Wadia 170i alternatives?? Onkyo and others??

Are there any other manufacturers of iPod docks with digital output like the Wadia 170i??? I know there is an Onkyo NS-D1 model but it does not appear to be available in the USA.

In regard to the Onkyo, has anyone seen, heard or purchased one?? Is the voltage adjustable to fit USA requirements or do you need a step-down/up transformer??

I have never seen a used Onkyo on this or any other site in spite of the fact that it is significantly cheaper than the Wadia.


Cambridge just came out with an ipod dock model called the iD100 which outputs digital, lists for $299. (I believe they also make 2 other docks which are analog only).

I'm currently using an Onkyo, without an additional step up transformer and it works great. I've never heard a Wadia so I can't really compare but the Onkyo works without a hitch with both my 2nd gen iTouch and current iPod classic. I've heard there are issues with certain older ipods though. There's a guy on ebay selling these with shipping for a little over $200, shipped same day and reached me in NYC in 5 days. If you want email me and I can look up the seller name for you.
peachtree also makes digital pod docks in their integrated amplifiers. they are also releasing a dac standalone unit but i havn,t read much about it and it is 1000 dollars. and hrt music streamer has a new istreamer dac for ipod use at 199.00.. it isn,t a dock so it doesn,t have all the options and remote control. i am holding off til a company releases a 100 dollar dock with the digital pins access and i can use my vdac with my ipods.
