The Gordian Knot does not skip at all. Could it be related to length of continuous play music? I'm considering deleting the Transatlantic to re-rip as a lame mp3 just so I can enjoy the album without interruption. It's a difficult call as I'd almost prefer to endure the momentary glitches over the unsatisfying experience of lossy compression music files (back to original thread topic).
Looks like you got a different problem then me. I have these mediation cds ( www.awakenedminds.com
) that have rain sounds and binarial beats (non-audible) and one track is 70 minutes long, one 54 minutes, and a couple of other 24 min., and it doesn't skip at all playing them. It also didn't have any problem when they were AIFF either. I've never had it pause more than once in the song when it does randomly happen. I'm using a 40 GB ipod.
edit: I still think this is a source or portable audio discussion doesn't belong in the headphone group.
