Anyone interested in getting high quality output from their iPod, to use as a digital source will probably be interested in this

Ummmm, no. That's a ridiculous waste of money. You can get a dedicated line output jack by just popping your iPod into this Apple dock. That'll improve your sound probably just as much as this product claims to.

iPod Nano dock $29 + home-made interconnect (3.5mm stereo miniplug to L/R RCA) ~$20 = good enough for me.

I'm w/ Peter. OMG, what a complete waste of money. Your best bet is the dock. C'mon, it's compressed audio...

I listen to my iTunes on my Mac Mini connected via USB to my Pio 45TX. That sounds great and I didn't have to buy anything esoteric. Sounds even better when I use my tube amp.

It simplifies and improves the analog output stage. It isn't meant for those playing compressed files, rather lossless. I heard it at Rocky Mountain Audiofest, have any of you? It's output stage sounded much better than stock and as good as a nice cd player.

Did you hear itcompared to a standard iPod playing uncompressed music connected via a dock or other cable that takes advantage of the line-out?

MA too? Does that mean they've jumped the shark?

There's plenty of shark hopping going on where the iPod is concerned... :P
