Hey, I am hoping that someone has tried both and has an honest opinion. I have christmas money and wish to buy an MP3 player, I was wandering which is better, the Sansa Fuze or the Ipod Touch. I only really care about sound quality and any opinions however slight about audio quality would really help. I really don't want any price value opinions though as I want an honest opinion about only sound quality. Thank you! The stock headphones don't matter, I have sennheiser cx 300 ii's and hd 485's. I will put lossless or high bit rate audio on it. Thank you, all help much appreiciated,

Oh, what the hell, I'll just give the easy answer. The iPod Touch 4, connected via USB to that CD player, will be able to play lossless ALAC, decoded and transmitted digitally. THAT's what you want, but what people here are telling you, is that there are more economical or simpler ways to achieve similar sound.

Soap,
http://nwavguy.blogspot.com/2011/02/sansa-clip-measured.html was posted earlier, the Fuze V2 has the same components as the clip+, it, from it's test, show that the clip+ is a very similarly audio capable player, winning in some audible tests and losing in others but it's rather close. You said it could player ALAC lossless decoded and transmitted digitally (The Ipod), but I was wandering what the difference between decoded audio digitally transmitted over USB and transmitting undecoded audio files over usb and play them on the hifi (assuming they will even if they may not because we don't know yet). You also said "USB is a digital "pipe". RCA is a connector type. AUX is an input label", ok, I understand they are different but they are all separate inputs on my hifi, would going through AUX or RCA give worse quality sound from my lineout on my fuze? Sorry.

Just buy an ipod and be done with it. The Apple kit isn't always the best or the cheapest, but it usually does the right thing without being complicated. In your situation thats probably the best option.
