Alrighty, that's all from my derailment of this thread.

 

Carry on.

Yes, I truly deserve that shaming...

It's sounds pretty close when I use the same amp, but the clip actually has a crappy dac. It has excellent wiring and circuitry though and that's why it sounds so impressive,

An ipod 5.5 has a great dac but very very poor wiring and circuitry, the Imod fixes that and sounds really good

iPod 6G and 7G = iPod Classic

 

iPod 5G and 5.5G = iPod Video

 

Different devices, different names, and different sound signature.

H20 knows I have a 5.5 video, I knew what he meant when he said classic

But u are right

The UI of rockboxed iPod video's or classic's put audiophiles' gears to shame. I think we can all agree on that. wink_face.gif

That pretty much reflects my experience mpawl between Sansa and iPod VIDEO. Actually I think I preferred the clip+ straight from the headphone out.

I hope your mods do marvelous things to the Apple players, UI or not I'll keep my Colorfly player until I hear one and make an assessment.

Since I became a head-fi'er the best thing I have done is to get my hands on modding these ipod video's and explore the wonder of the world myself. Never would I expect or know or believe how these caps could actually alter the sound quality so much with a direct out mod (big thanks to those head-fi'ers who know whom I am talking about). I am a heavy listener of classical music and I consider some symphonies and orchestral work are the most demanding for sound quality especially in terms of details and separations to avoid congestion and muddiness (which I hate even just a little bit in my music). And this mod of mine just put a smile on my face when I do the critical listening to these music pieces.

 

At one point I was thinking about selling the RX MK2 because it sounded a little too dark and laid back. It's the mods that have brought the amp back to my liking, and in fact I may have under estimated this little beauty initially.

 

With that said, I have not heard any audiophile's daps. The only non-ipod dap I tried was a J3, which was disappointing to my ears. To put my mind in peace, I am tempting to buy the AK120 from Amazon and give it a try. If it falls short of my expectations (not the UI), I can just return the sucker back to Amazon. One thing I know I won't go to the route of 24bits.

I thought the U2 special is only for looks but I was wrong ...

"Trying out" via Amazon? How about buying it and then reselling it instead of just trying it out. Or audition it at a meet or store if it's available.

I would like to do that but those options don't seem to be available.
