List of DACs that work with iPad - Page 31

Oh, got it. Well, I'm planning to use my old laptop via USB into the Cantate, plus the iPad as a remote and e-reader, to hold me over until I get a proper music server. In any case I still listen without multitasking, so the quick start on the iPad is something I'll always like about it until I get a music server.

Anyone tried the audiolab 8200 series with IPAD 2/3 via the CCK?





Edit: It works.

Does the dac destroyer from hot audio work with the IPad?

Not to mention it feels good not to reboot the computer when I'm home from work. Somehow an iPad feels less "worklike".

I hope someone can clarify something for me. Does the CCK provide digital out or does it act as an LOD? If it does act as a digital out then does it defeat the purpose of a Algorhythm Solo or Fostex HP-P1. My understanding was that the CLAS and Fostex were the only devices that provided digital out. Thanks in advance.

With the CCK it does defeat the purpose of those other devices, but with limitations. Like your DAC must have it's own power source, be connected to a powered hub or dr. bott hub, or consume very little power.

Thank for the quick response. I've started experimenting with some battery powered USB DACs that I have here and ran into a bit of a problem.

 

I started playing some 24/96 FLAC files with FLAC Player to see if they are decoding at that rate, but cannot get the app to display the rate along with the Hardware decode rate which some folks have posted here and on other sites online. Maybe the newest FLAC Player version removed this feature? Thanks again.

Sorry, not really up on FLAC through an iPad.

It's cool thanks. I find it's playing back fine with an iBasso DB2/Rx MK3 combo. Flac Player isn't displaying the track resolution on any of the songs I've tried so far.

Check out this thread for good information sharing on Flac Player.

Just FYI, saw this over at Computer Audiophile regarding the iPad, CCK, and the Audioquest Dragon Fly:

 

"The headphone amplifier is 125mw unit so it's pretty hefty for such a small size. Because of the power required for the amplifier/line + analog volume control we could not keep the current draw below the iPad minimum for use with the Camera Connection kit.

Thanks
Gordon"

 

Anyone try it with a powered hub though?  From those power requirements, I would hazard a guess that it wouldn't run/be recognized with Dr. Bott's in the signal path. (?)

I'm happy to report that the Leckerton UHA-6S MKII works perfectly with the iPad. HERE is my review of the Leckerton - I'm using it as a bedside rig at the moment, with CCK and Heir Audio 4.A customs. Very nice!

This does the trick for me, maintaining some semblance of portability with the iPad:
http://www.amazon.com/T3Hub-USB-2-0-Hub-Black/dp/B00170O2Q0/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1342799917&sr=1-2&keywords=T3+hub

The HRT Headstreamer works with it but it didn't sound good with the iPad even though it sounds great with my Macs (iMac, MB Air, MB Pro)
But the Berringer UCA202/UCA222 works fine.
post #464 of 897
I take that back. I just tried the Headstreamer with the T3 hub again on the iPad and it sounds great! Must have been a glitch before.

Has anyone tried the Audio-gd NFB-16 (with built-in battery)? Will it work without a powered USB hub?
