the whole point of having a 5/5.5G iPod is to make use of the wolfson chip. It'll sound nicer with a proper amp.

I had my imod for the longest time until the logic board died. Using a classic atm, I still prefer my iMod.

If you are feeling adventurous the following mod is quite interesting:
- replace hdd with compact flash (improves batt life)
- with the additional space, put the caps internally
- with internal caps, you can now use a normal LOD.

That was my previous iMod, courtesy of fonebone.
