Product Description

An Incredible Value and Striking Digital Statement 


Music Direct now offers an amazing new value in digital sound: purchase a Wadia 121 Decoding Computer DAC  and a iTransport 171 with a Creative Cable Green Hornet digital cable. Your iPod, iPad, or iPhone never had it so good.

In addition to their reference-level $20,000+ digital players, Wadia has been altering the audio landscape for audiophiles over the last few years. Their revolutionary iTransport unleashed the digital signal from the iPod, changing the perception of the device completely. In development for the last three years, this new Digital-to-Analog converter (with high-end built-in preamplifier and headphone amplifier) is worlds ahead of anything else at this price. This tool is one you’ll need to audition for yourself to understand the magical sound possessed by the Wadia 121.

Wadia has upped the ante with the iTransport 171. This new model receives some serious performance enhancements. Upgraded internal power supply, higher quality circuit boards and a superior clock for vanishingly low jitter, audiophile grade capacitors and resistors, a beefy 24K gold chassis mount RCA connector for the coax digital out and by popular request, a Toslink output.

Creative Cable's Green Hornet, an Absolute Sound Golden Ear Award Winner is, by far, Music Direct's best-selling digital cable. The Green Hornet's ability to resolve digital information is astounding. Soundstaging, imaging and presentation of natural musical detail abound. Unlike other digital cables, the amazing Green Hornet measures a true 75 ohms from tip to tip, including connectors. The combination of this precise construction and the attention paid to reducing RFI absorption results in the one of the best digital cables in the world. The Green Hornet also has a Proprietary Fluid-Filled Dielectric making this cable impervious to any EMI-RFI issues! No other digital cable in this price range delivers such a smooth sound with its level of detail, resolution and articulation. A revelation with any transport/DAC combo. Included in the Harry Pearson's The Absolute Sound Ultimate Systems review.
