Hi Fi iPad speakers
When I travel with my wife I would like to take our extensive library of clasical music with us. To listen we need decent portable Hi Fi speakers. Questions
1. Do they have to be bluetooth?
2. Can a battery operated system such as Logitech or Phillips Fidelio really give adequate volume?
3. Mains powered speakers such as Nakamichi can give incredible sound from quite small speakers. Can the iPa feed such speakers?
You don't need BlueTooth speakers, but they are convenient. You can use any type of speakers with your iPad that uses a 3.5mm stereo plug like those made for computer systems.
And a bit off topic, but you might want to check out Classic Cat Classic Cat - the free classical music directory
They have over 6000 classical music performances that are in the public domain. Some are lesser-known "up and coming" artists and ensembles, but also many college orchestras. They are in .MP3 format and can be downloaded and added to your iTunes library.
It is also from this site that I discovered the podcasts from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. They have two podcasts a month featuring some of the finest classical performances I have ever heard!
