I don't get the fatigue factor from the Cirrus models that you describe, but I can see where it would be that way for others. I've owned both, and I currently have the 5.5....and it is my preference, although I could be happy with either one.

 

I didn't get the fatigue factor with my B&W C5, because they are not as neutral as the Q701. It appeared only with the Q701 or atleast it wasn't really a problem with the C5.

 

As i said, there's nothing wrong with the Cirrus, just not my main choice. If I do critical listening sessions I do them with my home setup.

How would you rate the 5G touch vs the 5.5 iPod Classic ?
Well I think it gives it a damn good run for its money dude, for a while I didn't want to believe it but I mean it dude there's something special about that touch 5g it's called CLARITY

how do I scan the files cause I just about melted my ears today tinkering with it, by the way I'm using some Logitech UE6000 phones and like metal so any suggestions would be nice

I realise I'm bumping quite an old thread, but I discovered my iPod Touch 1st gen in a drawer the other day, and thank your deity of choice that the battery still works, because the Wolfson DAC is delicious.

 

I'm more than familiar with the Cirrus DAC's in new iOS devices (I've had many of them) - but the spatial imaging of the old iTouch is magic - I don't think I could ever go back. I certainly didn't appreciate what I had at the time, and I'm very glad to have rediscovered it.

 

So my new (old) DAP is my 1st Gen iTouch running Whited00r 7. Bliss.
