The Apple iPod. Part genius, part musical nightmare.
Thereâ€™s no denying the fact that the iPod has been the â€˜audio productâ€™ of the 21st century and as a piece of product design itâ€™s brilliant (like all things Apple)
But (and itâ€™s a big but !) it sounds bloody awful.
So, in step Wadia. Who, with Appleâ€™s blessing managed to circumvent the awful iPod audio circuits and get hold of the digital data directly which can then be passed on to a high quality DAC (like the one in the superb Wadia 381i , the phenomenal Wadia 151 or the brilliant new Rega DAC)
The new 171i Transport is Wadiaâ€™s latest and best iPod/iPad/iPhone dock, which obviously makes it the best dock on the planet. Enough said.
