They haven't tried it yet. Also, do I need to buy a device like the Wadia ipod connector to the DAC 7 to hook it up?
3. Linn DS - these are more expensive (Akurate and Klimax) but will connect to the computer via ethernet port.
Anyone with experience with any of these?
Have you looked at the Bel Canto Dac?
