    I have a "Creative Zen M 60gb" player at the moment. I was looking at up grading to a Ipod Classic.

    Has anyone got any views on the Audio quality difference ??

    I have changed my headphones to "Sound Magic 10" which sound great.

    Also a friend of mine has a Grafite Grey classic which I really like the colour, but it seems that its only Black or White that are th options now. Don't surpose any one knows if I can get a Grey one

    Nope. Black or Silver are the current model choices.

    Uk ipod classic great for storage room. however has the stupid european volume lock, which means that you will have to use an external amp, to drive any decent headphones.

    I am using a Fiio E11 with a LOD to good results, will even drive mu Senn HD600's, which was a pleasant surprise.

    But do have advantage that digital feed can be taken out to feed a decent DAC for use in home system.

    So mixed blessings...

    Cheers Paul

    To add, I've got a black classic, it looks more really dark grey to me.
