  1. Hi, First of all, I apologise for making my first post nothing more than a request for advice. Hopefully, I'll be able to contribute something in return as time passes. I own an iPod Classic 160GB. I've read that Apple does allow manufacturers to produce DACs that can access the raw digital stream (ie. allow you to bypass the internal DAC) but it requires a license. Such DACs appear to be as rare as hen's teeth, however, though Wadia appears to do some. I was hoping someone here might have knowledge of a portable version of such a thing, something having the same proportions and functionality as the Fiio E7 (which I currently use). It's something I'm having difficulty performing a web search for - I can't seem to come up with a good set of terms. The chief aim is to eventually use such a device between my iPod Classic and a pair of Grado MS-1 headphones (or AKG 450s) to listen to ALAC copies of my CDs. Thanking you in advance
