#iPod classic 5th gen project has been completed:
- 512GB flash storage- 3000mah *new* battery- a case with enough scratches to pass as vintage :^)
I also got a transparent front case but to be honest it doesn’t look that good and the fit was too tight on the screen for my tastes.
I’m using the original OS with ALAC lossless files, Rockbox has issues with the USB stack that I’m not too keen on fixing right now.
The sound subsystem delivers a great experience, but with more sensitive IEMs like the Campfire Audio Andromeda you can hear a pretty obnoxious hissing sound.
Nothing that can't be fixed by an impedance adapter though!
A small instance for a few friends.
