About this issue.i thought that using piccollino's as an lod would be a great cable because about what i heard the piccollinos are excellent detail cable ( which i like) but when i ask a local audio guru in my country he says that its an overkill since its plugged to iPod.any opinion about this?
Not familiar with the Piccolino, but I use my custom built LOD everyday to connect iPod to amp. Certainly worthwhile. My understanding is that primary benefit is to bypass the amp circuit in your iPod, replacing it with your (better quality) amp.
Of course you're still relying on the iPod DAC so there is still room for improvement in your portable set up. There is no end of ways to spend money, sigh.
