    This last part conflicts with what you're trying to achieve. Audyssey and bass management are done digitally in the AVR. Give it an analog signal, it will re-digitize it.

    Macs have this, but I'm pretty sure the ipod doesn't. The Wadia would be quite pointless if getting digital from an ipod was simple.

    Yes. Marantz are better about making rated power than most. The 6001 refurb for about $80 more gets you a little more amp and Audyssey.
