I'll admit I haven't heard the newest iPod line-up I have heard the previous generations and was not impressed. I found they were all easily trounced by my Cowon J3, and my Cowon lost out to my Walkman Z. So this is where I stand today.
If you have anything further you would like to address on the subject, take it up in a PM. This thread has gotten far enough off topic as it is.
Any word on the internals of the Lumia 920?
ok, the cirrus logic chips are the superior DAC. And the iPod touch, especially when using a wonderful app such as EQu, Equalizer, or a few others, equals the Cowon lineup when it comes to sound quality laden sound enhancements. As for Apple maps & the joke update called iOS 6 - that has nothing to do with this conversation,...eh??? I've owned & own Cowon, Sony, Samsung, Sansa, Archos, Creative, iRiver, Apple, etc. each has pluses & minuses,...BUT don't pass judgement based on hearsay & speculation. I base my opinions on testing,...the current iPod touch is the best so far in the touch lineup. It's excellent & I'll have one shortly.
And, I don't think I need bother wasting my time with a pm. I think we're done here,...
As for internals, I've seen everything but the audio chip. It would be nice to know what it is.
