    Philips Philips DCP850/37 (w/iPod Dock) Get it in person!

    Interesting effect with LONG file

    I have a 4-hour DJ set encoded in 256K MP3. It's the longest file I have come across so far. Seeking on the iPod is next to starts to skip and actually locks up. However... I converted it to 128K AAC, and it seeks just fine. A *tiny* bit laggy, but no skipping. What do you...
