ahh dam it just got one. for 200 and 160GB I am happy now. I also engraved it with: My music is best understood by children and animals.

Hi guys.

About new iPods: what are their S/N ratio and Total Harmonic Distortion (THD)?
Are they still use the Wolfson Dac (24 bit like the Wolfson Wm8750S in Teclast players?)?

Thanks

You might be intersted in this information that I've found on head-fi.org forums:
DAC and output stage info from Vinnie of Red Wine Audio, the author of iMod

This "Vinnie" is a joke.

He said he couldn't even do any fast A/B switching let alone it being a double blind test.

quotes like "I've only spent around 1 to 2 hours of listening to these two units, but so far I already prefer the sound of the iMod 5.5G with Vcap dock... there is a little more weight in the bottom and the top-end is a little warmer/sweeter sounding. The 6G is a little thinner sounding in comparison." Classic audiophile speak. I just googled what a Vcap dock is and it's some snakeoil voodoo black box costing $390 plus S/H.



He's obviously very invested in this magical black box he's paid $390 for and now all the other idiots in that thread are taking it as gospel that the iPod has subpar quality just because he used a lot of big words like sinewave and push-pull output stage. Uggh.

I prefer this version:

http://www.audiocircle.com/circles/index.p...43925.msg397023

What is it with "audiophiles" and molded plastic clashing hideously with outdated wood design? My favorite is seeing an 80s style dull silver turntable connected to a giant wooden amplifier six inches away. If you're gonna pay tens of thousands of dollars for audio equipment, at least buy stuff that looks nice together.

Another thing: what is it with "burn-in"? What does this even mean in the context of modern electronics? Do people really believe that "accelerating burn-in with 24/7 linear power" will "increase the dimensionality" of their music? Are they even aware that "linear power" means "convert voltage with simple transformer"?

The ridiculous dancing smileys aren't convincing me I should drop $400 on $10 of electronics and wood. The thing looks like a giant door stop.
