Apple managed to do what appears to be a typical move for successful manufacturers. They have discontinued the use of a key piece of technology used in previous iPods: the Wolfson DAC. A "DAC", or digital to analog converter, is the chip that is responsible for turning numbers into sound (which is essentially what an iPod does). On the 6G iPod Apple has chosen a new DAC made by Cirrus Logic. This new chip apparently fails the taste test to an important community: people who care about the quality of their audio listening products. These are the same folks who throw away the headphones that come with the iPod and buy headphones that actually sound good.
Unfortunately this has me halting any iPod "classic" recommendations and purchases. I'm happy with my 5.5G iPod which uses the faithful Wolfson DAC and sounds like what a "classic" iPod should sound like. There are even folks who swear by the fidelity of even earlier iPods. Apple, please get it together.
I decided to check OLD RELIABLE (Amazon) and like ALWAYS, I was not Disapointed....!!!!
The Unit was Reburbished but JUST LIKE NEW...
No Flaws, No Dents, No Scratches.....WORTH EVERY CENT
I purchased my 160GB iPod Classic 2 weeks ago because I was getting very limited on my previous 60G iPod (my 4th iPod) and I thought the extra 100 Gigs of space would last me for the next years with no problems. That aspect of the product has proved to be true.
That's when the problems began.
First, after uploading my entire 60 Gigs of songs and videos (6 hours to do that) the menus were so sluggish they were unusable.
The coverflow view provided the album cover for every artist on every album as a different album cover so it literally took 5 minutes to scroll from the first album to the last which made this "selling point" totally unusable. If the coverflow view just provided a view of each album cover by the name of the album, like I do when I view CD's on my bookshelf I would be happy, but what they have done makes no sense at all. After installing the 1.0.2 firmware update things improved slightly because they removed artists from compilation albums from the sort order and moved them to the end of the list, but seriously, nobody at Apple seems to have even looked at how someone picks up a CD from a bookshelf... by the single CD case which is a single title, not arranged by who sang each track on each CD!
OK, we'll get around that coverflow problem by just ignoring it and not using it. Check.
So, I put the thing in the dock on my PC. Hours later after the first synch all is good. But then, each successive time when you put it in the dock you get into a repeating connected, synching, connected, synching, connected, syching mode, and you cannot stop it. iTunes says synching once, but then if you try to eject the thing you can't. iTunes locks up for minutes at a time.
What do I do next? I go to the Apple Support discussions. I realize that there are many, many comments about this. Hmm! So I post some questions and I make a point of saying I have bought 4 other iPods and none of them do this. They all get deleted from the discussion groups.
Then I start monitoring the discussion groups by downloading the entire website several times a day and I realize that Apple is literally deleting many, many posts about these same problems.
The message you get from them is that you are violating their guidelines which I guess means that if you complain that your product flat out doesn't work you aren't allowed on the "support group".
Then if you start to examine the discussion groups and realize that Apple has intentionally disabled many of the video functions of the previous iPod models which breaks EVERY non-Apple video device out there you have to start wondering if Apple has not become the Anti-Apple!
What ever happened to "Think Different"?
Seriously, this is the most flawed product Apple has ever produced and as a fifth time Apple iPod buyer I have to say it's the last iPod I will ever own. Apple seems to be much worse than any other company now that they have a monopoly on MP3 players.
My vote is to buy anything BUT Apple from no on because they just screwed me, and thousands of other people, over on this iPod Classic.
