    Why doesnt a company make a 1" long pure silver power cord???

    Lead is still used inside most large IC's to connect the chip to its packaging (Ball Grid Array).

    BRANDS / DAP's with dedicated "Line-Out"

    Most/all of the Sansas that use their own plug (e200, fuze, view). I haven't used any dock accessory, but I've read the level is done digitally, and retains a setting independent of the earphone setting.

    Whats wrong with firefox. I HATE IT
