The UK’s favourite hi-fi brand has now turned its attention to the iPad and
has engineered what it believes to be the most technologically advanced dock
yet. The iD100 adds a huge leap in convenience to transform the iPad into a true
audiophile device as well as delivering epic results from the iPhone and iPod.
Taking a digital audio feed revolutionises what’s possible from an iPad and
the iD100’s carefully considered design allows maximum extraction of every last
drop of data from the world’s favourite tablet. Supporting all Apple file types
including lossless, bit-perfect low jitter digital data is then fed to an
external DAC (such as Cambridge Audio’s DacMagic) or AV Receiver using its
digital input for the best possible digital to analogue conversion.
It’s not just about music either, the iD100 is designed to support the
growing number of users who store or stream video on their devices allowing
enjoyment of portable content like YouTube, iTunes, iPlayer and much more on the
big screen .
And as listening shifts from stored to streaming services, the iD100
maximises the quality of music streaming Apps like Spotify, Pandora, Rhapsody,
Last FM and others.
For the ultimate in convenience, the iD100 is supplied with a full remote
enabling armchair control of iPod content, activation of iTunes syncing and even
charging of the connected iPhone, iPod or iPad. By switching off charging, any
possible interference between the Apple device and hi-fi system is completely
Like all Cambridge Audio designs, the iD100 is an object lesson in design
simplicity. Constructed from solid aluminium and available in elegant black or
silver finishes, the iD100 will be right at home within any home entertainment
system and is designed to complement other Cambridge Audio products.
Supplied with a range of adapters, the iD100 can accommodate virtually any
iPod, iPhone or iPad and to ensure it’s as kind on the environment as your ears,
it also features an environmentally friendly low power (<1w) standby circuit.
