    I have almost given up on the iPad/iphone sound from my home theater. It just lacks too much. The car is fine but that's about it for me.

    There's all sorts of docks available, bit perfect, some with built in dacs some without, at any price level you can think of too.
    A hundred buck dock, may be some improvement but I wouldn't expect miracles. Convert your files to lossless, even apple lossless, only takes a click of the mouse. Play into a decent dac then into your pre. You'll see a stark improvement. Some cheap dacs to look at, Audio-gd, Cambridge, Grant Fidelity tube dac, Musical fidelity, Keces, PS Audio,and the list can go on. Used they range from under 200 to around 400 and would be a big step up over a dock.

    This may be the best way to attempt better quality sound from an ipod.

    Well people I got the Pure i-20 on friday. Simple to hook up and the results were great. I can now hear the vocals more clearly than ever before. The whole overall image has also improved. I have the ipad 3 and the amps maxed out on the gains and am controlling the volume via the preamp which also lets me tweak the highs and lows.
    Now comes the best part all (10 months later);
    which is to sit back an
    :) LISTEN..............

    I really appreciate all the great advice I've received here.

    I thank you, my Polks thank you and my EARS thank you.

    So far so good. Still sounds great if not better. For anyone buying these RTIA7's a word of advice. The more you use them the better they will sound. I just invested in and Alienware X51 to get my pc gaming back on. I bet the games will sound AWESOME PLAYING THRU THE a7's. Well take care people and thanks...
