ALO Fidelity iMOD Auricap Docking Stations - Page 3

post #31 of 64
OK here goes stupid question:

I've got the Imod, Imod dock cables and two portable amps. that said, if I get the Auricap dock what else do I need?? Mini-mini to go from dock to amp?? Any other cabling?? Sorry, folks, just can't picture how this all fits together. Help would be appreciated.

You would need either a mini to mini cable and or a RCA to RCA cable, to connect to an amp.(To be more specific you can use a mini to mini for an amp with a mini input or a RCA to RCA for an amp with a RCA input)

It will but, if you don't have a iMod'ed iPod, you can get an ALO Fidelity Docking station without the caps. As seen here ALOaudio - Audio Line Out: Interconnect cables and portable line out docks for iPod

is there any difference in the sound?
post #40 of 64
Quality of sound from the iMod lowest to highest is the standard Black Gate cable enabled Dock, the wood Auricap Dock, and then the Wood VCap Dock. This latest Vcap doc with the highest Vcap I am not sure if this one used the same Vcaps as the one I was loaned or not. There was a slight increase in transparency and detail with the Vcap over the Auricap dock but not significant enough to me for the price. There is a significant increase in quality over the Black Gate Docking cable to the Auricap dock in my opinion. My cable is the Super Cotton Dock.

Of course the sound out of the standard Fidelity dock for a standard iPod I could not tell you if the better wiring makes a difference since I have not heard this combination to compare.

But I have had all three of the iMod docks to compare. This is the one that I have, the Auricap dock:

fault151,

an iMod dock will work with a regular iPod. However you will now have two caps in the line out signal. That could lead to a noticed degridation in SQ.
