I read here that somebody had returned their IPOD and gone back to a MD. I got a bit worried so tried an IPOD from somebody at work - an MP3 sounded poor however a CD ripped track sounded ok - clearer than an MD but the bass was not as good as my MD. He could have had poor EQ settings, I couldn't experiment as it wasn't mine. Has anybody any experience of going from MD to MP3. I was really after an IPOD but after hearing it against my MD I'm not too sure.
