    I've never known Apple to use substandard audio equipment. Audio professionals have been using Macs since the Macintosh Classic; I doubt that they would drop the quality of the sound processor on an audio device too far. And the fourth generation iPods used the same audio chipset as the iRiver H10; the PP5020. New iPods use an updated revision of that hardware.
    Welcome to the forums, BTW.

    Ipods are the 1 mp3 player because they were easy to use and the software is easy to use. only up till now the others are just starting to come up to par. As for the chips used in the ipods, Seedjar your right! Apple is not going to use subpar quality nope nada. As for quality I beat tested and all of these and at 128 bit quality realy no diffrence. Iriver became tinty when tring to tweak for best sound in the eq. You could say that it is personal taste as well.. It is all in the ear.
    I will say again as for mass marketing lets take a look at windows and mac. If it were not for the ipod microsoft would have an mp3 player and mass produced and it would be them. Nice to have a change in the market after being forced to have another microsoft product in my house.

    Point taken. I didn't say they were sub-standard just that at the time the creative was better. As I said I was told this some 2 years ago and obviously most reputable brands should have improved.

    I think there's something in development codenamed 'Origami', but they can't decide whether it should just be an iPod rival, or something different.

    Did you handle the nano technoracer? Not as many features as the more expensive one, but the size and thinness is unbelievable.
    Did you go for black or white too?
