iAudio 6 little brother of X5?
Hey everybody! I am enjoying the new pictures of the iAudio 6 on the mpnavi website.
I was thinking, the iAudio 6 seems to be the little brother of the X5? What are the differences between the players?
* Most Definately: SIZE
*The Storage/harddrive technology
*The X5 has a dock with line-out, ac power, and usb port.
* Maybe: SQ Level? Power Requirements?
* Maybe: The iAudio 6 doesn't have background Wallpaper change capability?
I hope the iAudio 6 includes a Clock feature, with alarms, and a user setable radio tuner and line-in automatic recording feature (like the X5 and A2 (?) ) then it would make it hard for me to refuse. The specs posted have not stated these features. On the pics on the mpnavi website, the box cover for the iAudio 6 illustrates FM Tuner Recording.
Well despite what everybody is saying (flash memory rules, ugly touch pad controls, only 4GB capacity, too big) I think this might be a solid player (although I would have liked more storage capacity. ) The recent pictures on Dapreview show it smaller length wise to the Nano, but it is significantly Chunkier. I wonder how it matches physically to the X5???
