Extra Info:

Black Apple iPod Video 5.5 Generation 80 GB Model A1136. Classic Wolfson DAC Generation.
Everything works perfectly. The outer casing is original showing some wear, but overall it is clean and in very good condition, as it was always kept in the case included with the sale. Good battery life. It has been sitting unused for many years, as I have used mobile phones as music players once they got good audio quality.
This 5.5 Generation model has "a 60 percent brighter and more vibrant 2.5-inch color display" than the prior 5th Generation model.

5th Gen iPod classic which has the best DAC of any iPod due to the legendary Scottish made Wolfson WM8758 DAC, (The Wolfson DAC is a unique Digital to Audio converter acclaimed by audiophiles for it's rich bass and top-notch acoustics.)

This is the 5.5th Gen ‘Enhanced’ (hard to spot because it has exactly the same model number as the 5th Gen iPod. (A1136)). The only way to tell the ‘Enhanced’ apart is that it has a ‘Search’ option in the software. (See photo of my screen)

Fantastic audio when paired with a good set of headphones and ALAC or FLAC!!

 

Leather-look case and Apple genuine charging cable are included.

I have the 30gb version of this gen. I was pretty happy when this gen of iPod was claimed to be the best sounding ipod ever due to the Wolfson dac onboard. Can't remember who made the claim but was good enough for me at the time!

 

it now spends its days in the glovebox of my car connected to my sound system, still working years after the computer it was synced to was moved on! 😂
