Wadia's 171iTransport

Wadia’s new 171iTransport digital iPod dock ($599) is now also compatible with Apple’s iPad. Other changes include an improved circuit board, new clock chip, higher grade connectors, and a better internal power supply. The remote control has also been redesigned for better ease of use.

We listened to the 171iTransport connected to an iPad in a system with Wadia’s 151PowerDac mini ($1195), Wadia’s 121 Decoding Computer (around $1500), a pretty little pair of Dynaudio’s outstanding Excite X12 loudspeakers (a steal at $1200/pair), and Argentum Acoustics cables, and the sound was sweet and involving.

The Wadia 171iTransport will be shipping to dealers this week.
