    7th Gen (2009) iPod Classic 160 SQ

    Quote: Yes, sorry I know one does'nt exist . I was refering to a new cable/connection (maybe integrated w/ the DAC/amp) that would have to be engineered from the ground up by R & D at Wadia. (Yup, that woud cost us. As I mentioned, it might not be cost effective, so no-one has gone this...

    What's that old saying about "blaming the messenger for the message". It's not the playback that's flawed, it's only playing back what's actually on the recording. The truth is most popular music recordings don't have a lot of upper frequency liquidity, most players are intentionally designed to...

    Quote: Originally Posted by Sherwood They have produced a number of good DACs, sure, but the 170i is not a DAC. There are, hypothetically, ways to make one digital transport better than another, but the difference is extremely subtle at best. So, you're completely positive the...

    Which lossless codec uses least resources on iPod?

    I would think that the processing resources of Ipods are fairly basic as compared to a PC due to the limited amount of RAM that can be dedicated to any particular function on these portable devices(I could be completely wrong about this, but it seems logical to me). I think that each codec must...

    Korg MR-1: Can this be used as a portable player?

    In a posting quite a few pages back someone mentioned they were'nt having success at recording a full SACD & I'm not sure if anyone passed on this information so here goes. The Korg MR1 can only record so many minutes according to how much free HDD space is available at the time of the...

    Can someone explain to me what a troll is & it's intended purpose?

    Honestly, the only reason I asked is that people seem to ask(or state) if something seems to be a "troll" to them . I consider most of what I read as nothing more than opinions. I may agree or disagree,but I don't see where anything warrants a "Is this a troll?". Unless you are missing some...

    Can someone explain to me what a troll is & it's intended purpose?

    I guess I've always been curious about this from the time I started visiting forums. It appears some of us get pretty upset if they suspect one. My other question is why should someone even pay that much attention to something they consider nonsensical or ficticious ? To my knowledge the "Truth...

    Lossless Question?

    When it comes to hearing differences between lossy & lossless files I don't know how many people take into consideration that a lot of recordings may not have much "appearent" resolution to warrant using more musical playback information. In other words how much ambient information is available...

    So, how far away are we from seeing 64g CF cards that are reasonably priced?

    Well, I was able to upgrade my Korg to an 80g Hdd (74.5g capacity after the Korg formatted the drive) so there is no great rush for me to go the CF route for now. SSD looks pretty interesting also & if is compatible w/ these players it looks like it might be an even easier conversion than CF. Oh...

    Line out signals on IpodsIphones.. do any of them get it right?

    The thing you have to remember is that the amount of Ipod/Iphone users who are as concerned (or better yet knowledgeable enough to know) about what would make these better audio players isn't even a blip on the Apple radar screen. How many "non-audio nut" people do you know who think...

    LOD draining iPod battery?

    Once again, properly designed LODs are passive. "Made for Ipod"(or at least most "made for Ipod")LODs don't have the correct pin "shorted" that will allow the Ipod to "sleep" the way it will normally w/ no connection to this port. I don't necessarily see that there is anything wrong w/ the Ipod...

    LOD draining iPod battery?

    The funny thing(well actually not so funny),about these players is that they don't have actual "ON/Off" butttons (Ipods,Zunes,etc...) & if you have'nt pressed the correct sequence of buttons to truely turn them off they are constantly in standby! I'm more inclined to think this is the case.
