I currently have a Shuffle. Works great, nice & small perfect for what I need in a music player now. All my music is ripped at 256kps ACC format and it sounds great through the Shuffle even tho it doesn't handle custom EQ's. If i found a very cheap full size iPod just for playing my music in the car (my headunit has AV inputs) would it sound as good as putting music onto mp3 CD's? I hear all this crap about the noise to db ratio of the iPods and that's where they suck (but my Shuffle doesn't prove that). But even if I can find a cheap 10gb to hold more than a 700mb CD it would be nice for the interface alone, but I want to make sure it sounds just as good. Anyone hook their iPods to their car stereo through the A/V inputs and play music at a high quality?
