Then what's the point of having the DAC?
I thought the built in dac would replace the crappy one of Ipod...
Then how does something like the TTVJ slim work? Does the dac section in TTVJ also only usb? If you use LO from your ipod, is the dac section in the loop?

My understanding is you need a license from Apple to access the digital out and bypass the internal cheap DAC. I do not believe RSA has that license.

The dac is meant to be replacing your computer/laptop dac, as far as making it work with any idevices you need to pay a lot of "approval" research money in order for apple to give you thumbs up!
 
In summary no device with DAC will bypass the apple DAC unless they have specified it. The USB LOD is just a bridge to initiate handshack between the two devices. The digitial signal tells the ipod whether to accept or reject the so called handshake.

I had a chance to listen to some Johnny cash on the intruder with the he-6 at the Chicago meet.
The bump in gain from the 71b really made the he6 sing.
I'm not a techie but I think the high gain of the 71b is 11 and the intruder is 21.
It was connected to a MacBook via USB.
Ray didn't reveal many specs but I was very impressed.
Big soundstage, lots of punch, I'm guessing this will be a popular choice.

i think the intruder needs a SOLO if you're using it with apple devices, to bypass the apple dac, since it doesnt have the identification chip

Way lower price than I expected. I hope it's not cutting corners 

 
I wonder how it compares to the Furutech ADL Stride. Definitely watching this
