iPod to USB Mini LOD?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know where to buy or if it is possible to make a short iPod to USB mini cable for an iPod/mobile headphones amp setup?

Check the Fiio site, they sell a nice iPod dock/USB connector.

So does ALO Audio.

Just checked both site. Neither company makes an iPod to USB mini cable :(

Email ALO and ask them to make you one.  I have one made by them for my iPod (LOD out) > Solo (USB in).

Okay.  Here you go: http://aloaudio.com/algorhythm-solo-rx-mk2-amp-alo-audio-interconnects-combo-package-black.html

 

You'll see it as part of the way to order the Solo.  I'm sure they will sell you an LOD/USB cable.

Im using a Leckerton Audio UHA-3 headphones amp. It has an 1/8in and USB mini plug for inputs. I don't have enough space between the 1/8in input and the 1/8in headphones out to run my WhipLash LOD and my recabled Grado S80's. So I was hoping I could run an iPod plug to a USB mini LOD to avoid this spacing issue.

I was looking at pictures of the uha-3 and the USB input is on the back.  So, you'd have the LOD coming from the iPod to the USB in on the back of the uha-3.  On the front all you would have is the plug out for your phones.  Am I missing something here?

Nope, that is correct. I would have the USB facing the same direction as the bottom plug on the iPod so it could be a short LOD cable. I hope I explained that well enough biggrin.gif So as you can see on the front, it has an 1/8in input, 1/8in output and the volume. The current LOD and headphones plugs are too large to plug in at the same time because my current LOD is an iPod to 1/8in plug.

You did!  Got it.  I missed the LOD > mini part.  Now I understand.  Any builder should be able to help you with your LOD > USB.  Ken at ALO did for me.
