Just for the heck of it I plugged my PC amplified speakers into my Touch and although the sound was "ok"... it definitly didn't have the "punch" that my other MP3 player OR even my NetBook for that matter. Is the audio output on the Touch, by design, weaker than that of the two other devices mentioned? I am thinking of getting a charger/speaker for my unit but I'm concerned my audio output won't be enough to adequetly fire the speakers. Any input very much welcomed. Thanks Melissa PS: I definitly played around with all the settings on the Touch, including EQ etc.. Clear sound... but with not enough "punch"
