    iTouch uses the same Wolfson audio chip a iPhone (WM8758BG) and not the Cirrus audio chip as the iPod Classic/Nano ..

    having said that, there are reports of hiss and background noise on iTouch.

    Audio chips

    As someone knows which audio chip is found in these (where in the world did you find the info?), anyone happen to know which chip was used in the last gen iBook G4 and which one is used in new MacBooks?

    I'm interested in the quality of the DAC...

    The 3G iPod nano and iPod classic are basically the same hardware, aside from size, battery, and memory.

    While the iPod touch (not iTouch! come on people!) and iPhone use the Wolfson DAC, they don't sound anywhere near as good as the 5G and 5.5G iPods.
