I'm in the market for an iPod and I am currently deciding between the 5.5gen and the 7th gen classic.
I found two online that I am thinking about buying, they are:
1. iPod 5.5 gen 80gb refurbished (new battery) for $190.
2. iPod 7th gen 120gb lightly used for $180.
I've been reading a lot on these boards about the sound quality of both, and it seems like there is still a big debate about it. My question is, is the sound quality of the 5.5 (and capability for Rockbox, etc) worth spending 10 more dollars for 40 less gbs?
I just ditched the iTunes store and started buying CDs again, and currently have about 60 ripped ALAC in my iTunes library, and that number will continue to grow.
What would you guys do in my position? Is it possible to upgrade the 5.5 to 120gbs inexpensively?
