“The Griffin Dock does not have a built in amplifier and if you’ve been following the thread, the line out signal is exactly the same as the headphone jack signal… but don’t worry, it doesn’t matter, the sound quality is fantastic.”
You keep repeating that, but the Sansa Rep keeps telling you otherwise - as well as the specs that have been shown for the sound chip. I guess it’s up to the reader to decide which source is more credible.

PL, I believe you are misinformed.
I think all you have to do is plug into the output of the headphone jack at full volume and then the output of the Griffin dock to discover that they are the same volume.
One would assume that if there was amplification in the Griffin dock, the dock would be louder than the headphone out.
What sansafix said was that the line out of the Fuze is the same as 100% volume out of the headphone jack.
What I’m telling you is that the line out of the Griffin dock is the same volume as 100% volume out of the headphone jack.
If you have information to the contrary regarding the Griffin dock, please don’t keep it to youself, quote it here so that we all might benefit from it. :)
I’m not disputing that the Griffin Dock has no built in amp - I’m counting on it. I’m also not disputing the volume level. I’m disputing your assertion in that statement that the “line out signal is exactly the same as the headphone jack signal” when the Sandisk rep has repeatedly asserted that it’s a higher quality signal and separate from the headphone output. That’s what you don’t seem to understand - or outright deny.
Hence why a reader has to make the decision on which source is more credible.
