[ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> I'm John Falcone, senior editor at CNET.com. And this is the Wadia 170 iTransport. We've seen plenty of iPod docks in the past several years, but all of them use the iPod's built in digital to analog converter. That means anyone with an expensive AV receiver or preamp processor isn't necessarily getting the best audio quality from the music on their iPod. That's where the Wadia 170 iTransport comes in. This high-end iPod dock is the first on that accesses the audio on the iPod in its raw digital form. Wadia simply outputs the raw digital audio data to an outboard audio component, so audiophiles who've spent thousands of dollars on their receivers, processors, and speakers get to maximize those investments, rather than rely on the iPods internal D to A converter. The 170 iTransport has the look and feel of a high-end component, and it also supports video output for some iPod models. The 170 iTransport is intended for persnickety audiophiles who want the highest quality sound, and by that measure, it delivers the goods. It's recommended for seriously discriminating listeners who appreciate the difference between uncompressed and loss E digital files [phonetic], and those who have high-end equipment that will make the best use of the 170 iTransport's all-digital output. I'm John Falcone for CNET, and this is the Wadia 170 iTransport. ^M00:01:34 [ Music ]
