6th gen iPod Classic, 3rd gen iPod Nano, 1st gen iPod Touch

Recommended Posts

I like the new classic, metal casing and 160gigs is not a bad deal for $350. The nano is kinda nice I guess but I'm not interested in that little storage space. The touch is an utter joke.

If only the iPod had native FLAC and/or drag-and-drop support, it would make the Classic utterly enticing.

Otherwise, it's too much of a hassle for me to use. (Even though I use Rockbox, its GUI is way too ugly.)

My library is in FLAC, so I can either directly import it (if it supported FLAC) or have Foobar convert FLAC files on the fly (if it supported drag-and-drop).

The new classic is probably my next Ipod. Although I'll be keeping a watchful eye on the refurb store since it would stand to reason that the old 80gig model should be less than the new especially if it's a refurb.

i'm still perfectly happy with my 60 gb video.

Yeah, I'm still on a 3G 20gig, which is woefully too small and sooooooooo black and white.

My 5G 60GB Video running Rockbox has been great, but I have to remove music to put new music on. That wasn't tough for a while... There was a lot of stuff I didn't miss. But now it's getting tougher and tougher. Thankfully I'm not in a position where I can even consider an iPod upgrade right now, so it's not even an issue :D

I hear the upcoming v-dock + iTouch will rival $1750 CD players. ;)

I really was hoping the new touch-screen ipod will be able to replace my iPod and Palm (it's a bit of a pain to use Palm with Mac), but that won't be happening unless they drastically increase the storage space on the touch.

And the mass sale of previous gen iPod begins - I count 14 or so for sale on the first page of source FS sub-forum on HF.

Sweet, now if only those damn 325s would sell!

I put an order in for the 160GB model earlier today. I've been using a 60GB iPod photo at work for a few years now so this seems to be the ideal upgrade for me. Hope the DAC and line out are half decent at least.

It's tempting to sell my 80GB for the 160GB, but I haven't been it much lately so I can't see how to justify the expense.

I think the iPod Touch is actually pretty cool. Once the price comes down and the storage goes up I can see this replacing the nano line or even the classic line entirely. Wi-fi access iPod with big screen and 200GB of storage...yeah I'd go for that.

See, that's what I was hoping for - bigger storage. I could've justified the price if the storage was 60gb - 80gb, but not for 16gb.

And the mass purge of iPod continues on the other forum.

My 160GB iPod Classic arrive yesterday and I'm impressed. It sounds better than I had expected and it appears according to Vinnie it's not worth iModding (It must kill him to say that)

I really wish I had heard a 5.5G model to compare but based on what's being said, the Classic should in theory sound better than a stock 5.5G model. It certainly sounds very good for a portable device.
