Wadia i171


Recommended Posts

I am using the Wadia i170 in my office system. Does anyone know if Wadia has released the i171, and, if so, whether the i171 is an upgrade over the i170? Thanks.

Here are a few comments regarding the upgrades on the 171i

 

 

"Wadia’s 171iTransport builds on the award winning success of its previous 170iTransport model with “Works with iPhone” compatibility, as well as overall higher performance thanks to improved power supply components and step-up audiophile grade connectors that easily couple to a DAC, A/V receiver or other audio component with a D/A converter.

High-resolution video signals are also passed cleanly through the dock’s component video connections. The cast aluminum chassis reduces unwanted resonance through its vibration absorbing isolation cones. A new power supply indicator is included as well.

A new feature-rich infrared remote control allows convenient navigation through Playlists and Albums. The 171iTransport will recharge either an iPhone or iPod when either device is docked to the iTransport."

 

I don't think it is available yet.
