iphone music


I would like to know how to play my Pandora iphone app through my home tube amp set up. I have an arcam rdac, what is the best way to hook this up?

Best way: Get a dock for your iPhone that has a digital out. Hook up a digital
cable from the digital out of the dock into your Arcam rdac, analog outs of the
rdac into your tube system. Examples, Cambridge iD100 or Pure i-20 (300 and
100 dollars)

Cheapest way: Get a mini to rca cable. Mini into the headphone jack, rca's into
you tube system. You will be using the iPhones internal dac. Nowhere near
your Arcam but it gets the job done and it's actually not that bad.
Third option: If your iPhone is pre-Lightning. Get a dock to RCA cable. Analogue to your system but bypassing the internal headphone amp. RAM Electronics have decent cables for $30.

I love the HRT iStreamer DAC for this. Everything you need for $200 except the RCA cable from the DAC to your preamp/integrated. I like four things about it:

1) It bypasses the internal DAC. Sounds pretty damn good for $200. This works not only for your iTunes music and ripped files, but also for anything streaming to the device, such as Pandora, internet radio, YouTube videos or movies.

2) Very portable. I can leave an RCA cable attached to multiple preamps/integrateds around the house and just bring the iStreamer to another room if I wish. It can also be powered from a cigarette lighter adapter and used in the car if your stereo has RCA inputs for an aux source.

3) It charges the iPhone while you are using it.

4) I use a longer RCA cable from the DAC to the preamp so I can keep the iPhone/iPod/iPad next to me. It's nice when I want to hop around from internet station to internet station.
Look, I am asking a specific question here regarding my set up. Why is that a goners feel the compulsion to use the forum to tell us about their personal preferences. This has nothing to do with my question what so ever.
Welcome to the asylum,its all good if you know how to read between the lines,cheers,James
Fromunda,

Was there something in my post that you did not understand?
Sorry dude, sometimes I mistake someone asking for instructions for someone asking for suggestions. Just trying to be helpful, no need to take offense.

Onemug and Metralla answered your question if you were looking for instructions.

If I were you I would get a dock that has the Apple licensed chip for digital out. The point is to get your rDAC doing the conversion and get some enjoyment out of it.

For that, Onemug's suggestions would do it. Another is the Onkyo ND-S1.

Another thing is to ask Arcam or the place you bought if from. Might save you from having to read our non-specific ramblings.
No I was not responding to your post. Yours was very helpful thanks!!!

Onemug answered your question in the 1st post. Do you want 10 people to say the same thing? Did it not work?
Say thank you and hook up your phone.
Enjoy!

It is my opinion that you should be more pleasant next time you need assistance. Three good nice members came to help out and what is it that you are complaining about?
Kind regards

you are right...I will let it rest. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today.
Thanks Metralla..this is just a dock cable I can buy.. correct? It has nothing to do with getting a dock to utilize the Arcam DAC does it?
