I have a mate who has one... quite funky.

Once the songs are on there, you never need to put it near a computer again.. unless you want to add more songs etc.

gordy, the ipod is capable of 30gb's worth of mp3... that's alot, really, alot!... think of the average 4-5 minute song in mp3 format encoded to 128kb... it's about 5mb... so in 1gb there is 1024mb (near enough)... 1024 / 5 = 204.. so let's call it 200 songs to everyone gigabyte.. now let's add another 29gb to that and we get... about 6000 songs on an ipod..

there u have it, 6000 tunes averaging at 5mb each! :o

wow!

it is indeed the dogs m8, wish i had one :thumbsup:

i've got a portable mp3 player m8, i want an ipod tho... mp3's are below CD quality... and so are minidiscs contrary to popular belief!

CD is the best sounding media we have, apart from clean vinyl on an awesomely awesome turn table

although SA-CD will take over now, and DVD-Audio...

If you download MP3's over 192 bps thats CD quality.

I never notice any differance listning to CD's or MP3's nowadays,

most of my stuf is 192 or 320

CD quality is officially 172kps... so 192 and 320 especially is overkill!

you can't recreate the quality lost when transferring CD to mp3... because u lose a range of the music in order to compress it into a small file like mp3.

so even though you're encoding to mp3 at 192, it won't sound as good as a CD to trained ears.. it can't.

Even when you copy a CD with your computer, it's nothing like as good as the original to trained ears, you need professional cd copying equipment to make a 99% decent copy.

I've got a 40Gb Ipod.

The software is easy to use.

Takes a bit of time to import all your CD's but once they're on there, you don't need to use the computer again.

Battery life - about 6-8 hours, but you can buy an apaptor to take AA batteries if you can't get to a power point in time.

hmm, i always thought it was 192 - well you learn something new every day!!!

yeah i understand what your saying about trained ears. An ex-friend was a DJ who used a damn laptop for his sets, didnt do anything but click & i must admit it did sound dodgy.

but to me MP3's are fine, ive been slightly deffened by nightclubs & my home & car stereo's so it doesnt really bother me :lol:
