    Clip+ sounds better than the Classic

    I've had a Clip+ for almost a year and just received a 7th generation iPod Classic. After listening to the Classic, the Clip+ has more detail and sounds more dynamic. I am surprised and disappointed.   Has anyone else experience the same?   Would the 4th generation Touch sound closer to...
