Frequency Response Measurement of Logitec LIC-iREC03P
There haven been a few requests regarding a recently released line input device called the Logitec LIC-iREC03P. To add to the frequency response measurements done previously, we decided to add this new device to the group.
This measurement was made using an iPod Touch 2G. As before, the audio was routed through the phone using SignalScope Pro, and the measurement includes the response of the iPod’s headphone output.
When compared to the previous measurements, the Logitec has the lowest 3dB point of all the devices tested (around 5 Hz). One problem with this device is the availability. Currently, it appears to only be available from Japan. I was able to order it fairly painlessly from geekstuff4you.com, but your mileage may vary. Another possible issue is the fact that the dock connector is pretty loose, and the device itself doesn’t sit flush against the iPod, so it can wiggle around quite a bit while plugged in. While this didn’t affect these measurements negatively, if durability is a big priority for you, you might want to stay away.
If you’re looking for a simple line input device with a flat response, and you don’t mind slightly flimsy construction, this may be the way to go.
