Wadia 171i Transport in excellent condition. You will receive: 171i transport, power supply, A/C power cord, IR remote control, iPhone adapter insert, iPod adapter inserts, manual and box. From a Google search: The original 170iTransport had some flaws. For example, stereophile measured a relatively high level of jitter, the remote control sucked (it was like a plastic stick of gum), the external power supply was just an inexpensive wall-wart (is that the right phrase?), and the S/PDIF connector was cheap aluminum. Yet, with these flaws, it still played great sounding music. The new 171i addresses the above weaknesses, and the end result is a better sounding iTransport. The new 171 seems to be a bit clearer, precise, and more detailed. The dynamics seem wider and deeper, and everything is a bit better. Overall, it is hard to quantify with objective terms, but I am very happy with the sound. The remote is a much nicer metal remote with more features. The iPod seems more secure/solid in the dock, the gold plated S/PDIF connector is better, the blue light on the front is a nice touch, the better clocking and reduced jitter seems to work, and it is still a great music server. The Wadia 171i Transport/iPod has been the best music device I have ever owned. Because of it I have been on a CD buying spree, upgraded my DAC, and upgraded the digital IC. All of these changes, along with IC, speaker, and power cord upgrades over the past year, have made my iPod an absolutely fabulous, first-rate music source. I cannot give enough praise to this device, and if anybody is on the fence about buying a Wadia/iPod I have to say do it.
