    Can the 80Gb iPod output a line level signal from it's headphone socket.

    I have got an amp and speakers in the garage without a dock. When I connected my Sony HD5, Icould select line out, and it sounded great. The iPod doesnt seem to be able to do this, and sounds 'muddy' in comparison.

    No, you will need an adapter which fits onto the computer socket on the bottom of the ipod.

    There is some crazy stuff on there. Surely it can't be worth spending that much on mp3!

    True, but the ipod does do apple lossless, and 80 gigs is a lot of space:D You really can hear a difference through a good connect cable, but then you have to have good cans, and a good amp, and then it's down the path to a lighter wallet. From where there is no return.
