The Mobile In ADC specs are up to 24-bit/48 kHz.
Guitar input : 110 dB dynamic range
Line Input : 98 dB dynamic range
Ultimately the iOS audio codec is going to dictate what quality the audio files are encoded at. At the same time, the quality of the audio conversion can only go as high of a resolution as the hardware can support. So even if the iOS codec could do say 192 kHz, you still would be limited by the codec used by the hardware to input the signal.
I was unable to find specs for Apple's iOS 5.0 core audio codec at this time, however the Mobile In is capable of encoding audio up to 24-bit/48 kHz. So essentially you can ensure that the Mobile In can encode up to those specs if the current iOS audio codec is capable of it.

What would be REALLY SWELL is a full set of tech specs on the Mobile In!
Any chance we might see that? You know, input level range, frequency response, distortion, all that kind of stuff.

That's just great.
What does it even mean to say the guitar input has 11dB dynamic range? I don't believe it could possibly be that low. That is probably the worst dynamic range spec I have ever seen anywhere: I think 78RPM records could beat it!
Could you check with the techies and give us some real numbers?
