When I opened my Modern Home Theater email today I saw something I thought I would never see......a Krell IPOD Dock for your audio rack! I guess if you can't beat them, than join them!
Yes they have, however I wouldn't knock the iPod as last year at a meeting of our audio/video society we had a chance to hear the iPod on some very high quality equipment.
The first event was the host playing some music that his son had put on his iPod and it sounded terrible.
Then another member got out his iPod and the sound was terrific indistinguishable from CDs.
He was using Apple lossless as his encoding format
