Will iPod Classic get a refresh?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I've had an ipod video since 2005 I think, and it went strong untill last year. It had high quality audio and therefore a source to my equipment (allthough through the dock connector) LOD --> SSMH --> HD650. Sadly I dropped it several times. Allthough the first times nothing majorly happened, I think this time the hdd is wrecked.

That's why I'm looking to buy another classic so I can rockbox it and put my flac files on it.

As apple just released new stuff like the new dock connector, I'm assuming they'll try and pull it through their whole line of equipment, including the ipod classic?

Anyone think they'll do a refresh soon? Because I'd rather wait a few more months as I'm soing fine running from USb alone.

Thanks,
Dries

Unfortunately no. The ipod industry is diminishing because of smartphones rising storage and compatibility. Also, the new dock connector doesn't actually improve performance.

Apple are having an event on the 23rd, so on tuesday. They may announce a new classic there- however i doubt it. If we expected a new Classic to come out it would've been shown when the Touch and Nano were updated. Sadly, i don't think apple want to update their line as they don't view the classic as 'money making product'. I would go elsewhere company wise - have a look at Cowon their mp3 players can run flac standard and cheaper than apple products!

I know it doesn't improve performance -_-, but if they introduce a new dock connector, it seems logical they'll place it on all their devices on the next refresh, because evry accesroy will be on the new dock

I have looked at cowon a while ago, and no, their devices are more expensive and have not the desired 160GB capacity

Come on man, just fix the one you have or buy a used one. On a second note, I'm not sure of Foxconn's practices right now, but in the past they have treated their employees very poorly. Would these same people who assembling Iphones assemble Ipods as well? I wouldn't want to support any part of Foxconn who treats their employees like that.

Then don't ask for help if you know everything. We're trying to help you, and your attitude comes across very disregarding.

Lol, then you should start off with buying... NOTHING that's Made in China. I absolutely don't approve how foxconn manages things. But I also think that the reason is so in the spotlight is because they supply our well known and adored apple company. I'm sure there are even worse companies behind the productions of those free toys in your cereal. That's a good start right there: want to back up your statement, don't eat cereals and don't buy anything chinese....

You're right, I might have been a bit too straightforward on that, I'm sorry. My apologies.

I would find the MP3 player with the longest battery life that plays FLAC, since you have a Starving Student Millett Hybrid the guts don't matter too much.

I use a Sony Walkman for its 52 hours of battery life. It may not have the fancy Android/iOS, but I only need it to play music.
