Portable A/D (not D/A) converters for iDevices?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello, can anyone name some brands that sell portable analog-to-digital converters that you can plug into iDevices and bypass the internal one?

I don't believe one exists.Try using a CCK and download the corresponding application from Cydia. You can then try using it with a DAC that has a battery, such as the E7 or UHA-4.

the internal analog to digital  converter??  What/where is that?
 

If you want to use an ADC then it should work on any device anywhere that has an analog output.  Idevices have a headphone-out and an optional line out, both which are analog so you just plug it in there...

I assume iDevices have their own ADC's because how else would you record your voice (obviously your voice is analog) and then have it be stored on your iPhone (or whatever) as a digital file? I thought that (for example) if you were having a video chat with someone that the mic would pick up the analog sound that is your voice and then your device's A/D converter would store it on your device digitally and then your device would finally send it to the device that the person you are talking to is using where their device's DAC would convert it back to analog sound and your voice would be played out of their device's speakers. Am I wrong? Does it work differently then that?

I think you made a sound deduction. Good thinking.

Of course, for both cases mentioned, the AD convertor would be pretty low quality because it needs to be streamed wirelessly.
