We're reserving final judgment until we find out a bit more than we know right now, but it seems this iPod / iPhone docking station can pull fidelity out of thin air. Reportedly, the unit utilizes Sonic Focus technology to "to upscale and refine compressed music and soundtracks to 96kHz / 24-bit quality," but we're pretty sure you're going to get out what you put in, generally speaking. Nevertheless, we'll keep you posted on any developments.
