important one - the car FM transmitter. It works fine with my 7G classic however, and any other iPod. How odd. Hopefully though the technology of the lightning will provide us better things in the future, we will see.

 

With that said, here's my ultra portable and very decent sounding setup I've been using this week:

 

iPod touch 5G > Magnus 1 > Heir Audio 4.A (R.I.P Heir)

 

Although the 8.A is arguably more versatile and certainly more fun, the 4.A is no slouch. A clean and smooth sound that does well with many genres

Has anybody here actually amped an iPod touch 1st gen via line out? I mean everyone says it sucks and the other touches blew it away, first of all the 1st gen itouch was the last ipod to ever feature a wolfson chip, I'm sure the bad sound quality is because the internal amp sucks.

I feel it would be competitive with an IMOD 5.5 because it still has a wolfson and improved circuitry over the 5.5

And for everyone else, Lets not let this thread degrade in an argument over the specifics of what is deemed portable or not?!
I for one have what I call a very portable rig ( Voyager and rockbox'd 5.5 video ) but I also consider my 4 stack rig portable, In the sense that I can carry it in a shoulder bag with cans, And listen to it where ever I choose. IMO it's still portable if you can pick it up and take it with you.
Transportable / Portable.... whats the point in arguing? Surely this thread is just a means for us to all share our beloved rigs and our methods of listening to high quality audio?! 

Paul smily_headphones1.gif

I am agree with you Paul
The goal to share the possibility from many portable / transportable audio gear here .
With the pictures all Head Fi er friends can more understand what is going on .
IMO

I really wouldn't mind that.

Both of these categories have a lot to offer.

Thank you that you are like me a bit disappointed with lightning connection
I hope apple can hear from the customer specially for audio SQ
And always improve their audio SQ , if not they can lost the competition again another brand .

I beg to differ, the headphone out of the 5/5.5 is better than the others. Having a wolfson chip is not the same as having the wolfson chip, and the 5/5.5-gen classic is the only one with the WM87588G cool.gif

As a 5.5G owner, my response to your post is this....

I agree, any other iPod I play will only be through a CLAS, except that good ol' 5.5.  But that's just me!

5G iPod owner too.

 

 

I still regret dropping it on accident...otherwise it would be in like-new condition. :(

 

Also is there any way to change the battery? Mine only lasts ~3 hours.

Yes, people change the batteries in them quite often. I believe there is a special little tool you need to open the iPod up, but I'm not 100% sure of that.
