OK, I couldn't find a thread on this anywhere - I just thought I'd mention that for the first time in a long long time I just plugged my 3G iPod into my stereo (which is normally plugged into my G5) whilst I was fixing my G5. I listened to a song and it sounded much more grainy than on the G5.

I've got the ears of an audiophile, but not the technical expertise - has anyone else noticed this?

I think others will tell you that the iPod shuffles seem to have better playback quality than any of the larger iPods (including the minis). That's just what I have read on MR, though, I'm in no way qualified to say for myself. :o

If you're using the headphone jack you should expect poor quaility. I use a pocket dock which puts out a 1v line level signal. That is then routed into my reciever or car head unit and it sounds pretty dang good! :cool: good luck.
