Anyone tried the audiolab 8200 series with IPAD 2/3 via the CCK? Edit: It works.
I'm lucky that I'm not experiencing any of the hissing even when the computer is turned off.   I am using a 3-pin UK plug. There's a section in the manual under "Avoiding Hum and Noise" which points out several causes for hums and hisses in the system; have a go at them.   Just curious, do you guys leave the speakers ON when powering the computer or just leave the speakers on irregardless?   I emailed EMOTIVA support and they say it's ok to leave te speakers...
Right out of the box, they were not really impressive, they sounded closed in and boomy. But after a week, they sound more airy and natural. The bass has firmed up noticeably as well.   I would say they are really good for vocals, instrumental music, and rock in general, but not so much for electronics. YMMV.

How about the EMOTIVA PRO airmotiv 4?
Just got this and I must say the resolution is phenomenal. Being a fan of Grado sound, I welcome the sweet clarity it provides. And the Comply tips are a nice touch; I m impressed with how comfortable and conforming they are. Personally, the foam tips provide a better seal than the silicone tips. Because of the better seal, the music sound 'meatier' or more 'full-bodied'. Just wish the housing were made of better material than plastic, but tts just me nit-picking:D
Any interest in this?   Some info from Digital Audio Blog http://www.digitalaudioblog.com/2011/06/teac-ud-h01-usb-dac.html    
How about the Focal CMS series?   
Hi Dannytang   Thx for the reply :)   Guess that's an option, but am afraid that it'll distort the sound.   According to the manual, we're supposed to max out the volume on the computer, but I find the sound coming out sounds "strained". As such, I adjust the volume to about 60-70% on the comp and adjust the audinst volume knob as required to get the 'sweet' spot.   I'm trying to avoid having to do the same when I hook up the audinst to a dedicated amp....
