    Hi,

    Is using an iPod touch and streaming internet radio through an app on a speaker dock the same quality as a dedicated internet radio or is one better than the other?

    Many Thanks.

    The quality of the information stream coming in will be the same on both. The quality difference will exist once the data hits the DAC, amplifier and speakers. That will then depend on how good the ipod/dock combination is compared to your internet radio for sound quality.

    Excellent many thanks larkone, it seems the station i listen to the most (talksport) has the poorest quality as when i tried others they were much better.

    Went for an ideck 100 for fifty notes which seems a bit of a bargain.

    Thanks again
