The new 170 iTransport from Wadia Digital turns your iPod into an audiophile music server! The iTransport is the world’s first iPod dock to retrieve a direct digital signal from an iPod. As a result, the audio signal remains pure and unadulterated, providing better than CD-quality resolution from full-resolution file formats such as .WAV and Apple Lossless (.m4a).
The iTransport turns any currently available iPod player into a high-end media server by providing a bit-perfect digital audio output to an audio/video system, bypassing the player’s internal digital-to-analog conversion (DAC) and analog output stage. Subsequently, the audio signal remains clean and unadulterated throughout the path, outputting a “bit-perfect” digital stream. The iTransport is compatible with:
All Current iPods
All iPod Nano Models
The iPod Classic Models
iPod Video Generation 5 (Limited Functionality)
Also the New iPod Touch/iPhone Models
Along with turning an iPod into a high-performance audio server, iTransport is one of the first docks to access video content stored on currently available iPods. Similar to the audio section, the video signal is made available via high performance component outputs that provide up to DVD-quality video.
The Wadia 170 iTransport measures 2” x 8” x 8” (H/W/D), making it an easy addition to most racks and entertainment centers. Wadia incorporates a bit-perfect S/PDIF digital output and high-resolution component digital video output, as well as analog audio and video outputs for easy connection with most audio/video systems. Your iPod will be charged while in the dock and the iTransport comes complete with a remote to control all iPod functions.
