The Apple diyMod: My Take on the Famous iMod [56k killer] Featuring 3G, 4G, 5G and nano 1G! - Page 207

post #3091 of 3095

Hello; 

 

       I have read the post and looked at DIYMODS on EBAY. I looked at the RED WINE IMOD. What makes this better than just getting the SONY PHA 1A, which is a amplifier and DAC portable. This will bypass the whole APPLE set up. I was wondering am I missing something. I was thinking about getting a IPOD CLASSIC and just adding the Sony PHA 1A.

I'm looking into this as well and I could be wrong but going from an iPod to a Sony PHA-1A isn't going to change much because you'd still be going through the, so called, less desirable iPod output circuits(caps/coils) into the Sony and not straight from the iPod DAC.

Hmmmm...wo so what is the point of using the SONY PHA 1A IF IT ISN'T BYPASSING THE IPOD DAC? I need to do more research on that thanks...If someone has a answer please give it. Thanks for your responce.

Like I said, I could be wrong, but from what I've read it's not the iPod DAC that's the limiting feature but the Output circuit. People are bypassing that in order to get better sound directly from the iPod DAC.
