Conecting a Ipod to a Music Fidelity Dac?
 
I am wondering, as an expirament. How do you connect a IPod to a Music Fidelity Dac. The headphone output on a ipod is analog, so is it impossible to conect it to a dac? Or is there some kind of connector you can use on the bottom output of a ipod ( the one you use to connect to your pc) that adapts it to the digital RCA input of a dac?

Wadia just released their iPod transport, it's only $379 and I believe currently shipping from Music Direct.

Currently it is the only device to output a true digital feed from the iPod without reworking the unit, and was the most significant product of the year @ CES this year (to me and many others....)

Thanks, I'll look in to it. I just hooked it up to the video input on my pre and it works. I dont think my freinds would notice a difference, and thats all I'd use it for, when people were over. $400 to hook it up to my Dac might be overkill? I'll need to give it some thought. I'm a little bumed right now, I got out bid by $2.00 on a pair of 10' 8TC bi-wired Kimber on ebay. Thnaks though.

Actually, if you think about it, for the $379 if you rip your files as lossless or WAV or AIFF, you'll have a super simple to use music server with a great DAC and lossless digital feed, that's a steal!

kenny, I read about that Wadia unit. I received an e-mail from musicdirect. It looks really good. Its amazing, who woulda thought that super high end companies like Krell and Wadia would jump on board.

But, like Dan said at the Krell show, 125 million I-pods have been sold, so why not try to tap into that market and get them interested into the high end.

Hi, Kenny.
I certainly agree with you. Your suggestion is really helpful for me.
Thanks a lot for sharing this nice thought.
