RE: Mysterious Problem - 12 Ipod docks damaged

I've never ever heard of such a problem, so have no idea what's happening. Voodoo perhaps? :?

RE: Mysterious Problem - 12 Ipod docks damaged

I think we need to know what kind of music it is you're playing. The wrong type of music, not suited to the equipment,  could cause this problem.

RE: Mysterious Problem - 12 Ipod docks damaged

With all due respect, given the evidence and symptoms, and seeing that no-one else has had this problem, diagnosing it 'remotely' over a forum is always going to be a matter of guesswork and conjecture I'm afraid. Sounds like the OP is doing something to cause physical damage. But we just can't tell.

RE: Mysterious Problem - 12 Ipod docks damaged

Thank you all for your feedbacks. I really appreciate that you are considering my issue.

As for the type of music i play, i don't think its anything special, some pink martini, some pop music, 80's etc.

I recently downloaded from 7digital the songs of LONDON GRAMMAR, Images (frech artist)  which i played on a cd in my car, and when i skipped to track 4, the cd couldnt play the track, then i skiiped till track 6 (mika) it took some time to start the plaback. after that i skipped to track 9 and then while playing that song, the damage occured as in all my other systems...

Hope this might help.

Today i am taking my zeppelins to an audio engeneer to try to diagnose the problem.

Thank you everyone.

Dear Petheric,

CAn a 320,000 bit rate high quality mp3 track downloaded from 7digital be causing that?

Have you tried any music that's not been bought from 7digital?

RE: Mysterious Problem - 12 Ipod docks damaged

Hey Bigboss, yes now i am using my ipod nano 7 docked on a NEW NAD VISO 1 that i bought, and i have put on that ipod only original cds that i have. (kylie minogue, pink martini, gypsy king etc...) i think its sound fine untill now. 

I am scared that i might have a virus on my itunes that is damaging my songs, or that simply doesnt exist on IOS devices?

many thanks

OP means original poster, the one who starts the thread. You're the OP for this thread.

RE: Mysterious Problem - 12 Ipod docks damaged

can a high quality, fast signal 320 kbps damage any component? like a DAC or crossover?

So it's not the tracks, nor the electricity, what else can it be ?

I think what was meant was if you're playing music with heavy bass at high volumes on small dock systems that aren't designed for it you might be destroying the speakers through abuse.

RE: Mysterious Problem - 12 Ipod docks damaged

Thanks  The_Lhc

But to answer you, no i dont go above 60-70 % and my tracks are regular tracks with no particular emphasis on any frequency. even so how can it damage all my stereo system in such a small time span? even my car's! i mean i did a cd with 18 tracks 320kbps, and i inserted it to play it in the cars slot, what happened is that i couldnt skip above track 3, a first in my experience. and  all of these tracks are ones i recently downloaded from 7Digital. i have played hundred of cds on my cars stereo, never had an issue.  i can't think of any reason besided that its the tracks thats the problem, but as you see the experts are saying that no tracks can do such a thing.
