    The Evo, even with the largest SD card that it accepts, would not hold even half of my music collection.

    So... no. I won't be replacing my iPod anytime soon, for this among other reasons.

    i have 160GB of music, so that'd be a big fat no.

    I wish I could get a giant SSD in my evo though, that'd be great!

    I have a beanbag mount that is just as good. It's a little bulky compared to windshield, but stil....

    Connect using the preamps. The other methods are horrible regardless of source device.

    not an option on mine, unless i ran straight to the amp

    and even if you did use preamps, you'd still have to use the headphone jack

    i'll stick with the wired connection and hu controls

    Don't get me wrong if the HU controls it, don't change I'm just saying for others preamps are just as good in most cases...

    I think I would like a car dock option for the music player to make it more drive use friendly... A touch screen would be easier to navigate than any HU I've ever owned... I never owned a touch screen HU obviously lol... Every HU I've ever owned have nothing but preamps cause they requie external amps :D

    Yeah it probably just doesn't have them... It's not uncommon to find ones with no aux in... All HU's I've ever owned were ampless and usually meant for heavy duty amp outputs... So they usually provide a horde of preamp options including aux in...

    The nice thing about the iPod's data port cable is the fact that it charges while it is playing music at the same time through its own line out, and if you have that option, it's the best way to go... For iPods... For all else, preamp is going to give you just as clean a signal so long as you run your lines away from your power cables or do it perpendicularly...

    FM and BT is the worst ways to go, and high level inputs also... But the EVO can certainly hold its own when used with preamp... I "can" hear the difference with nice headphones, but the background noise in a vehicle is enough to throw the SQ thing out the window... Not only that, but digital music isn't "audiophile" to begin with even if 99.99% of mortal ears can't tell the difference lol...

    The only reason I'm keeping my classic once again is because it's a SUPER good external HD and I got it as a present from the family... I don't use it, and my pockets really can't take the load... If I had a choice, I'd rather carry a 7" laptop or something because it can do so much more... That's just me tho...

    P.S. I can fit a 7" laptop in my pockets LOL...

    iPod's line level out trumps Evo's headphone only out any day of the week.

    I don't think he meant just "upgraded". He said a system worth more than your truck.

    I would only get rid of my ipod if my evo worked through the cd player (as in full capabilities, like my ipod has right now)

    It better damn well do better cause it's a dedicated music device lol... However, for in the car listening while driving 65 on the highway, both will be just as well...

    Except that the iPhone does this as well, so your first point is moot =)

    I wouldn't replace my iPods, but I certainly don't need to tow them around as much for music-first purposes any more. I don't expect my on-go music to sound as good on my Evo because it's a phone first and media device second.

    What Evo has done is eliminated all possibility of me getting the upcoming iPod Touch or an iPad. I might get a refurbed or used Nook on the cheap to go with my Kindle though so I can have access to my books via Evo when and where I want.

    160+ gigs here too, so no music on mine - plus the line out on my evo is unreliable at best.

    I have a 32g touch and i cant seem to find a better solution for my podcasts. i have tried doubletwist but im not a fan for getting and syncing podcasts. also i like being able to leave my touch in the windshield mount when i get in and out of my truck. i tried it with the evo but having the power and audio jack on opposite sides was not working for me.
    maybe if i get a HU that supports bluetooth, then a sandbag mount might work for gps functions and streaming music.
    i do sync my movies to my evo. 4.3 and kickstand ftw.

    If you guys have 4g just use gmote and stream off your computer. No worries for sd card space anymore. The ipod touches overlap so much between the two devices especially now they even came out with a phone hardware addon, these devices are so replacable with each other. Like I always say tho, if you are rich enough just get them all lol.

    C'mon man! Spill the beans lol! :)

    I do! I have over 40,000 songs in my iTunes library (its really closing in on 45,000) so I really do prefer my own mixes and smart playlists over Pandora.

    Semi audiophile here. I use active studio monitors as my desktop speakers Yamaha HS80M | Sweetwater.com Looking to replace them with some Dynaudio's soon.

    And for my Headphones around the house, I use Sennheiser's HD 650's. Amazon.com: Sennheiser HD650 Open-Air Dynamic Audiophile Headphone: Electronics And you can DEFINITELY hear the difference in sound quality from bitrate to bitrate (128, 192, 256, 320, etc). I actually import most of my music into iTunes as Apple Lossless (ALAC). I also try to get most of my music as FLAC as well.

    I usually use my 120gb iPod classic for playing music but sometimes I don't want to carry two devices so I keep about 8 gigs of music on my EVO. The sound quality isn't better than the iPod's but its not too bad even when using my HD 650's. So to be honest, my EVO won't replace my iPod unless they come out with 120gb sdcards that work with the EVO reliably.

    I use audiotchnica ath900 at home and thats exactly the conclusion. The difference is there but unless you are looking for it and want to wear big giant head phones all day it isnt that obvious... Im more of a bass fan, cant stand true studio monitors lol, sound so flat.

    I LOVE the flat sound but I I turn up the high end on the back of the monitors sometimes.
