As soon as I woke up and saw the announcement of the CEntrance MixerFace a few days ago, I did a quick read, watched the video, and became the first backer.
Seriously I can't wait, and at that hot-of-the-press price it's a STEAL!
@Evshrug I agree with you, and I know of two such devices for HDMI audio. One of them is Essence HDACC, but it can only decode HDMI uncompressed stereo only. Here's a link from Digital Audio Review:
Microsoft kinda did state that they would re-implememt Dolby D or some sort of alternative for legacy TOSLINK devices, but I would like to see a HDMI receiver that can process uncompressed HDMI...
Just a quick post (and recent owner of the AKG K712 Pro headphones); for gaming I use the Turtle Beach EarForce DSP v1 as that has Headphone Dolby. I plug my Xbox 360 optical output into it, and then use a small 3.5 mm male to male interconnect to plug into my JDS Labs C5 amp.
Unfortunately the Xbox One does NOT have DolbyD output, so unless I can find a stereo/multichannel HDMI DSP device that can also be used for multichannel purposes for headphones (not actual...
Just gonna say, listening to Nero's Welcome Reality, Jimi Hendrix's Valley's of Neptune, and Shiro Sagisu's Music from "Evangelion:3.0" You Can (not) Redo* soundtrack has been a most seminal moment.
*(The latter is not the theatrical soundtrack but expanded; it is the original music pieces which were then cut later for the film, of which I have the theatrical soundtrack also).
The Heir Audio 4.Ai does not have the visceral bass impact I like, but because of that the music...
Here is my current source and playback equipment, DAC/AMP:
CEntrance HiFi-M8 4XL iDevice version.
Ver: 0.0.34 (taken from the iPod Classic About Menu. Pretty cool!).
iPod Classic 6G, Silver, 160GB, 1st Version (no revision) from Sept 2007:
Model: MB145 (taken from iPod Classic About Menu).
Model: A1238 (taken from back of iPod Classic).

I too have met audio disconnects when taking the power supply plug out from the HiFi-M8 whilst listening to music. I...
So, I got my CEntrance HiFi-M8 XL4 iDevice on Mon, originally purchasing it in January.For its arrival I have been creating a new iTunes library and re-organising my 160GB iPod Classic 6G 1st Version (no revision) circa Sept 2007.---As a side note, the 6G iPod Classic 3rd Version (2nd Revision) circa Sept 2009 is often mistaken as the 7G, which does not exist atm. Check this link out.Indeed, Apple have not update the iPod Classic line since 2009, yet...--- [[SPOILER]]...
This post was originally going to be quite long (still is...), but I realised that I need fast, accurate anwsers (or advice) in regards to the CEntrance HiFi-M8.
I have done about as much research as I can regarding source selection for my HiFi-M8 and the best configuration of the HiFi-M8 itself.
Essentially, I want to know if I need to change my original choice of the HiFi-M8 to better match my equipment.
First up, source...
@ Achmedisdead: Sorry for the late reply.
I always assumed that this was the case and that the community has mistakenly misunderstood the 2nd revison (3rd version) of the iPod Classic, but I wanted to be absolutley sure.
Thank you. :D
