Why convert?  Just get the FLAC player and let it do the work, unless you need to save space.

Because I will use an iPod classic with a PHA-1 in the future, and can't install a flac player there I guess. I have it rockboxed, but rockbox doesn't talk with the PHA-1, afaik. So need to go back to original fw.

if you have an ipod touch or iphone there are many flac playing apps. I use flacplayer app.

Ok, thanks...

But if I understand correctly the iPod will resample anything above 48khz/16bit to 48khz/16bit right?

So it has no use, imho, to feed flac players anything above that, so my guess is that i might as well resample any flacs that have higher frequencies and bit rates to appropriate alacs.

While i am at it anyway.

So i can fill my classic (with future PHA-1) and touch (with E01 or iBasso D-0) with the same files.

I guess.......

Sorry I couldn't find a clear answer from this thread....

 

Does the Sony PHA work as an external DAC/AMP for the iPod Classic?

Yes.

Cool, thanks.

 

The PHA 1 has come down in price so I might take the plunge.

Does this include the ipod Classic? I ask because it's not IOS.

 

Also, is this Apogee interface compatible with the Classic?

Sorry to keep asking, but there aren't many choices out there, and I don't want to make a mistake.

 

Thanks.
