Does the dock have a true audio line out ?

As per Apple online doc it's claimed that this dock features an audio line out and headphone out. How does it come?

If iPhone volume control works (which does) then it's not a fixed level audio output hence it's not a true line out but a double amping scenario which is exactly what i wanted to avoid when i purchased this dock.

Could you enlighten me?

  • Volume control in all Apple devices is just digital processing of the gain, It is not volume control like in the analog world, So when you set the phone's volume to 100% and the DSP to off (equalizer) the phone is outputting raw digital stream with no processing, therefore what is output at the dock's 3.5mm jack is true line out level, If you start lowering the volume or messing with the equalizer it becomes something else.
