This is the new age for iPod!

The Smiths, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: If you own an iPod and you have an AV Receiver for your home cinema with a spare audio in (I use coaxial) then you have to buy this appliance! It produces CD player quality music from your iPod that appears only limited by the quality of your front speakers. A song that always showed the limitations of regular iPod docks was Radioactive by Imagine Dragons. This device allows your speakers to play the complete bass of that song without distortion.

Cambridge ipod ipad dock

Amazon
7 November 2013
  • Summary: This is a great ipod ipad digital connection interfase, it just do what it is suppose to do and it does very well, out of it you get a digital stream out of your ipod or ipad that through a good DAC like the DacMagic 100 make a fantastic audio source in a very small package, I would recommend it.

"Critical compatibility questions"

Amazon
26 June 2013
  • Summary: The Cambridge iD100, unfortunately, is not compatible with all digital "pre-amps." I purchased the McIntosh D100 Digital Pre-amp, powered by McIntosh's MC302 300W Stereo Amp. I connected the Cambridge iD100 unit first using the "optical" connection. I inserted the proper iPod interconnect & then my updated iPod. Any music I played through "Music" on the iPad repeatedly skipped. So, I then removed the "optical" connection and switched to the "coaxial" connection.

Buyer Beware

Tony McCarthy, Amazon
10 January 2013
  • Summary: From the info given and the video demo, you might think that this is an all in one solution.... this is NOT a Digital analogue converter as the price of it might indicate.... its just a high priced dock.... sure it allows you to extract a "pure digital signal" from your Ipod, but you then need an external DAC... to convert it to a playable analogue signal... those are not so easy to find and are expensive...

Cambridge Audio iD100 Black

Harimohan P. Singh "hsingh0", Amazon
4 December 2012
  • Summary: I am having problems with the device delivered to me. I am using it in India, or else I would have gotten back much earlier. The remote control does not work. I thought may be the Lithium batteries supplied with the unit were dead. I changed them but still it does not work. I like the TOS-link Optical output but if you have DAC and then problem of getting the video connection to the AV Receiever becomes not you would want.

Awesome all-digital dock

Amazon
29 October 2012
  • Summary: Works great with my iPad 3, iPhone 4S. All-digital output works automatically. Stable and large enough. I'm pairing it to the Cambridge DacMagic 100 which is going out to Emotiva powered monitors.

  • Summary: Works well with my Burson and Music Hall DACs, but apparently too much jitter to maintain a stable signal with the Wyred 4 Sound DAC2.

iD100 delivers great sound!

Amazon
15 March 2012
  • Summary: Works great, and sound quality is excellent. Set up was a breeze as I hooked my iD100 to a Pioneer AVR. I wish the price would have been a little lower, but it does everything I wanted it do.

Excellent Value And Fine Sounding

J. White, Amazon
13 March 2012
  • Summary: Of all the audiophile iPod docks out there in my opinion this one provides the best sound per dollar spent. In fact as far as I can tell it sounds every bit as good and maybe better than some competitors costing hundreds of dollars more. The unit is very easy to setup and get going. Great sound. Great value.
