Default iPod vs Thumbdrive

What do you guys use,
I always used my 80 gig iPod but I didn't have it on hand so I threw some songs on a thumb drive and there's a noticeable difference in sq with the thumb drive, anyone else notice this? I think I may be using a t/d from now on.

i use my iPod solely for the navigation on my 9883, no USB in. Does the eq set on the iPod effect head unit or is it standard flat?

Maybe its quality of the songs also.

It's set on flat and no volume control,
I even took songs that I have on my iPod and there's a good difference in sound

Well hell. Lol. I do notice a substantial difference between iPod and CD, but of course CD is much higher rate.

thumb drive, seems like some decks you cant really navigate the ipod much, you have to unplug the ipod, change the song and plug it back in.

For those with problems running an external device, you probably need a line driver to up the voltage on the signal. I use this:

Amazon.com: Le Pan TC 970 9.7-Inch Multi-Touch LCD Google Android Tablet PC: Computers Accessories

as my headunit, and I have a Pioneer CD player for radio and...well...CDs if anyone has any. Both are run through a Clarion EQ for source selection, but the tablet goes through a 7volt line driver first to match the RCA outs from the Pioneer. Before I put the line driver in the tablet audio sounded horrible.
