Is now not the time to buy a 30GB iPod photo b/c of sound distortions?

I finally made up my mind to get a 30GB iPod photo and then guess what I read?



The photo models have sound distortion when listening to moderately-high pitched notes not surrounded by any other type of music, like piano playing. I have some songs where this would be a potential problem.



Then I read that this happens because Apple reengineered the headphone jack to work as a video out jack as well.



Does anyone know if Apple has fixed this problem or if they have addressed it? I don't want to spend $320 on an iPod with distorted sound. \

    I have a 60GB iPod photo - can you post the link? If I know what to listen for, I can try it out.

    Oh, I don't have one yet. I was just asking since I'm about to buy one. If you look at sites like iPodlounge, you'll see posts about this.
