240gb iPod, Algorhythm Solo, coax into Hugo, Alpha Dogs...

 

I just saw this set-up.   Could someone explain me what is the advantage of using an Algorhythm Solo instead of just a CCK between the iPod and a DAC ?  

 

don't it make things more complicated ? does it improve SQ a lot ?

CCK doesn't work with iPod Classic.

Finally!just bought the Apple cck and it works great with my mdac playing 24/96 which the the mdac max,s out at over usb,the thing is why does the Onkyo HF player upsample the 16/44 bit tracks to 24/88 and what difference will this make to SQ?

Ive also had it hooked up to a fiio e7 and it works a treat with usb charge on or off!

Connected to the Stoner Acoustics UD110v2 DAC it needs a unpowered hub and distorts pretty bad.

I have a iFi Nano iDSD DAC on order which will be my main DAC on the go with my android and iphone.:gs1000smile:

With the new iPhone/iPAD is there still a "SQ" advantage to use Algorhythm Solo instead of just a CCK to connect the iDEVICE to an external DAC ?

 

This is one more "brick" to carry !  so... why do people still buy the Algorhythm Solo ? Is the sound better ?

 

thanks

I use an Algorhythm -R with my iPod Classic, but i use it as a DAC to feed a Conti V3.   Love that combo - very dynamic, with excellent transient response.   

 

However, I wouldnt use an Algorhythm as a data converter just to feed another DAC.   I doubt if that difference in audio quality would be any kind of meaningful, atleast to me.
