I don't have an iPod Classic, I'm evaulating it for hearing my music at home after conversion to AAC or MP3 with my HIFI.
Hi to all,do you think that an iPod Classic 160 GB + Dock with external DAC can be an HiFi audio solution?
I'm willing to bet most people have less than 500 CDs… and they can always use lossy audio that's perfectly transparent, at a fraction of the disk space.
In alternative to ipod classic/dap what do you suggest?

But a computer cost more than an ipod.
The iPod's greatest asset (and what you're paying for!) sits unused when you have it docked at home.
500 CD?! Ahem.... i think that most people have 100-200 CD not more
Antigen, beware that the latest generation of 160 Gb iPod Classics have some serious buffer-issues.

First, there's the limited user interface.

But they all require a computer with a monitor or TV attached.Some people (like me) just want a nice simple interface and don't want to have to turn on the TV to listen to music.
