hi guys. i use ipods as audio source, for music listening. i have tons of cds and i need a device which can help me put everything only in one place. 3 years ago i bought a 60gb ipod. my gears at home: monitor audio gold signature gs10 and gslcr, with svs pb10isd and denon avr2802. and then i needed more space, and i bought the 160gb ipod. WRONG MOVE!!!! The airiness of my gold sigs were not there. I noticed it immediately. The bass, while heard, didnt sound warm at all. and there were distortions on everything, especially female voice. somehow i felt the sound that came from the sound system didnt really envelope me. i thought : - the rear gs10s were new, they need exercise. so i let them sing for 2 days straight. - something is wrong with my new hometheater room. perhaps the carpeted walls. and then i plugged in my old 60gb ipod, and everything sounded GREAT!!! i am gonna ditch the newer ipod. seriously.
