Any real noticeable Difference with LOD vs 3.5mm with Ipod4?
Gear mentioned in this thread:
If you care about sound quality, than in absolute term, yes! When connecting the LOD to either your iphone or ipods, the sound bypasses the internal sound processor and therefore pass out as pure digital signal. Generally, external DAC processes sound quality far better than iphone/ipods
LOL, this old chestnut....again.
A LOD (30 pin to mini) `supposedly` bypasses the amp of the ipod. Giving a better sound due to the weak amp of the general ipod and the greedy nature of many high end phones.
A USB-LOD is needed to bypass the ipods DAC and amp to feed it to a better DAC, but you also need a special Apple certified device to do this such as the:
Venturecraft godap and godapX
V-Moda Vamp and Verza
to name a few.
