Apple Tablet


Recommended Posts

The lack of ram specification is pretty weird, I can't understand why that was left out unless for some unfathomable reason they left it at 256.

they do it because they're not selling the tech, they're selling the experience.

For those who want to connect their other iStuff...

"Apple Digital AV adapter, which also supports video output from the original iPad, iPhone 4 and current-generation iPhone 4 (sic), but mirroring will only be on the iPad 2. Video out supports up to 1080p for the iPad 2 and 720p for the original iPad, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch."

Airplay?

Please excuse my ignorance but,

How would this get pumped into my USB/optical DAC?

Would I need some type of wireless adapter or

<cringe> need to buy an Airplay enabled DAC? (if they even exist)

I've seen Airplay enabled speaker setups and a few Sony and Denon amps that support this.

I'm also seeking something that outputs music at least on par with flac files.

Or is the realistic alternative a MacBook with optical out or a PC server like I have now?

Airport Express (refurbs $50 on CowBoom today)/AppleTV as mentioned. Some USB DACs using Camera Connection kit (unknown on iPad 2). Also plenty of USB coax/opti adapters (unknown on iPad 2). I've used the Airport Express, U-Control uca202 (toslink) and HA Info USB-coax to connect Parasounds and Lavrys.

Also FLAC Player iOS app will let you play those FLACs.

We don't know AirPlay quality do we (from iDevices)? Sounds good to me, but not AB tested. Regular AirPlay is bit-perfect.

Monkey, I'm not sure that I understand "73", but thanks anyway. :lol:

blessingx thanks for your input as well.

Your mention of quality and bit perfect has me wondering.

Might there be delays or drop-outs on this type of device versus a caable connection?

Here again, I'm a total apple n00b so exscuze my estupidness. :unsure:
