1. I know, this is borderline break one of the rules of the subforum which I said not to break just above, but heres what I'd like to see. Many of us on Head-Fi are cable skeptics, how can a cable make THAT much of a difference? Although I am not one of these people, there are undoubtedly a lot of them-and as skeptics, it is highly unlikely they will shell out the dough for an ALO cable just to see. So it is my suggestion that you offer a low-end line, focused on bang for the buck. This way, nonbelievers and cheap-o's can hear the difference themselves, and as upgraditis hits they will hopefully move up the ALO cable chain.
Good point, but I am not motivated to make or design products to deal with skeptics. Moreover, because I am a very small operation I can not really fit in what your calling a "low line" product. Its not a good business model for me, besides I am all about making the best sounding cable I can make using the best material I can find. There are much larger companies that are going to kill me on making mid-fi stuff.
|2. I see that ALO is big on the Ipod dock market, but where are the docks for the ZVM and Zune (does zune have line out via dock??)?
again I am pretty busy and full up with a ipod cable and and other home IC's, I am hoping to get to other players in the future though.
I believe the Zune has its line out signal locked unless you use a bunch of MS items (zune docking base, powered into the wall, and Zune remote) with the device. If any one of these things is not present, no line out signal. Now I am not saying that there is not a work around but I don't have the time to figure it out.
|ALO: If you deem this thread is inappropriate/you don't want it please feel free to delete. If so, I apologize Ken.
again, no really thanks for the post.
