IPOD LINE OUT REVIEWS - Page 3

post #31 of 45
Well the cotton dock came - and extremely quickly. Very impressed with ALO's service.

It's a great cable, really improves things over the cheap mini-to-mini I used before, but plugging the Corda straight into my laptop is still significantly better than using the iPod. I was hoping this would be enough, but it looks like I'll need an iMod...

LFF,

Should the links on the first post, and all the rest, shoot one over to ALO's site here
http://www.aloaudio.com/

instead of this site
http://www.audiolineout.com/

Has anyone done a detailed comparison between the ALO Cotton Dock and the Cotton Dock offered by APureSound? I'd be really interested to see the results. -CK

I guess no one has had a chance to compare.

ALO's cotton dock is just 20awg silver wire insulated with cotton whereas apuresound uses silver plated copper insulated with kapton and teflon.

the cotton coating from apuresound is just for aesthetics, since the wire they use is already insulated, insulating again defeats the purpose of anything SQ wise.......

from apuresound website:

"The cable consists of very high grade silver plated copper wire (75% silver, 25% copper) covered in 2 thin layers
of Kapton to protect from oxidation (humidity and air) then in a thicker layer of Teflon to help insulate the wire
and protect the wire from damage"


so basically youre asking what sounds better, silver wire or silver plated copper wire..............which is personal preference

Thanks for the response, but are you speaking from experience? Apuresound is very respected on these forums, and I doubt he would add cotton just for looks. Have you heard his lineout docks? I wanted the opinion of those who might have heard both. Thanks, CK

WOW. I had no idea this thread was still alive.

CK - I have not had a chance to compare them but I know Ken from ALO makes some great docks with some awesome sound.

Shoot Ken an email and I'm sure he'll be more than happy to help you.

Have you tried Qables Silver LOD cable yet?

There are many good cables out there. Silver will always be my preference!!

SACD-Man, you really need to PM or email Jude about becoming a Member of the trade. You can't just use this forum to advertise your products. There are rules regarding this.

I think this thread should include all brands of LODs for comparison. We still don't have Qables, APureSound, Turbo or many of the other DIYs represented.

Sorry, I may have Stole you Thunder on Qables.

The Qable Silver Cab iPod Dock Out to Mini;
First few hours was OK nothing special AKA "all cables sounds the same ", then

the First 12 to 24 Hours is Terrible , Harsh H.Freq, for Female Vocals, all the emotions Gone. in-coherent sound stage, They use to say use Silver cable on tube Amps to Speed up the Sound. Just Like Silver interconnects of old (I have Kimber KCAG) they sounded Fast ,Thin & Brittle and then,

After 48 hours it is Magic. The higher resolution and the All the Missing/vailed sound of the cheaper Copper cable has lifted. this is why i Pick a Silver cable for the High Resolution. It also means all the Average Music. Low Bit Rates are terrible as they should be.

I think it is a must, to Burn-in for 48 hours before listen.

Qables recommends 40 - 100 hours. The Silvercab pro is a serious....cable
