    which HU has digital output from an ipod

    I am getting confused about which head units from alpine (or other brands)
    actually get a digital signal out of an ipod and send it to the internal DAC .
    I am reading a lot a different opinions on this.

    From the alpine website, it seems that the w505's, ida's and ixa-w404
    work that way but I have heard different stories.

    I want a HU that could sent the digital information straigh from the ipod
    through the head unit and then through an optical cable staight to my
    processor(soon to be an pxa-h900 with dead display) to take advantage
    of the DAC's of that unit

    I have mp3's and acc's but will start to get a lot more apple
    lossless as I am getting a better system. Also, I have an ipod
    classic (80g), but willing to buy any ipod that would work for
    this.
