And if it would connect my ipod, the clas would stump it's sound imo (same song from itunes on my imac using the Intruder's dac does not sound as good as the ipod/clas to me) . I found that running Audirvana made it even worse, is that not wierd for an expencive program? However for me it was a bonus having a dac to go with my computer, and the Intruder has a sweet amp section to my ears, the best I have had the pleasure to own. (it's a thrilling sort of pain to my bank account having to buy everything I would like to try living in Norway, but I feel I'm getting close to finding my "sound" in this jungle of sweetness.) Now I'm anxious to get my hands on the lcd's that I just ordered to see what the Intruder can do.
