New Wadia 171i iPod Dock...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Wadia has an update coming out for their wadia iPod dock.  The existing wadia dock is one of the few that outputs pure digital for external DACs.  Here's the info they sent me about their new version of the dock:
 

Thank you for your interest in the Wadia iPod transports.

The 171i will have the following features above the 170i:
•   Better internal power supply.
•   Audiophile grade connector for the coax digital output.
•   TOSLINK optical output.
•   Metal remote with menu controls for the iPod/iPhone.
•   Higher grade circuit board.
•   Better clock for lower jitter.
•   Licensed for iPhone.
•   Power indicator light.

 

The 171i will not be able to display the menus and the album art with the video out.

 

The 171 should be available starting in September and will retail for $599.  The 170i will continue to be made.

 

Please feel free to contact Wadia if you have any other questions or comments.

 

Thank you,

Not sure it is worth the extra 200 plus over the 170i.

I'm using an i170 now.  Maybe I'll buy a new one and then sell my older one for cheap.  Otherwise, yeah, is it really worth $200 more?

Hello, 

 

Regarding the Wadia 171i or a future product from Wadia:

 

- In order to use a digital transport with a high end audiophile DAC such as from EMM Labs and DCS, it should have a clock in (to synchronize and minimize jitter) such as the Logitec Transporter has.  Will Wadia offer a version with world clock input? 

 

- Is it possible to feed the Wadia 171i with 24/96 digital input and ouput 24/96? 

 

- Can I use a better software in the Ipad, such as Amarra, to run 24/96 music, improving the itunes performance, and output this improved source to the Wadia 171i? 

 

Thanks,

 

Vicente
