Yes, there is a line-out hidden in the "dock connector" at the bottom of
all ipods (and a line-in on most ipods as well). There are many
adapters available to give you access to the line-out - e.g. the widely
available "Pocket Dock", or custom cables such as the ones at
http://www.audiolineout.com/

However, on the video ipod (as opposed to earlier ipods), there doesn't
appear to be (according to posts in the forums at
http://www.head-fi.org) any quality difference between using the
line-out or using the headphone out with the Rockbox volume set ot 0dB
(line-out level). Of course, your opinion may differ.

Dave.
