Re: Bowers & Wilkins Launches iPodŽ Speaker System: Zeppelin
Ideally, if the iPod provided a digital-audio output via it's connector, this could be a true High-end product. Sadly, the limiting factor will still be the d/a and analog line-out of the iPod device, regardless of what wizardry the new external amplifer can provide. In fact, when I see "DSP" advertized it makes me shiver knowing that the music will then be forced through another a/d/a cycle after leaving the iPod.
Apple, would it be too much to ask to provide a digital-audio output on the iPod??? Then those of us capturing our music in apple-lossless could enjoy true high-end audio from our portable iPod music systems.
p.s. I do plan to audition this new entry into the iPod boom-box genre as soon as it's available. hopefully it won't disappoint, despite the inherent design flaw (lack of digital audio out) in the iPod.
