Hallo everyone! First I have to say, that I love this forum and really appreciate all the help provided here. So, Thank you all! Well, my third (!) iPod classic finally broke and I need a repalement that sounds equivalent or better. I obviously won't buy another classic (- that would be my fourth), just to find it broken after a while again.. I use the UE Triple.fi 10 and listen to all kinds of music. I always turn the EQ off, as I want my music to sound natural and balanced. I read that some players might have issues with the Triple.fi's, resulting in a weak bass response, respectivement a non linear frequency response. Where can I get more information on that? Which player "won't fit" my Triple.fi's and which go well with my earphones? Do the iPods have the same problem? What I like(d) about my iPod classic is its clairity, detail and punchy bass. I used to have an iPod Color whose SQ I really did not like: the sound was very muddy and had a terrible static hiss; the bass was too weak. But the classic sounded much clearer, richer and had a much nicer bass. For me the sound quality is by far the most important thing. So could you recommend me some really great sounding players? (I woun't use a headphone amp..) Thanks in advance!
