It all depends...

"THE PC" can mean a lot. "THE TOUCH" can mean a lot either. There are at least a hundred million variants.

And then you can add mobile iOS devices, Android devices, OSX systems, Linux systems, SD players, you-name-it and an endless number of SW players and setups to the list.

They'll all sound different.

And all that because there is no DAC resp. audio interface which gets the job done right.

Yes, I agree. To clarify, I was saying that my PC front end sounds much better than my SBT front end.
This is not to say all PC setups would sound better.

My comments are not a critiscism of your work, because all your software mods make a big improvement over the sound of the stock SBT.

Soundcheck, this is interesting. This might not be the proper place to discuss this, may be better to start a new thread. What I am interested to learn from you is how your set up the iPad to stream content from a hdd and control ( I assume that means no more remote control?). And instead of an iPad, is it possible to use an iPod touch instead of iPad? That would be lower cost.

Default touch aperture

The screen size is 95mm x 55mm, located centrally (horizontally) in a 149mm case. It is 14mm from the top and 38 mm from the bottom. If installing the whole you need to allow 75mm depth.

Ian

Just what I was thinking too! rather interesting stuff

Is it basically the ipeng add on, so one can listen to ones NAS music on the touch or ipad rather than use it just as a remote.
Instead of sound from touch/ipad into headphones (from NAS via ipeng), into the stereo in a good signal transfer way...

Cheers :-)

Yep.

It's the iPeng add-on. You stream from your server.

You could also use the Pure i-20 dock for the iPod/iPhone/iPad.
You'll get SPDIF at 48khz max. (I ran my reclocker afterwards)
I tested it. It's actually quite nice. The advatange is that it also
loads your device.

The iPod/iPhone won't allow USB out. That's a limitation.

I think all this is also really a great way to recycle your outdated iDevices.

Cheers for the usb info about the ipod touch.

So, your using your ipadipeng usb into your audio gd to get digital coax out, instead of SBtouch (TT4.0 ;-)) digi coax out, and the audio gd set up sounds nicer :-)

Interesting, can't quite get my head round why at the moment, but guessing the audio gd converts better than the SBtouch, simpler software running the stuff maybe... battery powered ipad...

Anyway, guess now the audio gd and ipad are fun to play with and give better results, the extra work of SBtouch and TT4 is out the window, , quite understandable though. I was guessing that the priority settings and the such like would have been included in TT4.0, and was rather looking forward to your nice easy to follow instructions as to what they do and how best to change them for what results. If TT4.0 does get close, count me in :-)


Back to the ipad/pod thing, just a thought, would one be able to leave the ipeng add on ipad/pod, for example behind the sofa, like I have my SBtouch, not visible, and use another ipodtouch as a remote?

(recycle! maybe I'm a bit behind, just been given a Pentium D that is far superior to my existing pc :-o )

Cheers!
:-)
