So, does the ipod classic 6th gen avoid the problem(s) that the 4th/5th have which require them to be imod'd? In other words, is the circuitry of the 6th gen such that the quality is similar to that of an imod'd 4th/5th gen?
THXTHX!

What problems do you believe exist "which require them to be imod'd"?

FWIW, I find the SQ of my 5.5 G to be very similar to my new 7G. Both are very acceptable to my ears.

I will guess that an imod'd 4/5G will be superior compared to a stock 6/7G.

I'm unaware of any, but I imagine that some must exist (otherwise why would anyone ever imod his or her ipod?).

And is there a 7th gen? I thought the newest was the 6th..

Can I at least call it 6.5 G.
