    To be honest if it wasn't for OSX I would never buy an Apple product again. I just hate Windows/PC that much. My addiction is not to Apple just their operating system. Yes I know you can get OSX for PC's and have fiddled with it on someone's PC but it just didn't feel the same. It's quite a conundrum for me because I think Apple really jacks prices for what they put out. Sure it looks slick, but way over priced.

    Me and some mac friends once discussed the possibility of 'kill switches' installed in Apple products because everyone always seems to have problems as soon as the warranty runs out. Personally I never buy extended warranties on principle. I feel products should not have problems after 2 years of purchase unless you abuse them.

    I don't, i'm still on Mini-disc :lol: I have the Sony Hi-MD MZ-RH1, top of the range. PMC recordings, the lot. I'm a vinyl junkie(records), so the Mini-disc format works for me. Plus i really don't need to be walking round with all my music on me, all of the time.

    So the answer to your question is, i don't use an MP3

    Er, i kind of did give a reason in my first paragraph. I then went onto slag Job's outfit. So your telling me that the Ipod is the best sounding MP3 around? If you believe that, fine. Your hearing obviously is'nt what it used to be.



    Plus, i own a PC desktop :lol: because i play a lot of games, which would struggle on a standard laptop(and i don't want to spend £££ on a gaming laptop) and on a MAC i would'nt be able to play games as nobody makes games for the MAC(bit ltd).
    I like to sit in a comfy chair, with my large monitor and play Total War.
    I did have a laptop, but over heating and bad graphics card made me get the desktop.
    It's funny people go on about the MAC OS, because all the MAC user's i know, run Windows 7 as well, and use W7 most of the time.

    i think you can listen to AIFF and WMA files on the iPod. You can on iTunes anyway, and I don't need perfect sound when I am on a portable.
    I have djed with 320kps mp3 using Serato 24 bit and it sounds damn good.

    as for your friends on mac osx using windows 7... that is rare among my friends, and most of them use the Mac.

    I couldn't believe it myself, but the output makes all the difference believe me.

    Hmmm...dunno...I know people who swear blind that gold connectors on cables make music sound better. It doesn't of course.

    Even better gold connectors on optical cables. Suckers :lol: :mrgreen:

    Mp3s sound worse than uncompressed formats or vinyl, that bit is obvious. Personally I can't tell the difference between 320kbs and a cd in my hi-fi or FLAC. Its negligible and not enough to get concerned or worked up about IMO.

    the iPod isn't the best sounding MP3 player out on the market though, that I would say (again, IMO). Older creative players sound really good. Just a shame they were so big and the menu system was horrendous :lol:

    And MD's are awesome.

    I've definitely noticed a difference in sound quality between my iPod Shuffle and my iPod Touch, but I can imagine that the MP3 decoder chip that was shoehorned into the Shuffle (which is about the size of a Chiclet) isn't as elaborate as the one in the Touch.
