Sensational performance from your iPad, iPhone and iPod...
Without doubt, the iPod has revolutionised the way we enjoy music on the move, there’s no substitute for its amazing combination of convenience and amazing capacity. But now, for the very first time, your iPod can actually be a true part of your hi-fi system thanks to the Cambridge Audio iD100.
Unlike ordinary iPod docks which at best enhance the iPod’s analogue audio output, the iD100 extracts much purer digital content from your iPod, iPhone or iPad – bypassing the inbuilt analogue conversion circuits. By taking a digital signal, every last drop of detail is fed to an external DAC or AV Receiver where true audiophile quality digital to analogue conversion can take place.
The benefits of this complex technology are instant from the moment you experience the iD100. In short it delivers spine tingling results from your iPhone, iPad and iPod with much greater realism, scale and dynamic range. It’s not just about music either! The iD100 loves your video collection and now you can enjoy portable video content like You Tube, iTunes, iPlayer and much more on your TV.
