After 5ish years i've finally filled up my 4th gen 32gb ipod and need to get another.
I was about to take the plunge on amazon on a brand new 160gb one but was quite startled on some of the reviews where I read lots of people complaining about deterioration in sound quality on the brand new ipods compared to early models.
I use my ipod in the car or just walking to work and never connect it to a hifi or anything, hence all my music on my ipod is ripped at 128kbps, which for my use does me fine. Has anyone who uses their ipod in the same way as me (ie not for hifi) recently done a similiar upgrade and are unhappy with the results? Should I be overly concerned about this 'sound quality deterioration?'
Thanks for reading.
