That just talks about what I mentioned....some people prefer the older ones, and some don't. This article is usually posted by the Wolfson lovers, because the writer of the article prefers the Wolfson sound. But the fact remains, it is a matter of opinion....and there are many who prefer the Cirrus sound too. I am definitely in the Cirrus camp.

When the sounding from my rockboxed ipod 5g initially caught me by surprise, I was googling for answers.  I ended up reading that article and discovered the overrated wolfdaughter. ;)

If you have the money and the patience, I would recommend buying a used iPod classic either 6th, 6.5, or 7th generation and replacing the hard drive with an ssd. So much better.

The HDD's are actually pretty reliable from my experience. Non of the HDD's has actually failed on me including the stock HDD in the ipod I bought in 2006. I dropped them a few times on carpeted floor or asphalt ground but nothing happened. But I always put a soft case on the ipod.

i still like my iPod Video(iPod Classic 5.5 gen 30gb)

 

in more of a aesthetic, and sound reason.

one website does state that the best sounding is the iPod Classic 5.5gen

 

the second best is the iPod Gen 4, or the revised ones which are the ipod Photo, and the iPod Color.

 

reason behind it is the Wolfson DAC/Audio Chip.

 

in my opinion, with Grado SR80i's and no amp, it makes for a more warmer, colored, and better in depth sound than the Cirrus Logic Chips/DAC's thats in the 6th gen and above(including the iTouch,iPhone, Nano's over the 1st gen.)

 

although the Cirrus logic chips are lacking.

i do hear the differences with my iPod Touch 2nd Gen vs iPod Video.

the iTouch i own uses the Cirrus logic chips which IMO

has a more colder, Treblely, and slightly tinniy sound with the Bass to sound more recessed.

 

Although it is said to have a cleaner sound.

 

its all by personal choice really between the ipod video and the newest 7th/6th gen iPod classics.

 

i personally HATE the silver aluminum faceplates.

and i really like the Plastic faceplates, better to feel, and better looking + color

Can't agree on this anymore. The Classic looks ugly and boring :)

i agree, sure HDD's are said to be fragile but iPod HDD's which are really small are comparable to the durability of a Laptop.

 

they can take a beating although, they will eventually break but only in a LONG time or if your just those people who didnt take care of it in the first place.

 

rest assured, SSD is still better. but more costly....

haha yea! bring back the Original White Apple color!

 

im tired of the whole "Silver" future.

 

besides, if they really do think of reviving the iPod Classic line again by creating a new one. It should definitely have a SSD inside instead of HDD's

 

but they should have called the older ones "iPod Original"

Currently a 120Gb ssd runs about $200 - more than 3 times you pay for a 120GB hdd. But I would say the greatest benefit of having ssd is to avoid loss of music files from failed hdd's (if not backed up).
