The Forest is well reviewed but is not the top Audioquest USB cable. However none of them say Made for iPod so don't raise your hopes! I think they will probably sound better when feeding the digital stream than a standard cable between an Idevice and a dock like the ND-S1, the CA or Wadia docks or an idevice docking port on an amp.
 
Back to DAC: I've done the Bitzie vs Dutch NOS comparison and would be interested in what you (and anyone else) think Bob.

On their website it says they are all made for iPod and iPhone.

I stand corrected and hope they will connect an iPod (or iPhone) to a Bitzie.

Well, I have to say the more I read their blurb the more confused I amConfused.
Is it me or does the line "a computer connected to a USB-enabled digital-to-analog converter can outperform the best compact disc players available today" seem a little bold? If it's true then 'bye, bye CD'

if I were a betting man, I'd say the aoudioquest cables won't work.

I'd be very doubtful about the audio quest cable too. Their web page was full of gobbledygook while omitting to answer the question that loads of people must be asking.

As for CDs being history - they'll be around as a legacy carrier for a while but I bet vinyl outlives 'em!
