Nice waste. Just another reminder that there are lots of dumb people out there; in case Apple were not sufficient.

I don't get this.
The retail price for this behemoth is said to be a staggering $30 000!
Yet, since the Iphone/Ipod is the device playing the songs, it won't even support a bunch of popular lossless codecs like Flac or ape.
I mean if you dosh out such a big sum on having a great music experience and you then get limited on the get go!

10KW of music is not a "great music experiance". It's just a power hog and loud. And cheap at the power rating so most likely it'll sound like crap no matter the signal source.

You forget that this is targeted at fans of Apple products. It doesn't have to make sense from a price/performance perspective, it just has to be related to a piece of fruit.

IGNORANTS, apple have a lossless audio encoder that you can use in itunes when you import music from a CD or simply convert a "FLAC" song to "WMA losseless" and then to "apple loseless" and it is fully compatible whith the ipod iphone and ipad products, its call "Apple loseless codec" and it uses a .m4a extension and in the songs i have tried to convert have reached a bit rate of up to 1048kbps

^"IGNORANTS"

Irony is a beautiful, beautiful thing.
Yes, I'm aware that Apple has a lossless codec, however, that doesn't mean that the product is worth 30,000 dollars (not sure on the price, simply commented based on in_the_loop's comment).

Just a small question:
How do they isolate the iPod or the iPhone from the energy of the sound?
Even if 95% of the sound is directed away from the device I doubt that iPod and iPhone were built for such vibrations. Has anybody tetsted the endurance of the devices?
